Great value hotel in (practically) Versaille. It's a 10 minute drive (not really walkable but it could be done) to the Palace or the centre of town, where you can catch the train into the heart of Paris (25 mins) - Saint Cyr l'Ecole is a little hamlet on the oustskirts of Versailles and is really easy to get to from the ring road - we came up from the South and staying here meant we avoided the worst Paris roads and could get easily back on the motorway to continue up to Calais.
It's fair to say the hotel looks old and tired, and not very appealing from the outside, but inside is fine. Rooms were nice and clean, bathrooms good, staff extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast - not worth the money I'd say, there are better and cheaper options in Versailles.
It was hot when we visited and with no air con the windows had to be open, which meant the noisy restaurant/bar next door could be heard until 2 am! That's the only thing that would make me think twice about staying here again, but really for the price it would be hard to find a better deal in a better location.
Parking is free and on site but is limited, so may be a bit of a squeeze. Remember, Versailles Palace is closed on Monday, which means Tuesdays are extremely busy! At least staying here means you can be there for 8.30am to beat the queues, which is what we did. Oh, and book your tickets online (very important) - you can print them off for free on the computer in the hotel. WiFi is also free, but not very fast.
Overall, I'd recommend this budget hotel.
