I was traveling with my husband and young daughter late at night, trying to find a decent roadside hotel around Quebec City to stay and break up the drive to our final destination. There were really no suitable places on the way... and we worried that it would be too late to stay at one of the smaller auberges. Luckily we spotted the Auberge Baker, well lit and set off from the highway.
The price is what you would expect for a regular hotel but with much more character. Beautiful exposed beams and brick, simple country decor. Nice, new bathroom with exposed wood beams. We paid about $125 for a room with a king and a double bed, and with breakfast included. The inn is far enough away from the highway that the traffic isn't a problem, however, you can hear muffled sounds from other guests and staff downstairs. There's a small kitchen/sitting area outside the room for guests to meet, though I would be concerned about noise.
Breakfast was very good. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and a large buffet. There were muffins, fresh bread, cheeses, meats, fruit, cereal and you cook your own eggs on a hot plate.
I'm not sure why someone would choose this as a base to see the area.. it's not particularly close to downtown Quebec City and there is nothing to do on the property. However, for a stop on the way it's perfect.
