The men reportedly made away with an undisclosed amount of money, but Poirier added that only one man went in through the front door and made his way to the front desk.

However, police believe a second man was also involved.

“Our team members and guests are all safe and sound. No one was injured, and we are very thankful for the RCMP for their quick co-operation,” said Cindy Bourque, the hotel’s general manager.
