We stayed at this hotel for only one night and was glad it wasn't longer. Pros: - great location, it's right by the water so you can have a nice walk and view; there were a few rowing teams practicing that day so it was quite fun to watch - only half an hour from La Mauricie National Park Cons:...

On Hotels.com, found this place for $84/night. Well worth it. Very courteous young lady at reception ('Melina'). Room was a bit tired, but good value. Across from the water, nice setting and close to tons of restaurants. Recommend 'Deux Cingles'.

Great location on the St. Maurice river. Attended the annual Quebec Podiatric at this hotel which had excellent conference facilities. As many of the reviews say, some of the rooms are sub-par but the newly renovated rooms are excellent. Good value for the price. I think the hotel got short-ended on whoever painted these renovated rooms as they did a... More

We just spent a 2 night-stay at the Auberge and all I have to says is that their service to our soporate event was excellent. The Sales Manager Sge excel in what she does.

I booked this hotel based on its location. I needed a place to stay in Shawinigan and the price was right. After I booked at the lowest rate possible for the most basic room, I read some of the reviews here and was immediately regretting my choice. I should not have been concerned.

A curious property. It seems the second floor has been renovated transforming the rooms into beautiful modern suites while leaving the first floor with rooms akin to something out of your average Super 8. I travelled with a group to this location and as such was able to see a range of rooms on both floors. Each of us paid... More

I searched online to find a hotel with a pool. Not even the pool met my expectations. The temperature was 78 degrees and was very uncomfortable to swim in. The hot tub was a mobile unit and would only fit 4. We stayed in Room 252 and this is what we got: The hallways look exactly like the inside of... More

Problem free stay, room was spacious, clean, recently renovated, and problem free. Good, free internet, hotel has a small but serviceable indoor heated pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. I was very pleased with my stay. I didn't try the in house restaurant, but you're close to excellent dining options in Shawinigan.

I have stayed at this hotel twice in the last few years. Each time, the really good deal/price is what motivated me to stay there (oh and the pool). The rooms are old, stingy and smelly. Old carpet, mold in the bathroom and smell of smoke. I have to say though, that when I complained about these issues (during my... More

We stayed for one night while visiting the National Park. The hotel room was large, clean and contained a mini refrigerator. Pleasant staff at check-in and check-out. Large and gated free parking. Pool and spa area just average. Nice views from the room.
