Stayed 2 nights. You know what your getting with a Travelodge. In this case pretty much even less.
The hotel is an extremely worn jaded and faded establishment. EVERYTHING is dated. The whole building needs a referb throughout. Coupled with the fact that there didn't seem to be any/enough staff even working there. The ones that did seemed just as miserable as their working environment.
Only paid £19 a night. So you cant really moan. Beds were OK. TV had about 6 channels. Odd tiles in the bathroom. Filthy marks on the doors, some damaged. Odd tiles replaced in the shower/bath area. Taps wouldn't work properly/turn off. Had to leave the cold tap on for 2 days as it wouldn't turn off!! Reported it, staff came to look. Did nothing! Shower water temp was way too hot. Rooms were warm enough. Had to ask for extra towels as they only put the one small one in the room. Stayed in a room which was on the rear. I think that was better than staying in one on the main road side.
Funny smells along the corridors. Bar area small but OK. Didnt bother with any food/beverages.
On the whole a miserable and bleak hotel. Only stayed there as it was cheap. Handy for the town centre, wont need to return thankfully!
Travelodges have usually a good standard. I think they are ok. HOWEVER this one has to be the WORST Ive ever stayed in.
Do yourselves a favour, choose the Walsall Premier instead!
