Value
Ideally located in the historic district of Pointe-au-Pic in La Malbaie, the Castel de la Mer Hotel offers easy access to all the major sights and activities that Charlevoix is known for. Only 200 meters from the majestic St. Lawrence River, the hotel is conveniently located at the crossroad of Pointe-au-Pic’s main street and the panoramic Road 362. Nearby, you will find plenty of dining options that are accessible by foot and a small shopping center as well. The Casino de Charlevoix is only a short distance from Le Castel de la Mer, as is the Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu and its renowned golf course. Our strategic position in the heart of Charlevoix makes our hotel the best base point possible for exploring everything the region has to offer. Whether you come to Charlevoix for the whale watching excursions, the beautiful sceneries, the art galleries, the two national parks and their great hiking trails, the ski centers or a snowmobile excursion, you’re always just a short distance away from the main points of interests when you stay at our hotel.

By far the most charming, clean and friendly place we've ever stayed! Everytime we stay, I find more things to love about this place! The pride the owners have really shows. I would give it ALL the stars in the sky for a rating if I could! We've stayed here many times with our kids over the years. Just beautiful ❤️

After 7 days in Gaspesie, we were stopping here on our way home. Glad we chose this place. Lovely reception and very clean. The receptionist gave us restaurant and activities recommendations. The room we had with two queen bed had comfortable mattresses, was extremely clean and sufficiently furnished. The room also had a view of the bay and opened to a shared patio with dining tables and a propane firepit. Highly recommend!

Family of four with young kids (10,5), roadtrip in Saguenay and Charlevoix, August 2020. I didn't expect much of the place and was pleasantly surprised. It's cute, super well located, nice clean rooms, super comfortable bed and pillows. Just a fantastic little Quebec Motel, after visiting, I understand why it's been around forever!

We booked one night in La Malbaie at the last minute due to changes in our travel plans. What a find! This small hotel well deserves the high ratings -our room was above average in quality, comfort and size even compared to Brand hotels of similar ratings. Besides the ample space, there were two comfortable tub chairs around a small table, full kitchenette with plates and utensils, Keurig coffee maker ( pods, sugar and cream included), toaster oven, microwave and mini fridge. There is even a central outdoor BBQ area. Wifi was good, the bed was comfortable, but there are only stairs to reach the second floor. Be sure to request a ground floor if you prefer. All staff were very friendly. The optional cold buffet breakfast ($4 each) was great value and included boiled eggs and yoghurt, fruit, breads, cereals and pastries, with a selection of spreads ( cream cheese, peanut butter, jams and even creton spread- a regional favourite). I was sad to move on to our next destination- I could happily stay here for several days visiting the region. Since the hotel was sold out , I assume others have discovered this treasure too.

Stayed for two nights. Room was spotless. We had a small kitchen that served us well. Staff was friendly and helpful. Well situated for walks along the river. Close to good restaurants. Had a great sleep in a king bed. The place was completely full but very quiet. Great place to stay.

I was pleasantly surprised by this little motel. Clean, quiet, and very well maintained. The room we used for one night, had 2 double beds with a sparkling clean bathroom. In addition, a small kitchen with a mini fridge, a microwave, a toaster oven, and hot plate also boasts utensils and dishes. There is also a table with benches in the corner (similar to ones in a RV). Vending machines are close to the three buildings on the property. Each room has either a patio or balcony with a cafe table with 2 chairs. I will definitely return 🙂
