Our experience differed in some details but the other recent English-language reviews a lot of the story. We stayed here for one night after arriving at Pescara airport very late. We were making our way south for vacation but did not want to drive much the first night. Booked this place on Expedia after seeing it was only about 45 minutes from the airport and its being the only 4 star property in the area. Upon arrival it just seemed strange. It’s motel-looking, but resort town motel, not highway motel. Tiny gated motor court, fake flowers and champagne at the entrance. Overall weird and extremely dated--circa 1960s. That said the staff was pleasant & welcoming and the restaurant was still open (though we were advised to hurry).
Our decently-for-southern Europe-sized room had a window that looked into what seemed to be a tiny former atrium with old baby cribs and cots in it. It was actually quite creepy and looked like a secret , forgotten orphanage. The beds were flat and uncomfortable, but overall everything seemed reasonably clean considering the age and wear-level of the property.
Dinner was a pleasant surprise. Having spotted the nicely stocked bar in the lobby, we started with more-than serviceable cocktails and then treated ourselves to an honest and well-prepared local meal in the house restaurant. The service and the small wine list had similar sensibilities and overall it was an enjoyable welcome. Breakfast was also decent and as much freshly squeezed OJ as you would like. Many locals frequented this restaurant by the way.
