Stayed at this hotel last weekend with 2 other families for a quick getaway. While the location is outstanding (10 mins from St Armand's and Lido beach), the hotel is not. The front staff is rude and unwelcoming. We decided not to sample the complimentary continental breakfast which consisted of cold cereal and milk. Rooms were decent but wear can be seen throughout. The outside doors to the room hallways are kept propped open so security is a concern. We kept our room door bolted and with the burglar bar engaged. One of the families in our party found bedbugs in their room. Yikes! I guess you get what you pay for. This is nothing but a cheap hotel that is far from being "value". Stay away!
