I've stayed in the Hampton by Hilton in Stockton on Tees a couple of times, decent place, quite new, earns loyalty points, plenty of car parking if required.

Food isn't to great, but plenty of alternatives within a 5 minute walk, think I walked down to the local Wetherspoons one night, not haute cuisine of course but better than the hotel food and good value.

The locomotion Hotel in Yarn is cheap but comfortable. The food in the pub section was excellent.
