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

This property takes "cheap and clean" to the next level! The rooms are actually fine - it's a motel - and the grounds are very well kept. Everything from the outdoor pool to the parking lot is spotless. (No scary bathrooms here - cleaner than my own!) And the owners are obviously involved in every aspect of the operation: they...

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
