Travelodge Overview

The second-largest budget hotel chain in the UK and arguably the cheapest, Travelodge is a household name across the country and is the first option for many of us when booking a trip away and in need of a cheap hotel. Be it a city break, a flying festival visit or an airport stay, whatever the occasion, there’s room for you. Actually, there are, 32,600 of them to be exact!

Travelodge rooms are broadly the same in all locations, so you know what you’re getting before you arrive, which can take the hassle and stress out of staying somewhere new. You know you will get a simple and comfortable room and the mattresses are always very comfortable. Their hotels are split between city-centre locations and roadside facilities for travellers, with new hotels opening all the time. There is very likely one in or near your university town or city so it’s perfect for parents or friends coming to visit when there is no room at your shared house!

The rooms in Travelodge hotels across the UK and Ireland span single rooms, doubles, triples and family rooms with a pull-out sofa and the budget-happy firm charge by the room, rather than by person, so you can find a great value room even if you really are packing a few of you in! All rooms have an en-suite bathroom, tea and coffee making facilities, a TV and extra bedding and blankets as standard, standard cosy duvet with four plump pillows, so there’s no need for awkward hostel-style bathroom sharing and no need to constantly walk down to reception to make requests. A great plus in our book.

They’re already a budget brand, but even better: Travelodge regularly have flash sales, Travelodge deals and discounts to offer up advance room bookings from just £19 a night. Now there’s a true bargain no one can quibble with! It’s always worth booking your stay in advance on the Travelodge website, as there are different levels of booking available based on the time period before the stay (the earlier, the cheaper as a general rule) and the flexibility required. You can pay a little extra to ensure your booking can be cancelled, amended or refunded, or opt for a non-flexible fare for a much cheaper stay if you know you’re definitely going to be staying on that date in that hotel.

As with most budget travel brands, Travelodge booking prices do fluctuate based on demand – although in this case of course, once the rooms are gone, they’re gone. Make sure if you’re attending a local event or occasion that you book as early as you can to avoid disappointment and potential price hikes – due to demand.

If you’re a pet lover, most Travelodge hotels will accommodate your furry friends too for a fee. Contact the hotel before you travel and of course, if you have a service or support dog, there will be no extra charge. You should also be able to use student discount travel lodge when taking pets as well.

Most hotels also have bar and restaurant facilities and a 24/7 reception service should you need assistance or late check-in/check-out. The Travelodge student discount is one of the most popular on the market for hotel bookings.

History of the Travelodge Company

Travelodge was initially an American brand (we never knew that) and was brought over to the UK in the 1980s, originally as additions to Little Chef restaurants known as ‘Little Lodges’. The first Travelodge hotel opened in 1985 along the A38 road at Barton-Under-Needwood. Since then, it’s been owned by a few different hotel and hospitality groups including Compass and Forte. Now, however, Travelodge stands as a subsidiary company of Dubai International Capital (DIC) and has bought up previous hotels managed by other, smaller businesses.

In 2007, Travelodge made media headlines around the world when it came to light that two of their most loyal customers, David and Jean Davidson, a retired couple from Sheffield, had been taking advantage of their advance booking discounts and living in their hotels for a combined total of 22 years. Splitting their stay between the Newark, Worksop and Grantham hotels, the couple admitted to the press that they found it easier and cheaper to live in Travelodge hotels than in a property they owned or rented. Since then, each of the hotels has named one of their rooms ‘The Davidson Suite’ in honour of the pair!
