Cheap bed in Montreal

If you're looking for more than an affordable place with free parking to spend the night, look elsewhere. This hotel dates to the 76 Montreal Olympics and doesn't seem to have been significantly refreshed in any way since then. It is within about 15 minutes walk to the metro. So if you're just looking for somewhere you can sleep, park and take the metro from this place is decent.

Birthday vacation

The stay was very pleasant except the incident at the restaurant, but I did not eat there so I can say anything about the food, however the restaurant manager was rude. Great location.

Not a good value

This hotel was not a good value. It barely qualified as a Three Star, as far as I am concerned, and it was not a good value for what I paid. Unless you want to be near the Olympic Village, it is not in a good location. It is a long drive from anything else of interest in Montreal.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

This hotel is far from everything except the Olympic Village. Next time I would stay our by the airport at less of a cost, but about the same drive to downtown Montreal.
