They are so friendly and accommodating. The decor in each room is different but stylish and functional. The location is only a 3-min walk to the rocks on the banks of the St. Lawrence. They are open all year-round. I first stayed in their handicap-accessible room which has space for a wheelchair in the shower. My second and most recent stay was in the semi-detached cabin at the back of the property, making for a very private and quiet space. There's a variety of rooms for a variety of needs in three different buildings. Some rooms have kitchenettes, which was ideal in the Covid environment. Bring your own groceries, cook what you want, when you want. Those with the kitchenettes were well-equipped with what you need to prepare meals. They even provide Real ground coffee for a fresh brew every morning. And they even provided Q-tips! Some have dual balconies front and back. Some face the sunrise, others face the lighthouse as the sun sets behind it. Some rooms can sleep 6 with well concealed hide-a-beds. The mattresses are comfortable enough without being the atypical over-stuffed hotel beds. There are a lot of English channels to watch and you can hook up your Roku to watch Netflix, etc. The wifi was flawless. There were no landline phones in the rooms I stayed in but who needs that. There's a gas bbq and a brick-lined fire pit. The staff were very friendly, in a way that differentiates them from the more 'corporate' front desk types. I found it to be more genuine. If you were to go out to explore the region as I did every day, (Highly recommend 👌), you wouldn't know that the service had been to the room until you noticed that garbage had been emptied and the dish towels replaced. And if you did meet them, it's because they are checking to see if you want fresh towels or anything else. Frankly, this IS what the big hotel chains have lost: that honest personal interaction that always makes you feel like your chatting about the weather. I honestly have nothing negative to say about this place and it will be my Go-To until I move to the region.

Clean rooms (if not the most up to date). Very friendly staff, they let us keep our truck and trailer there while we rode our Motorcycles around Gaspe area even though they don't have a big parking lot. I think they made an exception for us as it was kind of quiet and not quite the busy season. Overall great value for the money especially if oyu need a small kitchen (we didn't use ours). It is right beside the museum, light house and submarine that you can tour.

Great motel for the price! Clean, well maintained, and right by the lighthouse and submarine... facing the St. Lawrence.. The front desk receptionist Fanny was great! Very helpful and engaging. The rooms were a decent size, great beds for sleeping and very quiet. I highly recommend this place, we stayed here on our way to Gaspe and we would go back.

Nice little hotel, room with kitchenette, our room was a large spacious room but friends room was extremely small both very clean and well appointed with everything except a telephone. This motel right next door to the Empress of Ireland and Hanger 14 museums. Bought tickets at Motel for the three acivities and saved 9$ per person. The submarine is a must see. No restaurants close close by but a 5-7 car ride.
