Rodeway Inn2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I spent a lot of time on the phone trying to book a pet-friendly hotel in the Millville, NJ, region. Rodeway Inn in Vineland was purported to be the only such hotel so I booked a room, confirming its pet-friendly status. When I arrived, the first thing I saw was a large handwritten sign taped to the bulletproof window (take note) declaring "NO PETS." As I had decided at the last minute not to bring my dog, I decided to keep the reservation, but warn potential visitors that "pet-friendly," in this case, doesn't mean you can bring your pets. And I'm not sure why: the hotel is not in great shape. Worse than that, the neighborhood is very sketchy and there is no deadbolt or chain on the door to the room, which in my case was right on the street!
I showed up at the hotel around 10 pm after driving nine hours so just wanted somewhere to relax and snooze. The guy at the window was shaggy looking and smelled like he hasn't showered in years. We got room 210 went in and it looked like a hooker house. Ceiling was falling down, smelled horrible and carpets were stained. I didn't want to stay because I felt nasty just standing there. Went down and asked for a refund and explained everything to him and he said he refused to give our money back. But he gave us a new room. Room 220 was just as nasty I left without the refund and went across the street. Don't waste your time here, There was a few guys that looked suspicious walking around the motel over and over again.
Check in staff was rude and didn't appear to know what he was doing. We were not aloud in the lobby, only had a small entry way to be in. He was argumentative. There were socks found in the room which appeared not to be clean. The bathroom had mold on the bath tub. Returned later that evening to ask for a wash cloth, gentleman stated that we could not get anything after 6 pm and had to return after 9 am and was extremely rude about it. Was never told about breakfast and was not offered it. Worse experience I've ever had
My husband and I stayed here after being displaced. Mr. and Mrs. Shaw (the owners) were extremely rude and when the check we had been waiting for for a couple of months arrived there, they posted "return to sender" and this has had a significant impact on our lives. Filthy place, filthy people. Drugs and prostitution...they should be shut down immediately.
I was overchaged for a total amount of $57.78 for rental at the Econo Lodge in Vineland, NJ. We had to evacuate where I lived because of "Sandy." We preregistered with Econo Lodge in Vineland, NJ and arrived prior to the storm with a rate of $45.00 (senior citizen rate) with $15,00 additional per dog. Since I had 2 dogs my daily rate should have been $75.00 per day. Two day total $150.00. According to their site there was a $15.00 tax and miscellaneous fee for 2 days so my total should have been $165.00. I was actually charged $186.28 - an overcharge of $21.28. We were forced to stay an additional day because of the storm and I was charged $126.50 - which was clearly an overcharge of $36.50 since the law clearly states that since Governor Christie declared New Jersey a Disaster Area hotels were not permitted by law to raise the rental rates for someone who had to extend their stay. I did question the Manager about the rate and was told they felt they were within their rights to raise the rates because of the storm and their were no rooms for people plus that other hotels in the area were doing the same. I explained the law as it pertains to an area being declared a Disaster Area but she told me that wasn't true.. She explaiend that they charged 15% tax and miscellaneous expenses. I told he her site clearly showed a $15.00 fee and not a percentage. It clearly didn't matter to her. It is grossly unfair for people to take advantage of others when a disaster strikes. This is a poor way of doing business and I recommend that people rent any place other than Econo Lodge. I am making a formal Consumer Complaint with the State of New Jersey against Econo Lodge.
we were told to leave our homes due to mandatory evacuation. Exposed wiring in heater air conditioner. Doors do not lock had to use a block of wood and a bar. Strange and eerie people hanging around. They probably live there. I was afraid to walk the dog. Price gouging. no continental breakfast as advertised. I cant believe Econo Lodge/ Choice Hotels allows there name on this place. Outside a pool is covered with roofing material which is nailed down. The plastic that was once under the stones is all loose. Animal feces never cleaned up. i used my perfume to try to get smell from room. when i was allowed back home the first thing I did was give the dog a bath.
I evacuated to Econo Lodge in a hurry because of Hurricane Sandy. The prices were ridiculously high, the staff was rude and ignorant, and the rooms were NASTY!!!!! No air conditioning or heat, the fridge didn't work, no blow dryer or coffee maker, the sheets smelled like urine, no wifi, and just dirty All over. Do not spend a dime here.
After getting the bait and switch I decided I'd rather stay anywhere else. I'm sure I wasnt missing much as it looks like project style crack house apartments. The front desk (old middle eastern lady) was extremely rude and up charged me $50 when I got there! I travel and stay in hotels 250 days/ year and trust me this was as bad and unscrupulous as the hotel industry has ever been for me. If you are crazy and stay here check your acct for billing SUPRISES!
We had no choice but to stay here when a tornado hit the area and "most" of Vineland was without power. They charged us $190 for one night, wouldn't accept my AAA card and after leaving, we found out, we had been charged for 4 cats (which we don't own) and for another person. It was only my husband and I. The room was soooooo nasty. The curtain was falling from the sliding door and the balconies connect. The person staying next to us could have climbed onto our balcony and came right into our room. The AC would not get the room cool, we had 1 TV channel. No coffee pots, no clock, nothing! I contacted the manager and they were so ignorant and contradicted themselves over and over. This hotel is well known for prostitutes and drug activity. So anyone who wants to stay here, do so at your own risk!
Booked hotel without reading trip advisor, my mistake! Booked because they would take my 2 dogs as we were in the area for a dog show. Paid the additional pet fee X 2 for 2 nights. Very scary indeed. Was there with my 14 year old son, we were both scared, I slept in my clothes. Yelling outside at 12:30 at night, kept tv on so not to hear the cursing. Agreed with previous poster of the shady characters out in the parking lots, that you don't want to meet in a dark alley. Packed up and didn't stay second booked night. Disgusting.......
