Hotel balladins Blois / Saint-Gervais
Reviewed 21 August 2015

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.

We booked this hotel only for 47 EUR for 3 person in September 2012. Located in a quiet industrial zone, far away from Blois center (10 minutes drive). The room was very basic but okay. Staff was not very helpful and did not speak English very well. If you need a cheap accomodation and you have a car, you will be okay with this motel, otherwise it is not recommended.

Got this hotel for a really low price from some internet site (34 euro). It's located in industrial zone, so it was VERY quite outside - had a really great sleep (not so common in French hotels). The room was clean, stuff didn't speak English very well, but there was no problem understanding whatever I needed.
Overall - for the price I payed - it was excellent!

We stayed here as we drove through the Loire Valley. Located in a quiet area in southern Blois, it is less than 10 minutes driving to central Blois. The customer service is good, but the person who worked there during our 2 night stay did not speak English. They offer a buffet breakfast for about 5 euro per person, which included a selection of croissants, breads, cereal, yogurt, fruit, deli meat, juices, and coffee/tea. The bathrooms were a bit small and the room door is heavy so it slams shut. We could often hear it coming from other rooms. However, this hotel has been a good value.
