You can't do much better for price - £29 for a night! The room was very hot on arriving though the radiator was turned off. Car park across the road was v small and full but the cattle market one was not too far away.

We stayed in room 127.. Don't ever take that room. The creaking from the room above was unbearable..It went on right through the night until we could take no more. We packed our bags and left at 5.30 am without a wink of sleep.
I expected the room to be cool because we had no heating on and it was about 8 degrees c outside but it was stifling. Couldn't open window because the room was on the busy road.
I've stayed here before and enjoyed it. It was just the noisy room this time
Thank skof2002

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you were caused discomfort due to the room temperature and noise levels. We supply fans in the rooms or at reception in attempt to make the rooms more cool if the window cannot be opened or this does not suffice. We also provide double or triple glazing within our hotels in attempt to reduce the impact that external noise may have on our guest’s stay. In any case, we apologise if these measures were not enough to guarantee you a good night’s sleep. Thank you again for your comments, and we hope to welcome you back to stay with us again in the near future.

Our eldest is at Lancaster Uni, and this place is without a doubt the cheapest and most convenient place we have found to stay while up visiting him. It is located on the 'Uni side of the city' and if you are really lucky you can get a parking spot in the small car park just over the road from the front doors of the hotel. If not, then a quick pop into reception and they give you a map to show you the nearest overnight alternative car parks, which is really helpful.

Travelodges are more or less the same, wherever you go, and as such you know what you are getting. Its always clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and they always have the extra beds ready that we request at the time of booking.

For weekend stays, note that one side of the hotel overlooks a Night clubs, and that can be a bit noisy at 'chucking out time' if you have your window open, but until you get there its pot luck if you are going to be on that side of things. They do have a business floor (floor 3) which we usually try and book, but apart from that there hasn't usually been much of a noise issue.

On one Saturday stay we did end up on the noisy side. We had already booked for another stay a month later and the Manager kindly added a note to that booking to make sure our next room was not on that side of the hotel, which was a really good service that's not usually possible when booking via the internet.

There is only a 'breakfast bag' available here for the mornings, which we have never tried, but there are several pubs in short walking distance which open early doors for breakfasts. There's a wetherspoons right next door, or 'the Pendle Witch' just round the corner. There's a Toby carvery going towards Morecambe, which does a huge breakfast carvery too. But for a budget breakfast, just take your own cereal and pop downstairs to the Tesco express for fresh milk in the morning.

The reception can be busy at 3pm as thats the earliest check in time, but the staff are usually friendly and efficient. Check out is 12 noon, so plenty of time in the mornings. Reception staff are happy to provide extra items such as a hairdryer and fan if requested (it can get very hot and stuffy in the rooms in the summer)

The thing that does bug me though is that wildly fluctuating prices for the rooms that seem to change on a daily basis, (which is a general moan for travelodge, and not directed at this hotel in particular). Business floor rooms are a little bit more, but worth it for a quieter night, but sometimes they charge extra for a third adult, sometimes not, and its sometimes better to use a different PC to make the bookings as I suspect cookies keep your searches, and do appear to affect the price.

All in all its your usual Travelodge. Its conveniently right on the edge of the small city centre of Lancaster. As such you are only a short walk round the corner to the middle of the city with all the usual shops you would expect, but the convenience can be offset by 'city noise' that you have to expect from a hotel in that location. Great for a cheap city break, not far from the coast, and a decent and convenient place to stop for the night if coming to Lancaster for Uni visits.

Its served us well over the last 3 years!

Fantastic Travelodge located right in the centre of Lancaster. There is a Tesco express just downstairs which sells instant porridge (much cheaper than the £5 breakfast box in travellodge!). Within minutes walk from all the shops of Lancaster. Also about 40 mins drive from blackpool. Was the closest Travelodge I could get for the illuminations, but was a great stay.
