“Ghastly!”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We could not find a hotel in Flers so had to book in here. The place is run like a concentration camp. The 'secure' parking was not secure as the gate had been broken for while and nobody was bothering to fix it.
The room and bathroom are falling apart and, with the window being very small felt like a cell.
OK for one night in an emergency but otherwise not.
Certainly not a place to stay of you actually wish to visit the town of Flers as it is in an industrial estate way out of town.
Etap hotels are never good but they are very expensive considering they are the same price as one of the Campaniles.
A hotel for the desperate.

We stayed in this hotel one night. We usually have nothing bad to say about any Accor hotel and have always had good luck with the ETAP chain. This time was an exception. The hotel location was not near the ville of Flers as it appeared to be on the booking engine. You need a car to stay in this hotel. Don't book it if you're arriving by train. There was no one at the front desk the entire time we were there. A woman would come out if we pushed a button but she was back into her apartment like a flash if you paused too long in mid-sentence.
Just after check-in we tried to use the free WIFI offered by the hotel but it wouldn't work on our Apple MacBook. We dragged the laptop down to the front desk and asked for help. The woman working the desk that evening demonstrated that the WIFI worked on her Windows laptop and concluded that the problem was with my machine. I went back to the room and easily logged on to a nearby pay WIFI network offered by Orange. I was tired and hungry so paying €10 for access seemed easier than convincing her to reset her "LiveBox" router.
After dinner we were ready for bed but when we lifted the pillows to turn down the bed, there was a pretty foul looking stain on the duvet and makeup stains on the sheets. It was after midnight, the lobby was dark and we didn't expect this woman at the desk to get out of bed for this so we removed the sheets from the overhead bunk bed and covered the stains for the night.
Overall, one of the worst hotels we've booked in France and not up to Accor standards. We stay in Accor hotels almost exclusively because they're a good value-for-money so this one bad apple won't affect our future stays with the usually excellent chain.

Spent 2 night at Etap in Flers. Hotel is very god value for money, very decent standard, modern and clean. Powerful shower, flat screen TV, could not fault this budget option.
