The Rodeway Branford is a budget hotel and as such, does not have the luxe mattresses, linens, etc. that you might find at a higher end hotel. Having said that, the accommodations are delightful, The room was exceptionally clean and the hotel owner and staff are wonderful.

We arrived in Branford with no reservation and stopped at the Rodeway. Stood in line behind two other couples/groups waiting to check in. When it came to our 'turn' the owner asked us to wait whilst he dealt with another couple to whom he given the wrong room and also a friend of his to whom he gave a special...

I apologize if your brief experience with us was less than satisfactory. As the owner and manager I can say we were extremely short staffed and busy that night and unfortunately I could not serve all my guests in the manner which I usually do. There was a rather large wedding party checking in that night as well as a...

Stayed here in early July, 2014 and was pleasantly surprised. My prior impressions of Rodeway Inns was that they were very budget and very basic, with the potential to be well below average but I can say that the room was very clean and well accommodated. The value and quality was excellent considering were were on the busiest interstate on...

We were extremely happy with our stay & would stay here again. Had everything we needed at a very reasonable price. No big frills like other big chain hotels that only leaves you with a big "BILL".. The rooms were extremely clean, quiet & well kept. The staff goes out of their way to help with anything they can. Very...

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel twice, now, while moving our student-daughter into and out of Yale in nearby New Haven. It's not as costly as the New Haven hotels and has all that we need. We stayed for 3 nights each time. Although I am used to more frills, I really like this place. With a...

Recently we moved from the area & now coming home for holidays means staying in a hotel. This was our 1st time here & it was clean comfortable & spacious.

We reserved this room through Expedia as non smoking. Apparently Expedia does not care, so the room they reserved for us was supposed to be smoking. Although we came late (after 10pm) the owner of the hotel, Mr Patel, who was attending the reception desk, gave us a room that would be more expensive, but he honored the price from...

We travel a lot and this is our first experience with bed bugs. The property itself is in dire need of updating. The current managers are nice, they work hard, they are trying to work with what they have but I am not sure they understand American standards and expectations. We thought Rodeway was a big enough name and would...

I am sorry that you had a less than satisfactory experience. After your review we spent over $10,000 to fumigate the hotel in order to be 100% sure that there were no issues with any pests. We passed every inspection and have ensured that the property has remained pest free. As the owner I take pride in running a superior...

Location was good but. Motel a bit outdated. The room was OK. Fridge was noisy so we ended up turning it off. Bathroom door would not close properly. Major complaint would be the continental breakfast. Coffee and some muffins. No effort made to provide a decent continental breakfast. Providing coffee with powdered mik is something I would get a car...
