    Question about Le Chablis (and Ideal)

    Dear MERBits,
    Can you please answer a few question about Chablis?
    I used it last time more than 1 year ago, so probably something has been changed sinse then.
    1) How do I get to Chablis St-Jacques from downtown by public transportation? Google suggests to take Bus 90 from metro Atwater. Is it correct?
    If so, how long do I wait for the bus? Is it possible to catch it to get back to metro late night?
    2) How much do I pay for taxi from metro Atwater to Chablis St-Jacques?
    3) What is their current price range for 4 hours?
    4) Do they still accept cash and car plate number, no ID?
    5) Some agencies have special $160 rate for downtown. Do they consider both Chablis hotels as downtown hotels?
    6) Tell me please about Ideal: prices for 4 hours, payment/ID policy, etc.
    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Some quick answers to your questions:

    1) Yes. The frequency varies depending on the time of day - you can find the schedules (as well as a directions) on the link Ariane posted. I would not depend on it to get back to Atwater late at night, but if you insist on doing so make a note of the stop number so that you can call to verify when the next bus will be.

    2) A taxi would be approx. $12 to $15. (guess-timate)

    3) Rooms start around $55.

    4) Yes

    5) Yes

    6) Don't know, but I'm curious as well. Is that considered downtown for most agencies (it looks a bit far).
    btw: I believe Le Chablis Cadillac is near Metro Cadillac. I've never tried it though and I don't think it's considered downtown for most agencies.

    Une chambre à l'idéal Lajeunesse est disponible pour 4 heures à partir de 37$. Ils vont te demander soit la marque de ta voiture, ou si tu n'en a pas, une pièce d'identitié.

    Oui l'autobus 90 est celle identifiée également par la STCUM, mais elle conseille de la prendre à partir de la Station Vendôme par contre.

    Oui plusieurs agences incluent le Chablis St-Jacques dans le prix spécial de 160$. Mais moi je ne l'utilise pas car voyez-vous, moi je demeure près de l'Idéal. Je peux y avoir une chambre pour 37$, alors qu'au Chablis St-Jacques, c'est justement 50$ minimum. J'ai beau sauver sur le tarifs de l'agence, je paie plus en chambre, alors pour moi ce n'est pas gagnant d'y aller! Et en plus c'est plus loin de chez moi!

    Thanks girls and guys!

    Thanks girls and guys!
    I visited their sites, but they don't list their short-term rates there, so I asked here about it.
    Maxime, although Je ne parle pas France, I understood "Une chambre à l'idéal Lajeunesse", "demander soit la marque de ta voiture" and most other phrases w/out using any translator! Wow, I'm not that bad in french!
    My understanding is both Cadillac and l'idéal Lajeunesse are in walking distance from metro stations, right?

    Idéal Lajeunesse is between two metro stations: Sauvé (if you're coming from the South) and Henri-Bourassa (if your coming from Laval). It's a little bit closer to Sauvé station. In the first case, it's a five minutes walk; in the second case it's approximatively a 10 minutes walk.

    Chablis is near Cadillac station. I never walked the distance because I drive to go there.

    Indeed, Chablis Cadillac is less than a 5-minute walk from metro Cadillac.

    Don't know about Chablis Cadillac, but Chablis St Jacque is considered a downtown hotel for rate, special and regular.

    No, and no.


    If you are looking for good value for your money, Colibri Motel across the street from Chablis St Jacque is $25 for 4 hours with a $5 deposit on TV remote.
