Great location, if you want to stay in the Castle, but you really don't need to. Rick Steve's says the "Castle comes alive at night". Don't know what that means since the place pretty much shuts down around 9PM. The hotel is located right on the castle grounds but definitely not worth the money. First off, it cost 8Euro just to park you car in the lot, Then you walk about a mile (not exaggeration) to the shuttle. If you are staying in the hotel, you need to bring all of your luggage since the parking lot is not secure. So,you are carrying all of your luggage a mile. Then the shuttle barely takes you to the castle. It drops you off about 200 yards from the main castle gate (then you walk up through the castle with all the tourist to get around). There is another shuttle that cost around 9Euro that takes you from the parking lot all the way to the castle door (DO THIS. It's worth your money even though the hotel should cover this cost for guest). You do NOT get that part of your hotel stay and the hotel does not let you know about the hike from the lot to the (worthless) shuttle.

Once we got to the hotel, you got to the bar/restaurant and told them we are here to check in. They called over to the person to check us in to come over to the hotel. It took here 15 minutes to come over (we found it it is all of 10 feet away next door). The rooms are not cheap and they are TINY. You can't really turn around in the shower it's so tiny (and we're not big).

Basically, it's a hassle if you want to stay here or on the castle property. I would tell anyone to go see the castle, tour, and then stay off property. It's a beautiful castle and impressive, you just don't need to stay in a tiny room for top dollar. tourist trap.

Room Tip: Stay in a hotel that is off property. There are a few hotels that are near the parking lot (where the shuttle actually picks you up at) and there are stores, markets, and restaurants there.

We decided to spend the night at Saint Michel. According to the home page of Saint Michel, this is one of the few decent hotels within the castle walls.
100€ for a night - offseason. Not to bad, at least if you look at the price of food and entrence fee´s to the museums.

The hotel building is over 5 levels, where the first is a bar/restaurant, second is rooms, 3rd is a new restaurant, 4th and 5th are rooms. We got a small, warm and charming room facing the Abbey (room 505). The room comes with a water boiler, so you can make yourself some tea or coffee.. The bathroom and shower is nice enough.
You can connect to the WIFI. You would have to crate a user profile, but that will only take you a minute or two.

I was under the understanding that hotel-guests would get free parking, but I misunderstood, we just get to park at a different parking space then the day-trip visitors, and you get a small bus just for people spending the night.. This bus will drive you like 100 - 200 meter closer (stops right outside the walls). We payed 8.5€ when we left.

The hotel got a joined venture, or a cooperation with the neighbours, so when you check-in you actually have to enter the hotel right next to it, and go up a small stairway to find the reception. Service was good, and when we checked out, we could leave our bags in a locked room for as long as we wanted so there is no need to go back to your car to drop your bags if you want to spend some extra time looking at Saint Michel the day you leave.

Some folks still question the value of staying overnight on the island but we loved it. We spent the day travelling from Paris to MSM and then viewing the cathedral. We had dinner and then took a stroll around the streets which were pretty much empty by 5pm, and the atmosphere was great.

We visited in what must have been high season and it was quite pricey for our room - 150 euros. The room didn't have any air conditioning but with the windows open it was a nice enough sleep.

Most of the hotel rooms are a couple of levels above cafes and restaurants and the stairs are narrow so if you are travelling here, make sure you are travelling light!

We asked for a room that had a view of the chapel and it was amazing. If I were to visit MSM again, I would stay again.

Room Tip: Someone else on trip advisor recommended foregoing a room with a sea view and getting one with a cathedral view. We did just that and couldn't agree more!

First, remember where you are and do not expect spacious luxury. The rooms were sufficient for our overnight stay. All we did is sleep there and comfortably at that. The rooms were modern and very clean. Yes, a little noisy in the morning as were over the main drag. However, the view was incredible. we were there for the last night of NIGHT-TIME TOUR OF THE ABBEY : CHANTS D’OMBRES A LA MERVEILLE. I did not mind the new parking. It was very convenient and the buses were prompt. Waking up to a high tide and the entrance under water was exciting to think about how it used to be. We had sandwiches for dinner and the breakfast buffet. No complaints. Of course, everything here was pricey, it is Mont St. Michel.

We knew that staying on the Mont St Michel would not come cheap since there are not many options and many tourists like the convenience. However, while the room was fine and the location good, I still think it was overpriced and their restaurant was horrible!

The first disapointment was that we had initially made our reservation for their sister hotel - Auberge St Pierre (better reviews on Tripadvisor and less expensive). We thought the reservation was set but a day later received an email that in fact the room was not available and they were booked. They offered us a room at their sister hotel - Croix Blanche. It was more expensive (almost $100 more) but at that point we didn't have many other options and our son was really excited about staying overnight at the Mont so we agreed. Not sure if it was a bait-and-switch but if it was we were duped.

The staff are nice and the room itself was well apointed, clean, and with a decent view (if you ignored the construction equipment) but small (but that's to be expected). Not sure it was worth over $300 for one night (more expensive than a glorious chateau we stayed at two nights before less than 30min away from the Mont that also included breakfast!)

Their restaurant, which is one of only a handful that remain open after 6pm was horrible. I don't think we've ever had a worse meal anywhere. And it cost us $100 for 2 adults and 1 child. Unfortunately, this is the case at most restaurants on the Mont St Michel. They don't try very hard and charge a lot because there will always be tourists...a sad state of affairs but the reality. Their breakfast was ridiculously expensive so we ate at a little bistro/bar along the same Grande Rue that was more reasonably priced and offered the same thing (typical french breakfast of juice, coffee/tea, and pastries).

If you can, do not eat at the Mont. There are a couple of good ones just outside the Mont (by the parking lots) that are much better and worth the price. Also, given all the changes at the Mont and the fact that you can visit the island at almost any time regardless of whether you stay at a hotel in the Mont, you are probably better served staying elsewhere for less money.

That being said, there is a huge advantage being there after the crowds leave (around 5pm) and before they arrive (around 10/11am). So either stay on the Mont for one night, enjoy the evening and morning, then leave and have lunch elsewhere. Or stay somewhere closeby and visit around the same times to avoid the tourist crowds. Last tip: check the tides calendar to make sure your visit coincides with the rise of the high tides...we didn't and missed it but the Mont itself is still great to visit regardless.
