Small but functional rooms, very quiet and clean. Very nice staff eager to please. Convenient if you have no reason to get lost in Grenoble traffic. Reasonable value for the price. Breakfast buffet included in room price.

To the extent that large rooms are not expected with a Holyday Inn Express, accomodation is simple but functional. Staff extremely pleasant and welcoming. This was our second stay because the location was convenient to visit family nearby, we knew what to expect and had no surprise. Air conditioning is controlled by the desk to save energy, but it only takes a call to request the desired temperature... and it works. Quick access from Autoroute A41 for people who don't need to fight traffic in Grenoble.

Far from the city of Grenoble, it is a tipical H.Inn. If you have a car ok,that is fine, but if you do not have forget this hotel, but is a good value for your money if you can get a promo.
Free parking, breakfast included and starting at 06:00 a.m. , but i say only if you have a car....

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express while we were traveling on the road. Very clean rooms and professional staff. WiFi was included and very good in the room. Everything was clean and the staff was very professional and helpful. I didn't have my membership information with me, but the staff took my information so I could get points for my stay.

I would definetly recommend this hotel. It also has a nice pool, restaurant, etc... and also a good stay for families.

Previous reviewers have commented about the great views, good location, rural setting, clean and modern nature of the hotel, and the very good staff. Somebody also pointed out the restaurant is closed on Sundays so if that's your arrival day then you're on your own. Breakfast is so-so ... nothing special, just the usual HIE stuff and I have seen better HIE breakfast elsewhere.

However nobody pointed out the A/C which is centrally controlled meaning that if you want it warmer or cooler, you have to call reception to make the change. I can see the economics of doing this, the energy saving bring the main reason, but when it doesn't work, its a disaster. Room 125 was far too warm, I was perspiring, couldn't sleep, the helpful receptionist said she'd set the thermostat down to 16 deg but I had to change room. The second room wasn't much better but I did get to sleep. Maybe with the right weather where you could leave the window open it wouldn't be an issue but for me, on a hot September night, it was a problem.

Another of the many positives was that they rent mountain bikes and I didn't have the appropriate clothes, so if you've got some spare time at this hotel then bring your gear and go for a cycle.

Room Tip: Don't sleep on the ground floor as you won't be secure if you have to leave your window open...

New, quiet location with stunning views, staff very helpful and excellent breakfast. Large rooms with all you need. Wifi is free but only for 8 hrs so judge whether you need it on arrival or before departure.Not the easiest one to find nut best approach is off the (free) autoroute from Grenoble to Chambery. Outside pool looked inviting but we were on a stopover so didn't use it.

The hotel is OK, pretty standard for the brand and price. The views are impressive but the location is in an industrial estate and the hotel is not within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars, etc.

My biggest complaint about the hotel is that the Air Conditioning is blowing constantly, is not controllable and is quite noisy.

Otherwise, the service was very good (by French standards) and breakfast was standard continental fare.
