We have stayed at the CJ two times in the past. Then, it was a bit "tired" looking, and in need of updating. Still, the service was good, and the place was very clean.
When we returned this time, we found the same very clean lobby and restaurant/bar, but were pleased to find that we were in one of the rooms which had been renovated. This made for a much more modern feel to the place.
While the room did not meet the "luxury" hotel definition, it was spacious, and contained two (comfortable) queen beds, a desk and large LCD TV A comfortable club chair for sitting, and two straight-back chairs (for writing at the desk, etc.) It also had a coffee-maker, and small refrigerator. The bathroom was decent-sized, and nicely appointed with thirsty towels, a few toiletries, and modern sink, fixtures, and shower.
The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, as was the waitress (Diane) at the breakfast buffet. Breakfast buffet was included in our room price, and we were also given a 15% discount card for dinner in the hotel (either in the restaurant or bar).
Our room was on the second floor, facing the parking lot, but it was quiet, and also carefully lit (as in: we had no problem with any outside lighting filtering into the room at night.)
If you want a room with a view of the river, you'll need to ask for that.
There is also a small, outdoor patio in the back, with umbrella tables where you can enjoy drinks and snacks from the bar in nice weather, while viewing the river.
All in all, the CJ is a pleasant place to stay during a visit to Joliette.
Added as a P.S. : The hotel is a non-smoking one, but there are areas for smokers just outside the building, front and back, but far enough away from entrances so as not to offend non-smokers.
