    House keeping didn’t clean up room since I left for shopping from 12pm to 11.30pm despite I placed the notification for them to make up room and I have physically informed Front Office Staff to make up my room before I left for shopping but was Surprised to see no action has taken after I came back at 11.30pm, The hotel can only supply us with 2 New Towels at late night as the House keeping staff was not available at late night, Upon requested for an Explanation the next day upon Checking out and was Surprised the reason they gave was I have placed the noticed of “Do Not Disturb” instead of Requesting for “Make Up Room”, what a Lame Excuses they gave, on top of it, found Very Strong Cologne smell of their bedsheets.

    We checked-in into 2 rooms at Level 7, and the rooms were terrible. There are dust EVERYWHERE. It's not the usual home dust, it was those tiny wood particulars. There was even paint marks on the toilet tiles and walls. Toilet bowl was stained too and we have to flush several times top get rid of it. We feel that the front desk staff should tell us if there is no connecting rooms available, instead of allocating these 2 rooms which were clearly not ready for guest stay. We requested to change room which the front desk staff mentioned there will only be rooms available the next day 10am. We changed our itinerary the next day, as we needed more time to do the room change. But at 10am when we approached the front desk, they told us there is no room available! So we have to explain what happened the previous night, and waited for another 15mins before we finally got our room changed. We had 2 rooms at Level 6 & Level 8 each. The room at Level 6 was fine, but the room at Level 8 was not any better. We believed renovation is still ongoing at Level 7 and 8, and that the hotel opened the rooms to us when there is not enough rooms. Also, there was no aircon at the common area of Level 7 & 8 too. I was recovering from sensitive nose before i checked-in, but the dust aggravated my condition. My sis who was completely fine fell sick at the end of the stay too. Service from the staff was good, but the facilities are really horrendous. Will never go back to Travelodge.

    The overall design of the building and room arrangement is fine, the colouring of the lobby is a darker mood, if there are more lighting or bringing in fresh light to make it brighter would create a new impression, provide more spaces in the hotel lobby would be better.

    While it's location is a plus point especially for foodies, as well as the very attentive & friendly staff, improvements very much needed in maintence & housekeeping. Disappointing that a hotel with 3-star rating, provided bedsheet & pillow cases, towels & bathmats that had stains or frayed edges. Even the brims of the 2 mugs were coated with dust when i first checked into the room. Had to wipe off dust from table tops etc too. Although most guests will be out in the day, we would like to return to a clean, dust-free & cosy room. Nevertheless, i noticed that everyone is making an effort. So, do continue to strive for excellence in service!
