4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We've stayed here several times in our trips from Toronto area to Saint John, being about 1000 kms. This place is a step into the past, as it looks the same as it did decades ago. A simple strip parallel to the St. Lawrence River. The rooms are spotlessly clean, if a tad small, with the back units having breathtaking... More

We stayed here two times, once on our way to the Gaspe, and again on the way back. We were very pleased both visits. Had the same room. Ask for one of the back rooms with a beautiful view of the water. Very hospitable owners. The room and bathroom was A1 clean. Small sized room, but but still very inviting.... More

We stayed here on our way to Gaspe last week. As soon as they realized by our very broken french, that we did not speak french, they switched to english easily. The view from the rooms along the St Lawrence were amazing. The owners helped us find great pizza and the pool stayed open a little longer so our kids... More

Old fashionated motel but clean with a kind service. Take the rooms facing the river: you'll have an incredible sunset/rise. Location is great: apart of the main road with a couple of restaurants nearby.

This is good motel accommodation with just a few shortcomings. We had a large room overlooking the St Lawrence with chairs on the patio outside with which to enjoy the view. The room had two queen sized beds, television, fridge, small table and four upright chairs. Hanging space and storage facilities were adequate. The bathroom was a reasonable size with... More

A pleasant surprise with rooms backing directly on the St Lawrence river and mountains. Super clean, modern decor, updated bath, queen bed and well priced. English speaking owner was very pleasant and helpfull. A great place in a charming town.

I recommend this motel to those who want a super clean room, very reasonable prices and a fantastic view of the St. Lawrence. The owners are very nice and dedicated to serve their customers. There are picnic tables and a few double-gliders available. All this in front of this beautiful view. This was my second stay and certainly not the... More

Rivière du Loup is about half way on our two day trip to/from Toronto/PEI. Vieux Fanal was well rated on Trip Advisor. Not far from the TCH( but far enough), good restaurants within walking distance, lots more within a 10 minute drive. Basic room, spotlessly clean bathroom, outdoor pool, less than $90/ night,....gorgeous view of the St.Lawrence River & mountains... More

This room was okay, but nothing to write home about. Furnishings and bathroom were old and could use some care. Everything was clean enough, but its age made for nor the best impression. It is close to restauarants and shopping and the river view is great on a sunny day..
