“A change of breakfasts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

It has been just 38 days since my last stay, and I was sorry to see that breakfasts have changed for the worse. The fare is now more typically continental. Hot food is represented by waffles and a slow cooker of oatmeal, plus the usual pastries, fruit, juices, and so forth. The cutlery and plate has been replaced by plastic and styrofoam, and the sausage and bacon are gone.

The hotel itself remains clean. I did notice that the sink in the bathroom could not be stoppered, which is inconvenient, and--bizarrely--there were shampoo and body lotion holders bolted to the wall next to the sink, which is more than an arm's reach from the shower.

Stayed June 2012, traveled solo

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

I booked a room at the Travelodge Whitby for the night of May 10, 2012 for use after attending a concert in Oshawa.

I have stayed at the property on several previous occasions and never had any issues, but I was a little disconcerted to have several issues mar my stay this time.

I arrived in late afternoon and looked forward to a relaxing soak in the bath tub after several hours on the road. The profusion of short, curly hairs decorating both the tub and the surrounding walls quickly caused to file that plan under the heading of "Not Happening".

I enjoyed my concert and got a decent nights sleep in the room afterwards.

Breakfast the next morning at 7:30 consisted of cold coffee, cold oatmeal, cold eggs, and cold, greasy sausages.........but the quantities available were large. Thankfully, there is a Tim Horton's just down the street.

Overall, the property served its basic purpose, but management needs to start paying attention to the smaller details.

I found my room to be good and clean and the bed comfortable. There was audible highway noise, so if that bothers you, I would bring earplugs. The free hot breakfast buffet was fine, and I collected several smiles from staff as I served myself. When I checked in, I was given the WiFi password without being asked, which doesn't always happen. Signal was good, although I had to log in each time I started up a device from sleep.

The hotel itself is older and there are inevitably a few places where that shows, but my room looked to have been refurbished within the past 1-5 years. I would stay again, especially at the bargain rate I obtained.

The Holiday Inn was booked and I had to find a place to stay. I ended up at the Travelodge in Whitby. I was pleasantly surprised the lobby area was nice and the staff was very friendly. The room was cleaned and furniture was up to date. A DVD players was in the room allowing to either rent a movie downstairs for just a few bucks or bring a movie from home. (Instead of paying $15 dollars for on demand movies at other places). Good place at a reasonable rate.

This hotel is great value for the price. It's clean, close to restaurants, shopping and Hwy 401. The staff are very courteous and helpful and the included breakfast offers a good variety of food and beverages. Definitely worth checking out if you're in town on business.

This is a decent place to stay at on a business trip. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast selection was quite good for this kind of business hotel. The service was friendly and efficient.
