This is student housing repurposed as a hotel until students come back for the term. It was very clean, but that is the best thing about it. The "2 bedroom Suite" we paid for was two bedrooms which each had a double bed, a kitchen and bathroom. The shower was the size of showers on a cruise ship. We were... More

Travelers beware, this is not the place to bring your new date for a romantic escapade. But to those who, like myself, travel a lot for business and are eager to find convenient, cost-efficient lodging options, I say: this might be your spot. Yes, this is a university residence converted into a hotel for the summer season. But as I... More

We were in Ottawa from Kitchener, just for one night so did not want to spend a lot on a place to stay the night, so we ended up here because it was a more reasonable price and had free parking and breakfast. We hadn't done a lot of research on it so it was interesting when we realized it... More

This is a university hostel rented out in the summer, each dorm had two bedrooms split by a small kitchen/washroom/lobby area... it included a sink and a fridge, so that was decent. The place is run down a bit, but if you don't really care about fancy things and want a bed (which was surprisingly comfy) to sleep in this... More

This has been my first time staying at this location. It has a great spot in terms of being local because you can walk to downtown and leave your car there with the free parking. They offer a very good continental breakfast with four types of cereals, toast, bagels, yogourt, tea coffee and juice so that was a pleasant surprise... More

I had a brief one night stay at this place. It's a university hostel which is made available to public in summers. Each suit has 2 queen bed rooms. I didn't line the lighting arrangements. It was very dim. The location wAs very good and I guess it's their biggest selling point. It's bit tricky to find the location as... More

I booked this place after I checked tripadvisor and it was among top 5 hotels in Ottawa at that time !!! The price is "slightly" less than a nice and affordable hotel! My experience was really bad! The room was dirty with hairs and dust. We didn't have blanket and we asked three times (at 4:00 pm, 7:00 pm and... More

This was our second stay at the Residence & Conference Centre ( also known as St Paul's University Residence ) The location is the best thing about this hotel. Price is cheap, so I guess you get what you paid for. Although we had a very nasty surprise upon arrival. We checked in , we're given our key card -... More

Went for a short trip to Ottawa-- stayed 2 nights with my husband and 2 kids (4.5 and 2). 2 separate BR, small kitchenette area (fridge, sink, microwave) and bathroom (right off the entrance). I was able to put the playpen in one of the BR-- fit snugly in the closet area. We had a camping cot that our older... More

Very basic accommodations but for the price, especially if you are sharing like we were (me, my g/f, my sis & her boyfriend), it was a very valuable option. The four of us split the cost, $88 split 4-ways, the is no other cheaper option in Ottawa. Both bedrooms have a tv, there is one bathroom with a shower. The... More
