I keep 8 snakes and three rodents in the same room; never had a problem. Only one is large enough to be considered harmful to human beings, and she's almost never shown any interest in the rodents or the cats who sleep on her cage. The one time I caught her eying the other members of the household, I had just brought a mouse into the house as a pet, and she was very interested in the cage for a while.
Snakes feeding live may be a little different, though - their cues for feeding behaviour are exactly what your rodents will be producing, while snakes that eat prekilled usually don't have the same experience.
