We stayed there a few months ago for a couple of nights, and wished we didn't. I was relying on the Mercure name as I've had good experience staying in this chain elsewhere before, but this Mercure branch needs an honest-to-goodness updating or upgrading. Reception was quite efficient (though I found it disconcerting that the sales manager (he seemed to be) only acknowledged my husband whenever we were at the counter requesting something -- perhaps because he spoke french and i did not? They already knew that when we first arrived).
The room was relatively clean but small and basic. A lot of stuff in our room, however, badly needed fixing! The window shades would not close properly, one of the wall lamps was cracked or bashed in, and the toilet paper holder in the bathroom was loose. For the room rate I paid, I expected the basic things at least to work.
The location is good only if one is transiting (and do not need anything but a relatively clean bed for a few hours and a quick shower) or has work to do in the immediate area, which is an industrial park, with some residential apartments a block or so away. In any case, there is nothing else to do or to see here. Good thing, though, is that wifi connection was strong (at least in our room) and there were good channels n TV -- it compensated for the really bland surroundings.
We checked out the breakfast buffet, but decided against it, as we thought it was too paltry for the amount they charged. We got croissants and coffee in the station, instead.
Such a joyless place, but if one doesn't mind so much not to get value for what one pays for and absolutely need to be in that area, then it is better to choose another hotel (but not in this area).
