I just got back from staying at this hotel for 3 nights. My sister and I booked this Travelodge because of its REALLY CLOSE proximity to West Edmonton Mall (since our trip was mainly for shopping and entertainment!). Also, I had enough Travelodge Guest Rewards to get the rooms for free. If you are using Guest Rewards, the staff at the front desk were really knowledgeable with redeeming points and the Rewards program. So that was helpful...
Aside from the good location (the hotel is a 5 minute drive from West Edmonton Mall), the rest of the hotel is not that spectacular. Let me just say that it does the trick if you don't plan on living in luxury during your trip and just simply need a place to sleep. The room was quite small; however, the beds were really comfy and everything in our room was relatively clean (no bed bugs, etc.)! The window is a little bit drafty from the cold weather but that can be solved by cranking up the heat on the thermostat - your room will be quickly heated, no worries!
I felt safe for the entirety of my stay as well as all of the other times that I have stayed there (this was my third visit). I didn't notice any drunks or bums walking around outside, but keep in mind that the hotel is on the edge of the city and is in close proximity to Stony Plain Indian Reserve. So at times, you may see the odd shady person but just don't make eye contact and keep on your merry way... My sister and I are both in our early 20's and felt safe walking around the hotel. You'll be fine!
There ARE alot of other hotels in the area including a Comfort Inn, Hampton Inn & Suites, Holiday Inn, etc. If I did not get free rooms because of Guest Rewards, I would probably consider staying at one of those other hotels instead (basically, to get a better looking room).
Like I said, this hotel is a good place to stay in terms of location to restaurants, shopping, etc. and does the trick if you simply need a place to sleep!
