This is a typical Travelodge, you know what you are getting before you get there. This one had recently been refurbished and you could still smell the new paint!
Check in was fine, even though we arrived just before 10pm there was no problem getting in and the receptionist was very pleasant, as we had 2 young children who had been asleep in the car we were very pleased to find that all the beds in our family room had been made up ready for us; as it was a refurbished hotel the extra beds were proper beds, not the pull out sofas we had been used to previously and which we were expecting again.
Unfortunately the double bed was rather uncomfortable as it was a new mattress following the refurb it was too firm for our liking, we asked if this could be changed but unfortunately it couldn't, disappointing as we were there for 3 nights. According to reception the feedback they had had was that the old mattresses were too soft "so we can't win". The only other issue with the room was the television, a nice new tv but it didn't have Freeview. A small thing you might think, but when you have 2 children in a hotel room CBeebies and other channels can be a life-saver! We were told that this was because they needed some additional equipment following the refurb which was on order. The room was clean and towels were replaced when required.
Location wise the travelodge is good, just off the main road and next to a Little Chef and a petrol station, across the road are 2 pubs and a McDonalds so there were options for eating out close by if you wanted to, also plenty of car parking (albeit sometimes in the Little Chef if you were late back in the evening).
The only quibble I would have is that I think that Travelodge should provide each room with free Wi-Fi for say an hour per day, rather than charging for it, other similar establishments do this which is a nice touch.
Perfect for exploring Lincoln and we also visited Skegness for the day, if you want value for money and aren't worried about luxury or many facilities then this is a good place to stay.
