Coffee maker in room didn't work. Dirty. Booked queen beds but given doubles. Old pair of underwear in one of the drawers. Cardboard box would've been better. Never again. Should be torn down and burned.
Was in town for work and thought I would stay someplace different. Hotel was very accommodating setting me up with a room and upgrading my reservation to a suite as they were having issues with housekeeping. My thanks to Laney@ Reception for helping out and taking the time to check on rooms and get me set up. Had a nice two bedroom suite on the ground floor of the two story motel complex, adjacent to the main hotel. Courtyard of the motel was sort of funky looking and had good parking, which was nice as I had a full size truck. Across the street from the motel was a 24 hour fitness center which was really nice and convenient. Right across the street from the hotel is the Allen Sapp & Chapel Art Galleries, which I was soooo disappointed I didn't have time to check out. :( Plus, you have a great view of the river valley and Battleford across the river if you're in one of the higher hotel rooms. That's pretty cool. And the location of the hotel at the foot of the main street allows for a short walking distance to any of the downtown stores. The big problem is that you don't feel very safe around the hotel & motel due to the high number of transient people walking in and out and all around, wandering in and asking for the weirdest things. Laney took me from the main hotel, over to the motel and had to roust 3 transients who were lounging on the steps of the walkway through the motel. I felt really bad that staff and the Travel Lodge had to deal with this regularly, running off drunks and drug users who would try and loiter on the hotel grounds. Having to walk through a cloud of pot smoke from the Indians on the steps was a bit of a surreal experience. The hotel room I had was very clean, with sort of an odd lay out, but would work very nicely for a family travelling, with two bedrooms, a kitchenette and TV's in each room. Or if you were a working crew and sharing accommodations on the road, this would work really good for two guys, with lots of room to park a full size crew truck in the lot outside. Having the little sink and counter for making food was very handy. Even though there was the drunks, druggies and flakes outside, it was explained to me that they had security cameras around the complex and the locals know it, so there wouldn't be any problems. I had equipment in my truck that was still there the next day, so I can't disagree. It's a tough hotel and I feel bad for the staff and owners. Basically need the cops to run the vagrants off and Travel Lodge to spend some money to update. If you're on a crew or a hardened traveller, this hotel is that you can make due with. Or if you're looking for an "authentic experience", you will definitely get a road story out of this hotel. But don't book a room for Grandma or the little kids here. The feeling of safety is less then can be expected and that's through no fault of Travel Lodge or its staff. The service was great, check out was fast and efficient, room was good. Main issue was the loiterers.
I would never return to this property. The highlight of this hotel was the check in process. I had a non-smoking room that smelled of smoke and made me The end tables had been moved out of place and not put back. I ended up moving them because I couldn't get ahold of anyone. The bathroom had holes in the door that had been covered with pieces of wood and painted. The bathtub looked like it had been poorly painted over. The breakfast had sausages that smelled sour. The milk was sour and there was half a cup of juice. When I asked the woman at the checkout she said she had bought milk yesterday. Checking out I was ignored, then when I got her attention and asked for my printout, she reluctantly got up. I went to get ice and when I came back she was sitting again. I asked for my invoice and she didn't bother to get up, just pointed. There were sheets on the counter that were for employee time sheets. I was horrified something like that was in sight of strangers. Even the trolley didn't work. The young fellow that was there helped me to get it to my car, but said it was always bad and that he had trouble getting it to work. I travelled for a month by car, this was by far the worst place I stayed. I stayed in low cost places, but they had better service, they were clean and did not smell of smoke. My advice avoid this place at all costs
Very small and crowded rooms. The elevator is very old and slow, the elevator door opens before it is level with the floor so is very scary as you are not sure if it will stop properly. I had booked a smoking room online and when I checked in was told they no longer have smoking rooms. I stayed the one night and then cancelled the other two nights.
We moved from a different hotel due to wifi problems. The only initial problem we had at travelodge was the first rooms air conditioning did not work but we were moved to another room.
