        The Hotel is in need of repair/updating. The decor was not very attractive inside or out. The elevator did not work the entire week I stayed there. There is no way to control the air conditioning in each individual room. That cause a problem with some guests being cold while others were hot.

      • Single
        6.2

        The hotel is well located. The complimentary breakfast is adequate. Most of the attendants were nice.

        The lift was broken and there was no facilities to carry the luggage. The shower was not working well; the water was not enough.

      • Older travelers
        5.4

        The elevators was broken so we had to walk up and down 5 flights of very narrow stairs, the breakfast was stale and meager and the keys frequently did not work and had to be re keyed. It was not a good experience ... the hot water never got really hot.

      • Older travelers
        4.2

        Good location

        broken elavator, broken shower stall, no thermostat, old bread at breakfast, less than great computer access

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        I like the spacious room

        The lift should be put in place in the earnest

        good location, pretty good price, septa two blocks away

        elevator broken, no in-room control of air conditioning except to open the windows

      • Couple
        8.2

        The general cleanliness of the room, and the central location.

        Some of the communal areas should have been cleaned more thoroughly.

        7.0

        The staff was very hospitable. They made my stay as homie as possible. They catered to each gues not the hotel just as a whole.

        The hotel room electricity went out and that was an inconvenience but the staff made sure that the situation was resolved.

      • Single
        7.0

        The location that is very close to Phili downtown

        The breakfast menu and room

      • Older travelers
        5.0

        Rodeway Inn is located in a great area - close to restaurants and shopping. We parked our car in the parking garage across the street and walked all week.

        The air conditioner broke and it was very hot. The unit is only controlled in the office. The staff person did bring us a fan when we called to complain.

      • Single
        10.0

        The staff was unbelievably friendly and helpful - I was allowed to check in an hour before the actual check-in time. Although the room was somewhat small, it was adequate for the price. The location was great, and I would definitely stay there again.

        The room was a bit small, and the elevator also seemed a little bit too small. However, these definitely were not enough to deter me from staying there again.

      • Couple
        8.8

        Convenient location of the hotel and excellent quality of the room.

      • Single
        7.4

        Good bed, good TV and calm enviromment. The location is excellent! Very close to City Hall,

        The wifi wasn´t working properly (they said it was going to be changed). I had a private bathroom, but it wasn´t inside the room.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        The location was convenient to shopping, touring and great restaurants.

        The floors are un-even.

      • Single
        3.8

        The place was shabby and run-down. The elevator was an old freight elevator that was downright frightening. The lobby was tiny and so was the room. A lot of the features were old and needed serious updating.The most upsetting thing was that the price quoted as the total by Booked.net was not ther price paid for the room. The man at the desk said that that number did not include taxes. I showed him the print-out from Booked.net and he insisted that that quote did not include taxes. Therefore, what I ended up paying was quite a bit more. For a hotel as shabby as this, it should have been a lot more inexpensive. I was disappointed with the room and with Booked.net and would not be using either ever again. If you are looking for an up-scale room, do not use this hotel, If you are looking for an inexpensive room, I would not recommend this room, either.
