Recent guest reviews

the entire hotel was not inviting - dirty tub/shower, towels smelled, AC unit damaged, hallway floors dirty, continental breakfast nothing was kept sufficiently cold that should have been. Will never stay at a Roseway Inn property again if we can help it

Rated four star on the “under $75 on a Saturday night” scale of stars. For a cheap place to stay on a cross country drive, this place is fine. The bathroom was recently renovated and in great shape, and the whole room had a fresh paint job. I got fresh clean linens. Walls are thick enough that I never heard my neighbors. The carpet is beyond tired, and the building needs some attention such as the back door that only locks if pulled shut hard. My main objection is that some nitwit installed fake room-darkening curtains that don’t actually close, so I was woken by the first light of dawn and lost two precious hours of sleep. Staff were super friendly and helpful. The afternoon manager got me a room close to the door so I could easily bring in my two hand truck loads of portable stuff, and the night manager helped me pick a parking spot where my truck was in view on his security camera. Morning manager let me park under the awning to reload the truck in the rain. Not a “nice family vacation” choice hotel, but fine for my needs and pretty good compared to others in the price category.

no towels in the room and no wash clothes. no breakfast by 8:30. Hallways needed to be vacuumed and receptionists boyfriend was in the reception area all day.

Black mold on bathroom walls and ceiling. Heater didn't work properly overall just not a very clean place.

The hotel was nothing as described on Orbitz. The hotel pool was filled with storage. The halls were littered with people almost like an apartment building. There were people cooking across the hall like they lived there. The front desk clerk arrived after several minutes of waiting, she explained there were issues with the doors. I was given 2 door keys and explained one is a master key and the other is my room key, I was instructed to try both. Neither key opened the door "while being watched from across the hall by some sketchy guys" I was alone and felt unsafe. I proceeded back down the stairs to the lobby "no elevator" and explained I felt unsafe. I explained I was planning to meet friends at the local casino and would be concerned if I could not enter my room alone later that night. I was told the front desk should have someone there to let me in my room I felt uneasy. I explained I didn't want to leave my belonging in the room due to the door issues making it inconvenient and that I would like a refund. I was told I can not have a refund. I advised the clerk I could not/would not stay in this hotel. I had already run my credit card and HAD to absorb the cost. NEVER AGAIN

Nice cheap motel around the area. Very friendly staff. Not too good Interest connection

Would not ever stay here again. It was awful and ran down.

not good, the pool no work, is old , not cleaner, the name the hotel is difernt

We needed a place for an event nearby and this place saved us money and we had a comfortable stay. We will definitely keep Rodeway in mind for the future.

The day was good... Annoying that my card room key reset Everyday even after it was set for the duration of the stay,..EVERYDAY! MOST IMPORTANT THING was the refrigerator did not work!!!!!!

Just needed a place to sleep. Not a vacation spot but perfect for a place to sleep and catch up on the new. Staff was very nice and professional. I suppose Espanola NM isn't really a destination spot but could be on the way to where your going. Hotel pricing was very good. Very fair deal.

My last night the hotel night shift manager woke me up at 1:15 AM threatening to throw me out of the hotel for partying and dancing in my room.

...That don't bother me at all! Oh wait. Yes, it definitely bothers me. The hotel stinks of smoke and mildew. Everything is run down and out-dated. There were multiple boogers and other unknown substances all over the walls of the room. The pillow cases and comforter were stained with dark unknown substances. The A/C unit was broken on the front but still provided cool air. They are extremely stingy on towels, soap, and tissues. The breakfast was cold and sugary: sugary cereals and sugary processed muffins. Yuck. There's not a whole lot of options in Espanola, but I think we would have been better off by staying at one of the many casinos in town.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating, even when I had to check out a night early due to a change in plans. They didn't charge me for the change, which was very kind. The swimming pool left something to be desired, so I avoided it. But the room was clean and comfortable. The only real challenge is that with its location on the street, you can only access it from one direction, so I had to turn around and double back several times during my trip--but that's not anything they can fix, and there's plenty of parking lots to u-turn in nearby!

We really enjoyed this hotel it was nice and quiet and most of all it was clean. the staff was very friendly and the location was great. If you are ever in area stay a night.

Although an old hotel, the stay here was great! Hotel staff were friendly, the rooms were clean, breakfast was delicious. The following day stay at a more expensive hotel had bad service (room service never stopped by to clean the room). I was very surprised to see that this hotel provided better service!

very clean and the management tries to make things neat, clean and tidy. I liked their pillows.

This was my second stay at this hotel. It's a very convenient location...On the major highway and near the intersections with the others. It's not a fancy place, nor with a fancy price, but for a clean, convenient place to stay, it's terrific. The complimentary breakfast buffet gets the day off to a good start.

I was afraid to walk on the carpet without my shoes on. The sheets were stained (I hope). It was noisy. I couldn't wait for morning.

Visiting Family in Espanola - hotel was clean - not flashy - everything in the room worked - nice breakfast - always love the malted waffles - fresh fruit - coffee is exceellent - local tourist ideas were supplied by the hotel staff - the museums were humble - the church in chamaya was a visit to remember
