Management is very friendly and helpful. Great breakfast. Incredible view, nice deck, great location at Lighthouse and near east entrance to park. Lots of parking. Free wifi easy to access. Motel Unit #14 on end nearest office. Room not well lit, except over beds. Very very small room, two burner stove top with miniature sink. Challenging space to prepare any... More

When we arrived at this motel we were greeted in English which of course is a bonus when in Quebec. Our room was very clean and had everything we needed to prepare our meal. I was however very surprised at the size of the room. We had two beds which did not leave any room for a night table, a... More

What Sarah A, 2keys1trip and even lasteve told it all. The view was spectacular, the breakfast was choices of cereal, toast (bread and bagels), apples, coffee, tea, but we did have home made muffins one day of our 5 nights there. Enjoyed the campfire and BBQ out front and sitting on the large deck. Location to everything in area the... More

We stayed 2 nights at this motel in early August and were very pleased with our stay. The rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable. The BBQs were a nice feature to allow you to cook your own meals, which we did both nights benefiting from all the local poissoneries in the area. Stock up before you arrive as it... More

This property is a small roadside drive-up motel. If you are looking for more than that - go elsewhere. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. Our room had a small fridge and table with two chairs, closet, TV, and a queen size bed. The 3 piece bath was a small stand alone shower stall, sink on the wall... More

This motel has one thing and only one thing going for it-location, location, location. It is located almost directly under the lighthouse on Cap de Rosiers (about 1/2 hr from Gaspe town) and also sits about 3 mins (car) from the north entrance to the Forillon National Park. Sitting outside your motel room, you have the lighthouse (meters away) on... More

We were going to stay here but the price quoted was higher than listed online. We are English speakers but could hear the desk person (owner?) quote a lower price in French on the phone to someone else. We took a look at the room; seemed to have almost no ventilation and faces the road (noisy). We ended up staying... More

Hello, i think that before you say something like this to the world you must be sure of what you’re saying, first of all I’m very honest and I negotiate with people from around the world so I have no interest of making different price to anyone or different from my own website, if I was on the phone with...

We were very fortunate to spend 2 nights at this motel on a recent Canada Day weekend trip to Gaspe. Even though we arrived late at night (~10pm), our room was still available and all set to go. The room was clean and spacious, perfect for 2 people (1 of those being a notorious over-packer). We rented a room with... More

Thank you so much for taking time to make such a nice comment, I must say that the very hot temperature is unusual here, but we will improve our rooms with ceiling fan & add a window on the back wall. Thank you for being here Alain More

I will agree the host of this motel goes out of his way to welcome guests. The best thing this motel has going for it is the location - the views are out of this world. We happened to stay on what was probably the hottest night in July and the rooms only have one tiny window that will open... More

My family stayed here for one night while touring the Gaspe region and absolutely loved it! The view of the lighthouse is spectacular and the host is simply amazing! The national park is next door with tons of scenery and hiking. Don't miss this location!
