Stayed here 23rd may 2013 . Hotel only 18 month old on the old boddingtons brewer site . Booked in room227 on the back looking into car park . Good staff , very clean , small rooms, but okay . Went out shopping came back to go to concert at men . Slept well , nice bed , had the breakfast at 9 am and left . Hassle free .
Word of warning its a 3pm checkin if you turn up before this you have to pay £10.00 , but sit in bar and wait till 3 .

Staff were extremely friendly and the to help with any issues! Room was clean and well looked after, slightly smaller in size than expected, but was no issue at all (stayed in Take That wing). Paid £45 per room (2 rooms) for the night over bank holiday which was very very cheap compared to other hotels. Despite being on a busy road, was not very noisy at all! Great location as town is walkable, or the price of a taxi is very cheap. Overall brilliant stay - would definitely use again.

Room Tip: Stayed in 'Take That' wing, very clean and well kept.

We stayed at the hotel when we went to see Eric Clapton at the Manchester Arena and paid £30 per night per room - unbeatable value! There was a notice in the lobby which said that all rooms had now been refurbished and our rooms on the first floor ('Take That' wing...) were bright, shiny and clean with new furniture and linens. It's certainly the cleanest and freshest Travelodge we have stayed in with a large bar / dining area on the ground floor. The rooms are standard Travelodge ones, which are fine for a short stay, although basic if staying for very long. Check-in was friendly and speedy and the Reception Staff were helpful with directions etc - although you can see the Arena from the door of the hotel and it was a 5 minute walk (in the rain...) away. Due to the weather and having read the reviews telling of the long waiting time for snacks and meals at the hotel, we decided to grab a McD's from the Arena concourse after the gig: this was a big mistake as the McD's ('We stay open after concerts') was on the verge of closing and we ended up eating 'left-overs' as the staff weren't willing to cook food to our orders and we had to have what was already prepared and on the chutes. There must be a better alternative than this? We had a quiet night's sleep: the hotel guests were quiet and our room overlooked an inner courtyard. We had pre-booked breakfast and this was excellent for the price: as much as we could eat and the food was fresh and hot. My only complaint was that the coffee from the machine was made with dried milk instead of fresh; although there was a jug of fresh milk by the tea-pot, so you could make yourself black coffee and then add fresh milk. We avoided paying any Parking charges as the streets next to the hotel are Disc Zones and have 2 hours free, 10a.m. until 6 p.m. Our car is a BMW and we made it clear that there was nothing left inside: it was untouched and undamaged when we returned to it the next day. We arrived just after 4p.m. and moved the car into the next street at 10a.m. the following morning.
This is an ideal place to stay if you don't wish to spend too much on accommodation on top of the price of a concert ticket: it was nearly as close to the Arena as the Park Hotel, at a fraction of the price and had the advantage of 'free' parking nearby.

Stayed overnight for a concert at the Arena. Room was modern and clean, and the bed was very comfortable with 2 soft pillows each!

Self check-in machine was quick and easy to use, and was a nice touch to the modern theme.

The hotel is within a few minutes walk to the arena.

Only downside was no parking, but this was to be expected of a city hotel. But nearby parking was available and was only £3 a day.

This hotel is situated on an industrial estate near a railway viaduct and there are commercial vehicles loading in the early hours that keep you awake. The area feels dangerous at nights and there is nowhere safe to park your car either (the independent car park next door is not manned at night).

The staff in the hotel are indifferent to the point of being robotic and totally disinterested. There was a mistake in my booking and I arrived a week early and they made me pay again at a higher rate, rather than just bringing forward my booking that I had already paid for. Spend a little more money and book somewhere nicer, safer and more friendly, like the Premier Inn Salford Quays for example.
