Recent guest reviews

the staff was very nice, but thats the best thing I can say about this hotel. We walked into a fowl smelling room...the first thing we did was go to walmart to buy air fresheners. I killed a roach within the first 10 minutes of being there...the next morning I killed a dont know....exterminator?..... the linens were old...they were stained.... but I was there for military graduation...and by the second night, I was too tired to look for more bugs....and the air freshener helped alot.

I booked this room ahead of time based on location and price for our daughters graduation from Air Force BMT. Then I read the reviews.... I must say I was concerned and worried about what we would encounter when we got there. Unlike other reviewers, we had a good experience. Our linens were old, but clean, and the same for the room. I had no fear for safety or security of ourselves or our property. Room was cleaned and towels exchanged when we wanted them to be. I don't know what people expect for this price, but I must say that our 5 day stay was perfectly acceptable and I would be comfortable staying at this Rodeway again!

We stayed here when my brother in law was graduating, as a last minute stay after driving for 13 hours. Sheets were so disgusting with makeup and hair on sheets and pillow cases. had to change everything in room completely. Lady in front could of cared less. NEVER AGAIN

I wish I would have read the reviews before we booked this hotel. The management responses to the prior bad reviews states they will make improvements to ensure future visits are better. They have not improved. The linens were grossly stained. The bedspread was stained and had holes in it. We usually love the smaller motels because they have more charm to them but they need decent linens and the room needs to be clean. We won't stay here again. I don't usually write bad reviews but I hate to see other people book their rooms here.

It was approximately 6 miles from Lackland. I was side tracked thinking it was located near Lackland Base so thought it would be good for travelers. The linen was so nastily stained. There was blood on the bed skirt thing which looked fresh. The linen was so mix-matched and although housekeeping changed the towels everyday, they didn't really clean. I dropped a lysol wipe right near the nightstand of which would've been seen while making the bed and when I returned, it was still there. The place gave me the creeps and it not already been prepaid, I would've left. That's the con of buying rooms on 3rd party sites. Nothing positive at all including the breakfast. I asked for water and she pointed to an empty, dirty looking pitcher. I walked clear out the door; didn't want anything!

We stayed here for BMT Graduation Jan 25 to30. Upon entering the room there was an overwhelming pine sol smell but the room was visually not clean and mirrors were smudged. Bedding had lots of holes in blankets on the bed. Dingy white linens. Friday morning there was no hot water to take a shower. It was reported to a woman at the front desk, no apology was offered. She had a large sheet that she was circling room numbers of other guests who had no hot water as well. Saturday morning there were several cockroaches scurrying around in the bathroom.

It was OK. The price was right and it's close to base but the neighborhood is shady. Breakfast wasn't stocked and had to look for someone to refill coffee and other drinks. It definitely did not feel safe to be outside after dark. If you need a cheap place to stay and aren't fussy on ANY level, then I guess it's ok. But if you want something a little nicer there are plenty of places to choose from in the same price range. Friends stayed about 10 mins from base and had a GREAT room for $6 more a night. The bit of an extra drive is well worth it.

Tried staying here for my son's graduation at Lackland. Stayed one night, woke up in the morning and there were roaches. Informed the front desk of a problem and said that if something wasn't done, we would be leaving. We went to graduation that day and came back to inform them we would be leaving. They said they would charge us for the rest of our entire stay. It's one thing to say we got there too late after the long day of graduation to get out of our 2nd night. But they said they would charge me for my whole 6 night stay. Bottom Line....just because it is closer to base and cheaper doesn't mean you should stay here.

The bathroom was neat and hotel looked nice. But the bed didn't feel properly cleaned and had stains. Tried to sleep on pull out bed but saw dead bugs and old food as soon as I opened it up. Floor did not look like it had been vacuumed. Would not stay here again.

It was great, really enyojed my stay. Would visit again. The rooms were nice and clean, loved the pool. Very friendly staff. The breakfast was good, loved the texas shaped waffles. I would highly reccomend.
