We stayed at Motel bienvenue on our way to PEI from Ottawa. Nice area to visit with lots do do around the motel. Unfortunately, our room was on the second floor and there is no elevator. We had to use an old staircase outside and it was so narrow, I could not carry the suitcases but had to drag them... More

My faith in reviews have plummeted on this trip through Gaspe and Charelevoix. And this place is one reason. Really? #1. ??? Our room smelled of smoke. It was made of cardboard so we could hear everything above us and beside (room 14). Beds from hell. Towels that were like dishrags. Honestly. Awful.

Booked this motel sight unseen. Called and Patsy told us to go on the motel website and we saw our room. It was only a one night stay, but we really should have stayed 2. Comfortable queen-size bed, large sectional sofa (which opened into another bed) and fully equipped kitchen. Spotless clean. Price was extremely reasonable. They have bikes and... More

The Motel Bienvenue is located right beside the Pointe-au-Père lighthouse, the Empress of Ireland museum and the HMCS Onondaga submarine. There aren't very many places you can climb on board a submarine, or climb up a historic Art Deco lighthouse, so this is a great place to stay for a few days while you explore the neighborhood. There's also a... More

We stopped here for only one night during our roundtrip. They accepted our dog, we got a huge, charming, fully equipped apartment. The host was very nice, kind and helpful. The motel is located near the lighthouse and a huge submarine. I would go back anytime.

Based on the excellent reviews Motel Bienvenue had received from other trip advisor members, we stopped in without reservations @ 7 on a Saturday night. Unfortunately all the rooms were already taken, but the woman at the desk was extremely kind in helping us find other accommodations in a nearby community. So, based on that experience alone (and the vibe... More

Stayed here while traveling through the Gaspé. The motel is about 10 minutes drive east of Rimouski town, just off the 132. Room was clean and comfortable, the bed was good, and the motel is sited out near the lighthouse at Pointe au Père, so it's pretty quiet. The motel is obviously well cared for, and everyone we met was... More

Pulled in after dark hoping that an address that included Phare (Lighthouse) would be by the sea - and accept dogs as advertised (it does) . And what a delightful find it is!!! Warmly welcomed by the evening hostess. Room #2 was beyond any expectation - cheery, mid-century modern decor - with a well designed airy layout (kitchen pass through... More

A bit out of town, but still a wonderful choice. Large unit, full kitchen unit #3 on ground level at end. Very hard beds. Well lit, but over the bed lights difficult to reach for switching on and off. Good location for a walk. Rocky beach nearby. No restaurants within walking distance. Friendly reception. Free Wifi easy to access. Very... More

Pulled into this motel about 5 p.m. and provided with friendly helpful service from Fannie (so sweet). Got my key and walked over to my unit (with kitchen) - it was fabulous, spacious, and had one of the best stocked kitchens I have ever been provided. I highly recommend this spot. Reasonably priced too!
