Where is a relatively reasonable (around $100-$150/night range), clean, well-appointed hotel, preferrably with a good breakfast in Montreal, to go for 7 days in August? any chance I could up the ante and ask it to be in a artsy, cultural part of the city, possibly near museums, shopping, and restaurants?

If I were you, I'd get a place in the "plateau" in the Mont-Royal area of town. It's very funky less "corporate" and more bohemian than the downtown area. All the museums are only a metro ride away.

There aren't many hotels in the area I would recommend (surprisingly) but this one is relatively close (in your price range) and it looks like a good choice:

When are you going? Did I already ask you that? I'm not very far away, maybe I could show you around!

Hey, ok change of plans...it looks like the trip itinerary will be 3 days in Jackman, Maine, and 3 days in Quebec City. I don't actually know a lot about Quebec, but we are trying to find a place to stay that is cozy and comfortable, and then another for one of the nights that will knock our socks off. We are vacationing with my Wife's parents, my Brother-in-law, and my 81 year old Grandmother-in-law, so needless to say heavy walking may be a bit of a problem, but we definitely want to see the natural beauty of the area. We are leaving NC for Maine Christmas night, and hope to arrive in Jackman on the 26th. So we are looking at being in Quebec from Dec. 29th through Jan 1st. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Montmorency Falls, beautiful, people do ice climbing there in the winter, you can drive out there, it's easy.

Old Quebec City is a must around Christmas ; there should be some interesting things to see even in the last week of December. Tip : bring your camera with you at any time, as most of what makes this city a really beautiful one is not listed in any travel guide. Walking in the old town at night is a must.
