Not a palace, but:

- good 3 pax room ideal when travelling with young kid
- close to the airport
- safe parking
- good enough food for diner (nice pizzas)
- great value for price (I paid 59 EUR for a triple room)

Would be better if early breakfast was possible (but you can get a coffee at least) and if kettle was available in the room.

Room Tip: probably all the same

a) The Hotel is too old.
b) It says 3 Star doesn't deserve 1 star
c) I booked for Airport shuttle free service. But it was not available for my 530am trip to airport.
d) For the price it is too expensive.
e) The TV just sucks.
f) The restaurant is very basic and food is tasteless
g) No coffee maker at the room.

Very bad experience

We stayed her after taking the train from Italy so we could rent a car in France. The beds are hard as any I have ever slept on. The people were great, picking us up at 9:30 PM at the train station (Ste. Exuperry), though how the spot they told usthem meet them could be considered the "gas station" I will never know... Clean and fine in all respects other than the rock- hard mattresses.

This was the last hotel we stayed at after a 2 week trip We wanted a hotel close to the airport because we had an early flight. The free shuttle only comes at certain times so we had to wait over 2 hours at the airport because none of the taxis would take us because it had a free shuttle and it was "too close". The food at the restaurant is marginal, rooms are marginal. My biggest complaint is that we left at 5:30am - before breakfast is served and we did not ask for breakfast - but when we returned home, we realized they charged us for breakfast. (We did not look that AM at the bill because we were running late) Next time I would stay at the hotel that is right across the street from the airport because it would be more convenient and could not be any worse

Room Tip: There are no "best rooms"

Coming from wintersport holiday in the French Alps we had been driving 2 hours to this hotel, in suburbs of Lyon and at the side of the Route du Soleil. It is only 3 minutes drive from the highway, easy to find following the road sign. Made reservations 1 day ahead through internet. Only 2 star hotel and still very good (see scores). Rooms are small, but with one double bed and one single bed and a baby cot still enough walking space. The beds were somewhat older and you might feel the springs in the mattress. TV and desk in the room. Storage room for clothing very small. Bathroom was wide with bath and sink, toilet was separated. Fine for us for a 1 night stay on transit to home.
In the building is a pizzeria (available for dinner) and in the morning they serve breakfast (we didn't use). As our room was very close to the entrance we heard people from the pizzeria using the toilet facilities in the hallway and talking and laughing in the evening. At night all was quiet. Parking is convenient in front of the hotel. Friendly and quick service by the staff upon arrival and check-out.

This was our last hotel on a 2-week trip in France before returning to Canada.

We were attracted by the free shuttle to the airport and the free wifi, neither of which disappointed.

While the breakfast croissant and coffee were sub-par (eat downtown or at the airport), the hotel was quiet, 10 minutes from the airport, and the wifi worked perfectly.

Would stay there again, and did get useful information from the desk clerk on nearby food sources. Good value.
