First the one negative: it's surrounded by strip clubs and sex shops, so if you have kids or are easily offended, don't stay here!
Now the outrageous number of positives: if you book ahead with the web deal it's insanely cheap compared to anything else. It's located walking distance to a huge number of tourist attractions, and it's .5 block from the Metro station if you need to go further. The staff have been very friendly, and finding out it was our first trip to Montreal have made sure we knew about all the places we should go see. Parking is right around the corner in a guarded lot, and only costs $12 CAD a day. The rooms are lived in, but clean, with a sink and towel racks in the room itself. The bathrooms are huge and clean and well lit. The heat works very well. There is free Wi-Fi with a strong signal.
It is an area that gets a little rowdy at night, so sleeping with the windows open is definitely out, but each room has an A/C in the window.
Oh, and bring your own alarm clock - that isn't provided. All the other usual stuff is.
I would definitely stay here again, if coming to this area.

Each hotel is in a separate building linked by a common lobby and reception. A single entry serves both hotels in a 4 storey centennial building.All our rooms and studios are equipped with an air-conditioner and cable television.
