We arrived & we didn't find anyone at the desk. It was that way when we left. There is a facility for dining but it doesn't open until 8 P.M. The signage could be better. Our driver was a person who lives in the town & he had a difficult time finding the place. Needs some attention to repairs. We... More

The hotel is located very far away from city center in the business area. There is nothing around apart from other hotels. The rooms are dark, outdated and dirty. The blankets have probably been recovered from the military stock after D-day. Rooms offers a poor sense of security as the window at ground level is in fact a glass door.... More

Good Points : Very friendly and helpful staff.. Well positioned in a fairly quiet area for the Memorial Museum and main road access. Bad Points : Very small bedroom, and poorly designed 'bathroom'. No lift. But as as someone has said - at that price you do not expect the Hilton !

I stayed two nights in this hotel while visiting the Normandy beach landings. For the price I found this hotel very pleasing. The hotel staff was extremely pleasant and welcoming when arriving. I checked into my room (34) and it definitely suited my needs. Nothing fancy but a comfy bed and clean washroom is all I required. Internet worked very... More

First impressions are good, this budget hotel is, as many in the same budget category are, situated in the North-west suburbs of Caen approximately 3 miles from the City centre (and just down the road from the Memorial), in an attractive industrial estate amongst some quite interesting modern architecture. The entire area is clean with no litter or graffiti in... More

The outside appearance of the hotel is very nice with tables and hedging. Reception is manned until 23.00 which was a great relief as often we've stayed in places like Quick Palace and Ibis Budget which are only manned for a couple of hours during breakfast and early evening! The room wasn't great, but we only paid 40 Euros having... More

I stayed in the Hotel Crocus Caen Memorial which I think is this one. This score would have been higher but when I arrived, admittedly later than expected just after 9, I checked in, put my bag in my room, brought in my laptop and came straight back down to eat in the restaurant - which did look nice. However... More

OK - I wanted to break up a long journey across France - and I acknowledge that according to Booking.Com that I had booked the cheapest Hotel in Caen - but at almost £80 for two rooms (think UK Travel Lodge prices) and then a very expensive and poor evening meal and breakfast (which is hardly possible in France) then...

We arrived to a nice hotel and a nice reception and restaurant area. However as mentioned on other reviews, once behind this facard things go down hill quickly. Dim and tired corridors leading to below par rooms that have seen much better days. Loose electic sockets, plastic bathroom and a unpleasant odor does nothing to greet a weary traveller.
