“Horribly unfriendly staff , dirty, nothing worked.”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Never ever stay at the roach hotel. Lights hanging, not working. Crack infested, disease infested, I think marion county jail has better staff and accommodations. I am soo glad my kids weren't here. The lights don't work. Dirty methed out staff walk around chewing on their neck. And no refunds!!!! No coffee pot, no clock , this is by far the most disgusting place I have ever seen.

This place is dirty not maintained at all. The staff is rude, The neighborhood is shall we say very undesirable. I am glad I did not have any children with me. I would be afraid for their safety Beds were dirty, Bath did not look like it had been cleaned in a long time the manager was rude and did not care about my issues. The only thing I liked it that Joe's crab shack is close to this hotel

This is not a travellodge any more, new owners. was closed for awhile, but now re-opened. We stayed five nights, the room was clean, beds were comfortable. For the price it was a great deal. You didn't have all the bells and whistles you have with a expensive motel, but it was well worth doing without it. Will be back next year.

Room was dirty, the beds had body hair, stains and bugs on it.
When talked to the manager and house keeping the had no explanation for the rooms condition. Would not refund my money, I was only at the hotel less then a half hour.
DO NOT RECOMMEND THE TRAVELLODGE TERRIBLE!!!!

We recently stayed at this hotel when we were in town for college basketball's "Final Four". We only picked this hotel because everything downtown was already booked and this was the closest we could get to the downtown area. Before arriving, we were extremely disappointed to be staying so far away and at a 2 star hotel, but I'm happy to say we were very pleasantly surprised!
The hotel is only a straight road and about 8 miles from downtown so it's impossible to get lost if you are driving and about $15 to get there in a taxi. It is right off the highway so it is accessible but also very quiet.
The room was very basic but everything we needed in the circumstances and a great price. (Unlike other hotels in town, they didn't increast their prices for the high demand that weekend). Very clean and a great staff who were very accommodating to all our requests, including putting a fridge and microwave in our room.
The hotel provides free wireless internet (which is more than you get in a lot of 4 or 5 star hotels) and there are lots of conveniences nearby as it shares a parking lot with Taco Bell, Subway and Denny's, and Bob Evans, Red Lobster and a CVS drug store are across the street.
If you are looking for a no frills place to stay, this hotel is what you are looking for.
