This Travelodge, although next to the control tower, is on the far side of the airport and is a 5-10 minute drive - there's now way to walk it as it's off a dual carriageway. It has an NCP car park next to it (£7.50/24hrs, though you can stay a few days and then buy a new £7.50 ticket for hotel guests which lets you exit, which means the other days are forgotten about - convenient tip!!).
The room was clean and comfy, nice bed and pillows. Bathroom small but clean, needed a bit more water pressure but all was otherwise good.
Staff - on the first night / morning, they were all excellent, chatty, helpful and nice. On the second morning, I came down and nobody said a word, the breakfast buffet had run out of sausages, bread (apart from 2 crusts) and everything was depleted, nobody seemed to be checking on anything.
So if you're there on a good day with good staff, it was very good (almost premier inn standards), but on a bad day it was a bit rubbish really.
£6 taxi to the Airport or NEC is great value (call A2B cabs from reception), and £13 to Broad Street if you want to go into town. This made it good value compared to being at a more expensive central location.
Re airport noise, I didn't really have a problem - I was on the 3rd floor on the airport side, and with the window closed, the noise wan't intrusive.
