The room was great. The traffic noise was terrible. Next time we would like room away from main road.

Clean place at a great rate if you're passing through and just need a place to sleep. Dog friendly with no extra few is refreshing.

I've stayed here before. The rooms aren't fancy but they're clean and the beds and pillows are very comfortable. There is fresh fruit avaible around the clock as well as continental breakfast in the morning. The only annoyance is the weak wifi signal.

Our stay was short, this is a nice hotel in the middle of the city.

The room was set right for comfort every easy to use. The only i would to see is that i could write a check to pay for the room.

While we're used to staying at higher end hotels, we decided to give this one a try because the rates were so reasonable. This is a no frills hotel so if you don't have high expectations your stay will likely not be too bad. First of all the good stuff. The staff is probably about the friendliest and most helpful you'll find anywhere. When we had trouble connecting to wifi they immediately took care of the problem, calling the company that provides their service and resetting the wifi. Once they got it working, it worked very well. We are currently staying in a higher end hotel and the wifi signal is not nearly as good as the one we had at Trevelodge. My daughter likes to watch TV shows and movies on her computer when we travel and at Travelodge she had no trouble watching entire shows. Where we are now, it keeps buffering, making it difficult for her to watch an entire show. The room was nice and clean and the beds were fairly comfortable. You can get a decent night's sleep on the beds. One of the problems we had was that the walls and ceilings really are paper thin. There was a very cranky, spoiled toddler in the room next to us who made his or her wishes known very loudly. We also heard the other people in the room talking in normal tones. I think the circus must have been in town because the room over our heads must have held a herd of elephants. I couldn't believe the amount of noise that came from over head while I was trying to sleep. Eventually it all died out though as people settled in for the night. The other noisy thing was the doors. I don't know why people insist on slamming hotel room doors repeatedly. I try to close them gently and remind my family to do the same as there may be people sleeping. The breakfast was minimal. The only hot item was white gravy to put over biscuits. I've never been a fan of the stuff. Other than that there were mini muffins, yogurt, apples bread, cold cereal ( but they only had whole milk to pour over it), cold hard boiled eggs, yogurt, plain instant oatmeal but no brown sugar for it and coffee. Normally I believe they also have juice but the machine wasn't working while we were there. It would have been nice to have a container of juice instead. I've had better at other hotels but when you're on the road, you take what you can get. It was adequate but not anything special. The other thing that really bothered me was the lack of adequate lighting in the room. They use the compact fluorescent bulbs and must use a very low wattage because the room was cavelike for the entire stay. The front desk told me that the bulbs eventually warm up and provide better light but it never happened. We couldn't open the curtains to get more light as our room was on the 1st floor and the window looked out onto the parking lot of a bar. People from the bar could walk right up to our window and look in so we kept the curtains tightly closed. The fluorescent light over the mirror lent a greenish cast to our skin, making makeup application difficult. All in all, for the money this wasn't too bad. I've been in better and worse. If you need to save some money on your stay and can tolerate a few inconveniences then this place will do just fine. If you're used to high end hotels and amenities then look elsewhere.

It was a nice hotel for the money, airport shuttle and breakfast were good features. Drawbacks include thin walls and excessive noise from lobby especially Saturday night. Staff was excellent and very friendly.

The hotel was in a good location, the room was clean with comfortable bedding, and a descent breakfast.

Our room had nice amenities like a fridge, microwave, coffee pot and hair dryer. We did not eat the breakfast. The bathrooms were clean, but the room did have a a slight musty smell, maybe from the carpet. We were there for 2 days for a wedding and the hotel is located near restaurants and a walmart. Staff was personable

Provided amenities e.g. computer and local information (restaurants).

Easy to find, good value and I would stay again...

Four women (Mom, daughters, granddaughter) traveling together; do we get two rooms or a suite? We found the perfect solution at the Travelodge. They have rooms with three queen beds! The sink/vanity area complete with hair dryer is separate from the shower and toilet, so we were able to handle the bathroom situation nicely. Plus, there is a bar area with a microwave, fridge and small sink. The room was super clean. There is even an ironing board and iron in case you need to do any touch-ups before heading out to that special event. The continental breakfast is basic but adequate enough to get you going for the day. The breakfast area is small, so we ended up taking a tray back to the room as there are only three tables to accommodate breakfasters. The staff is especially friendly and inviting, making your stay that much more enjoyable. We had a great time and would definitely stay there again.

We stopped here for a halfway rest and we did rest. Excellent location.

Honestly, for the price - this hotel was great! I had a 3-day stay and was trying to find the cheapest option but was worried about the quality. Not an issue - everything was great!

I've stayed at the Travelodge in Grand Island 8 or 10 times over the last few years and I've always found it to be clean and comfortable. The beds are comfortable and the breakfast is good. It's a very good value.

Located at an easy access location on a main street very close to State Fair grounds. Very reasonably priced and adjacent to a 24 hr. resturant. Just what I needed for an overnight stay.

This travelodge has very adequate accommodations at a very good price. There was a walk in shower in my unit. The walls are a bit thin but the clientele was a quiet orderly one. The breakfast of cold and hot cereal, juice, muffins, coffee, tea, hardboiled egg had more variety than one might expect. The staff were really courteous and helpful. Tommy's restaurant is just down the block. I was in and out visiting relatives and the location was very convenient for them.

It's a $53 a night hotel. Nothing remarkable either good or bad, just a place to stay that didn't break the bank.

Hotel staff adjusted their schedule so we could check in a hour early. The breakfeast was average, coffee was hot and fresh. Plenty of clean towels and the ease of paying on-line made check in/out a breeze. All in all we got more then we paid for.

we had a good stay it was clean staff was friendly
