“cave dwellers”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

We were very disappointed - first time staying with this chain of hotels. Very friendly receptionist and after that it went down hill. No internet working. Shutter to only window in room broken and closed shut. No electricity working in the bathroom. After 8pm when we discovered all of this and now the reception was closed. We renamed ourselves Fred and Wilma Flintstone to keep our spirits up and there was so little space remaining in the room that our dog had to chose sleeping under the work station or in the the shower!!! The room was clean and well done to the cleaners on how on earth they manage to do their job with no space to move around. Not an experience to be repeated.

Alright, you can't beat the price, but, you also get what you pay for. Very cost effective, right off the main highway, easy to find. 5 minute drive to Blois town center, where parking it 2 Euro for all day. They have free parking at the hotel. Across from strip mall restaurants and a moving theater (so not a lot to choose from). Small compact room. Bathroom is a cross between an airplane bathroom & trailer bathroom. Again, price is aggressive, so know what you are getting into. Front desk lady was extremely nice and helpful. They do not take AmEx.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same. Just ask for a top floor. Only two stories.

If you are looking for a good night sleep without paying a lot of money,this is the place for you.
Located a 5 minute drive out of Blois centre this is a great place to explore a wonderful region of France. Clean and comfortable ,no frills accomodation.Good off street parking,inexpensive breakfast and very friendly staff. Special mention to Stephanie at reception who was outstanding, warm , friendly and extremley helpful in steering us to the best places to visit.

Room Tip: Ask for first floor as noise from people walking above you is a little loud.

Of course, this is a hotel for motorized guests, only. Otherwise, it will take you ages to get there from the city center. The hotel is a typical quick-to-be-erected module building with external stairs leading directly to the rooms (no traditional internal floors). Indeed, the common space (the staircase area) could be cleaned more frequently; a thick layer of dust everywhere and spiderwebs do not necessarily add up to the hotel's charm...
The double room was quite all right. Not spacious, just as in all low-star and low-cost hotels, but there was some equivalent of a wardrobe (a place to hang your clothes) and even a small writing desk.
The room was equipped with a WC and shower (the latter being only moderately comfortable to use).
All in all - no luxury, but quite good for a price below 40 euro per night.

we just needed a very cheap place for the night with internet. we needed two rooms b/c of many children. don't expect anything and then you will get all the necessary basics and you will be good. the reception was very friendly and so was the lady at the breakfast service.
