Very, very pleased with this Travelodge. We wasn't planning to stay as we are Wolves fans and all the coaches we're sold out so had no choice to stay. Considering I booked with a week to go before the match on a Tuesday night. I was amazed at how cheap it was. Me and my partner paid £16 each for a double room. Excellent location for the marina. You're about a mile away from the train station so be prepared for a walk. Also if you're going for the football the train station is right outside the football ground so you'll have a decent walk.
As for the hotel. VERY, VERY CLEAN! Spotless clean, not just the room but the whole hotel is spotless clean. Bed was very comfortable, we didn't want to move at all in the morning. The TV was a decent size but rubbish single and half of the freeview channels we're missing and not in order. Simple tea and coffee facilities, Warning. If you're staying for more than one night I recommend you bring your own tea, coffee, sugar and milk as you're only provided with 2-3 tea bags, 2-3 coffee packets and 5-6 sugars and hardly any milk, so that was the only downside. If you have a view on the front of the hotel on the top floor you'll have a marina view and it is a very nice view.
As for the location for the town centre, as we was only there for the football we didn't really bother with the town centre but we tried to find somewhere to eat late night time and it was a nightmare, we got lost and must have walked about 5 mile. You're far from the town centre also so it is hard to get to so plan your route out before you leave the hotel.
Receptionist wasn't English so we she couldn't understand a word of English. I know i'm from the Black Country but I'm not that bad, also when we we're leaving the different receptionists didn't seem to have a clue what was going on that we we're leaving.
Bathroom was spotless clean, the shower curtain tried to make love with me.
No shops near the hotel either, you have a over-priced bargain booze next door.
Very pleased with our stay, fantastic value for money, especially when you paid what I did.
Without a doubt it would be the place i'd stay again if I had to visit Ipswich again.
Never seen a hotel so clean in my life, probably because it was brand new but please don't be put off. Fantastic place to stay for a couple.
