“Better than expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

I did not really know what to expect, judging by some other reviews.
In reality, I had no complaints whatsoever about this hotel.

My fourth floor room was spotlessly clean.
The room was located at the front, adjacent to Newmarket Road and traffic noise during a rush hour period was barely heard.
Only the odd noise of doors closing in the corridor was heard and this was not distracting.

My visit was a very short one and I had no time to try out the eating facilities offered.

Room Tip: Minimal traffic noise on the 4th floor.

Good value for money hotel; room, food, breakfast, bar.
Unfortunately the hotel underground car park is too small. There are insufficient parking spaces for the number of rooms. Arrive late on a busy day and you risk not being able to park. Cambridge suffers from a lack of places to park and the area around the hotel is no exception.
We arrived at 2100hrs on a Friday night and we were obliged to park in a disabled bay. The following night at the same time had to park on the roadside 10 minutes from the hotel. The hotel is not located in an upmarket area.
Unusually there is also a charge for the WiFi.

Stayed here for a weekend stop over meeting up with friends and for the price it ticked all the boxes, it's brand spanking new (although it doesn't look it from the outside in some places). The staff were friendly and helpful, providing me with a map to find my meeting place. Room was comfy enough and I didn't hear any traffic noise even though I was on the 1st floor at the front. You have to be careful when the curtains are open as it is easy to see in from the road, so may prefer a room on the 2nd or 3rd floors. Ok the fittings and furniture are on the budget side, but it is a budget hotel and to be honest I only needed somewhere to get my head down and have a shower and it provided that in a clean and comfortable enough environment

Room Tip: I would go for 3rd floor given the choice, giving more privacy

This hotel was initially okay when they built it, but is now falling to the usual poor standards.
Last night I stayed here with a colleague. We both had no hot water and asked them to fix it when we checked in. Nothing was done, and we had to have cold showers this morning. They seemed uninterested to refund or do anything about it. We weren't the only ones - lots of other people complaining about the same thing.

It's a place that's also subject to people coming back loudly from the pub at night and keeping you awake. Again, don't expect the staff to do anything about it.

My advice, is to pay a little extra and go somewhere that cares, and gives you shower gel in the room. Also, the breakfasts are awful. Avoid.

Have never stayed anywhere like this. Think twice if you are a woman alone or family. I had to move rooms in night as men and prostitutes were engaged in heated, abusive arguments in rooms and corridor nearby. Then when in new room, police were called to room opposite.... Barely slept. You dont realise until something like this happens how vulnerable you are in room with no phone to call reception- surely there are limits to 'no frills'.

Budget hotel which does what you need from a budget hotel.
It is a bit of a walk into town but I don't think there is anywhere in this price range any closer.
It is in a bit of an "up and coming" area, but it is brand new and there is other development going on around it.
Check in was fine, cleanliness was fine, no issues with noisy groups etc. Free parking under the hotel was a bonus.
Does what it says on the tin.

We travel to Cambridge on a regular basis to visit our son at university. The prices of the hotels over the last two years have increased greatly and we were relieved to find a new Travelodge had recently opened. I rang to request four rooms on a high floor overlooking the rear of the hotel which when we checked in they had accommodated us and with a friendly check in and free parking it was a good start.The hotel room was a reasonable size ,with a very comfortable bed,,tea and coffee making facilities and a basic shower room. The location is a 10 minute walk to the Grafton Shopping centre and further 10 minutes into the centre of Cambridge.There is a bar and restaurant ,we cant comment on the breakfast as we decided not to take that option..The lift area and staircases could have done with some cleaning but our room was spotless.I know this is a new hotel i just hope that Travelodge do there up most to maintain it as it was well worth the money

Room Tip: High floor at the rear of the hotel
