Americas Best Value Inn Las Vegas
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
Well it was a slow start....ended up only as far as Vegas because the time was spent with repairs on the trailer. We made the executive decision to leave it behind and pack the car full. We just didn't want to take a chance on getting stranded too far for Mindi and Coley to rescue us LOL...we will do without some things....no biggie. Will get on …
Day Two Hundred and Eleven - Friday 5th April 2013
Paul had a quick run on a treadmill first thing in the morning to test out his new running shoes and then we set off to explore Las Vegas. Circus Circus is located towards the north end of the strip so we headed south, crossing Las Vegas Boulevard to visit two of the newer hotels, Encore …
Heute ließen wir es zunächst ruhig angehen.
Erstmal ausschlafen, Frühstücken gehen und dann zum Shopping ins Premium Outlet Center.
Am Ende wurden es nur zwei Einkaufsbeutel, aber irgendwie muss das Zeug ja auch noch nach D.
Nach der Mittagsruhe ging es dann den Strip entlang durch mehrere wunderschöne Hotels, u.a.
Der heutige Tag war Aktivitäten gewidmet, die speziell Thomas´ Geschmack trafen.
Nach knapp 100km Fahrt auf der Interstate 40 bogen wir bei Seligman auf die berühmte Route 66 ab, die quer durch die Staaten von Chicago nach Los Angeles führt.
Danach fühlte sich USA-Fan Thomas wie im Paradies:
In dem Städtchen Seligman ist alles auf den …
... stukje verder. Als we de parkeergarage uitlopen en naar het hotel gaan is het weer heet. Eenmaal binnen is het weer koud en wat kijken we onze ogen uit. We lopen langs het casino en wat staan daar veel tafels en slotmachines. Het is er druk en overal willen ze weten hoe lang we blijven. We volgen de bordjes naar check-in. Een tijdje later vinden we de balie en we checken in en bekijken onze kamer. Het ziet er goed uit en alles is ingericht in een soort Robin ...

I guess the term 'you get what you pay for' is a term I need to use here.
If you are looking for somewhere cheap than it is ok but I wouldn't stay here on my own.
As it was off the strip I would not recommend walking here at night as I did not feel all that safe.

Historical Traveler Reviews Americas Best Value Inn Las Vegas
Decent place, awesome price
I had expected a way below average hotel, but the Rodeway more than met my expectations. The room was kind of small, but it was pretty much clean and anyway, I didn't spend too much time in it! It's not too far of a walk from the MGM, so the monorail is close instead of taking cabs. Speaking of walks, it was pretty well-lit and I didn't feel afraid walking by myself. The restaurant was awesome--try the pot roast melt, trust me. I had to speak at length with the front desk people to store my luggage before check-in, shorten my stay because I had to come home early, and to receive and send faxes (it was FREE! Didn't happen like that at the Luxor...) and they were super nice about everything. The AC was cold, the shower was hot, and the hotel gave me an Orbitz rate plus 10%...the Rodeway wasn't the best hotel I've ever stayed in, but it's by FAR not the worst, especially since I got more than half off the price. I would definitely stay there again and save my money for the casinos.
Good location across from MGM Grand Parking garage, near airport. Rooms are very small and no frills. Hair dryer and iron available with deposit at front desk. If you are just going to sleep in your room is okay.
Close to the strip, basic, clean, park by your door
If you're looking for high style and pampering, look away from this motel. If you want a clean, inexpensive place to stay, 3 minute walk away from the Tropacana, MGM Grand, New York New York, Excaliber -- and many more store and casinos only a short distance away, -- without the hassle of a parking garage, you'll be fine here. BTW, the walk to the Bellagio to enjoy the fountain show is only about 10 minutes. One hint: MGM had the loosest slots.
A Carrows Restaurant at the entrance, and fine mini-mart next door.
Fresh bedding and towels every day, rooms clean... but it's a motel.
Expect a motel. Bed more confortable than it first appeared. Only real complaint was only one a rickety, uncomfortable chair -- and a table too short for the chair (or vice-versa) -- was the only furniture other than the bed (standard room), though I didn't spend much time in the room anyway. Bring a folding chair or two if you plan to sit in the room much.
In need of update
We live an hour from Vegas and go into town every Sunday for church. We decided to stay in Vegas on Sunday 2-15-04 because my wife had an early doctors appointment the next day. I got stuck with the Rodeway Inn from a Priceline.com bid. I have used Priceline for years and always was very pleased with the hotels used. This all changed with the Rodeway Inn. The rooms are difficult to find, lights above the vanity did not work and had to be replaced, the room smelled of disinfectant, there were not blankets on the bed and the room was cold. The carpet was stained and not well vacuumed. The bathtub was chipped. I now know when using Priceline to only bid on 2.5* or above.
Good place to stay
we stayed at the rodeway inn Feb 2004 and found it to be basic but very clean with bed sheets and towels cleaned EVERYDAY. The motel was in a very good location and the staff very helpful. We would recommend this motel.
Alright, not so bad
I stayed at the Rodeway for 4 nights, asked for two beds got one.
Location was great, only steps away from MGM, Tropicana, but it lacked pizzaz. But what do you expect for under $50 a night. This place is for people who just need the bare essentials, if you want to enjoy Vegas stay somewhere else. I suggest the Palace Station, that place was great for the price!
Good location-Sketchy characters
The location was good...very close to MGM...but for the price we paid (and it was off season), we likely could have stayed at a "real" Las Vegas hotel (e.g., MGM, Bally's etc.). We were also a little concerned when two police officers came into the so-called lobby (a guy behind a desk) looking for a convict! Needless to say, we wouldn't stay here again!
HORRIBLE DO NOT STAY HERE
I recently went on a trip this past August through Nevada and California. Out of all the accomadations I stayed at the Rodeway Inn and Suites was the most digusting experience I have ever had! First of all we could find our room because there are like 3 motels mixed together and it hard to figure out what room belongs to what motel.
When we finally found our room we changed right away because it was so freaking hot. Then I looked at my feet and they had turned pitch black from whatever the hell was on the carpet! I had to scrub my foot with a bar of soap for nearly 30 Min to get all of it off. The bathtub was also very dirty. To top it off when I pulled down the sheets and comforter they had stains on them! It was truly the most horrible experience I have ever had on vacation. I was only in Vegas for one night and thank god I did not have to stay there again!
Very basic lodging
I would say you get what you pay for with a room at this motel but nothing more. The rooms are spartan and really compact. The pool looks like it is about 3 feet deep and the size of a mid-size sedan. The landscaping is devoid of any aesthetic quality-it's just basically a rock covered surface with a hodge-podge of bushes surrounded by hot asphalt. Two good points about the motel are its proximal vicinity to the strip and its free coffee. For the traveler interested in location and little else, this may be a good deal, but if looking for frills or just a more hospitable lodging environment, I would look elsewhere.
Great place to stay
We stayed at the Rodeway Inn & Suites for our daughter's wedding in November 2001. Great place to stay. Just one block from the Strip, at the MGM/NY NY corner on East Tropicana. The "just off the strip" means real good prices for accommodation. Good diner just by lobby, and presentation of room key folder gets discount on meals - can't be bad. Friendly staff and lobby open 24/7. Good facilities, clean rooms and mini-mart shopping within complex. Laundry room, ice etc available. Easy access from airport, turn left at Paradise & Tropicana - on the left one block and a half down. Public transport runs right by - local bus service is regular and economical. I would recommend this location to anyone looking for Las Vegas without the major spend!!!
