One reviewer noted, "This motel is across the road from a nice restaurant, just down from a museum of the lost villages, close enough to Cornwall if you want something from a city, and far enough out of the city to be quiet and cozy".

Several reviewers enjoyed the hotel's lodgings. They described their rooms as clean, well equipped, quiet and spacious, with nice views of the St. Lawrence River. A few travellers had complaints about their accommodations, however (see below).
