Dishonest owner/st. Keep away from this Fort Wayne, IN location at 2920 Goshen Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46808.
They'll show you a smelly dirty room, and ask you if you like it. When you ask for a different room, they'll be happy to bring you to another one, and charge you much more without telling you in advance. It deserves negative stars if there is one.

Photos don’t reflect the horrible conditions of the rooms. Asked for a non-smoking room and it reaked of smoke. Checked another room. Bed covers had cigarette burns in them and when I pulled back the covers there were bugs! Located next to male strip club! We left!

It is a shame that this hotel can't be rated lower than terrible. They don' t clean the rooms, they leave a couple of sheets of toilet paper on the roll so they can steal every penny of a night's stay. When checking in, an elderly lady came in and asked for toilet paper,,,a pattern. Garbage laying around, old wash cloths still on hanger from previous guest. Beds were not made for what you would expect for $62 night. At least room 117 was beat up. Stood here previously when was Redroof, but I had to go home and shower up after staying there. I would not even consider this a dog kennel. What a disaster. When checking out, asked the franchise owner to call and discuss, they did not, I guess customer satisfaction not high on their agenda. They are focused on stealing money and not letting poor service bother them. Stay away!

This place is awesome! The rooms are emaculate and staff is amazing and don't put up with the b.s. No sign of bugs anywhere. Very family friendly and peaceful despite the busy location. My son loves the free cold breakfast they offer every morning! My family definitely recommends and most definitely will visit again!

I checked in late at night I didn't want to spend a lot of money for a few hours. The person who checked me in was very accommodating. But the hotel is next to a strip club. When I was walking to my room I was approached by a few guys from next door. I rush in and locked my door. They came and knocked on my door as they said "they wanted to party". I shouted through my door.....they got the point. The hotel phone didn't work so I couldn't call the front desk. I put a chair against the door for added protection. So I guess the saying is true you get what you pay for.

It was one of the cheaper places we could find that wasn't too far from the hospital - we ended up being in Fort Wayne unexpectedly due to a family member being in the hospital. The rooms were dirty - floors were dirty, rooms smelled musty, sheets had stains, etc. There is an adult entertainment establishment across the parking lot, people were out drinking and yelling late into the night. Truly not worth the price cut, had we known more about the area or the hotel we would have paid $10-15 more a night to stay somewhere cleaner/safer.

Room was recently remodeled, clean and well appointed. Fantastic value. Front desk PM & AM were friendly and efficient. We left a request for a wake up call and actually received the call from a live person (not an automated dialer), True, it does share a parking lot with a strip club but, hey, if you leave the hotel at night you won't have trouble finding it again :)

We found this motel on-line and read reviews and decided to take a chance. The rate was cheap enough and we were just looking for a decent place to sleep. When we arrived the staff was extremely nice and helpful, even offering to let us look at the room first. No real need I felt comfortable with their attitude and the cleanliness of the office. We were able to park right in front of the room so unpacking and packing the next morning was easy.

Although, maybe not the newest or fanciest motel we stayed in, the staff made up for some of the difference.

This motel has recently changed from a Red Roof Inn to Rodeway Inn. The carpets appear to have been replaced and the room was clean and without bad smells. One of the beds felt like its foundation was broken, but the other was fine. The bathroom floor looked new, but the walls and the tub/shower needed repairs and updating. The "breakfast" was only cold cereal and coffee. Fortunately there is a McDonald's less than a block away. Overall we had a nice stay. We were slightly concerned with the location. There is a "Gentlemen's Club" next door and another one in the next block. However, the lady at the desk assured us that they have no issues caused by the club or its patrons. I was glad, however, that our room was on the other side of the motel.

Stayed here because it was lowest cost property in Choice point scheme. VERY unsavory atmosphere. Men walking around in lot and on balcony. One guest came to desk as I was checking in saying afraid to go to room.
Parking lot adjacent to huge strip club and another strip club xc the street. Once in room ok. I would NOT stay here again
