Advantages: Location, restaurant, food
We stayed at Travelodge Docklands in April when I was running the London Marathon. I chose this hotel because it was one of the cheapest in London and was fairly close to Greenwich, with good tube links. However, although it was the cheapest, it wasn't cheap compared to other Travelodges - probably because it was the Marathon weekend and everywhere hitched up their prices. I booked online and got a rate of £55.70 for the first night and £99.50 for the second night. Breakfast was extra - as is usual with Travelodges.
It is easy to get to by tube - the nearest station is East India on the DLR. You have to go over the footbridge over the A1261 though - don't make the mistake of going down the steps first!
It's then a short walk of just a couple of minutes pretty much straight ahead and it's just round a corner. As I had printed out all the booking confirmations - I simply had to show them to the reception staff to get our keys.
The room was of a reasonable standard for a Travelodge - basic and functional. There was a kettle and a television and the bed was fairly comfortable.
We had ordered breakfast and it was served downstairs in the large restaurant/bar. There was certainly plenty of room - there were lots of tables and the food was excellent and plentiful. There was also a large flat screen television in the breakfast room.
I went to register at the Expo on the Saturday and came back before they had finished serving breakfast. I asked if it was OK if I grabbed a coffee and was told "OK, although we're not really supposed to!" by the waitress, with a wink.
A good one as Travelodges go. I just wish I'd booked a third night - getting back to Euston after just having run 26.2 miles is no fun!
