This review is from: Lonely Planet Morocco (Country Travel Guide) (Paperback)
This book has been really useful for suggesting accommodations- if you can find them! The maps are absolutely terrible. My wife and I travel for a living, navigating through cities every day, and these maps were misleading and incorrect at best. The book was published in Feb 2009, and we traveled in late August 2010 so it seems impossible that roadwork has changed the cities this much in 18 months. We went to about 8 different cities and had problems in all of them, climaxing with a 2 1/2 hour search for our hotel in Fes, which we never did find. In defense of the book, google maps had a lot of trouble in Fes as well- so lonely planet isn't alone- but there are basic mapping errors, like right turns when you actually need to make a left to get to a hotel. To close, giving credit where credit is due, I found a lot of useful advice and info, and write-ups about the hotels, riads, and restaurants were pretty spot on- we just never made it to half of them!
