“Extemely Disappointed”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The first night there was no hot water till I notified the Office twice, and then only luke warm. The room heater would run on hot for about 20 minutes, then start blowing cold. We were cold all the time we were there. And this just before and after my wifes Surgery at UW Medical Center. The second morning, when she had to shower before surgery, the water was ice cold.

Not the first stay, but the Travelodge is on a downward spiral. First the good: excellent location near the University and University shopping village. Wonderful reception staff, knowledgeable, accommodating and cordial. New flat screen TV. Now the not-so-good: 1) cleanliness -- not appealing to find a previous guest's toenail clippings on the floor; less appealing to find them on successive days. Do they own/use a vacuum cleaner? 2) sheets and towels are threadbare; would rather have new sheets than a new TV. 3) parking is a problem in this area. The motel's lot is small and inadequate, and the spaces themselves so skinny as to pose a challenge getting the door of your car open enough to get out. 4) the breakfast is very modest, the breakfast room too small. Each day the floor was sticky from dried juice; do they own/use a mop? Overall we would return, but book early during football season if there is a home game!

Actually I'm not that disappointed by this hotel. Let's say that your money is well invested according to the level of the hotel. I suffer the noisy behavior of the other customer (3am). The pressure of water in the shower is erratic. The furniture is old fashioned. And there is a bad smelling launderette in the corridor. The breakfast room is clean but not comfortable. Could be better because the neighborhood is pleasant. The university village is a nice place where you can go shopping and have dinner and a good Starbucks pick.
