Good location and the facilities are as expected of a Formule1 hotel. Large car park and supermarket with petrol station right next door. Breakfast cheap and cheerful, but some more fresh fruit and soya milk wouldn't go amiss. Staff friendly and accommodating.

Stayed for one night. Hotel is ideally located for branching out in the local area. The hotel is 1 minute walk to the closest bus stop with half-hourly services to the centre. There is also a well stocked supermarket next door and free parking outside. The room was spacious with a nicely sized window and a good range of tv channels. Showers and toilets were located no more than 15 seconds from our room which was one of the furthest away. All the toilets and showers were clean and freshly smelling with a hair dryer in the showers. Yes you do have to share the facilities but for us that is not a problem. Yes there is no hand washing facilities in the toilets but we bought our own soap in the neighbouring supermarket, especially as it'll get used at home. The all you can eat breakfast was small but filling. A nice range of cereal, toast and breads along with hot and cold drinks was good for us. We don't mind it being cheap or basic. For the price, you get what you pay for and for us, that is suitable. The staff are lovely and speak English which helped as we don't speak much French. We will definitely stay again :)

I booked 2 rooms for my family to stay in before our ferry crossing back to England. I knew it was shared bathrooms but after 2 weeks on various campsites we felt this was no different. How wrong could we be. The toilets was truckers petrol station cleanliness, as was the showers. You would of been dirtier after you got out. On entering the corridors to the rooms the smell of smoking hits you enough to make you feel sick, the rooms are even worse. The rooms are filthy, with stains on walls floors, the sink. The bedding was threadbare. I so wish I’d read trip advisor before booking. The receptionist showed us several rooms but all was in the same unacceptable state, she said she couldn’t transfer us to any other Accor hotel or give us our money back. So we was left out of pocket and had to pay for another hotel. Mychildren was distressed not only by hotel but also the large group of travellers that was living on the car park next to the hotel. All in all the worse decision I’ve ever made in regards to a hotel

This hotel is awful. Cheap, yes but that should not equate to flea ridden beds. The lack of hand washing facilities in the toilets raises an instant concern about cleanliness. We were with friends and two rooms had fleas. Stale smoke smell throughout. This is more like a truckers pit stop. Awful, just awful.

Stayed one night. Never again will we stay in one of these. Yes it is cheap but for that you get shared toilet facilities and showers, noisy residents and a permanent smell of stale cigarette smoke despite the hotel ‘supposedly’ being no smoking, all you have to do is look outside the window to see the number of discarded fag ends. The hotel is in an industrial park (it could be loosely described as a retail park, the parking is part of that there is no separate parking for the hotel

Very cheap, as all the F1, but also one of the dirtiest F1 hotel we ever slept in. Some customers were very noisy during night. Staff is not really nice and we have had to ask several time for replenish boxes at breakfast. Chocolate at the dispenser machine didn't work.

I have been staying at this motel every year for the past 17 years every year for a week each time over the 6th June D-Day commemorations in Normandy. I come with 17 guests including aging D-Day veterans. Phillip the owner and his staff have always been courteous, helpful, accommodating and more. The rooms, showers and toilets are always kept in super clean condition. The price per room for up to three occupants is the cheapest you will find in the area and beyond for the facilities offered. Morning breakfast is substantial with cereal, juice, bread, jams and more. Well appreciated for the small extra price.

I only booked this hotel because I didn't realise that the toilets and showers are shared. This kind of hotel is the one I wouldn't stay. As soon as I arrived at the hotel I was received by a very friendly and helpful lady. The biggest problem was the fact the whole hotel was smelling cigarette smoke and when I came back to the hotel at night there were some service men walking around with their pyjamas. My wife and I didn't feel comfortable with this situation, especially because we have a young daughter. My experience here wasn't so good. Because of that, I cancelled my booking in the F1 Hotel in Reims and I staied in the Ibis Budget in Caen and Reims.

This was my fathers first experience in a Hostel. The rooms were clean, but the hallways smelled so bad. As with any Hostel, bring shower shoes and your own towel---I got an ear-full from my Dad that they didn't have any (typical old American man complaints). The phone that you use to check-in or at least to get someone to the front desk wasn't working so we waited over an hour to get our room number, that was kind of hectic. Other than that--great place to stay---especially if you are visiting the Normandy Memorial Museum as its practically within walking distance. 6/10 would maybe recommend it to someone solely based on location.
