Les Gens de Mer is a low-end French chain. The Boulogne "hotel" is located overlooking the pleasure marina to the front and industrial spaces to the rear and the adjoining building seems to be semi-derlict at the moment. However it is a reasonably short walk to the town centre but quite a long, and not particularly pleasant walk (circa 30 minutes) from the main SNCF train station (Boulogne Ville) so I would recommend taking a taxi. Hotel's carpark is convenient given the proximity to the centre. The room where I stayed (223 overlooking rear) is basic but clean. Sound proofing seems to be minimal. Decor is quite dingy. Rooms are on two levels (no lift) and there are also steps up to the entrance. The restaurant is better than I expected with excellent fresh fish, as to be expected in Boulogne. There is a full á la carte menu, as well as set menu which is reasonable value at cEuro20 for three courses. There were two dogs sitting under tables at dinner so it does seem to be quite pet-friendly. Breakfast is an adequate cold buffet and is apparently available from 6-10am. Meat and cheese selection is not as good as other places that I've stayed in France but orange juice is freshly squeezed. The staff seems friendly and helpful. Although the accommodation seems rather overpriced for what one gets, it would be worth considering for a stopover en route to/from the ferry at Calais. I would definitely not want to spend much more than a night here though.

Stayed there for one night. Reception desk could not speak english. Only french TV stations. Small shower. Car park was free and directly at the hotel. Double beds were small. Breakfast was OK. With an open window in the morning the noise was loud. You could reach the city center in 5 - 10 minutes by feet.
