... It was handy having the car too. Saved us from ******* around using public transport.
We walked through all the green houses - they had all types of plants, trees and flowers. The most impressive was the bonsai trees. There was one over 200 years old.

It will be in a totally different culture again, and we're pretty happy about it. A new continent, a French-speaking place mixed with another new language, in a setting where our quality of life will definitively improve. Not bad, hey?

Considering we couldn't see that far in the city on a run we thought the view of the waterfall might be wasted on such a cold winters day. Instead we continued our watching of the tv show 'Breaking Bad' as we have been trying to catch up to the episodes that are currently airing and we are still a season behind.

Get what you pay for
I spent two nights on Dec 27-29. The cost before taxes was $80 CAD for a two-twin bedroom.
The two pros are the location and the price. The hotel is a short walk from the Place d'Armes Metro station, three blocks to the Notre-Dame Basilica and the Old City, and the main shopping area on Ste-Catharine is at a walkable distance.
The rooms are quite small, but clean. The TV is suspended from the ceiling. The bathroom only has a small shower stall. The desk service was OK. The only ice machine is on the mezz. level.
It is fine for those intent on visiting Montreal for a few days and plan to spend their time sightseeing and/or enjoying the nghtlife.
Tiny rooms filled up with smoke
I was booked in here by a conference organizer in July. The hotel is like a motel piled up high in downtown Montreal. Teh rooms are small with a tiny bathroom and like a space capsule in feel. My girlfriend suffers from claustrophobia so this was a problem. The biggest problem was we were given smoking rooms which seemed OK when we first entered them, but when we came back later in the evening they were full of smoke that must have come out of the air conditioner. Then we left which took a long time, the staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful. We went to some dumpy hotels which at least were more livable...
We stayed at the Montreal Centre Travelodge for seven nights in July, 2004. The location was decent: on the fringe of downtown, and just around the corner from Chinatown, and about two blocks away was the Place d'Arts. The room was clean and had recently been renovated. But that's the only good things I can say for the hotel. Check-in was painfully slow, it took almost a half hour, even though we were second in line. The clerk said this was due to a "shift change" taking place. (Huh?) The truth was that he didn't have a clue of what he was supposed to be doing. Then there was the room. Small doesn't begin to describe it. In fact the room was so small that the TV was suspended from the wall above our heads. Then there was the tiny shower - so tiny that you bumped the sides if you tried to turn around in it. To make matters worse, we paid over $100/night Canadian. We will never stay here again.
Better off @ a Hostile
Absolutely the worst hotel I've ever seen.They charged me 159$ Cad. for a closet, the room is not even 150 sq feet. The management also needs some find tuning! I had reserved for two nights in August and while walking into my room I discovered mould in the shower, I asked the front desk if they would possibly be able to change my room, with a great big huff and puff they did. The next rrom looked ok (still a closet) when we walked in but as we returned from supper and got ready for bed we pulled the covers and found a big dark brown spot on the sheets. We decided to check out but the General manager blamed the stain on us and refused to credit our room....we decided to leave and search for a hotel some where else.
Had booked the Travelodge in downtown Montreal (Boulevard Rene Levesque) for the first 4 nights and last 2 nights of my trip before leaving the UK.
Great location, within easy walking distance of Old Montreal, St Catherine's Street, metro stop etc. But the overall feel of the hotel is depressing. It's dingy, slightly shabby, and probably not worth the money. I've stayed in quite a few Travelodges and liked this one the least, despite the breakfast which as another contributor said was well laid-out etc in a proper-sized dining room (unfortunately complete with a rather rude member of staff on the door one of the mornings I was there, who abruptly informed me breakfast was due to finish shortly, as if, although I was still within the time limit, I had no right to be there.) The shower curtain, as also mentioned, was a pain, and I had to use the bath mat and towels to mop up water from all over the bathroom floor. My room was comfortable, but as the hotel is on a main road, I was disturbed by the noise of fast traffic intermittently throughout the night. Overall, you could do worse, but you could probably do a whole lot better.
Eh.....not my best experience
Plusses: Great location, walking distance to most major attractions. Chinatown is right around the corner. Great location for the Jazz festival.
Minuses: Not the nicest rooms. Pretty small and our room smelled of mildew or something wet. The elevators are terrible. They have 3 of them, (one was out of order) and I found taking the stairs to be more efficient. Finally, parking is pretty much non-existant. They have a lot below the hotel but it has a limited number of spaces and my guess is that they reserve them for a "select" group of guests.
Overall I thought it was okay. Probably a little expensive for the kind of service and ammenities you get but I would consider styang there again just for the location.
My daughter and I just returned from four very cold days in Montreal and I should have read the reviews before booking this hotel. The rooms are small but adequate if you are not spending much time there, but the beds were as bad as any I have ever slept on in any hotel in any country. There are no box springs, just a very hard mattress on a wooden box. Unbelievably hard to sleep. The management explained that they are under new owners and have redone the rooms but have not been able to replace the matresses. The parking was fine though it was a little difficult to manuever the minivan in the small space, but we were grateful for the warmth of the garage which is under the hotel.
During a 2 week tour of Quebec and Ontario, we booked 7 hotels. This was the most expensive and the worst service.
