If all you want is a comfy bed and hot shower near 85, this hotel will serve. If you expect a few amenities, go somewhere else. The hotel is old and dingy so it's hard to tell if it's clean. There were no extra towels or washcloths, no lotion, only one packet of coffee (regular,which I used the first day)... More

Older motel, kept well. Only problem - when I checked in I inquired as to availability of internet because I needed it that night. I was assured internet was available. After i got to my room and unpacked I couldn't get the wifi to connect. I called the front desk and they said they would reboot the system and that... More

We knew that "Game Day" weekend anywhere near Auburn, AL would make it challenging to find lodging. We knew that Travelodge would not be a 5-star property. What we did not expect was a tub that did not drain. A non-slip tub mat that has not been moved/cleaned under in months and pillows that weren't pillows! The pillows were decorative... More

Confirmation of travel confirmation was obtained on 8/23/2014. However, my card was still charged on 10/6/2014 for that cancelled stay. Upon calling the hotel, we have gotten unhelpful staff members telling us it was not cancelled even though i have an email confirmation with a cancellation number included.

We stay here when we come for an Auburn football game. The bathroom has been upgraded, however, the carpet needs to be replaced and there is a musty smell in the room. The beds were very good for sleeping. Other members of our group also indicated that their rooms need to be upgraded. The staff was very friendly and the... More

Traveling for a quick trip to New Orleans, chose Opelika as a layover stop before completing journey the next day, needed a break for a 9 hour trip, we are older now and tough to take that drive! The hotel night attendant was sweet and helpful, good at multi tasking. At night the parking lot and coming into the property... More
