Booked at short notice for a convenient overnight stay close to work, the Travelodge was fairly mediocre to say the least. Not the easiest to get to from North or West off the A13 at 5pm, with queues approaching all routes and a convoluted negotiation of roundabouts to be undertake; however the car park had several overnight spaces available. (It would have been more inviting if the car-park was free for registered guests)
The room was standard layout, but it was at the end of three or four extended corridors on the first floor with a good deal of fire doors to encounter on route. Disappointingly, the Wi-Fi in the room was only available at another additional cost (only free in reception and bar/café area downstairs), so not immediately useful for the business traveller. With no shampoo in the bathroom and one small sliver of white soap that was reminiscent of the type available from those British Rail overnight sleeper trains from the seventies, the sundries were extremely sparse indeed. The view of the East India docks municipal buildings was not particularly enthralling and the drone and rumble of the traffic on the A13 was not welcome either.
The café offered a fair selection of standard fare, but the breakfast was a free for all with seemingly hundreds of Eastern Block (Russian/Ukrainian?) guests devouring the bacon, jumping the queues and making packups for their lunch later, it was the final straw….never again.
