Holiday Inn's in France are becoming more common place and while not as cheap as F1 Etap and Novatel they are better. As good as the Mercure and with a fantastic loyalty programme. This one was exceptionally good value just 10,000 points and its in the center of town a short walk the the Chateau
Good value, clean and teh room was not that small considering.

Good location, easy to park. I was lucky for my 7 nights stay, always had a spot to park.
Air conditioning noisy but worked properly. Rooms are clean and service is impeccable
My room was adjacent to the courtyard, so very quiet. Room was quite large compared to hotels in general in France.
Did not use the restaurant. Had breakfast in a cafe nearby for a more decent price.
Overall, I had what I expected and very happy with this hotel..

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are quieter.

The holiday inn in blois was a disappointment for two reasons. The rooms are fine. Their is nice garden out back. It is reasonably located (not the best, but still within walking distance of what you want to see). The associated restaurant is ok for breakfast, but too be avoided for anything else. The main complaint we had, staying there in early august, was the air conditioning. It was basically broken. So, the rooms were warm and stuffy. They realized that it is a problem and claim it will be fixed next year. Check before you decide to stay.

Stayed for 1 night as a stop over from the South of France -hadn't booked any where in Blois but this hotel was easy to find and best of all had parking which a few of the town centre hotels didn't. We wanted to stay in the town so we could walk out for dinner in the evening.
The hotel was clean and tidy and the rooms of good quality but it was as you would expect from a Holiday Inn no matter where you were in the world. Nothing spectacular. Breakfast very expensive so we didn't bother.

Room Tip: Try not to get one that overlooks the car park - it was very noisy.

We have stayed here twice now and have found the location to be excellent , the staff friendly and helpful.
The hotel itself is clean and the rooms whilst not lavishly decorated are perfectably acceptable.
Dinner in the hotel resteraunt was made using high quality ingredients and a welcome treat after a long journey.
I have knocked one point of for the following reasons, the air con needs attention in both the rooms we stayed in it was rather ineffective, some litte touches like bottled water and a slightly more expansive room service menu would really inhance the experience, other than these small issues it is rather good!

Frequently driving long distance by car one needs reasonable place to stay overnight. We have been for the first time in this hotel. Staff at reception was quick and rooms are adequate for this type of hotel. Parking is available around the corner. If on this tour again, we will stay there once more.

The hotel is quite nice in cleanliness and space for a FRENCH HOTEL which generally have small rooms in this price range. The location does require a fair walk to the chateau and coming back is all uphill. The parking lot was NOT secure as advertised and is smaller than needed for the size of the hotel; There is a public parking lot next to it so you should always find a place to park; As a priority club member we were given coupons for free drinks at the bar. On the second day we had to ask the desk clerk to find a bar man as there was never one at the bar. He worked as a waiter and worked the bar so they had to find him in the kitchen. There was no soap in the shower but some by the sink, they should check on this. The AC did not work and it did not get fixed while we were there, but fortunately the weather was cool enough that an open window did the trick.The front desk person was very sweet but did not seem to be able to get anything done, nice hotel but could improve.
The hotel prides itself on its pillows, could use a little more attention to the mattresses.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are quiet but no view. Other rooms may see the river but not that great a river to b...
