Room 21 very close to Restaurant, 'my request,' have been coming here at least once a year for many years, Waitresses "the best' due to health this may have been my last visit. We usually stop here on route to Smiths Falls to visit a cousin, but this year we decided to spend a couple of days in Mattawa, at...

We have stayed there only one night. This is a great place. Came on Oct 9, 2016 in the evening. Rooms are clean and comfortable with a view of the river Ottawa. They have a great restaurant and bar. We decided to stay for dinner and it was a great choice and a delicious meal. Next morning with breakfast the...

Heading back to Ottawa I like to make Mattawa a halfway rest stop, and the Valois is usually one of the fave's. Not sure what's happening but it seems a lot different recently than usual. At noon there's usually a bigger crowd, but we were a bit on the 1:00 PM side so we assumed a quieter time for them....

Dirty rooms, yellow pillows with hair. Got upgraded to a slightly better room, but still dirty and worn down and without hair on the pillows. This motel has seen its better days and the restaurant is not any better. The burger seemed to be pre-cooked and I had to cut and eat it with a fork and knife. Our advice...

The restaurant was fine, I liked the local, small town atmosphere. Our room was ok too, but if I ran the place I'd do a few things that would not be hard to implement. The sink faucet was loose, moved a good bit when you turned the handles. The toilet seat was the wrong size for the bowl so it...

We've stayed here before. The regular rooms are just ok, some are a bit dated and tend to have a funk smell. This time we stayed in the cabins in the 60 section. The cabins are much better and worth the extra few bucks. The room was clean and included a small kitchenette. It was quiet and the view of...

My Husband and I and his siblings have travelled to Mattawa frequently over the years. Valois' has always been a MUST stop, until today!! The service was terrible, the waitress' had a poor attitude, no smile, nothing, at one point the one waitress threw the cream on the table when asked for more cream. It took 30 minutes to get...

The Valois hotel and restaurant was the home base for our recent ATV touring adventure. The accommodations by the river front were comfortable and offered a kitchenette with adequate amenities. The staff were warm and welcoming. The food was plentiful and the service staff were excellent. The hotel is aging and has not seen any upgrades which would improve its...

This is like 2 motels. The upper rooms look very noisy being beside a hill on a busy highway. We've always stayed in the rooms on the lower level right beside the river and it is a superb setting and you can swim just below the rooms - very refreshing after a hot day. The room we had was fine...

Old and tired, with Windows that don't lock,decades old carpet, bathroom so small the vanity was in the bedroom, no closet,nightstand or clock. And beside the highway where trucks climb a hill at night. Worst part it was $109. Worth about $50. Great view of Ottawa river though. We were in room 36 so other rooms might be better but...
