Firstly the reviews on TA aren't great but the prices are about right for what you get.
The place when we visited a few weeks ago as part of a motorbike trip to the area was undergoing some refurbs. That said the room was clean/tidy and perfectly fine for 2 smelly bikers. The shower was hot with clean towels. The twin beds were comfortable. The lift worked to all floors. The dining room if you paid extra for breakfast was again clean/modern and perfectly good. (I suspect this had already been done up). There is a vending machine in the dining room available 24/7. Staff were helpful and speak good English. The hotel is located about 500 metres from La Gare (train station) and the local tram stop (20 mins and about 7 stops takes you directly to the Le Mans race track and cost about 6 euros per return trip. Just beyond the station concourse are a few bars/basic food shops and largely kebab café/restaurants. If you want other cuisine continue into town.
If you want a cheap place to explore the area this is just fine. PS a 24 hour petrol station is about 500 metres the other way so great for filling up before you leave.
PPS If you come by bike/motorbike you can park outside on the pavement without issue/payment as we did. Cars must pay in a local car park I thinkMore
