You are not going to get the Hilton, unless you pay for the Hilton...We were looking for a cheap stopover point on a 16 day trip, this fit the bill. The staff were friendly, the rooms are dated for sure and the beds are not super comfortable. It worked for us, but I wouldn't recommend for a long term stay,...

Shoe requirement for breakfast? Doors that only work half the time with your door key? Nasty stains on the bed covers. Outdated decor. No conditioner. Tiny tubs/shower. Very uncomfortable beds/pillows.

I wanted a place to sleep and shower. I didn't want to spend much money since I wouldn't be there much. Rodeway Inn is functional and inexpensive. Good Location. The carpet edges against the walls were super dusty but the floor did look vacuumed. Don't expect the Hilton. Some of the comments on here were not realistic for what you...

We stopped in late and were a bit disappointed in how dirty the halls and carpet in our room were. Found a cockroach by the window in the morning (or we would have left), overall disappointed. Breakfast in morning was ok but typical.

Very comfortable and clean. Situated near to restaurants and the Museum of Clean, as well as the university. Its claim to be the friendliest hotel in Idaho made me wonder about customer service in Idaho.

For the price it was acceptable. The location was good and the staff friendly. Being pet-friendly you'd think they would vacuum the hallways more frequently, or maybe they just had a particularly hairy guest the night I stayed. The only weird thing: Our room seemed to be clean but it smelled like a mexican restaraunt in there! I swear, we...

Booked months ahead. Requested a first floor room, called 5 days ahead to confirm and was rudely told no to the 1st floor room for a person with serious oxygen issues. The stairway was filthy. The carpet in the room was badly stained. One of the worse Choice Hotels we ever stayed at.(we travel a lot.)

Stayed two nights at this motel across the street from Idaho State University and near the Clean Museum. Breakfast was above average for a budget motel. Asked the desk clerk for a recommendation for dinner and he suggested Elmer's next door which had good service and food at a budget price. Staff was friendly and everything worked well.

The folks at the front desk are very kind, nice, and helpful. That is where the good of this place ends. The room itself brings me back to when I lived in he ghettos of Seoul, South Korea. Staying at this hotel is what I imagine living in a garbage can to be like. It is old, run down, and...
