We booked this though Hotwire and sometimes that can be like Russian Roulette. The surrounding area was dirty, full of shady looking folks. It felt like the kind of place that your car could get broken into, and luckily ours didn't. The room was old and needed a remodel. When we came in, the bathroom window had been left open.... More

Manager explained there was no coffee maker in my room and was unwilling to replace it during my stay. The floor of my room slated steeply towards the front door of the room. Housekeeping failed to restock the bathroom towels. Save yourself - stay anywhere else.

staff was very friendly and helpful. Would have liked more coffee and cups in the room but when I asked they were very happy to accommodate. Super comfortable bed, quiet room.

Hotel is nice. Management is not friendly to customers. Some rooms have hot plate stoves to warm snacks. Would like to have microwave to warm-up snacks rather than hot plate stoves. There is no pots/pans to use on hot plate stoves. Called and asked management for pots/pans to warm snacks. Management responded by saying "You need to bring own pots/pans."

There was a hooker working out of room 109 and people doing drug deals out of a room at the end of the parking lot. Some idiots were yelling that they couldn't get the room door unlocked at 4am. Never again!

I can handle small, outdated rooms but I like them clean. The bedding had spots, a chair was extremely dirty and the walls and ceilings had marks all over them. The bathtub drain got stuck and there were loose floor tiles. The staff was just ok. No effort at all to show they valued us as a guest. The parking... More

I don't know who is to blame; Travelodge or Expedia; but I booked a room through Expedia for this Travelodge. Upon arrival (late at night with a family of 5 during 4th of July weekend), I was told by the Travelodge front desk that they had no vacancies. I showed the front desk my confirmation from Expedia, and the front... More

We checked in about 9:45pm and there is nobody in the office to check in.. There is also a no vacancy sign.. I got scared because I haven't confirmed my stay thru phone call. So I called their phone number and a very nice lady answered right away and told us that somebody will be there at the office for... More
