Nicest motel I've ever stayed in! The rooms are large, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, and lots of little extras like an ice machine. We opted for the second floor and didn't have a view of the bay, but still enjoyed sitting out on our patio with a glass of wine. The staff we dealt with were friendly and welcoming. Short... More

Room of a very high standard. Breakfast served in different building, a self service buffet. Very cold boiled eggs with hot toast is not a good idea. Receptionist should have advised us that the restaurant we booked was a long way out of town, we had a hefty taxi bill!

I found this small hotel on Trip Advisor recently. The price was good and so were the reviews. It's in an area of La Malbaie that came as a surprise since many of the best restaurants in town are a short walk from the hotel on Rue Richelieu. Check in was quick and the staff person was friendly. His English... More

We found the second story room to be fresh and clean, with a gorgeous view out over the river. The little balcony was just right for enjoying the view and for letting the fresh air into the room. There is some street noise, but we slept very soundly. Easy walking to several restaurants too.

Older hotel/motel, well maintained and nicely decorated for the season. Checking in and out was a breeze. They offer a breakfast for a small fee ($3.50) very basic. Location was good within the town, excellent cafe next door. Unfortunately we had issues with the noise level coming from other rooms. We could handle it earlier in the evening but when... More

Very friendly and easy check in. We had a room facing the river with a tiny little balcony. It was a bit noisy but we didn't mind because we loved the atmosphere.
