“Superb hotel”
Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

What a great hotel. Stayed for one night following elbow gig. Three minutes walk to arena and cheap car park next door. Extremely clean, lovely room with very comfy bed, pleasant staff and nice breakfast. Couldn't fault the place. Probably the best travelodge I've stayed in.

The hotel was one of the best id stayed in for the cleanliness and appearance. The standard was high; could be a result of being new but I've stayed in some brand new hotels with bad appearance.
The staff on reception and bar were extremely friendly and very attentive.
THE LOCATION WAS SPOT ON!
If your visiting the arena and you want to avoid all that queuing to get out then this is the ideal place. From our seats in the arena to the hotel took 8minutes! Ideal! The city centre shops are about 5-10 minute walk, which again is fab.
Highly recommended!

I stayed here yesterday for a night to watch.a concert at the phones 4u arena. The travelodge is very clean, cosy and ideal for a stay over. Its about a 5-10 min walk from the arena but felt safe at night as others were also travelling from the arena. It is well worth the money for a budget hotel and would definately stay there again.

This hotel is ideal for the Manchester arena, I do not know of one nearer, (though P.I. comes close), my wife and have used it 5 times to bring her wheelchair bound mother to see dancing on ice, and we have also used it (without the MIL) for other events. It is almost 2 years since we last used it (no DOI last year), and the improvement this time is marked.The staff here have always been VERY good, - not the case in all Travelodges we have used. The new beds are great (a frequent complaint in the past), The big food improvement is the ability after the show to get a snack - we had a goodfellas pizza served quickly and prepared well at a reasonable price. A good selection of drinks (red wines in our case), at reasonable prices, not as cheap as the big W, but not the usual captive audience rip off either, no wonder the (large) bar/dining area was very busy well into the night - What's not to like?.
Parking - on the occasions we don't have the MIL, and so cannot use disabled parking, between the Travelodge and the arena is a vast rough ground, but fairly secure car park which used to be Boddingtons brewery. The charge for this is £3:50/day which in Manchester is a steal, get in early on event days, as they up the prices (£6:50) when event traffic starts to roll into the city, but if you have parked and bought your ticket at the normal price earlier, you are covered.

I booked here for a weekend stay in Manchester.
Firstly, the good things going for it, the location is good, you can walk to the city centre etc, the staff generally were polite. The food was average. The hotel is obviously very chain, but that's to be expected. Unfortunately, for us the downside was the noise. One night we were woken up at 2am but a drunk man shouting in the corridors. I know this isn't the hotels fault, but the individual so we thought that's fine as a one off. But the next night, AGAIN we were woken up by drunk women laughing and shouting in the corridors, again in the early hours. The place is full of drunks and noise and not somewhere you want to stay if you want a good nights sleep. It really let the hotel down. When you spend £60 a night, for this to happen every night of you stay, it's just not good enough.

Booked in Tuesday, stayed till Saturday. Had a lot going on this wk or id of booked straight out. Bedding well used minging and white linen - grey. Bed nackered and squeeked every time i moved in bed which kept waking me up. They failed to clean service the room for the whole of my stay. Friday night loads of drunken yobs stayed, hallway full of litter, macdonalds wrappers, and someone had vomitted on the control panel of the lift and it was not cleaned off properly, I pressed the button, realised what had gone on and it was too late. That was on the way to breakfast. Utter squalid conditions, if ur a hard worker looking for value for money, go somewhere else. I absolutely refuse to ever stay in a travel lodge ever again! The manager offered twenty pounds off my next stay, but i told him i wasnt looking for money, and that money off is no good because I woukd never stay at a travel lodge ever again!
