I stayed at the Travelodge Stratford for 3 nights during a recent conference and found it difficult to decide between ratings of average or very good.
I will firstly list the points which I thought were average:-
1) The rooms at the front of the hotel are noisy and the "double glazed windows" don't help - if there is a wind you can see the curtains move backwards and forwards.
2) A small room heater is attached to the wall for colder days but no air-con which could be a problem in summer.
3) The duvet cover and sheet were stained in places - not large but enough to be offputting.
4) The bathroom/shower room was let down by a mouldy shower curtain which smelt foisty - which was a shame because the rest of the bathroom was very clean.
5) There are no real alternatives close by for food and drink.
Points I think above average:-
6) Friendly staff at check in, breakfast room and bar - they work really hard to make your stay enjoyable.
7) For London the prices in the bar area were reasonable - just over £14 for a bottle of wine is not excessive compared to Central London prices.
8) Rooms were compact but furnishings were well thought out, small desk area with tea and coffee making facilities. My room had a comfortable king size bed and the room was well lit. The shower area was clean - but as the website states no shampoo/shower gel provided. I noticed that some of the towels provided looked very new and some slightly well used
9) It is only a short walk from Stratford High Street DLR station and although I did not walk to Westfield at Stratford it is less than 10 minutes away.
I would stay here again depending on where I had to be in London but during my visit I found the room costs high for a Travelodge - other dates could be quite different.
