VERY basic and tired room even by Travelodge standards, burns on skirting board, worn mattress that needed replaced and the bar/restaurant was full of drunk, loud, foul mouthed customers who were allowed to curse swear and be as obnoxious as they wished no matter if it offended other customers/residents.
The reception staff were still asking people who arrived at 2.45 for £10. To get to the 3rd floor we had to travel in one lift to the 2nd floor, get out and then continue in the other lift. We immediately noticed an odd smell, and it was stifling hot. We went out for the evening and came back for a meal which was part of the package at 8.45.I ordered chili chicken noodles and hubby had a pie of some sort - couldn't tell you what! Both meals were awful - the noodles tasted as if they'd been lying in water all day(slop) and hubby's pie would have bounced off the wall without breaking.
We asked for an alarm call at 5pm which we never got, but it didn't matter as we were kept awake all night with the amount of noise there was. Doors slamming, people shouting, dragging cases etc. We gave up at 4am when there was a horrendous noise outside. There was 8 young lads there playing football with their cases.
When we returned from holiday we were allocated a room on the 2nd floor, although still over the main entrance. The room was grubby, and the towels smelt as though they'd been left wet for days before being dried. We were so tired though we did sleep soundly until 6.30am when taxis tooting woke us.
Breakfast was nice and the staff that we spoke to early in the morning were pleasant. We've stayed in many Travel lodges before, so know they're only basic, but this was terrible.Would we stay here again - never

On both occasions the rooms were spotlessly clean, well furnished with plenty of space for the 4 of us.
On the way out, we arrived in time for a meal in the bar and it was very nice, and reasonably priced. On the return leg, only a VERY limited range of snacks were available (and this was about 2230) which was slightly disappointing. Breakfast both mornings were very good, though.
Would highly recommend this hotel to any family needing to be at Manchester Airport in the early hours.
