We stayed in this hotel while there was some re-construction work happening. But no matter, it didn't affect our stay. However, if aesthetic value is what you are going for, this motel is not it (it is more of a motel, than a hotel).
The rooms and common areas are cozy and very clean. The front desk staff speak fluently in English and French, are friendly and have great recommendations for places to check out for a fun night out. Also, there was an issue with the plumbing in the toilet, which was fixed promptly.
There was also confusion with regards to our booking and we were not registered in their database, so technically we never were booked! Luckily I had the printout of my reservations and it was sorted out and the front desk managed to get us the rooms, quickly, politely and efficiently.
The biggest negative point is that this hotel is pretty far away from any tourist attractions, mainly in the Old Quebec area and you have to drive another 15mins from the nearest highway exit. Luckily we had a car with us, so we could drive into Old Quebec within 25-30mins. But for those relying on the transit, I would recommend that you are better off staying in a hotel/bed and breakfasts inside/near the Old Quebec area, of which there are plenty.
