My husband and I stayed at the Motel du Haut Phare a couple of weeks ago, and were very happy with out choice. The room we stayed in was spacious, comfortable and clean and its interior was cozy (it had recently been renovated).
The location of the motel is ideal: it faces the sea and a stretch of beach where you enjoy long walks (and maybe a swim if the temperature of the water and the weather permits, end of August was chilly for us). The beach is on the opposite side of the street, but the view from the motel is nonetheless beautiful.
The motel is also across the charming lighthouse. I would generally recommend staying in Cap-des-Rosiers. It is a great base to discover the Forillion Park (10 minutes by car to the north entrance and 20 to the south one). Cap-des-Rosiers is a small village, full of charm and tranquil.
The owner recommended a couple of places for lunch/dinner (both outside Cap-des-Rosiers) and both were very good: The cafe of Anse-au-Griffon's cultural centre (20 minutes by car) and Le Baleinier in Cap aux Os (also 20 minutes by car). The fish and seafood were a delight.
We are definitely coming back to explore Gaspe again, and wouldn't want to stay anywhere other than le Motel du Haut Phare.
