Motel Homeric

Motel Homeric

With room rates that are considerably cheaper than those in the city center, Motel Homeric is an ideal solution if you’re sticking to a budget and don’t mind being a 20-minute drive from Old Quebec. It’s also conveniently close to Jean Lesage International Airport.

The hotel is clean, quiet, and run by friendly staff, although they mostly speak French, so it helps to know a little bit of their native tongue. Accommodations are spacious, with air-conditioning, private en-suite bathrooms, and a mini-fridge. If you find yourself with more room in the budget that anticipated, the motel also offers suites with a double whirlpool tub and fireplace. 

Free Wi-Fi and a luggage storage facility are additional perks, while complimentary parking space is conveniently provided in front of each room. And if you have a flight scheduled out of Jean Lesage International Airport, the motel offers long-term parking for up to two weeks. Ask about discounted rates for corporate trips and extended stays.

Hotel Manoir Victoria

Hotel Manoir Victoria

Four-star Hotel Manoir Victoria is a top pick for families, thanks to its convenient location inside Old Quebec’s fortified walls. Its prime spot means you can explore the city’s top historic attractions on foot, then bring the kids home for a dip in the indoor pool. While one parent supervises their swimming session, the other can enjoy a well-earned break in the sauna, fitness center, or SPA du Manoir.

There are 156 rooms and suites decorated in elegant and bright furniture that mixes contemporary design with antique flourishes. Some have two beds or a pull-out sleeper couch, while Deluxe Suites afford added privacy with a separate living room that doubles as a second bedroom, ensuring that you’ll have enough room for a larger group. But if that isn’t enough, cribs and rollaway beds are available upon request, and all rooms come with free Wi-Fi, and an HD TV. 

Each day starts with the hotel’s kid-friendly American breakfast buffet. The hotel’s restaurant, Chez Boulay-bistro boréal, serves seasonal cuisine for lunch and dinner, with Nordic-inspired dishes like an Angus beef flat iron steak with Jerusalem artichoke purée, or Gnocchi with leeks, young chard with sweet clover vinegar. There is also 50 percent discount on all meals for children aged 6 to 12, and kids aged 5 and under eat for free.

Best B&B: Auberge J.A. Moisan

Auberge J.A. Moisan

Auberge J.A. Moisan

Auberge J.A. Moisan takes its name from the famous épicerie (the French word for a grocery store) above which it stands. J.A. Moisan is the oldest grocer in North America and a renowned stop for foodies. Its authentic Victorian decor is replicated in the B&B, which provides a luxurious base from which to explore Old Quebec

There are four bedrooms to choose from, each one relatively small, but sumptuously decorated with hand-picked antiques. Tucked under the eaves, rooms have sloped ceilings, a private bathroom, and modern conveniences like air-conditioning and Wi-Fi.

For most guests, there are two big highlights. The first is the gourmet breakfast, a three-course extravaganza that showcases many of the local and exotic ingredients available in the shop below. Options change on a daily basis, but you can expect massive French omelets, with fillings like ham and cheese. The second is the gracious and knowledgeable hosts, Nathalie and Clément, who give the B&B the feeling of a home away from home.

Common areas include a parlor with a fireplace, a dining room, a solarium, and an outdoor terrace for soaking up the summer sunshine, and parking is free of charge.
