“Not good - get what you pay for”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

This hotel is very basic and in need of urgent refurbishment. The family room was tired, the corridor outside our room smelt awful - like a dirty back alley in a town centre on a Saturday night. What surprised us is that dogs are allowed to stop along with their owners in the hotel - as we found out when the couple came out from the next room with their Staffordshire bull terrier in tow. What's a shame is that the location is good for Scarborough town centre, the front, beach etc. but our best advice is to spend a little bit more and stop at the Premier Travel Inn two minutes away.

After having a bad hotel experience already this day, we hurried to the travelodge feeling very cold and tired. We asked for a nice warm cosy room. However, the only request they got right was warm. On entering the room we were disgusted to find the toliet had not even been flushed! The walls were filthy along with the whole appearance of the bathroom. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. There was also a very foul smell in the corridors. Needless to say we will not be returning!

Room was very basic. Not great at all, parts of the wall falling off. There was a needle and cotton in the curtains.

The bathroom was adequate but the toilet seat was loose. My daughter enjoyed herself though so that added a star.

The food was very poor one of the worst breakfasts I have had.

Booked to stay here on 1st of December. It was freezing. We had two rooms, one on the 1st floor and one on the 4th. The one on the 1st was literally like a fridge, there was NO heating on that floor at all. Our friend could not stay in there all night. Neither could she stay with us, there were no other hotels with vacant rooms nearby so we had no choice but to come home to Leeds!
So many people were complaining. We cancelled our rooms as we literally had no choice but to leave and were promised a refund but no, not a peep, not a sausage.
You cant contact Travelodge direct on the phone (I wonder why). Email or writing is the only method as the instant chat does not work EVER. I had done both, TWICE, and thats right, not a sausage has been heard.
DO NOT STAY IN THIS 1980s Eastern block style hotel that is a fire hazard in itself with the corridors and room numbers that really do not make any sense!! One very nasty 'hotel' indeed, I think the term 'hostel' is over egging it!

Room Tip: There are NO good rooms. If you do happen to stay there book a family room (for the same price) as t...

You get what you pay for. Plain no expense spared basic room. The heating needs attention as the central heating system isn't on and our room had its own electric heater that was set to full but switched off at intervals. We wer cold so had to go to reception to ask for a blanket. They don't have blankets but brought to our room another duvet and ectra pillow that we had asked for. No complaints there. Breakfast was a problem As we had an event to go to for 9.00 am we arrived for breakfast at 8.05 am to find only bacon adn srambled eggs ready. The chef was running late I was told. Not good enough I thought, if breakfast starts at 8.00 then all items of food should be ready and avialable at 8.00. Between 8.10 and 8.20 other hot items were brought to the buffett. Had this been any later I would have asked for a refund. We only stayed for one night so it sufficed our needs.

I stayed at this travelodge 2 years ago and was very pleased. This time I was very disappointed. Some staff at the front desk were very unwelcoming, she didn't explain anything to us and she only smiled when we left. The front foyer looks good but then you go behind the doors into the hallways and rooms and it looks awful. Everything seems tatty and there is a big patch of mould on the wall. The toilet was blocked on arrival and the bed was so hard. The bin was broken and the room was so small and dingy. There was hardly any light in the room. The breakfast wasn't up to standard, We were waiting about 10 minutes for the cooked breakfast to come, then there was no mushrooms or tomatoes. The juice was watered down. I'm glad me and my family only had to stay 1 night. Never again.

On entering the establishment, it was like any other Travelodge. Clean, welcoming and functional. But on discovering our room, we were in for a surprise. The first thing we noticed was the strong smell of damp. We ended up buying a room freshener. The view was wonderful and nature had done it's best to impress. The room again was sparse and bland. I'm not stupid and do realise that we were not paying full whack, but seriously Travelodge, make a bit more effort. My wife had booked the room and Had requested one with a bath, as, at the time , she was suffering from a bad back. We got a shower. We asked to be moved the following day to a room with a bath, as we were staying for three nights, and the staff were very helpful. Also the first room we stayed in had an awful smell of almost sewage like proportions when running water down the basin. I could go on at more length, but needless to say, the hotel needs some serious money spent on it. You should be ashamed of yourselves Travelodge and grateful that your staff put up with such thirdworld conditions. The staff were the only endearing element of our stay. Oh yes, and finally the lift was out of order the whole time we were there. So god knows what the elderly and disabled did.
