“Central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

Good location no hassle to park on the top of blois but not too far from anywhere and a pleasure to walk down admiring the views to the river the hotel is nice inside and the rooms were decent the hotel from outside looks rough and is not attractive at all but once inside its completely different the staff were also very nice

Newer rooms with nice bathrooms, and tvs. Free wifi. 90euro per night. Close to town. Nice staff. Free private off street parking. Close to great restaurants, and site seeing. East check in and out. I would stay here again.

Spent two separate nights in the Holiday Inn in Blois. I arrived with my son on a motorbike after the wettest ride of my life...we where cold, wet, hungry and tired. The staff where excellent, very helpful and spoke to us in English. They even helped us order take away! I was able to lock my bike in the private garden for added security too.

Comfy beds, warm rooms, excellent shower. Breakfast was superb. I'd stay here again without a doubt.

This Hotel is okay if you are on a business trip, but for vacationing not so good. It is over a half a mile away from the best parts of Blois and is at the top the hill, so if you do walk to the cool parts of Blois especially for dinner, walking back in not fun. Also, it does have air conditioning.. except not before May 1st, so our late April trip with a little heat wave the room was very uncomfortable. The restaurant was always empty, never a good sign. The pricing on room service is confusing.. and created a problem, the staff did take care of it.. but still a hassle is a hassle.

It is not very near the castle, but it is not very far away either. So, location is quite good, unless you don't like to walk or have some health problems,
I used to stay in thhis hotel in business like 13-15 years ago, and it was good to see that there was total redecoration and restyling of the hotel, both public areas and rooms. Our room was facing a courtyard, so no traffic noise. It was in fact very quiet, modern and comfortable. It is not luxurious, but still nice to come back after a day of sightseeing.
The breakfast was included in our rate and it was good in quality and variety (the muesli bread was very good!).
Friendly staff at the reception with a good advise for a place for buying macarons (Feuillete!). There is a laptop near the reception with free internet connection, which was convenient to check emails and the weather forecast for the next days.
There are complimentary car park, although not very big. One night it was full, and we let the car near that park (which is free during the night) and next morning we could find a place again in the hotel car park.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing te courtyard if you want to make sure that you can't hear traffic noise.

This is a reasonably priced international hotel catering (when we were there) for American tour parties and other group events. Our twin room was fine apart from no mirror in bedroom area, only in bathroom, so difficult to put on make-up when the glass was all steamed up! Tea, coffee and drinking chocolate on tray - unusual in continental hotels. Options for different types of pillows available.
The staff at reception were unfailingly pleasant and helpful, the hotel was clean and the rooms were fairly well insulated from noise. There's free parking in the hotel's own car park - a bonus in this town.
There's a restaurant but the choice of food was limited and very expensive for the area. Breakfast was reasonable with a good choice of cereals, cold meat, cheese, fruit and cooked food too. But it cost 16 euros which was pretty extortionate if you only want coffee and croissant!
Blois is built on the side of a steep hill leading down to the river and the hotel is near the top of the town. Climbing back up steep streets and stepped passageways kept us fit! Possibly not a good choice of location for anyone with difficulty in walking.

Having a car in a city can be a chanlensge, but this Holiday Inn had its own parking lot. Just drive into the alley way between the restaurant and the building next door. Parking is free.
The receptionist was very kind and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable with lots of pillows.
