The UK's Travelodge Chain Holds It Biggest Sale of the Year Tomorrow

(Photo by Karen Bryant)
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, there are few chain hotels that can the British Isles version of Travelodge's combination of comfort and cost. Its rooms are spotlessly kept, cheery (in an Ikea type of way) and most offer a couch that can transform at the pull of a sheet into two highly sleepable twin-size beds. Which means that a family of four can stay for the same cost as a couple--a rarity in Europe. With these pluses I'd say its not too much of a minus that most Travelodges are located right off highways, rather than in the centers of towns (the Edinburgh Travelodge is one exception, and a TERRIFIC place to stay relatively inexpensively if you want to be in town for the famed Edinburgh Festival.)

Onto costs: they're usually extremely reasonable. And during their sales, rooms here become downright steals. Happily, tomorrow Travelodge is holding its biggest sale of the year, putting properties across the British Isles and Spain for as little as 9 British pounds per night. Rates of 25 pounds or less will apply to no less than 1,000,000 rooms for all of 2011.

As with most of these promos, the deals are first-come, first-served, so I'd suggest waking up a few hours early tomorrow, or those across the pond may snatch up the deals first. You'll also be competing with me, as I need cheap lodgings for the Wales wedding of a cousin. (You've been warned!).
