“Large room with a strange smell”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

The staff at the Travelodge were helpful in moving me from one very cramped room with two beds to a room with one bed and more space. Both rooms provided the kind of two-star accomodation I expected, although the first room was a bit of a mess: the shower was awful and badly needed a renovation, there was mildew on the walls in the bathroom as well as the shower door and fixtures, and you needed to wear flip-flops in the shower. The bathroom in the second room was very clean -- white shower walls, new glass door, perfect fixtures. It could not have been more different from the first. In both rooms, there was a terrible smell that I assume was disinfectant, since it was stronger after the housekeeping had been in to clean the room.
