Firstly, the other reviews will seem to be much more critical and much less complimentary. I am not sure if others actually stayed at the same hotel.
The Baie-Bleue is a combination Hotel, motel, and convention center. There are small and large meeting rooms, and the place seemed busy and popular, even in early March when I stayed there. I was there with four other co-workers on a weeklong business trip in the area.
Checkin was quick and efficient, the desk clerks throughout our stay were more than accomodating. We were given rooms on the 3d and top floor of the main building, facing the Baie des Chaleurs. The water view was nice, and must be spectacular in the summertime.
The room was basic, but all ammenities were of quality. The room had a good sized small fridge, desk, two lounge chairs, and a combination closet-dresser. The only thing that was lacking was a microwave oven, which I find in most good hotel rooms.
The bed was very comfortable, above average. Maid service was done a little later in the day (very early aft). Thw washroom was adequate, water pressure was great, though a new shower head was due in my room.
Maybe the hotel has had a refurbishment of the rooms, as I found none of the negatives mentioned in earlier reviews. The carpet was newer and clean. The room smelled clean as well. The heater and thermostat worked well, and there looked like a new air conditioning unit installed, though we certainly didn't need it in March.
Finally, the pub downstairs was terrific. The menu was varied with everything from steak, to Fajitas, to Smoked Meat sandwiches, to seafood to pizza and burgers. The steak was excellent, as were the Fajita plate. Only the pasta dishes were less than satisfying in the size of the plate. All the locals around Carleton said it was the best pub food in town. We ate there most nights, as the food was good and we didn't feel the need to seek out other eateries. Prices were slightly higher than other places, but the quality and freshness more than made up for it. Don't hesitate to eat there.
All in all, a wonderful 6 day stay, no complaints. I would stay here agin without question.
