Travelodge London Docklands
The Travelodge Docklands is a three-star budget property off East India Dock Road on the east end of London. It's just a short walk to the East India DLR station or the 277 bus route to Canary Wharf and other nearby attractions. You won't be in the center of the city's hustle and bustle here. In fact, you're about 20 minutes from the heart of London, but that's part of the appeal. Being outside the congestion zone means cheap or free parking and low hotel rates.
If the O2 entertainment complex is part of your itinerary, the Travelodge is as convenient as it gets. The O2 is just across the Thames and accessible by cable car, by car via the Blackwall Tunnel, or by public transport--just hop off at North Greenwich station. Several reviews say this is the cheapest and most convenient hotel for a quick overnight after a show. The hotel is also near Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Visitors praise the clean, spacious rooms and budget-friendly prices. Bathrooms don't come with many toiletries, so be sure to pack your own hair and skin care products. Guests say that the hotel restaurant is a decent option for an occasional meal, but also lament the lack of available eateries within walking distance. The hot buffet breakfast is a great deal for adults and even better for families, as kids eat free. The Travelodge is near Billingsgate Market, which provides additional tasty meal choices.
Light sleepers might want to ask for a room overlooking the car park, as several reviewers mention noise from the busy A13 road nearby.
If you're looking for an ultra-affordable, no-frills stay outside central London or a place to crash after a night of music and entertainment, the Travelodge Docklands will give you what you are looking for.

London certainly put on amazing weather for our first full day of sightseeing. After an early wakeup (3.30am, clearly not on UK time yet), I was dressed and ready to head out by 8am. Gary and I wandered in the general direction of The Strand, detouring down wonderful alleys and laneways, loving the London architecture. We decided to catch the hop on hop off tourist bus which took us past places such as London Bridge, Big Ben, Tower of London, Picadilly Circus, ...
... of grey and a deflated Winston. It was all played against a background of extremely loud noises, gunfire, helicopters, electronic buzzing… designed to shock, and shock it did. However that was nothing compared with what was to come.
Room 101 was suitably horrifying. The set was just plain white curtains on three sides, but the real menace was in the nameless faceless torturers and the calmly menacing O’Brien. As the ...
The following is a mostly a work log. Unfortunately, it doesn't include all the other various insights and social aspects of working at the AIRE Centre. My time at the AIRE Centre was wonderful, and I wholeheartedly wish I could have remained there to work longer. It is a friendly and professional group of people who generate a collaborative and educational atmosphere. I hope to remain in touch with my supervisors Audrey and Markella, both of whom are supremely talented and ...
... we stopped and stared. It looked just like one would expect a two lane street crosswalk to look. Large chunky white hash marks indicating where a pedestrian should cross. Except this one was crossed and photographed by the Beatles. The fact that it happened over 40 years ago didn't seem to make it any less impressive,as we weren't the only ones there to witness the seemingly ordinary crosswalk. After taking in as much as one ...
... but it wasn't until we got to the hotel that we were told we would have to stay another night. To make things easier they told us to pay for everything and they would reimburse us fully for all food and transportation. If they follow through with that promise, we will definitely give them a 5 star review!
So there we were with a completely unplanned for day in London, England. I can't say we were too terribly upset about it, especially since ...
