This place is in desperate need of refurbishment. The state of decoration is not good and the toilet bowl was loose. Although there is wifi there is no light near the desk. There was no plug in the washbasin and the only choice of drink in the room was black, regular coffee (no creamer or sweetener)

We decided to stay here because it was cheap and it allowed us to have pets. When we got here the carpet in the room was wet and smelled liked mold. The door latch didn't work and the only one of our door keys worked. To lock the door we had to use the chain and the door rattled all...

Over the years I've spent a total of maybe 2 months staying at this motel. For a long time it was a Best Western, but as an older motel it probably fell below their standards and got kicked out of their chain. Then it became an independent and offered good budget rates for years. When it joined the Rodeway Inn...

Wanted a pet friendly near I80 for a cross country rip. Checked in at night...looked a little seedy but ok. Inside the room had an odd smell, the bed sheets were wrinkled, the water tasted bad. Breakfast consisted of an egg biscuit, cereal, or white toast. No fruit, yogurt, etc. Don't do it!

I just don't like the way they do business at this place. Someone needs to bring these people down. I've been at wwwaayyy better Rodeway Inns. Then this one. Its worth about 35 bucks a night but they charge like 89. Got to say not worth it. Plus they're attitude. Don't go people keep driving or sleep in the car...

I want to go on record that a one star rating is about 11 higher than this place deserves... Yes, this place on a rating scale is a MINUS 11 and I'm being kind. I was returning to Denver from Toronto following the death of my brother. I needed a place to stay to break up a 20+ hour drive....

The room had a pungent smell of alcohol. Bedding was terrible; blanket had burn holes and other large holes in it. Sheets looked like they had been slept in already. Couldn't stay all night; just decide to keep on driving.
