“Good but not outstanding”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2011

Room is large enough and bathroom is nice with a full size tub/shower. I have found European budget hotels to often be short on space in the room and having extremely small showers, not the case here. Staff was not as friendly as my last visit but was OK. Breakfast was cold meats, bacon and scrambled eggs, yogurt, fresh bread and crossiants, etc. except a lack a cheese to go along with the cold meats. High priced by American standards at 13 Euros. Well kept pool and patio area which gives a nice option in the warm weather. Room carpet was old and needed to be replaced to meet the level of the rest of the hotel . Had dinner at the hotel and it was very good at a good price. Limited menu choices each night.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2009

In April 2009 this hotel dropped its affiliation with Mercure. It is now called Motel de Rhone (?). The room was clean and pleasant., everything worked including the air conditioner. Breakfast very nice, staff pleasant. Located right along the Rhone River and there is a nice walking path along the river. Dinner at the hotel was excellent.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2007

We stayed on a Saturday night for a stop-over in June. There were few people staying. Usual two star Mercure in appearance, room size and comfort. Minimal staff who were pleasant and ran both the reception and the small restaurant. The hotel is well off the main road. It does offer a small pool and sun terrace, and it’s also within a few yards of the banks of the Rhône river with a footpath and trees. It’s a couple of miles off the motorway on the outskirts of Valence but relatively peaceful so perhaps worth the detour.
