I had a difficult time finding an affordable hotel within the walls of Old Quebec for our family of four until I came across Hotel Le Cavalier du Moulin. I pictured our room to be just inside the streetside shuttered windows shown on their website, but it turned out to be through a short alley next door and off the street, providing a quieter stay (except for the brief excitement of arguing workers throwing garbage to the dumpsters from the back stairs of the restaurant next door). Check-in is at the counter of the souvenir shop on the street; a small street adjacent is available for unloading if arriving by car, and parking was $12/day at City Hall a few blocks away. Our second floor room (#12) had a queen bed downstairs with a bathroom (refrig in bathroom), coffee maker in room, and another queen bed in an upstairs room, open to below, with a sink and TV. Because the upstairs was brighter and seemed roomier, we spent most of our time there. The windows overlooked rooftops or the alleyway and could be opened for fresh air. The room was comfortable, a little bit worn, and an excellent location to all areas of Old Quebec and just beyond the gates. Other rooms were located nearby in our narrow hallway, but we never heard noise, and hope that they did not hear us. Our only complaint was that our non-smoking room had a definite history of smoking visitors at some time in the past, and the smell of cigarettes was a bit overwhelming upon entering the room. We'd stay here again if the kids were along, but might try to find something different if we had the numerous options available to a couple.
