Great stay. Hotel very clean, friendly staff. Parking is a bit of problem but the best place is the muli storey behind the Casino on North Street. It's locked up overnight so make sure you don't leave anything that you might need in the car. It's only a very short walk to the hotel from there and we would definately stay there again.

I actually live in Scarborough anyway, but booked a stay here for two reasons. Firstly, my children love staying in hotels and at £9 a night for a family room, plus £5.99 for a breakfast booked online with the children eating free, I was happy to pay just for a treat. Obviously this was booked during a promotion but having checked the website, the rates are very reasonable anyway, with £19 or £35 rooms available.
Secondly, I was curious to see how the old St Nicholas hotel had changed.

From a visitors point of view, the hotel location is excellent. Standing in a square just off the town centre, and overlooking the South Bay beach, it's handily located for the beach, shopping and restaurants. It's a do-able 10 minute walk from the train station too. Parking can be difficult, but there are a few options. I parked at the top of the square in front of the Palm Court Hotel, where it's free from 6pm to 9am then pay and display thereafter. The NCP multistorey is a 5 minute walk away and has special rates for Travelodge customers.

Check in was very smooth with a friendly receptionist who explained timings and offered extra bedding if we required it.
I was lucky in that I got a large family room (320) with a full sea view at the front of the hotel. It's the largest room I have seen in a Travelodge, and after a thorough inspection, was found to be very clean, with spotless bedding and towels, of which there were plenty.The bathroom was clean and well finished and had a decent shower over the bath.
The bed was comfortable with an illuminated headboard and reading lights that were a nice touch. The sofa bed for the children was firm and clean. Even when the fourth bed was pulled out there was plenty of room left to move about.
The room came with an LCD television on the wall with the standard channels, and the usual tea and coffee making facilities. The cafe bar menu showed a good range of meals can be ordered to eat in your room, and at reasonable prices.

For genuine visitors staying more than a night, then 7 hangers on the rack might be too few as this is the only place to store clothes.
The room was just right temperature-wise and we slept with the window slightly open even in October and it was fine.

The only thing stopping me giving this hotel a 5 rating was the breakfast. I shouldn't complain really as with the children eating free it worked out at £2 each. The cutlery and glasses weren't very clean and the staff seemed to struggle to keep everything available. There was a wait while milk, bacon, eggs, croissants, mushrooms and glasses were refilled. The cereal choice was good, but the cooked breakfast obviously uses cheap ingredients and the sausages especially were disgusting. The mushrooms were tinned and the conveyer belt toaster needs to slow down, or else you have to put the bread through at least twice!

Overall, this is an excellent budget hotel in a fabulous location. The service is friendly and rooms more than adequate. But perhaps give the breakfast a miss unless you just want cereal and toast.
Would definitely recommend to people for a stay in Scarborough.

A good basic hotel...we stayed in room 208, a side view, sea facing room which was spacious and clean with a large bathroom. Light and airy due to the large bow window, which rattled in the strong breeze and had to be packed with hotel menus.

The wall adjacent to the corridor, made only of plasterboard and very thin was just eighteen inches from the bed making for a lot of noise from extremely creaky floor boards and a small flight of steps outside our room which everyone seemed to thump along and hold conversations at the tops of their voices.

Our friends on this trip were in room 214 which was twice the size of room 208(which in itself was a good size) would easily accomodate four people in comfort.

We did not have breakfast at the hotel as, due to the 'jobsworth' parking attendant we had to leave our parking space, (which was akin to winning the lottery,) by 9.00am. The parking is £3.50 ?, for two hours and free between 6.00pm and 9.00am. You could park in the 'loading only' bay or double yellow lines outside the hotel, however 'jobsworth', who starts his round BEFORE 9.00am does feel your car bonnet to see if the engine is warm and you have just moved there or you have been parked there all night and he WILL give you a ticket.

Apparently there is a multi storey car park about a five minute walk away for which hotel guests get a preferential rate or an openair carpark at the top of the street outside The Palm Court hotel which is the same rate as the one outside Travelodge but less busy.

If parking not an issue for you I would say Travelodge offers a good basic hotel at a bargain rate.

Spent a weekend at the St Nicholas, mainly coz we got a good deal on the travlodge saver rates. Room was clean and spacious. No frills (maybe a set of drawers would have been handy for a longer stay). Location is great for the town centre. Parking can be a problem but if you know Scarborough (and dont mind a bit of a walk) you can dump the baggage in your room and then go and park your car all day for free just across the "valley".

We added breakfast to our stay and as we had kids they ate for free. The Saturday breakfast was VERY disappointing. Having to wait 20 minutes for bacon is a bit much. One of the young waiting-on staff did what they could be apparently they were expecting so many for breakfast. Sunday was MUCH MUCH better. Food was hot and plentiful. Eldest child will soon no longer be a "child" and so trips to this hotel may not be as cheap but for a central, clean and "you get what it says in the tin" hotel it will certainly be a place that me and missus will be visiting.

The hotel also benefitted from collect at the bar meals which for a hotel were very very reasonably priced. We would have eaten there except that we already had plans for the evening.

you get good value from travelodge but do the rooms have to be so dull. This one was painted in a kind of stone colour, looked like it had had a cement wash, and the curtains were exactly the same colour! it made it so dull, a pair of red curtains would have warmed the room at no extra cost and make it feel more comfy. there was nothing wrong with the hotel just the room decor, other lodges I have stayed at have used colour and it makes a big difference.

Arrived and booked in and went to a basic, adequate room. Although booked for 3 only enough bedding for 2 but extra bedding brought immediately though it meant a trip to reception, This would have been more inconvenient if we had not been on 1st floor. First night no probs but second night the fire alarm woke us at 5 in the morning. As a person with mobility problems this caused some stress before we could get out. It appears this must happen often because evacuation was well practised by the staff and we were escorted to the Grand hotel opposite who were not surprised by our arrival. Though our evacuation was short it was an inconvenience especially for older people and those with young children. We didn't get any apologies at all which I found strange. Would probably go again as it is well situated and reasonably priced( we paid £35 for the room though some had paid less with deals available) Scarborough is not an evening dining place everywhere seemed to close at 6 second day we ate at 4 to make it easier for us. Emmas coffee lounge on Huntriss Row just up the road do an excellnt breakfast for £4-50 so we went there instead of paying £7-50 at the travelodge

This travelodge appears to be an old hotel which the company has bought over and refurbished.

As such, the rooms are modern, spacious and the largest I have encountered at any travelodge. The rooms at the front of the hotel have magnificient views however my room at the back only had 2 small windows which looked out at a brick wall and the fire escape. As a result the room was very dark. When I checked ii I found 2 biscuits lying on the floor and graffiti on the wall, the bathroom floor was a bit dodgy as well.

There is only pay and display on street parking for a maximum of 4 hours (free from 6pm to 9am) and quite difficult to get a space. There is a small bar and a restaurant in this hotel, the bar prices were reasonable however due to lack of staff it was quite difficult to get served. I never used the restaurant although did hear one party making a complaint to the manager about it. There is internet access in the reception at £1 for 20 minutes and the staff were friendly. It is also a good location for the beach and the shops and situated directly across the road from the Grand Central Hotel.
