French hotel chains
Got a French road trip coming up and looking for some pointers on "functional" hotels chains – need to be near autoroutes and at the Travel Lodge/Premier Inn end of the spectrum.
What are Formule1's like?
Others to look – Campanile, Premiere Classe, Kyriad?

just spent a weekend in a Formule 1, it was cheap, certainly functional, but perfectly manageable, i don't think they charged for the whacked out Algerian man wearing just a wet t-shirt who was wandering the halls and trying all the doors at 2am, so your knowledge of French swear-words could increase, which is always a bonusPosted 8 years agovinnyehSubscriber
What cfh says, ibis normally fine. Have a look at accorhotels.com- under 'brands' you can see all their stuff, and get an idea of it's relative luxury, or otherwise
I'll take a sleeping bag if there's the faintest chance of ending in a Fomule1 or similar, the sheets are awful.Posted 8 years agoianvMember

Formule 1 have communal showers and toilets but clean and I have never been in a bad one
Campanile is overpriced and average
For a cheap roadtrip you wont go wrong with the first 4.GillesMember
problem with Formule 1 if you arrived late, and your card does not work, you get stucked outside as there is no overnight staff.Posted 8 years ago
But I will encourage you finding a small hotel in the city centre, usually good, friendly and good breakfast, and you can top up at the near boulangerie for your next trip in the morning.
