Car park was terrible with full litter bins everywhere, no shower gel in room and emergency razors not available at reception. The occupants of the room above were noisy stamping around until 11 pm then they were up a 6 am doing the same

Stayed here last year while in the area for work and was on the car park side of building and the stay was fine.

This year i was given a room on the road side of the building and the double glazing did nothing to drown out the road noise.
Thankfully this died down as the time went on.

They have given the room features an update at this location and the room had a new much more comfortable mattress, 4 fluffy pillows
(Better than you'd get in a premier inn) and a cosy duvet which resulted in a very comfortable and good nights sleep.

Road noise aside the stay was as good as you'd expect from a travelodge or similar. The staff were friendly, helpful and check in was easy.

I don't think they cleaned the bathroom as well as they should have as was clear the toilet had not had a thorough clean inside the bowl
But otherwise the room was very clean and airy with everything you'd expect to find.

Plenty of car parking available too.

All in all a good stay in a convenient location with a petrol station, little chef next door and pub just across the road by the other travelodge (fontwell park)
Check out its reviews on here if you are thinking of going there.
Breakfast at little chef is good way to start day and i got a 10% voucher with my travelodge booking online.

The newly refurbished room made a good first impression and the new double bed was excellent. The single bed & pillow were obviously older and not the same quality or condition. The room was only made up for 2 although the booking was for 3. A word with gent in reception resulted in everything sorted out in double quick time. The car park was too small and we parked on the slip road by the petrol station.

The hotel is tired. The staff service is just about adequate. The shower curtain looked like a footballer had just cleaned off after a muddy game. Coffee stains on sideboard. Oh, plus a peeping tom at midnight, no CCTV, so staff said there wasn't much we could do...

On arrival at the hotel we were kindly greeted at reception and the team member was very helpful. The room was well presented very clean and everything worked. There is everything you need in a hotel room and things available at reception. I liked the fact that the hotels are consistently very good having stayed at others and of course good value for money.

Stayed here for a few days with family to enjoy the local attractions, such as Butlins and Arundel castle. The room was clean and looked like it had been refurbished recently. The staff were also vwery good and accomadating. We needed to store some milk for our daughter overnight and they kindly let us make use of their staff fridge for this purpose.

As with other Travelodge's that I have stayed in, the TV's are crap!! Well in this lodge the TV did work but kept producing a large buzzing sound. Also, you are only supplied a small bar of soap and have advised Travelodge on their feedback form that family rooms could do better if they were given 2 bars (something to remember).

The staff all had good local knowledge and like everyone that we met within East Sussex, they where very friendly and always happy to help.

The room did get a bit hot though and there were no fans that could be loaned out. So might be worth packing a fan if you have children or suffer from the heat during the night.

The main bed as well as the spare bed were excellent but the 3rd bed was absolute rubbish even for a toddler to sleep on. Also the fire doors are quite loud and as our room was beside a door we kept hearing this loud slamming noise. I have also asked Travelodge to look into dampers for the doors.

The parking is free but if you return late to the lodge you will most probably have to park at the Littlechef parking at the bottom. Also no allocated parking for families with small children.

Overall a good stay due to quality of room and helpful staff, so would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms close to firedoors if possible.
