Travelodge Opens At Truck World
By Steve Pollock
HUBBARD, OH… The newly renovated Travelodge Hotel is now open at Truck World, I-80 Exit 234 in Hubbard, Ohio. Part of the Truck World Complex, the hotel has been owned and operated by Truck World for about 40 years and was recently re-branded to Travelodge, a member of the Wyndham family of hotels, which also includes Days Inn, Howard Johnson, Knights Inn, Super 8, Baymont and Ramada, just to name a few.
The new Travelodge honors the Wyndham Rewards Card accepted universally at all 6,500 Wyndham hotels. Along with the rebranding, the Travelodge Hotel was completely renovated. Rooms were stripped to the walls and all new fixtures, beds, carpet and furniture has been installed. Each room has a 42” flat screen TV with cable service. The bathrooms were gutted and completely redone with new appliances and even the windows were replaced. The lobby was rebuilt and now features a continental breakfast area. It’s a brand new room in a brand new Travelodge Hotel at Truck World. Since Truck World is all about Professional Truck Drivers and their trucks, you will receive a 25% discount with your CDL and a free continental breakfast from 6 am-10am daily. Single rooms feature a king size bed and double rooms have two queen-size beds. Longtime employee Mary Jane Charles manages the Travelodge Hotel at Truck World. Reservations are not necessary but are recommended. For reservations, call 330-534-8191.
