Liked: Staff & service, amenities
The room was not clean (hair on the floor and wall) when I checked in. Food was below standard I would say, compared to my past experience staying in the hotel.

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
2 star hotel (at best)
Horrible, horrible, horrible. I used to come here about ten years ago, and loved it. Now EVERYTHING is awful! Ceiling leaking, restaurant is a joke, air conditioning does not work, and the hotel itself needs to be totally remodeled/rebuilt. It looks like 2 star hotel, and Ibis down the road (same Accord chain) is MUCH BETTER, for 1/3 of the price. Just a really awful hotel...

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The area near Sophia Antipolis is beautiful with much to do! The buidling is modern and secure. We were welcomed at the front door by staff who provided an easy checkin. When we arrived to our room the air conditioner was not working but they quickly assigned us to a new room where everything ran perfectly. The room was basic but had everything you need including complimentary water. They do have a big eating area that was well decorated but it is extra and we decided to go elsewhere. The pool closes early around dinner time so my kids were disappointed but it looked nice! Overall we would stay here again!
