Great proximity to Espace Pour La Vie. Free parking was wonderful, outdoor pool was nice and very much enjoyed by our kids. Property is a bit shabby and our room was small and dark (especially considering the /night cost). But overall, nice stay.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We liked that there were 2 pools. Didn't like that the sauna wasn't working for our whole stay. REALLY didn't like the washroom. You could see inside and the door had a gap. Very uncomfortable with that low level of privacy. This was a big concern for all in both rooms
