I am not sure why this is described as a "motel" its just a regular hotel. Situated a short 10 minute walk past the main shopping centre towards the old town, this is a very nice hotel surrounded by bars and cafes. The hotel restaurant is fine, try the "Fillets de Perches" which is the local delicacy when in season with a bottle of Swiss wine such as Chateau d'Auvenier. Don't go for a Fondu which is really only for tourists. The rooms are large, quiet, comfortable as you would expect from the Swiss and very clean, if a touch old fashioned and might benefit from a bit of modernisation, at least in style. There isn't always someone at the front desk, but a sign gives a number to ring from the phone on the desk and someone pops down, I imagine from the family flat. There is a rather ingenious method of returning hotel keys when you pop out of the hotel, which I have never seen before. All the staff were friendly and business-like. Language skills varied, but enough to get by on. As it is on the main road running through La Chaux de Fonds it is ideal for meeting people, or going to the International Watch Museum. There are other more centrally placed hotels, but they tend to be correspondingly more expensive. Remember that you are already at a 1000meters in height and that if you walk off the main road, you will be climbing up a steep hill. Fortunately, they have a very good public transport system and taxis from the station, so you need not arrive anywhere breathless - unless you want to.
