The pictures don't show how badly deteriorated and run down this place is. I wouldn't pay $30 a night to stay there. The room I got was about as run down as could be. Most the tiles in the bathroom were broken, the sink was cracked, the toilet lose, the toilet paper holder broken off the wall, carpet was ripped up by the door, a power strip over loaded with a TV, fridge, microwave and a light, partially hanging from the outlet and that is just what I saw in the first 5 minutes. Their were drunks sitting on chairs outside the rooms harassing people, people just loitering in the parking lot, and management didn't really seem to care.

Old cheap motel that need much more renovation.

Pros: The desk clerk, a young man was very helpful and was the only part of the hotel that was pleasant.
Cons: I know that a portion of the population needs cheap, affordable housing, hotels. This is that place. The parking lot is too small. Got stuck 10 min.
Location: Near Northern Arizona University.
Picked this hotel trying to cut costs. The 3+ stars made me feel that it would be OK. First, I had trouble enterring the motel driveway just due to its location on a busy intersection. Pulled into an adjacent building parking lot and saw the exterior of the hotel on the non street side. I was shocked. It looked like a slum building. Missing boarded windows, debris and obvious structural discrepancies obvious to any passer- by. I got to the desk and the pleasant clerk was very helpful. Got my pickup truck parked with offered assistance from the clerk to park my small trailer in parking spot. Checked the room and was shocked. Fresh pain, and renovation but the room was unfinished. A GFCI outlet in the bathroom area was uncovered, exposing the terminals. The toilet was running constantly. I had to reach into the tank and re-attach the flap valve. There was a new shower tile installation and a nice shower head, but the bathroom door was filthy. I was tired from a 12 hour drive so the bed and relaxation was my only requirement. The TV had 4 or 5 permanent wide and thin vertical lines in the video. A quarter size blue blob in the screen center was permanent. The microwave oven had a burn through the door windor. The most disgusting item was a stain, brown and nasty on a pillowcase. Ite room smelled like sweat in some places, pillows head board. No alarm clock, no phone, and the security dead bolt would not engage the door frame. Stains on the carpet were also unhealthy looking.

Sleep and Leave Worthy

Pros: Close restaurants
The Rodeway Inn was a great place to stay for an evening of sleep. We arrived extremely late in the evening (11:45pm) and received a handicap-accessible room which provided a nice, large shower facility. The bed was comfortable and the room was adequately clean for a one-night hotel stay.

needs work

Stayed one night. Heat stopped sometime during the night. (It was 28 outside) Bathroom needs all new grout and a good cleaning. Bolt lock did not work. Big cracks in the walls, old paint and the room smelled really musty. I did not bother with the breakfast because I was concerned with cleanliness.

Truely the Bates Motel! Needs to close!

This place is a dump to the point that we stayed in our room for 15 minutes and could not stomach it. The ceiling was caving in by the bed from water damage also in the bathroom. The bed sheets still had hair as I pulled back the sheets. The tub is an older chipped porcelain tub that you could scratch yourself getting in and out. The back of the room has an old window that has an airconditioner sitting in it. whick you can see outside which means they can see in. the carpet is badly stained I never took my shoes off. The comforter was actually with holes with the filling coming out. The outside is weedy and badly maintained which was my first clue but I was optimistic. I heard inside myself you get what you paid for but this is substandard for health reasons. I took photos to show I was not making this up. I talked to the front desk and told the gentleman I was not happy and brought him to the room. He said thats how the rooms are so there was nothing he do about it. I prepaid and was not offered a refund. I will contact Rodeway Inn and see if they will send in inspector to the property. If the follow through I will not contact the local Health deparment.

Basic with no frills

Older property with newer decorations. Microwave and refrigerator were nice. Basic continental breakfast. Heater worked well with ceiling fan. Had A/C, but too cold to use it. Pretty quiet with minimum of traffic/train noise. Close to NAU, restaurants, freeways, gas stations, shops, National Parks, etc. Staff was not overly welcoming, but great deal for the price.

Family of 5 always hard to find hotels with enough beds. This hotel had 3 queen size beds in one room. Just what we need!
