This is an average hotel with above average prices. It may be that all of the hotels by the Abbey are high price due to location. If you find that to be the case be either a day visitor or pay extra and stay on the Abbey grounds. The food at this hotel was not very good for either dinner or breakfast. The bar was ok but small.
expected more from this hotel that was more like a budget motel (but not in price). Room smelled of disinfectant upon entering. WIFI was unusable (was told to come to lobby if we needed wifi). Not up to standards of Mercure chain.
Arrives at 6pm late check-in is fine as there is a free shuttle service run until midnight US & JP customers will enjoy the large room & bathroom in a 4 * hotel in France the restaurant is just outside along a covered patio with annex I think / Walk to the mount if you can spare the time + visit the abbey + free shuttle back / Plan dinner 8:30 latest & outside visit afterwards / Check out tides = try & go 36 to 48 hours after full moon or new moon / Noon check-out B4 leaving at 2 pm = 20 hours ie you might even spend 24 hours there & avoid some of the more crowded shuttles with maximum 18 seats. Enjoy !
Hotel is Ok. Booking is not Ok. I booked with agoda.com and made a simulation on Booking.com. I booked with agoda And not with booking.com. I get confirmation email from agoda. Never got confirmation email from booking.com But by arrival I had booking of 2 rooms. 1 by agoda which one was ok. 1 by booking.com which one was not ok because I never confirmed it and I never got email from it. But booking.com had my credit card info from an earlier booking in an other hotel. So the hotel recieve a booking from agoda and one from booking.com. They should react on a thing like that. And they refuse to cancel the booking with booking.com. They should have checked or at least cancel a booking and give me back my money.
Excellent location, car park and shuttle bus to Mont Saint Michel right outside the door, which operates from 0800 to 2400. You need a code to open the barrier, so that you enter the road leading to the hotel, this costs 4 euros, if you go back out through the automatic barrier, it is another 4 euros to come back in again. I believe this is not the hotels fault but goes towards the Mont Saint Michel Project. Careful if you have mobility problems, there is no lift to the first floor rooms!
I’ve never stayed at a Mercure property prior to this stay, but the options were limited near Mont Saint-Michel, so I chose this property. To be honest, I didn’t have high hopes for this place. But boy, I was wrong. The staff at the front desk were helpful and kind. They even took the time to provide info about restaurants, shuttles, etc. Our room was much better than I ever expected. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathrooms appeared to be recently renovated which gave the whole room a much better look and feel. We had both breakfast and dinner at their restaurant, and both meals were very good. I would recommend making a reservation for dinner, however. The hotel is directly across from the shuttle pick-up, and the drop-off is directly in front of the hotel. Great place. Great staff. Great location. Stay at the Mercure Mont Saint-Michel if you’re in the area!
We booked a two night stay on this hotel. Before you get to it there was a barrier in which you get needed the access code from the hotel in order to get through it. On a positive side it did stop masses of people parking who haven’t booked a hotel who just wanted to go to the abbey. The Mercure is low rise motel style hotel with non-smoking rooms with good wi-fi and air conditioning. Its two kilometres from the abbey in a well-located and peaceful location. It’s an ideal base to explore the abbey and the surrounding area. Parking is free but please note as we found out, do not park underneath the trees as our motorbike got covered in pigeon poo and my husband got splattered too. Our room wasn’t ready so the friendly receptionist gave us another at the end of the first floor which had a double and single bed. Our room had two doors, an outside one to enter into the room and another inside dividing the bedroom from the spacious bathroom and ample storage space area. The room had a kettle, a mini bar and a comfortable big bed. We didn’t eat in the restaurant as we thought it was overpriced and breakfast costs 15 euros each so we ate elsewhere. There is a restaurant opposite the hotel and a few others to choose from. The hotel is in front of the bus stop which can take you to the abbey. We walked it as it was worth the view. Overall we were satisfied with our stay at the Mercure.
From a Mercure 4* hotel I do expect more as it comes to hygiene. My partner is allergic especially to the little bugs in fabrics and he didn't get much sleep here. Normally we try to find a hotel with no carpet on the floor but because it was a Mercure hotel and it was only 1 night, we tought it would be ok. But sorry, he had almost no sleep and even had to finish the night in the bathtub. We tried putting 5 of our own sheet on the bed, but still it didn't help. When we got back home, we even had to wash verything in the suitcase. There is to much fabric in the room that is too old and this is why this happens. You have the carpet, the curtains, the lamps, the paper on the walls, ... And then last but not least the mattress needs to be changed. I'm sorry for the negativity, I usually don't do this, but it needs to be said so something can be done about it or to avoid other allergic ppl not to have to experience the same. Besides that, the staff was friendly, the location was really good and breakfast was nice.
I booked this hotel a few months ago - on a booking site listed on Trip Advisor. This was the best price for our one night stay, so I booked two rooms (four adults) and asked for the rooms to be close by. The confirmation email arrived from the booking website and a few hours later a second email arrived from the hotel promising rooms next door to each other and it advised us that the code for the parking barrier. would follow. The day before we drove to Mont St Michel the email arrived with the barrier code - unfortunately it went straight to my spam folder but a phonemail to the hotel saved the day. My daughter and her boyfriend also booked a room for the same night and travelled with us. The hotel got all three rooms within about 6 doors of each other. The rooms are basic - but they were clean and have everything that you need. The shuttle buses stop less than 50 metres up the road going to the Mont, and right outside coming back - ideal. Its only a 2km walk to the Mont so it's about a 5 minute ride. Breakfast in the restaurant next door is a serve yourself buffet. There's a reasonable selection of hot and cold food and enough to fill the hungriest of travellers. One word of warning - DO NOT park your car underneath the trees - the local pigeon population used mine as target practice and it needed some vigorous cleaning afterwards
We visited Mont-Saint-Michel late afternoon on a Saturday in Aug and since we had not made any advance reservations for the night, everything on hotel locating web sites was very high priced ($400+) or quite a distance away we decided to chance walking into the hotels in the shuttle bus area. The one we walked into didn't have a room but she could check all the area hotels. Hotel Mercur had 1 room left for 169 euro, although more than we usually pay, at that point it was a deal, especially since it includes breakfast if you're 60+. We did have to pay 11,E to get our car from parking lot + 4 EUR for code to get in their lot. But it was great being able to go back to MSM in the evening and again early in morning. Hotel staff was very nice. Breakfast was good and our room (23) was very nice with recently done modern bath... definitely smarter to make reservation ahead but we were lucky.
