Where to stay in Gatineau

Overshadowed by the neighboring national capital just across the river, Gatineau itself offers relatively little in the way of accommodations. Most people prefer to stay in Ottawa and simply catch public transportation across the river. If you prefer to stay in Gatineau, you can find a handful of motels along Boulevard Greber, and a few chain hotels farther northeast, just off Boulevard Maloney O.
