I asked about wifi upon check-in and was told there is no wifi of any sort here offered to guests, even tho it is available if you have a campus ID. Seems lazy to not offer it to guests under a different password since the infrastructure is there and these accoms are only available when the main semesters/terms are out... More

This facility was a real deal. The rooms are actually two bedroom apartments meant for conference goers who need a good bed and a place to study. You should not expect a hotel with room service and a swimming pool but if you want a clean, spacious room, and a basic Continental breakfast and parking, you will be quite happy... More

This is a college dorm. All I needed was a bed to sleep in for one night. For a very low price that's exactly what I got, with a basic breakfast included. Great deal. Do not expect any frills whatsoever.

Suite has two rooms, bathroom and kitchenette. Nice Courtyard as well. College Square has nice shops, all the main places you would need (mcdonalds, timmies, pizza pizza, pharmacy, Loblaws) and the College has a Starbucks which is right across from the Residence. It is very clear it is a College dorm, but for $70 night you get a good location,... More

Thus was the mandatory accommodation for a course i had enrolled in. If you are looking for cheap accommodation then this is the place, there is a small kitchen in the 2 bedroom units but there is no cutlery, cooking utensils, plates etc (you'll need to buy). The accommodation is basic and old, the walls are marked and first impressions... More

We went with the kids swim team for 5 nights. The rooms are large dorm style. The mattresses are hit and miss for firmness. Bring your own pillows ( Loblaw's across street sold them for $4.00) the ones supplied are to small. Big fridge and microwave in the room. There are communal kitchens and lounges on each floor. We did... More

We had this residence booked for my daughter's entire sport club as we were attending a large meet in Ottawa. The club attempted to book something economical. Unfortunately, the savings were not worth the sacrifice. Upon entering the room, the first thing we smelled was cigarette smoke. (All rooms are "non-smoking"). It was hard to tell if it was the...

I went to Ottawa for the Monet exhibit. Algonquin College offered the best price with free parking and continental breakfast. I was expecting a dorm, and that's exactly what I got. There was plenty of parking, but the lot was hard to find after dark. I almost drove to the bus stop. The room was a nice suite with 2... More

Do not stay here, it is filthy and broken. The staff was unmotivated to say the least. The vertical blinds in one of the bedrooms was missing slats and they never repaired it even after we complained three times. For two mornings there was no sugar and the staff couldn't be bothered to get any. The floors had never been... More
