Surprising quality for a Rodeway Inn
Posted Jun 18, 2013
I waited too long to reserve a room at a Spirit Lake, Iowa resort where the rest of the wedding guests were staying, so I used Expedia to shop for other hotels or resorts in the area, as I was unfamiliar with the area. I'm not sure why I clicked on Rodeway Inn - they don't have the best reputation - but I clicked on this Rodeway Inn. I learned this was a new build hotel - the previous one had suffered a fire. As the rate was attractive, I went ahead and made the reservation, still thinking that I hoped the newness would outscore the Rodeway reputation. I was amazed to find a wonderfully appointed King room, very modern décor, and very clean. It was a small room - but had everything I needed to get some work done during down time on the weekend - and the bed slept very well. Kudos to the owners - a surprisingly pleasant Rodeway Inn!
