    The location is excellent!

    The phone in the room did not work and part of the time the computer in the lobby was down. The cord for the hair dryer in the room would not reach the plug-in,

    Fabulous

    We were there on Wednesday evening, July 20th. The man working the desk, unfortunately I do not recall his name, was extremely helpful and courteous. The next employee that came on at 11 was also helpful. Our room temperature was warm and he brought a fan up very quickly.

    The only possibility was a bit of disorganization during breakfast time. Things ran out frequently and guests had to go and ask for things to be refilled.

    The location of this hotel is excellent as it is near to the historic district and also the downtown and shopping district. The beds are also quite comfortable.

    The service from the reception staff (all three I dealt with) was atrocious. One f the girls was openly disinterested in any request I made and sighed out loud if I made a request aa she was checking her Internet dating page. She failed to fix a draughts/heating problem in my room so when I returne my hotel on the first night I had to raise it with the second reception staff member who was on duty at that time. He toll almost 2 hours to assess that he couldn't fix the problem so I ended up going to bed at 2am. He informed me that I could stay in a new room for the rest of my stay. However, the third memberof the reception staff phoned me up five hours later at 7 am to tell me to get out of my room as soon as possible. He tried everything to get me to move back into the same draughty and cold room but eventually a hard won compromise was won. Also the electronic keys I was given for bedroom and bathrooms did not work very well. The first female member of staff kept telling me it was my fault and that I must have been doing it wrongly, evenwhen she would sometimes try it and it wouldn't work either. Overall the service in this hotel was very poor. However, I have to commend the cleaners who ensured that sheets, towels and bathrooms were spotless. And the location is excellent. Overall the exper

    The building and elevator are quite old, but in the room is very good. Clean bed, Big LCD tv, capsule coffee maker, microwave , refrigerator are included. The staffs are really friendly and helpful.

    Just has no free parking area.

    Location, near restaurants, stores, museums

    The building was badly maintained, plumbing dodgy, difficult entry to outside bathroom, hair dryer in room not usable. And, worst of all, the elevator, almost impossible to enter or exit, I am surprised any inspector passed it However, the staff were doing their best with what they had !

    Very friendly server! Large room. Generally clean.

    The bed is too small. Facilities are a little bit old. Wifi could not cover my room. Breakfast is very simple.

    I really liked all the hotel. First when we arrived I was little scared, because this hotel looks quite small from the outside, but from the inside it' s amazing. We really enjoyed stay there, just few bocks from the old city and all interesting places. Thank you!

    The location.

    It was the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed at. I thought there were bed bugs because when I woke up in the morning, I noticed black spots that looks bugs on the sheets. There was also a hair that was not mine. I complained to Booked.net. The person I spoke to promised to call me back, but did not. I wrote an email and did not like the response I got from Yolanda. However, Montse at Booked.net was very helpful. Supposedly the hotel had Orkin come and check for bed bugs. Perhaps there were no bed bugs but it was very dirty and the people working there were rude.

    Loved the price mostly, and the location was superb. Within walking distance to most things. Bathroom was well equipped. Courtesy coffee in rooms. Fridge and microwave. All in all, we were pleasantly surprised by the Rodeway Inn.

    The noise outside the windows. But that is not something that could be controlled by the hotel. Perhaps some sound/thermal shielding curtains?
