“Short Enjoyable Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

My colleague and I came to Val d'Or last Wednesday to visit a mine in Malartic the following morning. The Quality Inn across the street was all booked up so we chose this hotel instead. Our rooms were on the second floor.
Upon entering my room, I could see two clean Queen beds. The bathroom interior looked great and the towels and glasses were well organized.
The sleep was comfortable except the air conditioner was pretty loud.
We didn't get to have breakfast because we had to leave at 5. (Complimentary Continental Breakfast doesn't start until 530)
Overall, it was a nice stay and the receptionists were very friendly.

The full name is L'Escale Hotel Motel Suite. What started as a roadside motel 50 years ago is now the best hotel and best restaurant in Val d'Or. It has grown to 2 storeys with 70 rooms and 14 suites. The ground floor rooms have motel-type access to your car. Free wi-fi internet throughout, free continental breakfast in the bar accross from the lobby. The restaurant also has a full breakfast menu. I stayed 2 nights on business and was very pleased. Quick, pleasant, fully bilingual service at the front desk. There are various sizes of meeting rooms.

Room Tip: I stayed in a far room on the upper floor and it was very quiet.

My wife and i stayed at this Motel/Hotel while on a road trip in Canada.
We stayed for 2 nights and found the motel to be excellant.
The room we were in was on the ground floor of the motel,it was large,spacious,clean and with plenty of comfortable seats to relax on.
The bathroom was large with a very clean large shower cubicle.
The breakfast was a help yourself with plenty of selection on offer.
Overall we would recommend this Motel

As nice as motels get. The restaurant is sort of posh and provides a good menu at reasonable prices. The service is crisp and smart. These ladies are good at what they do. They even have a piano player on Sundays.
The motel is very well cared for and clean and the windows open. (Nice for claustrophobics like me). In fact, if you want to tie a string to your car to make sure it does not get away at night you can do so as the parking is right by the windows, separated by a sidewalk, covered on one side of the motel but not on the other, as I recall. L'Escale and Quality Inn opposite and Forrestel just outside of the east end of town are the three best choices for this kind of accommodation in Val D'Or.

My first visit here, and by the looks of other establishments around town, this is certainly the best bet. The room is very clean and quiet... The bar staff was very friendly and we had an excellent supper at the Cannon restaurant on site.

Room Tip: Book well in advance, we got lucky and got a room because of a cancellation!

Don't let the name "Motel" turn you off this place. It's right across the Quality Inn, ~1.5 km walk from the downtown Val d'Or - however I was quite content with staying at the Escale in the evenings. The restaurant is fantastic and there is a complimentary continental breakfast offered to guests. The breakfast consists of yogurts, muffins, toasts/bagels, hard-boiled eggs, fresh fruit and coffee/teas. The staff are very attentive, rooms are spotless and suprisingly at a very low price - $109/night. My room had a king size bed plus a large sitting area with leather couch and desk.

One small detail to improve - the shower head could be tweaked so the jet doesn't spray in random directions.

Several restaurants are nearby if you find the hotel restaurant pricy: Tim Hortons, Pizza Bella and a chinese restaurant.

Room Tip: Opt for the second floor rather than the 1st and further away from the lobby.

We stayed two nights at this place this June and it was absolutely excellent.
A very warm welcome and reception, efficient and quick.
We had a suite on the first floor which was just what the doctor ordered after a long days' drive.
A lovely lounge area with comfortable sofa and chairs, a dining table, good spacious bedroom and a fabulously well thought out bathroom with a double spa bath, spacious shower and all the rest!
We had drinks in the bar which were served by lovely well trained efficient, friendly staff, who booked us into the restaurant for dinner. Although it was quiet the atmosphere was just right with some locals popping in and out for a beer.
We ate in the restaurant and l cannot compliment enough. Again it was quiet but such a lovely dining room with very attentive staff. A pianist played some of our favourite tunes while we ate the fabulous dinner served to us. It was excellent in every way.
Breakfast was just as good with a great choice.
Exceptional value for money in every way too.
Would definately return to the area, it was so laid back and relaxing and of course would stay at this hotel again and again.
