We stayed here for 3 nights in September and had a very nice room on the 1st floor with views over the marsh and flamingos in the distance.
The centre of Saintes Maries is full of shops, bars and restaurants and takes 5 minutes by car - there's lots of parking, mostly free - and about 15 minutes on foot. We don't really do breakfast so €20 in the hotel was a touch extravagant, but there were plenty of places in town to take a coffee and pain beurre for a few euros. Lots of different choices for dinner; some good, some pretty dire....
We only dined in the restaurant once, but it was close to being the nicest meal we had during our 3 week trip; I didn't feel that €50 per head was excessive for a 5 course dinner. The restaurant is very comfortable, with well-spaced tables and excellent service with an extensive and well-priced wine list. It was a lovely evening, slightly marred by some very badly behaved kids (probably not French then).
The hotel is very convenient for the Parc Ornithologique de Pond de Gau; pleasant even if you're not an avid birdwatcher and there are horse-riding places close by.
Mosquitos are a bit of a problem all over the Camargue, particularly after dusk, so don't forget your insect repellent!
