Do you enjoy NOT sleeping? We are the hotel for you! Our design team has worked overtime to ensure that you are kept awake during your entire stay. The experience begins with location. We carefully scouted the Tadoussac area and selected a steep hill on the highway next to a ferry terminal. Every twenty minutes, a parade of transport trucks will emerge from the ferry and climb our hill in low gear. If you’re lucky a few trucks travelling the opposite direction will use their engine brakes to descend the hill at random intervals, to keep your brain guessing as to when the noise will begin. The experience continues with the building itself. Our engineering team selected space-age materials focused on acoustic enhancement You will feel like the trucks are right in the room with you! It doesn’t stop there however, the gently sagging walkway to your second-storey room will remind you that our motel is indeed not structurally sound, to give you something to think about while not sleeping. Rest assured in knowing that the quaint-looking inn pictured on our website is not the building you’ll be staying in, our guests only have access to the run-down motel out back. Our furnishings are carefully curated with the insomniac in mind. For only a few dollars extra you can upgrade to one of our family rooms, which includes a futon that creaks loudly any time the occupant moves. This will ensure that the entire family can enjoy the feeling of insomnia. We are confident that this shared sleep deprivation will enhance your vacation for days to come! We have also invested in the most infuriating of technology. You might be tempted to connect to the internet to pass the time while not sleeping. Not here! We tease guests by showing a strong wifi signal, but then make sure it will never connect. Please do come to the front desk to ask about the wifi, and we will tell you for days that a technician is on the way to fix it. Your family will appreciate the extra time spent discussing the cost of the Canadian cellular data plans. There are several extras as well, included at significant charge! Mold on the walls, towel racks dangling from the plaster, toilets that barely flush, a TV that tells you we don’t subscribe to any of the channels you might want to watch, and sixties-inspired decor are all part of the experience. In the morning, you can come down to our breakfast area to imagine what a breakfast might taste like if we served any (but we don’t). Worried that your family might try to depart early to sleep elsewhere? Fear not, as there is no availability anywhere within a day’s drive! This unwanted feeling of captivity is all part of the family roadtrip experience. Come for the whales, stay for the insomnia!…
You do not stay in the building pictured (seems that is the owners accomodation) This is a regular “Bates Motel” all rooms have a view of the parking lot on a busy road The queen room booked was not a queen room it was a double. Bed was Uggg at best ! Bloody noisy from non sleepers above - no sound proofing at all Convenient to local amenities but not priced based on facilities - good job it’s only one night.
Liars!!!! We booked two nights there but had to change our Road trip but cancelled early. Anyway their policy charged us one night! We called and had an agreement that if the rent the room they won’t charge us! Our friend called to book the same room on our behalf few days later and they told them the hotel was fully booked! Now when I call to get refund they told me they never booked the room! They charged us and rebooked the room and kept the money without keeping their word!!! Avoid them they are rude, mean, cheap like their hotel
We would definitely stay there again! Great location, close to the ferry/restaurants/shops. Plus it has a nice view from the river and a welcoming and friendly staff, specially George. Thank you for providing us with such a nice experience !
Pros - close to whale watching and the ferry. Cons - No air conditioning, we had a faulty window. The handle was broken, so not opening or closing. The toilet had a loud water flowing sound 30 minutes after flushing. There was no cold water in the bathroom. We opened the valve under the sink to access the cold water. Reason for the valve being off was because the faucet didn't work and the cold water could not be shut off by it.
