Satisfied customerPosted Feb 23, 2012
Pros: Very helpful and friendly staff
Cons: could do with written or graphic instructions for the carpark barrier especially for none french speakers. We got it in the end though!
Location: For the South side of Lille ideal. Access to other areas via autoroute is first class
All staff were extremely pleasant and helpful including the cleaning staff. We had clean towels everyday, without request, which is unusual even in a 4 star hotel. This a 1 star motel which is a little tired but is clean and is ideal as an overnight stopover. We actually stayed 3 nights because of our circumstances. We have no regrets. This is inexpensive accomodation, easy to find close to all amenities including a major shopping centre and close to the new sports stadium under construction. The hotel is next to slip road off the autoroute but above it. We are light sleepers but did not suffer any disturbance during the night. Other motel options close by were right at the side of the autoroute

Basics are includedPosted Nov 6, 2011 on Hotels.com
Stars Hotel has the basics only. The bedroom was small and could have been cleaner. Bathroom was OK. There was no chair in the room to stay by the small table. A mall is across the street ( to escape the very expensive breakfast rate) and subway in within minutes walk (Lille center is no more than a ten minute ride). Highways are close but its noise was barely heard in th room

Hotel Stars Lillie France-A Good ChoicePosted Jun 7, 2011 on Hotels.com
As always there are pros and cons to a hotel stay. We booked because of the other fairly good reviews, location and price. If you want a place to sleep-this is a good choice. Not a good choice if you are expecting a luxury hotel experience. The room was cleaned and left us with the extra towels after our first request without additional requests. Minimal English is spoken by the staff-but hey-it is France. We all got on well enough and they were very nice. A simple "good morning" in French is a appreciated and goes far in good will. The hotel is not so easy to locate-we drove in from Brussels. The parking lot was going through remodeling so we had to park on the side street-somewhat of an inconvenience-but not the fault of the hotel. The neighborhood is nice-we felt safe. The huge mall is withing walking distance and at Flunch you can get a good cup of coffee and dinner-all buffet. There is a large grocery store on the 2nd floor to purchase water-breakfast rolls, etc.. if you are on a budget. There is also a McDonald's close by. Note that on Sunday-everything closes early-we arrived late Sunday and only had that option to eat our dinner. Lillie is 3 hours from Paris and very close to WWI sites in Belgium. It is a good choice for the weary traveler who is interested in exploring the area, not having a luxury hotel experience. We also were able to connect to the Wi-Fi OK.

Mixed bag, but generally good for the pricePosted Apr 26, 2011
You're not going to want to stay here on a holiday, but for a 1 night stopover on a road trip it's very good value, staff are very friendly and helpful, and it's located close to the motorway network between Lille and the rest of France. Facilities are basic, but our room was clean and tidy, everything worked well, and the staff were excellent. Showers are just plastic cubicles, but had a good strong jet of water. Some mould on ceilings, and one of our group had brown water for the first 20 secs, but fine apart from that! Neighbourhood seems safe enough, just off main A1 route, about 10 mins from central Lille

Perfectly adequate budget hotel at a great pricePosted Aug 15, 2008 on Hotels.com
Being happy with a choice of hotel is all about expectations. Our expectations of the Stars hotel was that it would be basic, functional, acceptably clean and comfortable, and represent value for money at the very low rate we were charged. In the end, the hotel lived up to this expectation 100%. It's not de-luxe. If you're expecting the Ritz-Carlton, you'll be disappointed. The room is adequate for 2 people, theres a decent bed (a little basic and firm, but we slept well), it's clean and there's a tv on the wall. The bathroom has everything you need, and is clean, if small (disabled/very large guests would find the shower cubicle impossible). There was plenty of hot water, and the staff tried their best to help whenever we asked (for example, the lady on day shift managed to find us a couple of extra pillows to supplement the two provided). Location-wise, the hotel is literally across the road from a huge shopping mall with a fantastic array of stores and a large supermarket. It's also 5 minutes stroll from a metro station. In summary, if you're on a budget and looking to explore Lille on foot, you could do worse than stay here, save a few Euros and take the metro into town every day. If you're driving around the region, there's free car parking, and the hotel is easy enough to find and close to the motorways. All in all, we got what we expected at a very low price, and that was all we asked for.

MoldPosted Nov 15, 2007
We stayed at the Hotel Stars in Lille after making a last minute reservation. We booked two rooms, one for my husband and I and one for our two adult daughters. Our room was clean, but that of our two daughters had mold all over the bathroom, a broken bed frame and the sheets were not clean. The second night they were able to change rooms and that room was clean. The staff was friendly and accomodating and the breakfast buffet was good. However the showers were very small even for European standards.
