Paid £30 for a one night stay. Staff a front desk were friendly and efficient. Gave the bar / restaurant a miss because it was it was packed with what looked like a Christmas party and i just wanted a quiet drink.
The room (339) was pretty dated but for £30 it seemed ok and had a kettle, towels, tv, double bed and pull out bed. All i wanted to do was sit in bed with a coffee, watch a bit of tv and get a good nights sleep.
Basic quality standards which can even be obtained in a dated building should be reasonably easy to obtain for any company in the hotel business, but clearly not Travelodge.
Bathroom sink was partially blocked causing it to overflow if the tap was left running for more than 30 seconds. The hot tap wouldn't fully shut off and could be heard running all night. 2 towels in the bathroom. One was damp when i got there and the other was stained. Luckily 2 clean ones found in the room. Light fitting cover was lying in the shelf unit. TV remote didn't work and if you turned the tv on from the set, the signal was so poor, the interference made it unwatchable. Got into bed and found the corner of the duvet wet.
Sheets had creases in them so i can at least assume these were fresh.
It was 10pm, i had just flown in and i would be leaving at 8am. I just wanted a few hours rest and was way too tired to go down and ask for a room change. I put up with it and slept on the other side from the wet patch, but i certainly won't be using this hotel chain again no matter how low the price is.
I would have complained when checking out, but the staff didn't ask so i didn't say.