I usually make the reservations, always do research and read reviews. My boyfriend did it on booking.com and never reads reviews, has stayed at many Travelodges', and there has never been anything like this place. He went to check in, building looks old; odd parking; located across from train tracks. Upon opening the front door a horrible smell did not welcome my nose, elevator was scary, did not work the best. When entering the room we noticed the broken handled window was wide open(+28c outside) the curtains were mostly sagging due to being off the hooks exposing the room to full sunshine glaring straight in and reflecting off the tar papered roof which was covered with dead moths. The air conditioning did not work, small cramped bathroom with 1 or 2 stray hairs in the tub, stained walls and ceilings. Had the door open for a period to try get some air flow, and even after spraying glade could not stand that horrible smell that lingered in the old dilapidation that surrounded us. The pool hot tub area should be shut down, needs attention badly, rust pieces falling into the hot tub from stairs above. In the morning went and had a look at the offering of free breakfast: cereals, bread/bagels, pancake mixes, eggs, microwaveable eggs and sausages... Made a red rose tea, and even that tasted horrible, probably due to the already bad taste in my psyche about the whole stay! My boyfriend left a review on booking.com and sent an email to them after reading many more similar reviews, why they would even offer such a bad choice is very disappointing. The best thing about it all was the 2 for 1 pizza we had delivered from Family Pizza. Do not stay at the Travelodge in North Battleford!!
The elevator in the main building (what else is new for a Travelodge) was out of service so they put me in their motel across the street. Besides having to go a block to get my free breakfast, the area doesn't feel safe when walking alone in the wee hours of the morning. The lobby is quite dated. The "breakfast" is sad - not serviced regularly (had to ask for milk). Staff liked to chit chat with each other instead of serving customers. Coffee pot in room broken. And as with all Travelodge facilities - please add more plugs!
I've recently driven down 5 hours for my grandfathers funeral here in North Battleford. My mother and younger sister had a two queen room at the Travelodge for 3 nights. The front desk associate was kind enough to move them rooms because of their distaste to the first. They were downsized to a two double bed room, they alerted the guest services woman on Tuesday evening that I would be also arriving shortly and she said it was okay. When I had arrived, we had decided to watch tv and use the microwave. Problems have risen since then. The microwave over heated and wouldn't cook for longer than 5 minutes(microwave meals), the batteries in the remote were corroded and didn't work. We opened the drawer to find a bible with a wad of hair in the middle of it(has not been removed/cleaned during entire stay). Housekeeping didn't bother coming by on Thursday, when she had she did not bother to take down the towels we had put on the bathroom floor as signs directed. There was no "full service" as promised. Wednesday evening, my sisters wanted to go swimming, we called twice to ask them to turn on the water slide.. and at this point they were scolded by the red haired woman when they went to the front desk and were told that by the front desk associate she doesn't know what she's doing and she's only part time. She even went to say maintenance was being done to it.. Eventually she did turn it on after 45 minutes. We did use it Tuesday night and this wasn't an issue at the time, understandably we can assume there was possible 'maintenance' being done at 9pm Wednesday night. But don't count on anyone knowing what to do when they're asked about their hotel amenities. By Thursday we had already been given so much grief by 90% of the front desk staff, most of which were too lazy to go to the second floor(elevator was also broken) for assistance so don't count on getting proper help. On another level itself, breakfast wasn't bad, but it also wasn't great by any means. The waffle mix was out and we're told since there was only 20 minutes left one morning they wouldn't make more, okay that's fine. Now the pancake mix was also out and I watched 'Leanne' make another bag and forcibly ruin the mix by not making it properly. We gave up and decided on just whatever waffle mix was left, which was a bad idea. The waffles were sour, you can tell the mix is old. It had been noticeably expired. Stick to cereal if you don't want to feel ill. Tables won't be wiped, kitchen won't be tended to so I'd recommend taking breakfast to your room. I mentioned earlier, we were here for a wake and a funeral, we've travelled 7 hours total to be together(not often). We were far from comfortable. Don't count on any hot water either, you'll be waiting all night. Fortunately for my mother, she had assistance getting this hotel since she doesn't live nearby or have access to a vehicle. I had made sure she had a way here to North Battleford and ways to get to and from the hall and church. We decided on this hotel when we searched and regret it deeply during such a hard time. Please do not stay here, it will not be a comfortable stay. Now here's my problem.. I work proudly in a Wyndham Hotel, I know brand standards and I also know what customer service looks like. This hotel is the opposite of each regulatory standard set by Wyndham. It's upsetting to say the least, there was problem after problem with no end.
This was a family trip and the kids were looking forward to water slides, however their pool and water slides were not in service, would be nice to get a call ahead of time. The elevator was not in service and had to walk up two flights of stairs with kids in tow to get to our room. Very dirty room, carpet was lifting off the side boards, blankets had burn holes, bathroom was disgusting. Continental breakfast was horrible, my son had a waffle and even he did not like it, muffins tasted freezer burnt and bagels were very stale. Will not stay here again, even if I had a good rate. Only positive was that the staff were friendly.
Very old and outdated hotel. I got there mid-evening and there was no front desk attendant to greet me. I waited for over 5 minutes listening to a profanity-laced discussion between 2 staff members (1 of them was the clerk who eventually waited on me.)
