In Fes we spent a night in Hôtel Dalila & Ranna, in bab oued zhoun, cheap but clean, close to the medina there is a place in front where you can let your bike at a small park for mopeds with a guardian ( negociate the price ).
In Marrakech we stayed at Hotel Toulousain ( I'm living near to Toulouse ) cheap and clean too, they are hotels well known by backpackers.

Toulousian - Marrakech

I can reccommend the Touliousian in Marrakech having stayed there earlier this year. The accom is basic with own bathroom and reasonably clean. There is a courtyard where the bike will be safe. Some of the Ibis hotels have secure parking so worth checking them out; you can expect European standards and prices (about 50 Euros per night) some have bar and pool so your g'friend should be happy.
have fun !
