Reviewed 22 October 2015 via mobile

I stayed in one on the suits on the first floor. The hotel hall ways are nothing special, old looking carpet, not abundantly bright either.

The room had a few nice features to it. The suit had a gas fire place, a deep air jet tub, walk in shower with 2 extra chest high nozzles, a couch, two chairs, small fridge, a desk and a nice comfortable bed. Overall the room would get 4 stars on its own. Due to the terrible wifi, and water leaking under the door when you take a shower, creating a small puddle every time you get out.
I give the hotel 3 stars.

If you are local and have a nice data plan then the Internet might be okay for you. To give you an example. Facebook would take about a minute to load up. You can forget about using Skype to Video chat home. It would disconnect every 30 seconds due to poor connection.

I have also stayed at Hotel Rimouski (extremely fast internet 15mbs). And Hotel Le Navigator ( okay internet 2mbs)

We stayed there for one night on the recommendation of a friend. We stayed in the newer section at the back. It was very clean and comfortable.

The service was excellent. The lady at the front desk answered all the questions we had, she was very courteous and knowledgeable of the town and its amenities.

The hotel is attached to a Cage au sport restaurant, which is an added bonus. Other than that, there were vending machines and an ice machine, which is always a plus. There's also a gas station right next to the hotel, so there's always snacks and alcohol in the convenience store there.

We loved it, there are a lot of shops and restaurant nearby. You're not in the core of town, however, so if you're looking to walk to the St. Lawrence or walk through town, it's not the best hotel for that.

There was free WIFI that was accessible in our room.

Overall, it was a great hotel.

Thank Myriam S
