Hotel Kasbah Asmaa
South edge of town on the the main N13 route. About 100 meters past the Ziz gas station.
Was able to park bike inside the protected courtyard area. Paid the watchman 15 - 20 dirham a day for keeping an eye on it.
Paid 350 for a room for one person including breakfast. 450 including a dinner set meal.
They have decently speedy wifi/internet in the lobby.
Heaters in the rooms and plenty of hot water in the shower.
Staff spoke decent English and was VERY helpful in arranging things and helping me get stuff done.
Nice cosy hotel with a fire place and beautiful public areas. The bathrooms in the rooms leave something to be desired but are clean and working.
I stayed 4 nights and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Lac Maider camping/Auberge

Lac Maider camping/Auberge-Tafraoute; On the MS6 piste stayed here overnight after being sand blased on the MS6 piste, excellent people and food, a great little stop over, toilets/showers OK, asked to pay nothing as I was taking a broken part to Zagora for them, like I say a great little place with great Moroccan hospitality.

That waypoint above is not so well formatted - sends you to the Philippines.

N30° 40.105 W04° 41.147


I think in that part of Morocco a waypoint (or just asking someone) is more useful than an address.
