I have stayed in some real cheap hotels, where the rooms were reasonably kept, the staff were friendly and helpful. At the Rivington Lodge (EUROGARAGES) none of that applies, the cleaner doesn't come in your room until you have left, she doesn't change towels EVER or remove your rubbish. I was moved from room 17 to room 6 on the...

We stayed here for one night in room number 1. We got to the room no teaspoons for tea and coffee. We asked for some but staff never returned with any. Bathroom floor I don't think had seen a mop for a good few years. Sofa bed for the children had horrible dirty marks on, there was a broken light...

Just such a throw from the 60s the bin had an Morrison's bag in it when we took it out there was rubbish below. Toenail clippings under the bed. Not value for the money we paid. You had to go to the Spar shop to get your key, not ideal.

We complained and the staff couldn't care less so decided to...

We needed a cheap hotel near Wigan to spend the night before a sporting event the following morning. The Rivington Lodge came up on the search engine for £30 so we booked. It is very easy to find as it's just off the M61 so getting there wasn't a problem. Upon arrival we saw a sign instructing us to check...

Room very dirty no mattress or pillow protectors, the mattress was badly stained, so where the pillows. Bathroom filthy, first job was to but bleach and disinfectant and to clean the room. I travelled from John O Groats a 9 hour drive to visit my daughter in hospital, so no time for changing hotels. First room I was given was...

I had to bring in some spray air freshener from the car, but the smell of damp was so so strong in this awful ex-travelodge hotel for it to be effective. Very old and tired, but the damp is unacceptable even for one night. I find it offensive that the owners think it's acceptable to put humans in such conditions....

Beds were stained, no mattress protectors. No enough sheets or pillows, got told you had to report any problems within the first 30 minutes off arriving. Very...
