There are several hotels at the Marseille Airport - which is actually in Marignane, about 30km from Marseille - so it's far more convenient to stay at the airport, especially if you have an early morning flight and/or a rental car to return. The Best Western is the closest of them all and so very convenient. We were able to fuel up our rental car, return it, and walk to the Best Western right from the rental office - literally on the other side of a large parking lot - all within a small area in a very short period of time. You could walk to the airport as well, but the hotel does offer on-demand shuttle service.
Our room was surprisingly spacious for a European hotel, nicely decorated and very clean. The bed was comfortable and the linens soft and inviting. There is a mini-bar in the room, a small desk to work at if needed and television reception was excellent on the nicely sized TV. (They also have a computer right adjacent to the front desk to handle your airline check-in and printing of boarding passes.)
My only complaint was the restaurant. The food was good, but it took over an hour to get our meal during a lunch period that wasn't very busy. We watched as every table around us was slowly but surely served and when we finally asked about our food, the woman who was obviously in charge of the dining room got right on our waiter and we had our food within minutes - delivered by a very surly waiter at that point - I don't think she was too happy that her boss got on her about our meal. less
