The Valois offers shelter, a tasty restaurant and enjoyable swimming in the river. It was recommended to us by friends who have been going there for years, and it's a good place to stop for the night on a road trip.

This place was ok for someone not looking for luxury. The room we had was steps away from the water which was very nice for swimming or fishing. It certainly needs to be updated but if you're not picky then it works. We were out swimming, fishing and sightseeing most of the time so it didn't really matter that the... More

The room we had was way too pricy for what it was. It was very old and in need of serious updating! The carpet was all stained and old, it smelled old and very used. This was not our first time at this motel and the rooms were all the same - expensive, old and worn and needed some really... More

Knowing that we weren't booking the Ritz, we opted to get the most expensive room offered expecting it to be half decent. What we got was a stuffy room with dirty windows that don't open, a loud air conditioner, and filthy carpets. The owners and staff are very nice, the location amazing for access to the river, and the restaurant... More

We arrived late and the room was ready, warm (winter), comfortable, with an amazing view. The restaurant was having difficulty with their fryer so no fried food until the morrow but whose waistline needs it? Food was fresh, excellent, service quick, non-irritating and efficient. Room (double in the 60's) was clean, every bit as good as some so called 4... More

Stayed at Valois in the Rooms by the River in the 60's room and the carpets where dirty the chairs where stained. It smelled like smoke and was full of dust. The bathroom was passable and the beds where clean. But the noise from the fan in the bathroom was horrible and the air conditioning was not working properly, the... More

A good meal served up by genuinely friendly and interested staff can make up for long hours on the road. On Rte 17 that means Valois in Mattawa. You have to have faith on this -- the building is old, the restaurant floors are a little uneven -- but this is a very good place for travelers of all ages.... More

The outside of the building looks like a run-down road side motel, if I didn't know about it from way back when I was a kid I never would have stopped there. Once inside the panoramic view of the Ottawa river is overwhelming, the service is fast and friendly. The menu is huge and everything on it is consistent and... More

Nothing has changed at Valois's Restaurant. The floor still slopes. The service is still small town basic. The ceiling is still varnished chip board and the view of the Ottawa River is still absolutely beautiful. Everything is clean, especially the carpets and the windows. There appears to be newer carpet, arborite tables and padded pub style armchairs, but it kinda... More
