Auberge Saint Pierre
Ranked #5 of 16 Hotels in Mont-Saint-Michel
Reviewed 2 August 2013

We stayed at the Auberge Saint-Pierre for one night. The room was very comfortable . Negatives -- There is no air conditioning . We opened the window but there were no bars on the window to keep anyone from coming in through the window. This really bothered me. And you here all the people walking around at night. I would only do a day trip here to visit the Abby . It was beautiful.
The food was ok .

Room Tip: If you stay for 1 night only bring a small suitcase since you haul your on luggage form the mainland...

We stayed a night on the rock on Mont St michel and it was definitely worth it, particularly at this hotel. First, dont expect getting on the Mont will be fun or easy. Youwill need to be in shape to enjoy this. You have to park way out (it would be nice if they mard the lots so you could find the hotel reserved lot) and then catch the bus, which does drop you off quite far from the gate. We were prepared for this, after reading prior reviews, and packed light overnight bags. Second, the place was really, really crowded and you did have to hike up the hill. We got to the hotel reception, you have to look for it, and we went further up the hill, with a guide, to our cottage. This was fine since it got you out of the crowds and got a better view. Unlike ealrier reviews that had me nervous, the staff was very helpful and prompt, possibly because there were not any people in front of us but they were very nice and helpful. The cottage room was not large, but was very nice, had a great view, and I did not think it was terribly expensive considering they had you hostage on the Mont. The really special time came as it got later and the people started leaving the island. Visiting the abbey around sunset was spectacular. we also ate looking over the tide and watched it rush in, which should not be missed. Overall, despite the huge number of people, this was a unique experience and staying on the Mont was what made it special, since we were able to see the tides, the abbey, the full moon (a highly unexpected bonus and worth looking into since it also gave us huge tides) pretty much on our own. The hotel was a very nice part of the experience and we did not get much morning noise as we were up the hill. One aside, it is a small town so you can see other rooms all around you and we had a light facing our room that was on until about midnight, which wasnt that big adeal since we had stayed up exploring the Mont. Well worth it and a really nice hotel.

Room Tip: the hillside cottages were an extra hike, but worth it.

The hotel room was fine, bigger than I expected based on some of the reviews. Everything seemed fine (except having to lug my luggage 1/4 of the causeway since the buses don't drop you off at the gate to the Mont). My wife fell asleep just fine, but then, at 4:30 AM "BEEP BEEP BEEP", "CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK", "RANDOM FRENCH WORDS". It seemed like the entire village's employees were awake and making as much noise as they possibly could.

I know you might say, "well just close the windows". Well, there is a delima. There is no Air Conditioning, so you will swelter in the heat if you close the windows. Well the noise was so bad, we were willing to die of heat-stroke, so we closed the windows. The noise was almost as loud with the windows shut as it was when they were open. So now we were hot and wide awake at about 5 AM. We decided to just get up. We were out the door at 6 AM, but the town really doesn't open until 11AM, so by about 9 AM, we were so miserable, we just gave up and went back to Paris.

The front desk lady that checked us in was sweet and nice, but wasn't there the next day so we checked out with the cleaning lady.

MSM is beautiful! I really recommend it, but only as a day trip. The Mont is so small you can see the whole thing in about 1/2 day (or less). If you must spend the night, I implore you, do not stay on the Mont (stay outside the causeway). It wouldn't have mattered which hotel we were at, the noise would have woken us anyway. Oh restaurant selection, quality, and service was as poor as you can possibly get on the Mont. Had a lovely breakfast at a place off the Mont named Pre Sale the next day.

Oh another tip: there is at least 1 week out of every month where the tide doesn't come in at all. So check the tide schedules on the official MSM tourism site before you plan your trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the village. You'll still hear the noise, but might not be...

Staying on the island the evening before we explored the abbey was worth every penny - and all the Ramen noodles we are eating now. :) The key is to be prepared for what the stay entails. We knew that the visit would be expensive, starting with the parking. Having factored that into our budget, we were not surprised. In June, the bus dropped us off just before the end of the causeway. Current construction of a new, environmentally-friendly bridge* prohibits buses from getting any closer. We stayed in the auxiliary building, knowing full well from previous reviews that accessing our rooms would mean lots of stairs. We had a rental car, so we packed backpacks for our one night and left the heavy luggage in the car. As a result, our walk up the stairs was not as strenuous as that of other reviewers. Mathilde, who checked us in, was delightful. She was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We stayed during a rainy spell which cooled the entire area. We were able to leave the windows closed and remain quite comfortable. Had we stayed during a warmer time, we would have been comfortable temperature wise with the windows open. However, as previous reviews have noted, the noise from the avian wildlife would have interfered with the slumber of a light sleeper like me. I think this is one of those "it's all part of the experience" moments in life. :) We had expected garret sized rooms based on reviews we had read. We found our room perfectly well sized by European standards, especially given the location in a converted medieval town building. Our room was luxurious with an efficiently designed yet comfortable bathroom. The fixtures are all modern and of high quality. The bed and linens are excellent. We had no problems connecting to the internet. Our room did not have a view. Instead, it came with an unexpected treat: a private patio with a table, chairs, and roses. We did buy breakfast the next morning. It was expensive but generous. If we had it to do again, we would buy cheese, fruit, and tea to eat in our room. In the morning, the hotel staff kept our bags in a locked room for us, so we could explore the island all day. [* We recommend getting off and back on the bus at the new dam. The view is spectacular and the information about how the dam and the new bridge will allow the environment to recover from the damage done by the causeway is interesting.]

parking: it's a total mess, a big problem for Mt St Michel. When I wrote this it was 12 euros for the privilege of taking a bus ride that dropped you off a 3rd of a mile from the Mt itself and where your room actually is.
It's not the hotel's fault, everyone is suffering on the island as a result, and as pissed as I am at the incompetent vultures that are running the bridge/bus/parking mafia, the room higher up with view of the ocean, city walls, and more, was nice and with modern amenities for an old island

AC: you open the window and close it before the seagulls wake up :)
Noise: it was quiet
bed: good
internet: wifi worked, but it had an annoying signup procedure for each device you wanted to use.
staff: they were super nice and helpful. They kept some of our luggage lower down and helped us carry our heavy luggage to our room
location: great views, but unhappy walk from the bus and up the stairs if you have heavy luggage (you can stay lower down without the views, but fewer stairs).

So, it's not cheap to stay on Mt Saint Michel, but it was very cool to walk back to our room at night and enjoy night views from our window, as well as be right there the next morning before the crowds showed up.

Room Tip: The higher up rooms take more walking, but you get a great view

We stayed in the main building. Our room was very small, but we expected that, given the location. It was quite nicely decorated and very nice. We enjoyed staying on the island. It was peaceful walking around after the day visitors had left and watching the darkness settle over the abbey. Our room was very quiet and we got a great night's sleep. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We chose to stay on the island in the hopes that it would be peaceful after the day-tourists left. Unfortunately, the noise continued unabated. But we could not close the windows because we would have suffocated. Our room was just adequate. The hotel staff were not welcoming and not helpful. (Example - the info sheet in the room says the staff will book tours for you. When I went to the reception, they directed me to the tourist office.)

Room Tip: If you want to sleep, don't stay on the island.
