On Thursday August 20th, 2020, after driving from Sainte-Adèle on Highway 117, my wife and I arrived at our booked destination, the two-floor eco-friendly Best Western Plus situated at 1231 Boulevard Albiny Paquette in Mont-Laurier, Quebec. It is conveniently located on Highway 117 and provides quick access to downtown restaurants and fast food places, the bike path Le P’tit Train du Nord, and Vallée de la Rivière Golf Club.
We arrived around 2:00 pm and our room was already available. Check-in was easy and quick and getting our magnetic room key was a breeze. Our spacious and wonderfully comfortable executive suite on the second floor was accessible by lift. The suite which included a separate living room was highlighted by the many windows and the hardwood flooring. It was overlooking the busy highway going into town.
Added for our convenience were a mini fridge, a Keurig coffee maker, a microwave, two large LCD TVs, a huge desk with chair, free high-speed Wi-Fi, and free parking. We enjoyed the comfortable premium bedding with its many pillows. An adjoining private bathroom with a neutral décor, had a large and modern shower stall, the complimentary toiletries, a hair dryer, a cosmetic mirror and a white counter and modern sink.
Due to associated health concerns under Covid-19 and the safety protocols, we were not able to use some of the amenities such as the fitness centre and the breakfast room as they were temporarily closed. However, we did enjoy swimming in the heated indoor pool. That evening we ordered in some pizza from Pizz Traiteur Pizzeria. The next morning, we did get a delicious pre-packaged Grab & Go Breakfast that included an orange juice, a sausage-egg & cheese bagel, a blueberry muffin, a yogurt, a fruit cup, and coffee. Before leaving the premises, the front desk made sure we got our Best Western invoice statement by E-mail.
Because of the hotel quality, the price, the Covid-19 sanitization standards under the We Care Clean Program, the organizational process, and the great customer service, we would recommend the Best Western Plus Mont-Laurier and would rate our stay as 5 stars. less
