“Found the rooms to be very clean and a good value”
Reviewed April 30, 2009

We used this hotel as a starting point and stayed there three different nights in three different rooms over a week. The rooms were all very clean and quiet and the staff friendly. Plenty of parking in front of the building and a secure back lot .Walk to the center of town might be about a little over ½ mile.

Stayed here for 1 night for 29Euro room only. Absolutely a great bargain. Room was basic but clean and the location was good...5-10 minute walk into the city centre. checkin and check-out were really efficient plus there was aple carparking space in secure area behind the hotel. It is a no frills stay but worth the small price you pay. Will definately be back if in that area again.

Dirty, expensive, bare bones room, high fees for everything (wifi, drinks, food). At about 80 euros a night for a single, this was the cheapest place I could find in Galway, yet it was the most expensive place on my trip and the worst! Picture a really sleazy, dirty, boxy motel, and you've got the idea. Avoid it like the plague.

I stayed at the travel lodge in galway with a friend as we were at a seminar at the university. Room very basic, booked twin but only double with pull out sofa. Didn't get any sleep because of drunks banging on the door and running shouting up and down the corridor. There was no information in the room on how to ring reception, tried 0 but no answer.
The following morning, complained, but all i was told was 'well no one complained during the night'.... how when there was no answer??? Would never stay there again, was not cheap, much better hotels in the area for same or even less money.

Hi there,

Thank you for talking the time to write your review about our hotel.

I do apologise for the disturbance within the hotel on th night you stayed with us.
I know there is nothing worse than not getting a good nights sleep.

I'm sorry our staff did not take action on your compaint . Our customer service is generally regarded as one of the hotels great strenghts, so your comment disappoints me greatly.

I have sent you comments to the general manager. He is checking all rooms to ensure the phone instructions are displayed.

Again please accept my apologies.

Kind Regards,
Lisa

Looking for a dog friendly budget hotel in Galway, Ireland - then look no further. I stayed here on potentially the noisiest night of the year - Halloween - but there was hardly any noise! Of course the travel lodge concept is basic but its good for the budget and you know exactly what you are getting... clean rooms, plenty of towels and hot water, TV, comfy bed and the rooms sleeps 4! All for around 60 euro a night...it costs 10 euro for a dog - the dog is not allowed in the small dining room - breakfast is basic and available at an additional charge - full Irish or continental depending on how hungry you are! Best of the hotel is only minutes by car from the city centre - a good 10 minute walk and is on a main roundabout if you are travellin in the west of ireland! PS avoid the rush hour if you ar in a car! And at weekends the car park can be tight.

  • Liked — budget and location - pet friendly
  • Disliked — basic though comfortable

Stayed here for around 90 EURO per night in September 2008, obtaining the best rate through lastminute.com.

In my experience, Travelodge can be a bit hit-or-miss, and this one was pretty good, but with some mainly minor problems. Room was large and clean and for me that is probably the main issue. The receptionist (manager?) is very friendly but the others are not overly enthusiastic. Location is 15minutes from the centre.

You also get a small portable TV to watch with a few channels, and internet is on a paid-for basis. No telephone facilities were available during my stay as they had "run out" of calling cards.

Soundproofing is poor, and so you will hear everyone coming back at night. Also, if like me you are facing the road, you will have the traffic to keep you company (there is a brief hiatus between 3am and 6am though). Breakfast is a basic affair, so don't expect much more than a cereal and some weak coffee.

Also, although the place is ostensibly non-smoking, clearly this is not strictly enforced as there was noticeable smell of smoke throughout the hotel. The net curtain on my room window had also been burnt by a few cigarettes in its time.
