While I wasn't expecting much at the Travelodge in Fife, after reading the reviews. But decided to give it a try anyways, as the price was right, and it was near where I wanted to be.
What a mistake that was. Upon driving into the hotel, there were unsavory charactors hanging around, but went ahead and checked in anyways, assuming the things would be OK on the 3rd floor. So off we headed to the room. Upon dragging our stuff up the stairs (no elevators), and entering the room... we nearly gagged. It smelled of smoke, and years of neglect.
The AC didn't help much. And if that wasn't bad enough, one bed was like a sponge and the other was like a rock. Oh joy. But the final blow was the bathroom, where we found public hair and other disgusting stuff. Given we both were feeling bad by that point, we decide to look around the area for a better hotel. Which we found.
So upon checking in at the Days Inn, we headed back to the Travelodge to retrieve our possessions and check out. At which point the night Manager refunded to refund us for the first night, saying once we checked in, she wasn't authorized to refund us that night. But she did refund us for the 2nd night.
In summery, I would recommend against staying at the Travelodge, as there are much better options in the area. GOOD LUCK!
