Motel Ritz
Ranked #11 of 26 Hotels in Gatineau
Reviewed June 19, 2012

I stayed at Motel Ritz twice in the last month. The new owner is friendly, helpful and he is working hard to improve his motel in every way. Both times I stayed in a room which had been totally renovated: fresh paint, all new furniture, bathroom, porcelain tile floors, tv, bed and mattress. My colleague stayed in an unrenovated room which was simple but very clean and with a new mattress. Very good value.

This motel has just been sold and is under some renovations at present, The room are being freshly painted and floors are being replaced by porcelain tiles. Mattresses have been changed and even furnitures are being replaced. The new owner is really updating the motel of what it used to be. I go to the motel at least once every 2 months and stay for a few nights. It is a friendly little motel. The staff is polite and very helpfull.

Room Tip: The rooms are all on 1 level,During the day you have sun all day. Smaller rooms have only 1 shower b...

I have been in Ritz two weeks ago. At first, I must say that I didn't expect to have what I waited for. But after checking-in and getting into my room, I was surprised. Actually It was beyond my expectations. I mean for a low price, You won't be expecting to see such a cozy home-feel clean room. I didn't mention the friendly room service who was ready 24/7 in offering almost everything i asked for. Moreover, what i really liked, is its location few minutes from the beach, pubs and restaurants that i was advised to visit by my friends. I must thank Ritz and specially its new management for making my trip successful and affordable.
P.S: I advise everyone to go there and have a cup of cocoa at midnight while watching a good black and white movie!!

Motel Ritz is a hole. The prices have gone up while the service and quality of the rooms have gone down. It seems that the Motel takes the money but refuses to put it back into maintaining the place. The bed linen was littered with cigarette burns though all the rooms say no smoking. Thus this presents two problems, either they are using linen that is so old and they are too cheap to replace it or that they continue to allow smokers to smoke. Either way it sucks. The walls were a minor abstract masterpiece in the making as scuff marks, missing paint pockmarked the landscape. The electrical wires that were left exposed from the wall are a nightmare in the making if you have kids (Really do not go here if you have kids). The walls in the bathroom, including the tub were chipped which means mold. The dirty fridge with dirty ice is also a concern. I recognize that Motel Ritz is a "you get what you pay for" type of place, but a little decency that it use to carry itself with is gone. The gruff front counter service that seemed to be more than willing to take a deposit of $50 for a remote, held the money hostage for 10 minutes while the maid checked the room. I told the guy it was a deposit for the remote, not the room, he said "too bad". The room was fine, I got the money back, but the way the situation was handled was less than impressive. The location to the casino, old Hull and Gatineau clubs is the only positive to the Motel Ritz. This one positive is clearly all washed away, especially when there has to be a better place right nearby that does not make your skin crawl when you leave. Au revoir to the Ritz.
