“Needs a facelift”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2011

Check in was easy and friendly. The rooms were clean and yet, not. They smelled like bleach and the bathrooms were clean but the mattresses were a hundred years old with stains. We had 2 queen beds, and one had a HUGE dip in the center -- not good if you actually want to sleep in it. It needs a serious facelift. The door jams looked a little questionable; typical beachy, musty smell; overall not visually appealing. The free breakfast was cereal and a few muffins. A lot of workers who were staying at the hotel mulled about the place, which was a little intimidating. If the price had been half of what we paid, you could chalk it up to "you get what you pay for" but for $92 a night, you would expect a decent bed. There are better places for the price.

Had the recent unfortunate experience of staying in this hotel with my family. Horrible!! The grounds are filthy, the building is in terrible condition, and the rooms are not cleaned properly and smell. Stayed here 3 years ago and it is worse now. Absolutely overpriced for a chain hotel. My family and I will never stay in another Travelodge again - even if it's brand new. Obviously, the corporate management are more concerned with the bottom line, than with customer satisfaction. This facility should be torn down. :(

The door was almost off of it's hinges. We propped our cooler against the door and my husband slept with his pocketknife. It was so dirty, I feared bed bugs and lice the whole time I was not sleeping(which I didn't as the beds were as hard as a rock). I have never stayed anywhere like this. I felt unsafe the entire night.

The rooms were overpriced and not clean. We stayed in a room with a kitchenette and the floor was filthy. I had to ask the maid to clean the counters while we were out because of coffee stain and spills. The carpet was filthy in both rooms. We never took off our shoes. We switched room to a smaller room and the second room was worse. The shower from the upstairs room leaked into our bathroom. I could not get home fast enough to shower. I never felt clean staying in the motel. I would never recommend especially to those with a family.

Our room was just not clean. The bedding did not look clean, either, and the blanket was terribly scratchy. We rented a kitchenette, but it did not have a microwave. The window unit cycled on and off all night. Because of car trouble, we were stranded at Woody's Garage, which is next door to Travelodge. We made our hotel decision in a hurry and regretted the decision!
