Stayed at the Travelodge Oshawa-Whitby for the weekend recently for a sporting event. Don't take what is available on the web at face value when booking .... call the reservation centre (or better yet, the hotel directly) to find out what rooms are really available.
Booked a queen bed and pull out couch. Bedding for pull out was in the top of the closet. Room was clean and in good repair. Bed was soft and comfortable with plenty of pillows. Flat screen TV, microwave and minifridge. Liquid hand soap in bathroom -- such a small thing but I LOVE this as I hate bar soap -- and a decent amount of towels, etc. Water pressure and temperature was good.
Had to print out some paperwork late one evening and used the small business centre adjacent to the lobby. There are two computers and two printers, paper was already laying out etc. Worked great. WiFi is also free and strength in our third floor room was acceptable.
Breakfast is adequate .... hard boiled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, waffles, bagels, juice, etc. No complaints there. I didn't use the pool but others in my party did and the kids seemed to enjoy it. It is salt water.
This hotel seems to actually "get it" when it comes to noise. A hockey team checking in had to sign a contract agreeing that if noise complaints were received about them, they would be charged a $100 fine per room. Subsequently the hotel was fairly quiet. On Friday night there were some loud folks walking up and down the hall (in all fairness, they were probably speaking a normal level but doors are very thin) but all quieted down by midnight. On Saturday night I didn't hear a peep.
The only noise I would question ... I think there must be some sort of a nightclub nearby as both nights the music was quite loud and the bass could be heard in our room. We turned on the wall-mounted heating/AC unit and the fan masked the sound of the bass.
There are plenty of shopping and dining options nearby, including the Oshawa Centre Mall.
Overall, we were pleased with our stay and would select this hotel if staying in the area again. It is about a 10 minute drive from Durham College.
