If you have business downtown and want to park and walk once you reach Phoenix, this is the best value you will find anywhere. This is my 6th time staying here, mostly as a woman alone (have also stayed with Hubby to see show at CoAmerica theatre 3 blocks away). I feel safe here. There's a mini-fridge and microwave so...

Friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable bed. Parking lot small kinda cramped. No coffee in room or available in office. Quiet room even next to Street. Will stay again but will bring my own coffee and brewer. Price was fair but a little overpriced based on what other motels offer included in price.

We stayed here for 2 nights in March. Our choice was determined by location as we wanted to be able to walk to Talkingstick Arena. We had originally planned to return to an adjacent hotel where we had stayed a couple of weeks earlier but didn't book early enough. Be warned these good value places get booked up quickly when...

We stayed here as a result of a flight being cancelled til the next day the rooms were clean and functional but the nicest part was the front desk guy who was probably the manager. He was very helpful and friendly. The area downtown where it is located is a bit sketchy

We stayed here for one night to attend a music gig at the nearby Talking Stick Arena. Other hotels we initially looked at were over twice the cost of the Rodeway and some even higher. Ok, the hotel doesn't look like much on first arrival, its more of a motel. It offers little if anything by way of amenities although... More

This is your typical run down roadside motel. It is close to the airport and very close to the city center, but the area does not look good or safe.
