I will stay in a University residence, and some of them are really cheap ($12.50 a night!!). You have to pay extra for bedsheets, but I'll bring my own. Being a broke-ass student, this suits me just fine.
Here's a website that might help you:

for Montreal centre-ville, the Metro is convenient again, or, by car, a short blast over the Jacques Cartier bridge.

As a matter of fact, the closest I could find was a Sheraton in Laval ... which is I understand 30 min or so from downtown by car.
That's procrastination for you!!!
However, there is hope. The last 3 years downtown hotels have opened up close to the race date ... you have to be at the right place @ the right time ... and of course be able to weasle out of any other reservations ... which is not always easy!

I was told by the Montreal Reservation Center that there are plenty of rooms still available. Call
My good friend got a room yesterday at the Marriot Chateau Champlain, in the same hotel that my wife and I will be in. The lady there told him that there were plenty left.

we haven't tried to park on Ile Ste-Helene since 95--pre-JV. so, sorry, I don't have any info for you.

Park the car (for FREE, yes, free) at the Hippodrome at the Jean-Talon exit of Autoroute Decarie. From there it's a longish (but easy) Metro ride to Ile Sainte-Helene.
Bear in mind that I live in British Columbia, so there may be a better way known to locals only, but this worked for me in 1998.
