Travelodge Bangor Wales
10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Make sure you ask for a room upstairs.
"We visit Bangor quite often and had stayed here about five years ago but found that the whole building smelled of cigarette smoke. Following the smoking ban, we decided to try this lodge again. There was no smell of smoke and the place appeared cleaner although a little shabby and worn in places. On arrival we were offered room 15 with the words,"There has a been a small problem with the ceiling due to someone leaving water running." When we opened the door, the smell nearly knocked us back out of the room. We returned to reception and asked for another room. As the receptionist searched the computer for another room, she said, "Well someone's going to have to sleep in there. We're fully booked." She then said she hadn't been to see the problem herself. We were given room 22 which seemed fine until about 11pm. At this time the occupants of the room above arrived. They then walked round for the next two hours. Each time they walked across the room, our room vibrated. The sound proofing needs to be improved. We stayed three nights and the problem was the same on each night. Someone also had a dog in a room near us and it barked several times in the night. In future we shall return to the Premier Travelinn where we have stayed several times before and had a decent night's sleep."

Good rooms but shocking cutomer service
"Booked online and paid Â£56 for a family room. Large, clean and quiet room that overlooked a field. Had everything that we needed. Beds were very comfy. The Travelodge is next to a Burger King, Little Chef and petrol station. Checking in was terrible though. We had no special requests or complaints and yet the receptionist was the most sour, unhelpful and rudest woman you could meet! She snapped when we asked if she knew when the adjacent Burger King closed, barked a long spiel about customers nearly getting in fights when they had incorrect address details and when we asked for directions told us to stop butting in!! Ruined the whole experience and was actually dreading checking out. Thankfully there is a key drop box so if you encounter this receptionist the once you can avoid having to do it again. Personally I'd recommend staying elsewhere in Bangor as you can get a much better service for this price."

"This Travelodge has recently been extended so some of the rooms are some distance from the entrance. The reception is also alongside the cafe, it would be better if they could move reception to somewhere more central. Rooms fine though. I used the Travelodge advance booking to get good cheap rates"

"Very bad customer service. Staff at reception were very unhelpful. We had telephoned beforehand to arrange a cot in the room, but it wasn't there. When we asked where it was they said they would find us one and we could come and collect it from reception! The room was a long walk from the entrance and up a flight of stairs. The room was very warm so we asked reception for a fan. They said they didn't have any and that we were the first people to ever ask for one! The room wasn't great. Needs cleaning better and a lick of paint. No bedding was supplied with the cot. The difference between this Travelodge and Premier Travel Inn's in general is amazing. They are both similar in price but you get so much more with the latter."

"We, 2 adults and 6 year old, stayed for a week to enable us to do some Hillwalking in Snowdonia. Lovely staff, very clean room, safe car park, within easy access of ferries and main roads, and very cheap. What more could we ask for? New carpets were being laid in the hotel while we were there, but this did not cause any problem whatsoever. All work was carried out during the day, and was cleaned up completely. Would recommend heartily as a no frills place to sleep."

it's a travelodge
"Clean, warm, soulless same as most travelodges. Big Tesco next junction up if you are more in the market for a pre packed sandwich than the Burger King / Little Chef - what happened to the romance of travel !!!!"

Dull and souless
"Easy location to find but a really dull and souless room. As with all Travelodges only 1 towel is supplied and you can "ask" for a hairdryer/iron on a first come first serve basis. We stayed only 1 night to give us access to Caernarfon Castel and Portmierion. We drove into Bangor to find a place to eat - what a dump. It was really dirty. The streets looked as if they hadn't been swept in weeks and there seemed to be an awful lot of Charity Shops in the High Street. We reluctantly ate at the Little Chef on site. I ordered an omelette - no eggs - so I had a baked potato instead. It must have been cooking for at least 12 hours. My husband had the same but with a different filling. The service was quick but I'd give it a miss if I could. There was little traffic noise in the room but we had to walk a long way to the end of the hotel through corridor after corridor to get find the room. Would I stay here again? No. For Â£56 a night I'm sure that you can do better. We booked at short notice and paid the price."

Bargain hotel close to national park
"We found hotel staff friendly and helpful and the room was very clean. Of course it was basic, but it had everything we needed. We booked a few weeks ahead and managed to get a Supersaver rate of 10 pounds per night for two of us. Cheaper than camping!! We enjoyed our weekend so much that we've booked two more weekend breaks there this year."

"Pro: Reasonable price for UK, but... Cons: Grossly overpriced by American standards. U.S. chains like Country Inns, Comfort suites, etc. are ten times nicer for half the price. Ground floor room with window that didn't fully close and didn't lock; Welsh hoodlums knocking on window as they ran past on the outdoor sidewalk in the night (room entered via interior hallway, so why is there a sidewalk right next to the window???); No shampoo, hairdryer, or clock in our rooms. No mattress pads or fitted sheets on beds; room doors do not have working deadbolts or safety locks; Noisy swinging hallway (fire) doors with lots of very noisy hallway traffic. Reception staff not rude, but certainly not friendly like all our other stops throughout the UK. Finally, the website offers an apology for inconvenience whilst they add an extension to the hotel. Unfortunately, they don't say that all of the rooms are in the extension! Why else would the hallway floors be ordinary concrete and not carpet? Did they mean renovation? Look elsewhere unless you wish to have your Welsh vacation memories soured by this awful hotel."
