“Good value, clean, central, very nice staff”
Reviewed 27 December 2012

A surprising location for a hotel in a commercial street, but the location is within walking
distance of many neighborhoods of lower Haifa. The down side of the location is nosiness, especially in the morning.
Room was clean and spacious and comfortable. Has a mini kitchen, though we didn't use it.
The staff (owners) were very nice and helpful.
Included breakfast, served at a nearby restaurant, was excellent.

The "motel" in the name is completely misleading as there is no on-site parking. We did find a spot quite easily in the parallel street, though, but that might be a bit of a challenge during business hours.

We spent a night at the Loui's and we liked it a lot. What makes this place really special is the feeling that the staff are giving. Their personal approach is something very unique.
The location is good - the motel is in the Hadar area and is close to the bus stop.
Breakfast is not included but the staff can recommend you a perfect place nearby to have an unexpensive and a very good breakfast.
I'm sure, next time if we need a place to stay overnight in Haifa, Loui's Motel is the ultimate place for us.

I felt lead to the Loui M and I couldn't have found a better spot for my adventure in Israel. Centrally located not only for local travel and needs, but in a great location to explore other sites and areas in northern Israel. The hotel offers amazing value and warm hospitality. Rooms are clean, eclectic, and well equipped offering wifi, air conditioning and kitchenette. A true gem for the independant traveller.

The rooms are very good for the price and the location is fairly central - althought it isn't especially easy to find as the road outside is one-way for cars.

The hotel doesn't have its own parking so that could be a problem at peak times.

The furnishings are a touch basic but we had satelite tv and a kitchenette. There's only a shower (no bath) and you have to turn on the hot water a few minutes beforehand. Everything was clean and most of it looked fairly new.

I arrived in Haifa earlier than expected and tried to check in one night early, at 1 AM. But I was told by the night watchman that it would cost $300 even though I had reservations for the next two nights for $55 each (400 NIS for 2 nights). When I came back the next day, the owner was courteous and helpful - so you can expect the service to be rather inconsistent. But the room was newly refurbished with modern furnishings and comfortable enough. While not perfectly clean, I didn't find any bugs, and it was very good compared to many hotels in Israel. It is located in the center of Haifa, and I found the location to be rather noisy at night. Ha-Halutz was closed for construction just before the hotel, which made getting there rather difficult. There is no parking lot, and it can be impossible to find parking on the street in mid-day. It is just two blocks from the market and the shopping district of Haifa, which has excellent fresh fruit and many cheap goods from the port. You will need to know either Russian or Hebrew to bargain with the shopkeepers. ;)

Hotel is a 5 min-walk from the main street and 15 min to the harbour (downhill), en suite rooms start around 70 $, are basic but with kitchen, screen TV and AC. Since the hotels sells the rooms with breakfast but doesn’t offer some you will get a coupon for a nearby restaurant (except on Saterday when you have to go to another restaurant on the top of the hill (30 min walk uphill or 10 min drive – no public transport on Sat) – it works well.
Clue: If you stay longer then 1 night ask for the rooms with satellite TV (only a view rooms do have it) the others have only 4 boring channels.
