As part of our honeymoon, my wife and I did a walking tour of Normandy and Brittany along Mont-Saint-Michel Bay. We walked from town to town, staying in a different hotel each night. This hotel was seriously lacking. The rooms were probably last updated in the '70s, which in and of itself was not bad — there's a certain run-down charm in the retro nature of the place ... at least that's what you could tell yourself if you had to stay here.
We were all set to make the best of it and just enjoy our honeymoon and get some rest after hiking all day, but after doing our customary check-in inspection we found bed bugs.
We promptly grabbed our stuff and spoke to the owner and told her we'd be staying elsewhere. Her reaction was simply that "It's an old hotel. These things happen."
She did help us transfer to another hotel that her family runs closer to the beach. My advice would be to start at that hotel (which seemed bed-bug-free) or to just try another town altogether.
We ate at the restaurant there because our dinner there was included in our hiking-tour package. We wanted to go elsewhere after the experience but it was the only thing open for dinner in St. Jean Le Thomas. The menu was uninspired and the service slow and unattentive.
