Midweek one night stay for business. Clean and spacious rooms - in that spartan travelodge way. Nice and quiet - windows open, woken by birds tweeting in hedge just outside. But it was breakfast in a box and carvery pub across car park didn't open until 8.

We stayed here for one night to visit family. It was well located between Earley and reading town centre. When we booked in the carpark was full of white vans so we thought great, this place is going to be noisy and cheap and not maintained. We couldn't have been more wrong. Place has just been decorated and beds upgraded.... More

The team went 'beyond the call of duty' to help me. I am so grateful. They were wonderful to me. I had made a mistake about date on the website booking form. I had no right to a room as had mistakenly booked for night before. Despite this, the young man sorted out the spare room (the hotel was fully... More

My company booked this Travelodge for me as the hotel down the road hosting the course I was attending was fully booked. The last time I stayed in a Travelodge was many years ago and it was not brilliant. Travelodge Reading really made me feel welcome, provided a super clean, spacious room and excellent service and I would not hesitate... More

Ideally situated for visits to University to see our son. The guy on the Reception Desk was especially helpful. Room clean and well maintained. Parking was not a problem, but car park is shared with a pub, and did get busy when Reading FC were playing. Will stay again

Arrived at the hotel half 9 at night to be told the hotel was full even though I had a reservation. I didn't really get an explanation as to why nobody had rang me in advance to let me know, or much of an apology and spent an hour sat in Reception while the guy at the desk made some... More

This hotel looked like it had been recently refurbished so was nicely decorated, fresh and modern. Spotlessly clean room and bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful. Next door to a pub with a very varied menu with enough veggie choices for us. Very reasonable prices and did take away too. Would definitely return.

The hotel was alright for the price; the staff were friendly and the Pub at the front of the hotel offers excellent full English breakfast Buffet with takeaway option ( which i found to be really handy) if you enjoy staying in your hotel room for you meal. I recommend for any one who wants a good hotel at an... More

Need a room for the night near to family. Simple and comfortable with no frills. Needed a hair dryer and had to ask for one but it wasn't very powerful. Close to shops and food outlets to pick up takeway or right next to a Pub/restaurant.

Conveniently located for visiting Reading Uni - literally 5 mins drive. Large free car park. Comfortable family size room. Located next to perfect family friendly "cheap & cheerful" pub. Not the sort of place I'd recommend visiting for romantic dinner but family of 4 ate for less than £30 ! Only problem was pub advertised breakfast but wasn't open at... More
