Stayed here out of necessity due to flight restrictions. Without repeating comments of other guests i can only confirm that every one is telling the truth. Out of all the opinions how many people have complained to travelodge I HAVE!

Stayed here for 2 nights due to volcanic ash closing airports. This hotel smells and is grubby. Luckily we arrived before the stampede of other stranded guests and did have clean sheets. We had a decent sized room for 3, one on a sofa bed and another had a broken bed. The room was dated and not too clean, with wallpaper around the window stuck down with tape. The bathroom needed a good scrub with bleach and the towels were laundered but stained. There are shops and restaurants across the road but as the road is a (one way) highway there are no crossing places. We had to get a shuttle bus that took us about 5 miles up the road before returning to the other side of the one way system, about 50 yards from the hotel! We were able to get to a supermarket, but the shops and restaurants are in the middle of the two roads and unaccessable on foot. The shuttle then goes about 5 miles in the other direction before finally dropping you at the hotel. The staff could not cope with the numer of guests and ran out of plates,cutlery and some food at breakfast. We put up with the place for 2 nights then moved to a much better hotel nearer to the airport. Travelodge should not allow this place to use their name, it's not a patch on the British version and could do with being knocked down. To make things worse, and I am not saying it happened at this hotel, my credit card was cloned and used at a service station further down the highway.

We were stranded at Newark airport late on the 14 April. For the first night we got an excellent hotel and then decided because it may be a while before we could escape we had better find somewhere cheaper. In England "Travelodge" means a no frills, clean but perfectly acceptable room, so we thought that we would go there. Oh dear!, it took ages for the shuttle bus to come (battered and shabby). When we booked in to the reception it was pretty squalid. The room was poor and dirty with an enormous bath and the sliding shower screen was filthy. At least the sheets were clean - guests checking in later said that the sheets had not been changed from the previous occupants. The fridge was dirty and so was the microwave. We sat in the reception listening to the woman (owner?) taking calls. Each time somebody called she put the price up 10 dollars. The hotel is next to a motorway, so busy that there is a local free shuttle bus comes round to take you across to the shops on the other side. Outside the Travelodge is parked an ancient Rolls Royce (complete with flat tyre). Do they think that adds a touch of class - I don't think so. There was a notice in reception to say that the place was licensed to Travelodge (is it a franchise?). The organisation "Travelodge" needs to inspect the place. It is nothing like the website.
The place advertised deluxe continental breakfast. There was a flask of coffee for all to share, a box of pastries, toast (if you made it yourself with the dodgy toaster) and some juice. There was hardly any seating. The only good thing about this place was that there was free internet, even if it was an ancient, filthy computer with no printer.

When my trip overseas got canceled i had to go back to this hotel, the last time i was there over a year ago i was not happy ... however i'm surprised to see the owners making a great effort to clean the place up ... my room not fantastic was worth every penny ... it provided the basics for a fair safe price ... would i go back .... yes ... would i recommend it yes ... .... that's a change from a year ago ...

Dirty, Stinky, dusty grimy curly hairs in the bath dirty, dirty, dirty!!! Sheets were actually clean but blankets stunk of B.O. and loads more to mention! A really strange place where you really are glad to leave. DON'T GO - really, save your money and stop at the airport - least its clean there and you can get good refreshments.
