We used to stay at the hotel when it was the Ramada. It was always a great location for visiting York as it's central and cheap..or so we thought. Tried to book for a friday and Saturday as we were in York for the weekend and were quoted £170 per night. Sorry but I'm never going to pay that for a Travelodge. I was perplexed to say the least at the price. We booked for Sun and Mon and this price plummeted to £40 per night. When we arrived, the foyer was full of stag and hen parties awaiting collection and it was clear this was the reason why Fri and Sat evenings are so expensive. The foyer looked dirty and smelt of people who had been partying for two days. It was a poor first impression of the hotel and quite off putting for my Gran. The room was as you expect from Travelodge. Cheap and cheerful.
The issues were the noise in the early hours from adjoining rooms, noisy children up at the crack of dawn with disinterested parents. For our party, away from our own children for a break, our planned lie-in didn't happen due to screaming kids from adjoining rooms. Maybe it might be worth considering putting families in one section of the hotel so guests can get a good rest. It's not rocket science just good management and planning.
Our mattress was also wet which required changing and the outside noise was noticeable on this visit.
In conclusion, you get what you pay for I suppose and this is a lesson for all people who consider staying here.
Reccomendation...do not pay £170 for a weekend evening stay as you will be devastated by the lack of quality. Sunday night's stay are a much cheaper price and York is still as beautiful on a sunday.
