This hotel is directly across the street from the Falls. This is an older property that has seen better days. Rodeway shares the check-in with it's highrise sister, Quality Inn, hotel next door.
The exterior looks like it needs paint, the concrete stairs to the exterior corridors are spauled with paint missing and rust, the pool in July is under repair, and the list goes on.
The room had a funky smell. The floor in the room squeaked and waffled. The exterior door unlocked and it took a shoulder to open as it drug across the carpet. It appeared that some renovation had been done in recent times as the tile in bathroom appeared newer.
On a redeeming note, the price was exceptional and the bed was comfortable. Although, noise of people wheeling their luggage over the poor concrete and rooms both below and adjacent could be heard.
The two hotels share a common restaurant and the food selection was better than most Choice Hotels in even the higher price ranges.
There is some close restaurants in walking distances.
Would I stay here again? Absolutely not!
Choice Hotels ought to update the exterior. This too is my first truly negative review of any of their hotels.

This hotel or motel is rated as a very good place. However when you look at the building it appears run down. There were windows that were cracked and taped up with duct tape. There are transient workers who actually live there for weeks at a time. The pool water was discusting and we observed baby diapers floating in it. There was a person in the parking lot spray painting a car. We had already booked a room and we walked back into the lobby and changed our booking to the Quality Inn hotel. Both places are serviced by the same lobby/front desk and are owned by the same people. The clerk at the desk said they get many complaints and they had no problem changing our booking. The Quality Inn was much nicer. It's hard to believe that the Choice Hotel brand would even allow such a property to be associated with them.

(We have 3 TripAdvisor accounts (me, wife, daughter) and have NEVER left a negative review till now)

Fabulous front phone/front desk staff. Happily checked in. $89/night is a spectacular deal (We have NEVER had a problem staying at a budget hotel). Super nice front desk staff indicated pool would be open on the 1st of June. So off to our room we went.

1. Nasty, overflowing garbage cans.
2. Pool, albeit is closed till the 1st of June, was....indescribable.
3. Creepy-as-they-get guys hanging out all over.
4. The room had clearly been used.
5. Visible (!!!!!!!!!) stains of the comforter.

I can write and write and write about this place. I am not going to waste your time. Go here, I don’t really care. We asked for our money back and left.

We stopped in Idaho Falls for one night. the location of the Roadway Inn is incredible, directly across from the falls. For our night we didn't stay in the main hotel but a annex next door. You can tell the hotel had been run down but they are in the process of remodeling. It was well lit and our room was clean and comfortable. The light fixture in our bathroom had the cover off and sitting on the back of the toilet, the shower head almost look like it was just put on and the teflon tape not cleaned up or the flang put back over the hole. I cant imagine a housekeeping supervisor doing a walk thru and not seeing these things. There breakfast had lots of options and was ok. All the staff we encountered were great. I would stay here again, but ask for a room in the main hotel with a view overlooking the falls. .

Room Tip: get a room in the main hotel overlooking the falls
