After reading up on Casablanca, I was well prepared to be overcharged for inferior lodgings/goods/services. However, once we checked in, we loved the hotel. Yes, it is a little worn (as another reviewer put it) but there were no bugs and the hotel was clean. The view of the ocean from our room was wonderful, and breakfast brought out to you on the terrace with a view every morning was a treat. The AC didn't work the best, but once the sun goes down, Morocco is no longer unbearably hot, so we found it adequate.
As two single American women, my sister and I were a little worried about what to expect in way of treatment. On the street there were some rude encounters (we dressed conservatively, by the way) but the hotel staff was courteous and friendly to us at all times. When it was time to leave, the staff called us a cab and spoke to the driver so he wouldn't overcharge us like the cabbie who drove us in when we arrived.
I rated this hotel above average and not excellent because based on what you may be used to in Europe or America, you may find the hotel to be somewhat lacking. But by Casablanca standards, this was a gorgeous hotel and most definitely not overpriced.
