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!

Two double beds, dresser, and full closet! Great bathroom, lots of towel! Spotless! Outside there was access to BBQ's, picnic tables and chairs outside each room! On the edge of Rimouski,... More

Great location. We just stayed for one night enroute elsewhere. Small but very clean and functional. Tastefully decorated. Very fast Internet. Right next to the Empress of Ireland museum (worth a visit). Very friendly and helpful front desk.

I guess you would call this an average "Motel". Did have a kitchen that was nice for reheating diner. Stayed one night, just passing thru. Very nice at the front desk. Beds were uncomfortable, room had strong smoke smell, shower was like a fire hose, Water everywhere. Did find a really good Restaurant for Diner while driving to the Motel... More

This motel was one of the best stays we have had in decades of world travel. The staff and owner could not have been more helpful. For a small fee, they even did our laundry. We saw clothes lines where the breezes off the river made the sheets dance, adding to the homespun delightful flavor of this unique spot. They... More
