About the only positive thing I can say is that the motel is really cheap for being in the Loire valley. I paid 39 eur per night and it's definintely not worth more. The room is alright, not too spacious but for the price it's ok. Breakfast is good value for 6 eur, lots of variety, along with normal breakfast items there's a good offer of local cheese and ham as well. Stay here only if you are really on a tight budget.
The general level of cleanliness leaves much to be desired. The bathrooms are in a deplorable state, there's mauld, dirt and scale. The room was clean enough but the floor carpet was badly stained. The cups and trays at breakfast were downright dirty.
The entrance to the hotel stayed open all night long every night because the lock was faulty, while there is no night service at the reception, although on the day of our arrival we were told it would be fixed the next day. This never happened and from the note on the entrance I got the impression it had been like that for a while. This was quite disconcerting as the motel is next to the highway and in an industrial area, which is not to say it's not safe but it certainly would have felt safer it there had been more than just the door of my room between me and anyone entering the motel at their fancy.
