Pulled in after dark hoping that an address that included Phare (Lighthouse) would be by the sea - and accept dogs as advertised (it does) . And what a delightful find it is!!! Warmly welcomed by the evening hostess. Room #2 was beyond any expectation - cheery, mid-century modern decor - with a well designed airy layout (kitchen pass through... More

A bit out of town, but still a wonderful choice. Large unit, full kitchen unit #3 on ground level at end. Very hard beds. Well lit, but over the bed lights difficult to reach for switching on and off. Good location for a walk. Rocky beach nearby. No restaurants within walking distance. Friendly reception. Free Wifi easy to access. Very... More

Pulled into this motel about 5 p.m. and provided with friendly helpful service from Fannie (so sweet). Got my key and walked over to my unit (with kitchen) - it was fabulous, spacious, and had one of the best stocked kitchens I have ever been provided. I highly recommend this spot. Reasonably priced too!

Great location. We just stayed for one night enroute elsewhere. Small but very clean and functional. Tastefully decorated. Very fast Internet. Right next to the Empress of Ireland museum (worth a visit). Very friendly and helpful front desk.

I guess you would call this an average "Motel". Did have a kitchen that was nice for reheating diner. Stayed one night, just passing thru. Very nice at the front desk. Beds were uncomfortable, room had strong smoke smell, shower was like a fire hose, Water everywhere. Did find a really good Restaurant for Diner while driving to the Motel... More

This motel was one of the best stays we have had in decades of world travel. The staff and owner could not have been more helpful. For a small fee, they even did our laundry. We saw clothes lines where the breezes off the river made the sheets dance, adding to the homespun delightful flavor of this unique spot. They... More

This motel has the best location in Rimouski - on the St Lawrence shore, with a priceless view of the Pointe-au-Pere lighthouse. For 75, tax included, the rooms are well equipped and comfortable. The reception staff are really friendly & do everything possible to make your stay comfortable. They provided an excellent recommendation for dinner nearby.
