“Cheap but poor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

Very run-down, creaky floors, flaky decoration and the windows are covered with layers of bird crap. At breakfast we had to ask for essentials, eg glasses, cutlery, bacon, tomatoes which then resulted in waiting several times. Room was inexpensive but would rather pay more for better quality experience. Won't be booking here again!

Accepts dogs (at a charge) but rooms are not standard and this time had no bath and a lumpy mattress - parking always hit and miss but handy for beach and town - would probably stay again with the dogs.

The hotel has old single-glazed wooden framed windows. These are draughty and don't provide much sound insulation. Being near the sea you get a lot of exterior noise from seagulls.

The mattress quality doesn't help provide a good night's sleep either. It's less comfortable than what's available from Argos as a 'value' occasional mattress.

The bathroom was a decent size but the bath was grubby.

The most positive thing was the tea & coffee facilities.

If it wasn't for the view in this room I'm not sure this place would be worthy of rating.
Staff: shout out to Jordan, Hannah and John. Each were very helpful and seemed to know this hotel wasn't the greatest but did their best to make up for it.
Breakfast: very standard selection but the juice is watered down and the rest of it isn't worth the 7.95. Save the sausage though. It was good.
Room: Do not get tgis room with a baby. The view was very nice and allows for early wakeup as the sunrise lights up. The bed is deplorable. Never felt more uncomfortable and I deployed to Afghanistan. The smell that welcomes you into the room is something of a baitshop. You do get a seagull that visits regularly to say hi. We named him Merlin. The floors are as creaky as an 80 year old paratroopers back.
There is a sign in the lobby saying they will remodel soon and they certainly need to.
Location is great. A quick walk down hill to the beach or up hill to two great restaurants Cafe Fish and Steps Steakhouse.

Staff very friendly and polite, and the view from room 421 was superb, half Grand Hotel and half Sea view. Room was very clean but a little distressed. Only downside was the noise - The bed creaked like a Mo-fo and there were a LOT of slamming doors and heavy footsteps until around 1am. An IPod loaded with Vivaldi is recommended if you want a half decent nights sleep, however, these are only minor niggles for the price paid, overall Scarborough is a superb place to walk around in, especially 5-7am when there are no horrid humans around (Second only to Edinburgh, a true urban wanderers paradise) and two nights for less that £80 is nothing to be sniffed at where this muppet comes from!

Room Tip: Anything on the sea facing side is probably ok - 3rd floor and up to be sure. 421 to 424 excellent.

Everything about this hotel was wonderful. Great sea view and only moments away from the centre of Scarborough. There is no dedicated hotel parking as such but plenty of space out the front of it you're staying longer term then Balmoral NCP parking is cheap at £3.50 per day if you catch the early bird parking before 0930hrs. Room was excellent, clean and well presented. Try and get a 4th floor room for some amazing sea views. Generally, a fantastic experience with really helpful staff and I will definitely be staying again.

This Travelodge is in a great location over looking the sea if you get the right room. The hotel itself is everything you'd expect a Travelodge to be; cheap, basic and nothing to write home about! Does its job for a one night stay over, can't grumble. Breakfast was OK but not worth the cost.
