Advantages: Friendly, Know what you are getting, CLEAN
Disadvantages: none, none, none
We were visitng a friend and in desperate need to stay somewhere, all that was available was a Travel Inn at 42.00 (as it was then) it did seem pricey but we had no choice.
We were shown into a very spacious and clean room, decorated pleasantly too. The windows are double glazed so we couldnt hear the motorway running outside, and the whole room had a feel of comfort.
There is a sofa which converts to a bed if needed, and a large double bed. There is a tv secured on a swivel base, daughter liked this the most!!
There are tea and coffee and hot chocolate and biscuits, and you just need ask if you need more, we use approx. 8 sachets of chocolate a visit. The bathrooms have an automatic fan when you enter and a bath and shower, as well as shaving plug and mirror. You also get complimentary soap, shoe polish, and some have mini sewing kits, but this depends on the location, we have found.
The tv also has an alarm clock so you dont need to worry if you forget to pack one.
Most are loacated next to a motorway or in city centres and all of them offer you a map to find them, in booking online the back is there to print if by telephone they will tell you on the phone most suitable route.
They are usually attatched to a brewers fayre or brewsters or beefeater, however the one time we went to Chester and it was next to a Road chef, not suitable for a 2 yr old they transferred us five minutes down the road to warrington with better child facilities, they did warn us it was the noiseiest of all the inns but we have to say we were right at the back onto the motorway and we heard nothing!! The odd lorry faintly but that was it. They still insisted it was very noisy but we were happy with the room and as it was the only family room they gave us a complimentary visit for next time.
Now lets say you find the amount expensive well for the price you get assured cleanliness and comfort, the rooms are always the same layout
so you never know you are anywhere different, hence the title, as on business trips its been known for hubby to drink too much and lose ther bathroom, but not in a travel inn!!!!
IF for any reason you are unhappy as we have been only once and it was a damp smell in the bathroom, we mentioned it at the desk on checkout just to tell them and when we got home a phone call form them and our money was returned as they like you to be 100% happy!! Hows that for service.
We can get B + B cheaper but you dont know what you are going in to so we stick to Travel Inn all the time now and find the staff to be the most friendliest and courteaus and in all the Inns. Some even get free newspapers.
You do get the option to order breakfast if required and usually 3-4 pounds an adult meal, but we like the fact the room does not have to be vacated until 12.00 mid-day so we make the most of a lie in if daughter lets us.
