Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Kasbah Tizimi
Rte. de Jorf, Erfoud, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco
This faux 1960s kasbah is popular with package-tour operators, but it's a decent midrange place for independent travelers to stop on the way to or from the desert as well. Rooms are spacious, clean, and have reversible air-conditioning; the decor, though basic, has some traditional Moroccan flourishes (rugs, ornaments, mosaic tiling, local granite washbasins, and so forth). The helpful attentive staff will be happy to serve you chilled drinks on the pool terrace. There's also a large bar and salon de thé, plus a Moroccan restaurant serving lunch and dinner.
