I stayed here because I needed somewhere convenient that was close to the airport and with good access to downtown, plus something no more than $100.00 per night. This place fits the bill. Based on hotel alone, its a 2.5 Star establishment; rooms are spacious and I found the beds comfortable and it was clean. Free WiFi in all the...

Thank you for taking a few minutes to write your comments on Tripadvisor. For the emergency alarm, maybe our employee did not inform you properly. We are currently doing a lot of renovations in the hotel and the workers go through that door really often. We decided to disable the alarm on the door to not disturb our clients every...

I was looking for an hotel in Quebec city and was attracted by the nice pictures...For once, I forgot to check the reviews. The room are dirty, ugly and service was bad. They had no water bottle available. They pretend to be a 3 stars...They maybe deserve one. AVOID this hotel!

The photos have some close and creative cropping - you can't say they lie- they just are not totally true. When we arrived we came to an overworked check in clerk who in a bit of time got us checked in. The hotel - and the rooms - have a smell that I can't describe, but I'm glad to leave...

Great place to stay, you can rent snowmobiles from Jean Morneau and they will deliver them and pick them up at the hotel can not ask for better service. The pool and Hot tub are fantastic, if you have children they can go on the water slide. I would stay here again. !!

Very nice pool and facilities. There's a Boston Pizza inside the hotel is very convenient. The hotel room was very nice though the bed was a little soft. Was quiet at times though some people were quite loud.

Hotel Universel is usually a good value fr the money but this hotel. The hotel has been under serious renovations and unfortunately it's not yet completed. If you get a new rooms, it's really good, but there are still a lot of very average rooms. Clean, but bad mattresses, rare electrical outlets, hallways that need restorations.
