“Cheap & cheerful”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We looked at previous reviews of this hotel and were worried. However we were greeted with friendly, cheerful staff and a nice little room, that was warm, clean and tidy. Everything was a bit dated, but for the price we paid we were certainly getting value for money.

Room Tip: Really good position if you're going to the Britannia Stadium.

Stayed here before going to alton towers. When we went to get keys the receptionist just handed the keys an told us where our room was. No info on the brekfast etc!! Got to the room an the hot water was HOT and cold water was very warm!! The room was clean an tidy but the worse bed ive ever slept on!! Got up with back ache next morning!! The walls are like paper thin you could hear the people next door full conversation that went on until early hours plus when the pub closed you heard all the drunk ones screaming an shouting getting back to their rooms. Id say i had about 4 hrs sleep the whole night!!! DEFO WOULD NOT STAY THERE AGAIN!!!!!

We stayed with our two children the night before going to alton towers. We booked online and paid 55 for family room with 4 breakfasts. Best thing about this place is the staff, they were all very helpful and friendly. Room was ok, but bathroom was dirty. Floor, doors and woodwork were very tired looking but the main bedroom was well equipped and seemed a little cleaner. Double bed was very uncomfortable, could feel the springs in the mattress. Breakfast was not good either, terrible presentation, not much better tasting and no fruit juice for kids. Would not stay again I'm afraid.

Stayed here in august after an Alton towers trip. The motel is ok, few niggles with the room, tv remote not working, hot water works when it wants but we was only there to sleep so wasn't too bothered. Not much around, about 15 mins in a taxi to town.

No one at the reception, customer had to get someone.
Room full dark musty, tv didn't work, toilet didn't flush, kettle didn't boil, hot water was scolding and cold tap was hot water! Unsafe for my son!!!
Friends experienced breakfast, they found dead wasp under their little girls bacon!
How this place is functioning is beyond me!

Got tickets for alton towers so booked this place in Stoke. As soon as we got to Stoke I knew it wasn't going to be pretty. Officially the worst place on earth i've ever stepped in. Harlem was nicer, absolute no joke. Its like the day after a zombie apocalypse.

The motel actually is a motel like you see in films where prostitutes and crack heads hang out. Guy on reception did make an effort, i'll give him that. Room was depressing. Dirty, grey, bed was well past its use by date. So cheap and old. I could not wait to leave.

Alton towers is great. If you have to travel far to get there please don't stay in Stoke. There is nothing there. Its neighbouring town Hanley was worse! We went for dinner because there are no restaurants in Stoke. While there I saw a girl kicked in the face, numerous fights and police constantly running around. Scary. The people are animals. Place needs a few schools,

Moral of the story. This place should be carpet bombed.
