    Good

    Very large room for the money

    1) Bathroom door was destroyed and didn't lock. 2) Small refrigerator was broken and an extra working one was placed beside it. 3) all of the outlets were so worn out that our cell phone chargers wouldn't stay plugged in - same for the computers. 4) No outlets to the right of the vanity for plugging in coffee maker so it had to literally balance over on the left-hand side of the sink - almost falling into the sink. 5) It appeared that a young couple with a baby was possibly living in one of the rooms due to the large plant outside their door. That wasn't the problem though... The problem was that it looked like they may possibly be dealing drugs out of their room.

    Our stay wasn't bad, but this was probably the worst facility we've ever stayed. It was in VERY poor condition, and no where near worth $100 a night. There was rust and stains everywhere and it was just not clean. The shower curtain was full of mold and the words roach motel wouldn't be far from a description of this hotel. Like I said it wasn't a bad stay, but I was not impressed and will not stay again or reccommend this hotel to anyone. Sorry. I really don't like to leave a poor review, but there was nothing positive about the hotel except the staff.

    I liked the pool and the free breakfast.

    The breakfast could have been better.

    When my room that was supposed to be ready wasn't clean at the time of check-in, the hotel staff let us stay in a king-bed suite for the same price as the smaller room.

    The first room wasn't ready when it was supposed to be. The sheets weren't made and the room had a bad odor. Also, in our new room the kitchen light didn't work at all and we did see a cockroach on the wall twice. The alarm clock and one of the lamps didn't work.

    The location .

    We could not get clean towels or washcloths . The room seemed to be pieced together . The door lock messed up and we had to make several trips up and down stairs to front office for help ...

    The staff took care of us , even though they did not show our reservations in their computer, which we made with Booked.net. And we had written confirmation

    Nice facility - poor breakfast

    Staff was friendly. We received our cot that we requested very quickly. Pool was clean.

    We did not have a shower head in bath and could not take bath because there was not a plug for drain. Breakfast food had no selection. There was only a few dried out pastries and dry bagels to pick from.

    About the only thing I liked about Travelodge was the location.

    I was totally shocked at what I saw when I pulled up.Green pool! In June??? At check-in instead of the King non smoking I had booked with Booked.net I was given a smoking 2 queen bed room which had no bath cloths & mold in the bathroom.Never any ice in the ice machine.Will not be staying at this location again unless changes are made to it!

    The people were very friendly and nice.. Good location. suprise no micro or frige. When you are travling that is very helpful.

    We were in room 102. There were coffee packets to make our own coffee in the morning, but no coffee pot. Walked on the carpet but before we went to bed we needed to wash out feet as they were black. Unless they were new carpets and the dye was coming off.

    We did not feel safe. There were crews of hispanic men piled into rooms actually living there and drinking beer hanging over the rail. They were cooking on hotplates in their room. We didn't feel that our Motorcycles would be safe overnight. The rooms were not very clean and our friend only got one towel. They professed to be near the water but it was not the ocean but an inland body of water. We felt that the wording was deceptive.

    Fabulous

    The Travelodge was across the street from LuLu's and close to the beach and shopping.

    The room had a musty odor and there were only two towels.

    Location

    There were holes in the blankets. The box springs and mattresses were torn and worn. It was suppose to be a non smoking room but it smelled like it had been smoked in. The phone had most of the buttons missing. We won't stay there again.

    We stayed 4 nights with no service to our room. On the 3rd day I had to ask for towels & was told they had to wash some. They brought them to me at 930 pm. The first night I put the do not disturb sign on the door so we could sleep in till 9 am. At 8am there was constant knocking on the door it was staff asking if we needed anything. the next morning we left at 7am and returned at 3 pm expecting a clean room but it had not been touched. This was the worst experience I have ever had with any motel. The most attention we received was 3 call from the desk from 930 am till1030am on our last day asking when we would be leaving. (check out is 11:00am).
