Travelodge Avenel Woodbridge
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Avenel
Reviewed 8 January 2012

OK - I admit - we booked this hotel based on price without checking the reviews first. Result - we arrived, paid - and walked out without staying when we saw the room.
All we needed was a clean, decent place to stay the night en route on a joint business trip.
I guess I am just too naive as I should have realized that the "tell-tale" signs were not good.
The reception is in fact a person behind glass - warning number one.
I guess the signs saying "No visitors allowed" should also have been a warning...

We checked in and paid - and I said to my husband - let's look at the room before unloading the stuff from the car.
We walked along a dingy corridor - to open the room's door - only to find a large bed facing us with a huge mirror behind it and another mirror on the ceiling. The carpet looked yucky.
It is sufficient to say that we didn't even cross the threshold - and went straight back to our car and drove off - the first time I have ever done this anywhere in the world. This was a big mistake as we had already paid by credit card and booking.com would not refund and nor would the hotel.
To summarize - we lost our payment and we drove off at 10PM to find a better, more respectable environment.
