We had a very nice room at this hotel. It was in the back, away from both the lobby and the highway, so it was quiet. The beds were comfortable, and the room was clean and well-appointed. The halls leading to it were dark and dreary, though. Very pleasant staff who put themselves out to meet us half-way on the French/English spectrum. They spoke English much better than we speak French, but communication was still a bit of a challenge. A sense of humor helps. The location is convenient - on the main highway through town with a view of the river.

It is a nice hotel with a nice pool, but the pool is very crowded and noisy. They have rooms facing the pool which are too loud and smell like chlorine, to be avoided. We asked for another room and were told they had none except in the same area, then they managed to find one on the 4t- floor, much better. Also, we were three adults, paid for three adults, and were only given towels for 2, on two separate occasions. Overall, it was clean, nice TV, newer bedding, comfortable, lots of nice pillows and good bathroom size. Tea and coffee selection were nice. Just be careful about room location

public areas are nice with lots of natural light thanks to the huge skylight. liked the lobby, mezzanine with meeting rooms and seating and also the pool with spa and waterslide. The staff in reception, restaurant and bar are all very nice. WiFi is also very reliable. I rate it 4 stars.

However the room was just OK (3 stars). Comfortable beds with nice linen and new comforters are the only plus, the rest of the room is outdated with wallpaper, old closet located in a too dark entryway and an awful beige color with paint chipping in some places. Small bathroom but I would not mind if there were no mildew because of the too old tiles joints (not much but still discusting). Toilettery set is nice with lots of items (quality was also better than most):
- conditioning shampoo
- body lotion
- 2 different type of soap (fine soap and purifying soap)
- shower gel
- vanity kit (cotton swabs, cotton balls, nail file)
- shower cap
- mending kit
- shoe polish cloth

My room had a window to the pool area, no outside view.

I would not hesitate to return to this hotel for business or stop there for a night if I had kids but definitely not for a romantic getaway. Removing the wallpaper, fresh paint and new tile joints in rooms would help this hotel tremendously.

Room Tip: Some rooms have indoor view to pool area, others with city view and some on the water ( I don't...

Well spotted in Rimouski. Cool if you have kids, there is a nice indoor pool with a uge slide. Price is good but rooms need a refresh. The tiles in the bathroom were old and some of them cracked. Rooms are big and you have a small fridge ideal for your six pack of beers. Not so quiet in rooms, I could hear people talking next door. (Not screaming)

Overall pretty good place but needs some improvement.

Given the limited standard hotel options in Rimouski, this would probably rank as one of the top offering locally. It is not a young place but has many pleasant features


What I liked: Large premium rooms (suites) available for a small extra and representing tremendous value. Friendly and knowledgeable staff throughout the hotel. Food on-site is good, although a bit pricey. On-site catering for events is top notch. Room was clean and everything was in working order. Reliable wifi/internet. Next to the water so great views for sunsets... Full-service hotel including gym and pool

What to watch for could be improved: Although well maintained, the décor is a tad dated and the room assigned lacked natural lighting (and overall, lighting was a weakness). This is not a young hotel and I am sure that they are trying their best to keep it up to date but it will likely require major upgrades in 5 years or so. Also, given the size and layout of the room, temperature control was a bit of an issue where you had to crank up the heat to keep it bearable in the work area (sleeping area was fine).

I have stayed a few times in this hotel and expect to stay there again, rates are reasonable and it I always get a good sleep there which is my nuber one concern. There is a touch of Fawlty Towers about the place but I always find the staff helpful. It is a good location.

Room Tip: ask if they can give you a room at the back (they seem to be bigger and very quiet but I knever had...

Have stayed at two different hotels and a B and B in Rimouski. Hotel Rimouski is the better hotel but certainly no better thsn average. Room had poor ventilation, very humid (water on window ledges all the time) and temp could not be turned below 20C for sleeping at night. Internet signal was poor and inconsistent since we were in a room on third floor at the far end of the hallway.
If you have to stay in Rimouski, despite these criticisms, this is your best bet.
