First off let me start by saying that the construction along Main Street right now is a NIGHTMARE, and it's worth the time to call ahead and ask the receptionist how to get there! I had no idea there was even construction and I arrived around 5pm. With all the construction, detours, one way streets and rush hour traffic I... More

This place is a great value. It is certainly not a fancy hotel. It is a St Paul University student apartment. It has 2 bedrooms with a double bed each. A standard refrigerator and a weak microwave. But we figured the money we saved in accommodations we were able to eat out more. They allowed us to bring our 2... More

It was first visit for my family to Ottawa. It was affordable price including free parking and breakfast with two room and kitchen. Additionally people were very kind that they explained good place to visit. It was one of the best that I have stayed. But the one thing I hope to fix is there should be some directions how... More

My husband and I stayed for one night at St. Paul University residence and conference center. For a very reasonable rate we had a dorm style residence suite with two rooms (twin size bed in each), TVs, bathroom and small kitchen. The room included a continental breakfast (bagels & yogurt) which was good for a quick bite before heading out... More

This is our first stay at the bargain priced Residence & Conference Center, a college hotel rented out during the non-school period. Nice, clean and quiet just what us seniors are looking for. All two bedroom, one bath and kitchen unit close to all the Ottawa attractions. Free parking, direct connection to WiFi and a staff ready to help 24... More

I stayed for one night with my family there ,room quality was normal and clean but the breakfast was an issue . Refrigerator was out off order ,no more tea and milk I asked the front desk for tea cause the attendant was not paying attention to anything. If you came after 9 o'clock you'll get what is left only.

This is a perfect place to stay in Ottawa for someone travelling on a budget! It is located pretty close to the centre of the city(10 min drive or 30 min walk alond Rideau Canal),and slightly off the main road,in a very peaceful little park. The staff are very friendly and helpful!We were travelling with our baby son who is... More

Good thing that it was only for 1 night because it was an unpleasant experience. A student residence used off-season for the general public. It was obvious that the rooms hadn't been cleaned properly (Room 304). There were 2 bedrooms with a kitchen separating them. Very basic accommodations, which was fine, but it has to be clean. The floor in... More

The price was perfect and everything was about a 15 min drive. There was also a lot of stuff within walking distance. I loved the fact that there was 2 bedrooms and a breakfast area with a fridge and microwave. It was perfect for someone on a budget.
