What a great place to relax! the hotel in located in Sainte-Foy. The atmosphere was wonderful. After a long day of walking around and touring the city, we winded down at the pool area. They have a Nordic Spa in the pool area for everyone to enjoy. No appointments needed only if you want a massage or service before or...

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. !!

We recently stayed at the Hotel Universel in Quebec city for a basketball tournament at the Université Laval. We chose this hotel for its convenient location as it was located right in across the street from the sports complex. We were then able to walk to the games or to get food at the Pyramid where they have a number...

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. Staff very pleasant, convenient...

Great location, very nice pool and spa area. We really enjoyed the massage therapy offered in the NeoVee spa located in the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. However, the plumbing was really in poor condition. The hallways were dirty and need some updating. The check-in and check-out was excellent and the common areas are really nice. Parking is...

Plenty of free parking, not too far by car to downtown and accessible to highways for out of town trips. Located in college area with casual dining and shopping nearby. Nearby convenience store has ATM. Nearby small grocery had the best prices on maple syrup we found anywhere. Quiet neighborhood.

The staff was very friendly and very accommodating considering that I don't speak French. I only thing was we had to ask a few times for clean towels. But I would go back to the Hotel in a heart beat.
