I thought this hotel was fine, but boy was it far from everything except what I think is a sports complex. I think the only way to reach it is by rental car or a fairly long taxi ride from the airport, any train station, downtown, or the corniche. When I say "fine", it's in contrast to the airport ETAP, and to try to redeem myself after my review of that one. This was a typical ETAP, in my opinion. Everything you would expect of one, and clean, everything in good order. Free wireless in the lobby only. Parking was free. Free. (For this reason, I don't know if the above review was about this hotel. It sounds like one of the other Nice ETAPs.)
If you are driving, the directions are mostly easy, but it's another where you must pass it on the main road, and have to work your way back to its frontage road from a future offramp. If you don't see it and get off at your next chance, you're on the Peage (paying) to Grenoble etc.
I don't know if I'd recommend it to a friend. It's very inexpensive, but that's mitigated by how far it is from everything. You'll likely pay MUCH more for a cab than you will save by staying there (e.g., by paying less than the ETAP Californie, one block off the Cote d'Azure). So, I'm going to click the thumbs down button -- unless you're driving.
