We stayed 6 nights at the motel. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. Didn't hear too much noise. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. The motel is very well taken care of. We liked staying there and certainly recomment this motel. The motel is located in the village of La Baie Saint-Paul and it is a perfect place from where to visit the region. In the city center there are restaurants, shops, galleries, basically something for everybody.

This is a great place to stop before hitting the fantastic drive to Tadoussac. A charming well maintained and cosy classic motel. Warm efficient welcome and checkout. Great helpful local information. Within easy walking distance of village centre, pubs, restaurants etc. Highly recommended.

As others have noted, the rooms are very clean,nicely decorated and comfortable with free Wi-Fi, cable TV, breakfast available, etc. The owner, Nicholas, is proudly Swiss and upholds the Swiss reputation for precision and neatness.

`We were touring in September 2012, and stayed at Aux Portes du Soliel. As we left town, our car was front-ended on the hill leaving own and totaled. We spent the day in the Baie St Paul hospital. We called Nicholas (the only person we knew in town) from the emergency room and he immediately set a room aside for us and volunteered to pick us up from hospital, store our bicycles and camping gear until we could arrange transportation/shipping and help us in any way he could. Nicholas made us comfortable and looked after us. He coordinated with both the local police and with the towing company to help us with documentation and arrangements for our luggage. His help was invaluable and well beyond both the typical "Where should we eat tonight?" or anything I would expect from a hotelier.

So exceptionally clean, comfortable rooms and a host who goes beyond all expectations to help customers in need. Two thumbs up!!!

This isn't the five star category, so I'm not going to judge it on that. What I am going to say is that it's a terrifically charming hotel, with a fabulously friendly and accommodating owner who cares. The fundamentals of any hotel is a good bed, a warm shower, and the rest of the stuff is window dressing that usually costs you money. This hotel is very reasonably priced and offers great value. It's location isn't ideal, as it is a 20 minute walk to the main street. The rooms are on the small side. But the beds are good, the showers are good, and it is remarkably inexpensive. Couple that with the charm of the owner who makes you feel well beyond welcome, it's a great place to stay. Highly recommended.

Hello Stephen, Many thanks for your kind review, it is deeply appreciated. I believe you point out some very good points about our place, as we are not a 5*, but we offer a service that a 5* cannot match, as we always fell that our guest must feel like they are @ home. Our reward is to be able to shake hands and have a smile and a happy guest @ the end of his stay and we are trying to make this possible, by small attention and recognition. BTW: Yo've been doing a bit of sightseeing to take a 20 minutes walk from the center to our place don't you ;-) Hope to see you soon @ Aux Portes du Soleil! Pascal & Josée, owners

This motel gives a good price to quality. The rooms are clean and have a refrigerator and microwave. There is a central BBQ. We didn't find a fully equiped kitchen (which can be comfortable if you for stay a longer period).
Motel Aux portes du soleil is located close to the nature reserves (car required).

My friend and I decided to go to Baie St-Paul for two days because we heard many good things about this place. The dates we chose, turned out to be rainy. We didn't book any room online (...and that is fortunately). As soon as we reached Baie St-Paul, we passed by Auberge Aux Portes du Soleil... I am extremely happy that we decided to stop and ask them if they had an available room for two. The manager/owner was amazing enough to offer us a huge room (family room) with an amazing price. The place was so comfy and extremely clean. In addition, there was a nice terrace outside. We were extremely lucky to pass by this place.

After skiing hard at Le Massif, 15-20 minutes drive from the motel, we were always treated very well by the friendly staff. Excellent food, secret recepies from Nicolas`s Mom back in Switzerland,
can`t ask for more after a big day at the ski resort. Rooms are very clean and the motel is well located/walking distance from good bars and bistro/restaurant. I will go back Aux portes du soleil on my next trip to the amazing Charlevoix region

We try to stay at this motel every Winter when visiting the area to ski. Very clean and well managed by Nicolas who is always happy to help with area information, traveling and local suggestions. Rooms are large,very clean and equipped with mini-fridge, free WiFi and hair dryer, etc. and are also spacious which is great for a family or those with ski or cycling gear.

About 10 minutes walk from the centre of town where all the restaurants are and you'll need the walk if you order the table d'hotel at Mouton Noir! The owners were very friendly and gave up lots of advice about the activities and places to go. There is free wifi if you need it. Each room has a table, two chairs and an umbrella outside so it is nice to come and sit in the afternoon. You can also have breakfast there. It is very, very clean! And they welcome motorcyclists so there is a fun array of bikes to check out in the parking lot.
