My wife and I stayed for two nights this week with four other friends in a total of four rooms.
Apart from one friend we were able to book early and got very good rates. The hotel is just west of the river close to the middle of the three main bridges over the Ouse and a few minutes walk from the city centre. We were on the front of the hotel but very little road traffic overnight.
Suspect room had been recently refurbished; bathroom fine with large walk in shower. Good new double bed and good pillows but it seemed as if it had replaced two twin beds. Bedside tables were quite unreachable from the edges of the bed. Trailing cables on the floor with a pair of very high up bedside lamps which were not individually switched (despite their being a spare switch on the block of three). Only other light in room was a fluorescent over the hanging rack which substituted for the wardrobe. Minimal furniture as seems to be the norm in Travelodges these days. Didn't know it was formerly a Ramada place until I saw the Trip Advisor heading just now.
Only one of us had breakfast, £7.95 I think but a discount for pre-booking. Rest of the team used the Punchbowl Wetherspoons pub up the road at Micklegate itself and got the usual excellent value for money of a Spoons breakfast.
We were leaving York by train at the end of our third day and our major disappointment with the Travelodge was that they refused to keep our bags (only small rucksacks) for us during the day. I have left bags after checkout at many many Travelodges and have never been refused before, indeed never at any hotel. Receptionist told us there was a left luggage on platform one of the station - there isn't any more. Only such facility is an old container in the car park of one of the car rental firms which charges £5 a day per item even for said small rucksacks. We declined and carried our bags all day.
