Me and my family stayed here as a base for a whale watching trip and the seaplane trip over the St. Lawrence river - it was great; a gem. Other reviews point out the functional nature of the rooms which I agree with but they were clean, bathrooms fine; we had highway side rooms which weren't that noisy. It isn't... More

Motel le vacancier is very convenient to the whale-watching tours at Croisieres AML. We stayed in a cabin with two bedrooms and a kitchenette. It was old but clean. The riverside was only a short walk and a staircase away. The sunset was very beautiful. We also ate at the motel's restaurant for supper and breakfast. The food was simple... More

Slightly confusing choosing from the menu with limited French. Although we wished to choose a main from the plat du jour menus which was individually priced. This was 'not allowed' strangely. However, the food was ok and fairly priced. My husband had salmon fillet which was cooked with syrup and sesame, while I had a salmon penne. Both were fine... More

After a disappointing day of whale-watching, we went to check in. They had given away our cottage and switched us to a highway side room. After discussing it with the rude front desk staff, they gave us a waterside room. The room was in need of updates but clean. After travelling to Tadoussac for dinner, I wish we has stayed... More

We stayed exactly one night and are very glad that was all the time we had there. Definitely a mediocre -but startlingly expensive- property with tired rooms, scratched walls and no decorations to speak of. Staff were acceptable but warned me that only one key was available and that if I inadvertently locked myself out, there would be a "hefty"... More

This adorable little hotel is perched on a cliff over looking the vast Saint Lawrence river. Panoramic views from the cozy deck behind each bungalow or from the picture window in the motel units. We just loved it here, and stayed an extra night. The rooms are nothing fancy, but the location makes up for it. A comment from a... More

Nothing fancy about the room, but it does have a great view. There are glider chairs and a walkway down to the Beach. Not really a beach for swimming, but... The managers speak English. The rooms are clean. I could not get WiFi in the room itself. Had to sit outside.

A perfect location. We requested a room with a view of the water, and had the best with a small balcony. It was the last night in the season but they were very accomodating. The room was clean with a large bathroom but no real luxuries to it. The heating was fine but felt that the overhead heater lamp was... More
