No Good!

Pros: Nothing
Cons: All of it
Location: OK
Very Poor Service! Had to check-in at Quality Inn next door to get the keys to the room at Rodeway Inn! Lobby at Rodeway Inn was always closed and had a sign on the door that referred to Quality Inn next door! Had to walk to Quality Inn, to get my morning coffee and that's all I got! Only the guests at Quality Inn had complimentary breakfast. Stay Away from this hotel!

Horrible

Pros: Absolutely nothing
Cons: The building and staff needs a severe overhaul.
I was switched rooms 3 different times, each room was still just as dirty and deplorable as the next. I informed hotel staff but was told nothing could be done until the morning. I had no other choice but to stay there. I went to the store and bought lysol wipes and spray. I had to wipe the dirt and grime off of all the surface areas. The toilet was falling off the wall and didn't look like it was cleaned in 2 weeks or more. The dresser drawers were loaded with dirt and grime, I couldn't use them. The worst part is I woke up to 3 roaches in my bed, 2 on the night stand, and 3 in the bathroom. I had ants all over the granola bars I just bought at the store. I informed the staff that morning and that I was going to another hotel and wanted a refund for the next 6 nights that I was not going to stay. I was convinced to stay and they would switch me rooms again but to the Quality Inn that was next door. So when I got back in the afternoon I was not given another room and was told I had to stay in the old room until the next day. I asked for a refund and I was denied. I would pay for the night I stayed, but the staff still said no and I had to pay for the whole 7 night stay. I should have listened to my gut instinct when I first arrived and not even check in. I am still fighting for a refund. I have called corporate Choice Hotel and have been put on perma hold several times. I have sent 3 emails but with no reply.
