This is a budget hotel and that is understood. But the price was within 1 euro of three-star hotels we stayed at in France. This was a 2-star. It probably should've been a 1-star. The room reminded me of my college dorm, BEFORE I moved in. The room has 2 small twin beds, a mini-tv, no curtains, no pictures on the walls, one chair and a counter. The bathroom was fine. The room was clean with white, white sheets. It was quiet and the parking was plentiful. The lighting was not sufficient for us to read the books we had along with us, so we moved downstairs into the lounge. The lounge was bright but the chairs were very uncomfortable. There was no air conditioning, which we expected inasmuch as it wasn't even a TIer 3 hotel. Breakfast the following morning was an experience. They had run out of juice. When I asked if there would be some replacements, I was treated like I was asking for more than I should. I didn't expect much for breakfast, given the price, but I at least expected a small glass of juice and bread. The bread choices were also minimal and the "pickins' were few". The staff seemed more interested in being outside talking with other staff member than meeting the requests of the paying customers. We will look elsewhere the next time we are in the area. This was the only hotel in France that we were not happy with.
