Hotel Santa Rosa

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Under construction in parts of the building. First thing I am as told was that there would be no TV for several hours bout it at least was nicer than Motel 6 which was definitely not true.

Girlfriend and I wanted a special night out for cheap. The Rodeway has very nice rooms CONSIDERING the price. Thick walls that sound doesn't travel through very well.

Uncomfortable bed, noisey-like you can hear every other guest very clearly, horrible shower-water pressure equal to a steady drip, pretty much a hotel for prostitues and johns

Had no fridge or microwave. Room had not been cleaned yet when we checked in at 4:30.

Nice Continental breakfast. Easy access from freeway. Close to shops & sightseeing.

for the price ok. but pool was not heated nor cleaned, dirt & stuff on the bottom; needed skimming. I had picked up grandkids after a crosscountry flight at sfo. stayed at rodeway to break up trip home. They would not go in pool cause too dirty. A relaxing swim would have really helped them settle down for the night after travel. staff were so very busy... 1 counter person and someone doing laundry I did not want to bother them. Clean enough but room was very crowded, little space between furniture. Staff were courteous and helpful.

Breakfast was included. I reccomend the make-yourself-waffles, yummy.

Freeway noise with plaster dust and a painter working in the hallway after a 10PM check in.

Outside of hotel looked clean & well manicured. The hallways & rooms were another story. The hallways were dirty & dingy. The carpets in the room were dirty. The towels were descent for this hotel. The TV was too low. There were only 2 pillows on the bed. The breakfast was disgusting, & very slim. The manager stood in room to watch people. Definitely not worth what we paid. Don't be fooled. There is no remodeling being done on the premises.

I had the room service people open my suitcase & look into it. To me , there wasn't anything interesting, but I am sure they were looking for one?????? I won't stay there in the future even if it's the last hotel on earth,

stayed here twice...on arrival in CA and then again when I was leaving.....very clean...friendly service...got good directions for driving around...the local restaurant is GREAT....if I get a chance to repeat this trip...I will certainly stay here...

Nothing worked ice machine was broke phone cord was cut marijuana party next door no channels programmed in remote otherwise I guess price was right for the area

The The elevator was broken and the hall smelled. Its in an easy place to get on the Hwy though and there's a great diner right in front.

Perfect location for us. Bed and pillows comfortable. Had to ask for bath towels, hangars and washcloths. Cheapest soap and shampoo made. Cigarette burn, worn fabric, and dried something dripped on chair. Could hear neighbors moving about each night. Nice to have restaurant close because hotel continental breakfast was unacceptable.

My room had no coffee maker, no clock and the phone didn't work. I was moved to another room but that took some time. There was no decaf coffee with breakfast and the food was dismal. The bananas were rotten and everything else was packaged carbs. The young front desk clerk did his best to make things OK. He was the only good thing about my stay.

since the price is really cheap, really don't expect too much! however, it's definitely livable and has all the necessities. location is perfect. staff was really friendly. I was so dumb that i booked the date BEFORE the day i was supposed to live there! so i had to pay again= =...stupid of me, but the staff was very patient. rooms are decent, water pressure ok, the sink was in a very weird place, but who cares...it gets the job done. overall if u just needed to stay for the night, it was a good deal.

the location was exactly what I was looking for , the hotel is clean and neat, the rooms are tidy and the staff was friendly .

Eveything was okay. Nice pool. Very plain breakfast.

ANY FAVORABLE REVIEW OF THIS MOTEL IS A LIE. I read reviews before booking. They were mixed. But it was Friday night and everything under $250 was booked, so I reluctantly booked a room. There is extremely limited parking at the front of the motel. And when I went inside, a homeless and/or drunk dude sitting next to the entrance door asked me for change. When I went back to my car, he asked me for cigarettes. Make sure to bring plenty of both as it is evidently ok to feed the animals at this motel. When i went inside my non-smoking room, it smelled heavily of cigarette smoke. I went to the desk to complain, but the night clerk just told me all rooms are non-smoking. No customer service. No apology. No offer to relocate me. No offer to remedy the smoke. Luckily, i brought a can of Febreeze (by chance), and i thoroughly sprayed the room. The room had been remodeled some time in the past, apparently by Mr. Magoo. There was a large picture on the wall 3" from the ceiling. Lighting did not correspond to bed location. It looked like things were haphazardly put on the walls or placed in the room, including the bathroom sink. It did not look like "home" or inviting. The carpet was designed to hide dirt, but stains were apparent throughout. I had an uneasy feeling as I began to believe the negative reviews were true. I contemplated sleeping on the bed, not in it, but figured the bedspread was probably more dirty than the sheets from being put on the floor by guests. Eventually, I slipped in bed to watch TV. They do not use CLEAN REMOTES. The TV channels were too few and haphazardly numbered. There are 3 white noise screens on channels 16-18, which are extremely loud. I then felt something on my ear and realized SOMETHING WAS CRAWLING ON MY EAR! I quickly ran to the mirror and saw it was a flea. A FLEA!!! OMG!! I almost went to my car to sleep, but I was too tired and needed sleep. I awoke the next morning and quickly left the room. As I passed through the lobby, my favorite night clerk thanked me for my stay. Really? No, Thank You!

Looks better outside than inside but will do for one night. No breakfast
