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!

This Motel is amazing! Great by the owner immediately, so warm and welcoming! A beautiful colourful suite with a well appointed kitchen, full fridge, stove, microwave, table and chairs! Two double beds, dresser, and full closet! Great bathroom, lots of towel! Spotless! Outside there was access to BBQ's, picnic tables and chairs outside each room!
On the edge of Rimouski, the East end, right next to Lighthouse, Museum of The Empress of Ireland and the Cold War, Canadian Submarine! Great place to walk! Quiet beach front area!
Suggestion if you don't want to drive after a day of travel stop at the Metro, IGA or Maxi and buy food! Also a great convenience store nearby with fresh items! Relaxing, would love to have stayed longer. This was a refreshing experience and would give Fannie and her hard work a Five Star Plus rating!
A Great place to stay and see the beautiful sites! Thank you!

Room Tip: Upstairs has a better view! But I like main floor!

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.

Un grand merci d'avoir écris cet avis!!!! Je trouve votre description très juste! Les chambre sans cuisine sont petites mais bien équipées. Elles comprennent un mini frigo, cafetière, café, salle de bain complète, internet sans fil, TV avec câble et une superbe vue. La décoration, réalisée par ma mère, est unique et différente dans chaque chambre! ET l'internet est effectivement TRÈS rapide. C'est mon conjoint (technicien en informatique) qui a instauré un système digne des grandes entreprises!

A big thank you for writing this review! I think your very accurate description! The room without a kitchen are small but well equipped. They include a mini fridge, coffee maker, coffee, bathroom, wireless internet, cable TV and a great view. The design, by my mother, is unique and different in every room! AND the internet is actually VERY fast. This is my partner (computer technician) which introduced a system worthy of big business!

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 though.

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 even offered free bicycles for our use.In the front yard, we had our coffee while relaxing in a traditional Canadian double swing, a happy respite while taking in the views. And we received excellent advice on grocery stores; a fantastic bakery in Le Bic, a town worth seeing on its own; and country roads to explore to see the famous Gaspe farms. This location and this particular lodging are a perfect marriage of comfort and stunning landscapes. Fannie has done an outstanding job. Thank you!

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.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the light house

Our stay over the labour day week-end was just great. This motel is ideally located, clean, and peaceful.
We had a room with kitchen in the older part and we had plenty of space , including all we needed to prepare our meals. A BBQ is available, there are chairs in a small backyard with an outside fireplace and plenty of wood.
The only thing I would improve are the curtains that do not shield the sun, so if you want to sleep past sun rise, it becomes difficult.
Overall, just great value for the money, I will definitively go back there when I am in the area.
