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

We stayed at the chalets in peak season in August. On the positive side they are in a loveley location but really they are just campsite cabins that should be charged at £50 a night, not double that. They are samll and basic with a telly that came from the 60's and no wifi as promised.

We were grateful that this motel had a cottage available as the original motel we booked had somehow lost our reservation. The owner of motel le vacancier was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed in a very clean small cottage like building, that was divided into three rooms. Our room was in the middle. That meant we could hear everything... More
