We stayed at Travelodge one night for a business conference. We travel frequently to Orlando on business trips and usually stay at a resort nearby, but we didn't make our reservation in time. In looking last minute for an adequate place to stay, we wanted to find a room that wasn't too far from the conference, would be sufficiently comfortable to get some rest, was close to a variety of restaurants and was close to the interstate. Travelodge met all these needs and surprisingly was more comfortable than we expected. The exterior of the hotel didn't look renovated as advertised on the website, however the room was indeed updated, with new bedding, contemporary furniture and new bathroom fixtures, and even included a refrigerator and safe. The TV was still an older model, however we didn't watch any television during our stay. The beds were extremely comfortable, the heat/AC unit was efficient and very quiet, and there was no noticeable outside noise during the night. We were also greatly impressed with the professional reception during check-in and check-out and how attentive the staff was to my special request for a ground floor room due to recent surgery. Compared to the price we usually pay for hotel accommodations, Travelodge was almost a steal. I'm even surprised to say that we were more comfortable at Travelodge than the "other" luxurious resort where we usually stay. We'll definitely return to Travelodge in the future. The staff deserves recognition for representing the hotel in such a professional manner.
