We decided last minute to go to Montreal and Le Roberval was one of the only hotels available. Was a little worried after reading some of the reviews but decided to give it a chance.
Got there much earlier than we could get into our room, but were checked in and given access to the parking garage ($15/day). The parking garage is behind the hotel across the street - there are a few spots in front of the hotel for you to load and unload. The parking garage is very tight - if you're driving anything bigger than a small SUV you might be in trouble. While we waited we walked down to Old Montreal - only about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The front desk staff were very helpful, took the time to show us everywhere we wanted to go on a map.
The room wasn't bad at all - a little old but more like a small apartment than a hotel room. Very clean as well. Had no toiletries in the bathroom but went to the front desk and were given them immediately. Shower is more like a water cannon, but at least the water was hot, and it's better than having no pressure. The kitchen has dishes for you to use - there is a sign posted informing you of a $25-$30 charge if you don't wash them yourself. Air conditioner is in the "living room" with the TV (only 2 English channels) and a pull-out. It is very loud, but turning it off or shutting the door was not an option as it was pretty hot that day. Bedroom has no TV in it. Bed is pretty hard, not very comfortable at all unfortunately.
We were on the corner of the hotel at a pretty busy intersection, so there is traffic noise as well as a hospital close by. That didn't bother us too much, the bigger problem is that the inside hotel walls are pretty thin, and there were other guests who thought nothing of screaming in the hallways at 3 in the morning.
There is wireless internet in the rooms, they give you the password at the front desk. Seemed to work pretty well. Continental breakfast included as well, same as you would expect. Toast, cereal, bagels (Montreal has the best bagels!), fruit, yogurt, coffee and tea.
All in all, a pretty good hotel. Couldn't beat the price. It was a little more room than we needed for one night but would be good for a longer stay.
