It is definitely a special place that will leave you with unforgettable memories! Enjoy! The place, its beauty, the views and the rich history. Try to forget the expense and arrogance of poor service yo will no doubt encounter during your visit.

We went to Hôtel Vert. It's near the Mont Saint Michel. The price for 2 adults is 89 eur by night. It's very clean and just in front of the bus (free) to go to the Mont Saint Michel.
