This hotel was OK. It was pretty beat up, you could easily tell it hadn't been remodeled in a long time. I was upgraded to a suite and it was in a very weird configuration, two rooms separated by a long narrow hallway. The lighting and TV in the sitting room didn't work well, or at least I couldn't figure out which switches controlled which lights. I ended up just staying in the bedroom and watching TV there which defeated the point of having a suite. The hotel itself, especially the common areas like the lobby, hallways and vending areas were dark and dingy. The parking lot was rough, and there was no breakfast included. The buffet breakfast was $13.95! Outrageous. The only person on staff that was nice to me was the waitress at the buffet in the morning, the rest of the staff, including the desk staff, made it clear that they weren't too interested in dealing with me. Either because I am an American or because I don't speak French. Whatever. I will not stay here again, and based on my experience at a local restaurant for dinner
(Normandin), I won't be coming back to Quebec anytime soon. I'm a nice, polite guy with money to spend and I've never felt more unwelcome than my time at this hotel and the nearby restaurant.

... to see a little bit of this town--BIG MISTAKE. Town is about 5 miles off the highway. Just as we exited, we saw a sign for Starbucks . . . 2 kilometers and one exit further. Well, maybe we'll find a Starbucks in town!!
As we approached town, we ran into one construction mess after another. Then, as we approached the downtown square, we spotted a Starbucks--so we got coffees. And then, we got to enjoy them ...
... stuff, going a short bike ride and just plain relaxing in a quiet marina.
Many boaters play with language to name their boats, including the French Canadians. Can any of my Francophone friends figure out the meanings of these boat names? ...
I watched the gently failing light from my single seat. I recognized the rise and fall of the hills across the St. Lawrence as we entered Quebec. It was very beautiful to see the sunset across the water. I couldn't read the stops we made along the way because my eyes were fighting the twilight lighting, as all non nocturnal beings ...
The 42 nautical mile run from Montreal to Sorel was easy and smooth...but we had to dodge or stay out of the way of the big container ships. There are three busy ports in this area for these big boys. Sorel appears to be a town to serve the shipping industry. ...
... lunch time so there was heaps of people running upstairs while we were trying to come down. We next made our way through the downtown to the Old town area were there are lots of really nice buildings. We basically walked all day, stopping when we needed a break to people watch. We walked all along the waterfront and saw the big tents they had set up for the citrus solei. We took a rest for an hour at Timmies so I could Call Hayden for his birthday. We wandered ...
