We stayed one night on our way to Quebec City from New Brunswick. We were well received and offered a room with a view of the Saint Lawrence river. It was delightful so take your binoculars. I had planned to swim in the pool but the weather was unseasonably cold for that. This is an older style of motel which... More

I read some amazing ratings on Trip Advisor, which is why I chose this motel. I paid $150 because I had a pet (which is more than other places I've stayed). Our pet-friendly room had a bit of a smell to it. We arrived at 6:30 and were leaving at 11am the following morning, travelling from PEI to Ontario. I... More

They are pet friendly with a big lawn outside your door. We were looking for a clean, budget motel and it fit perfectly. Pride... More

Check in was fast and friendly. Room was very clean. Nice that it came with a fridge! Large heated outdoor pool and a great view! Would definitely recommend this motel! I also love the fact that you can park in front of your room and unload your luggage

The motel was very clean through out, from the lobby, rooms, and the pool. Room rates were very fair. The owner had a ton of dining recommendations. Reception was very warm and courteous as well. Definitely a pleasant stay and we will stay again if ever in the area.

We stayed here in a bit of a frantic search for a hotel as the other reservation we initially made ended up being a total disaster. The gentleman at the front desk who checked us in around 10:30pm was so sweet and friendly. The rooms cannot be described as anything other than homey, clean and comfortable. Nice comfy beds and...

My husband and I have stayed here on two occasions (soon to be a third) and have always received a warm and friendly welcome at check-in. After long days of driving, we have slept like babies in a comfortable bed in a quiet room. The bathrooms are very clean and tidy. We have also had the distinct pleasure of eating... More

We stayed here in August 2014 on a long road trip. The view is as spectacular as all the reviews claim. The kids liked the pool a lot and it had a lifeguard. The room was super clean and the shower was good. It was also large and there were chairs to sit outside. There are doors on both ends... More

An old fashioned motel with reasonable rates and clean functional rooms. We've been using this place for years as a stop-over on our way to the Maritimes and have always had a comfortable stay. In the summer they have a lovely pool and early morning coffee is available. The view of the St Lawrence is incredible, you can see the... More

We stayed here 11 years ago and were very pleased to discover that it was still open. Stayed in a unit at the back overlooking the St Lawrence River. The room we were in was quite large. Two double beds, fridge,table and chairs and outside chairs from which to view the river. The room was very clean as was the... More
