Having read other reviews, I can only conclude that things have changed since they were written (and the worst was written 3 years ago, so this is highly possible). This hotel is NOT dirty. It is clean.
It is however, a little tired, but there is
a big difference between tired and unclean. This is reflected in the price! You're not going to get the Ritz for the this price, so don't expect it!
No major facilities, however the big plus point was the unflagging helpfulness of the staff. Their service and friendliness went above and beyond what could be expected, or that I have experienced at other hotels.
In response to some older reviews, I would like to add that internet did work in the room, at all times. There were enough towels, and the place was clean. Not pretty, but clean.
If you want somewhere flashy with lots of mod cons, don't book here (but don't expect the same price, either). If you don't mind decor that's a little old, but value friendly and personable staff, and want a budget stay close to both the pretty town of La Penne and the autoroute with easy access to the coast and Marseille, then it does the job very well indeed. I would stay here again. I would also add, to the reviewer back in 2009, despite the name, the address is shown when booking, so it's best to check the location of your hotel before booking.
