I purchased this hotel from Hotwire (which gives you the hotel AFTER your purchase) but was ultimately satisfied for the choice. We were only in Ottawa for a single overnight trip for a graduation and weren't planning on spending too much time there. The hotel is about 10 min cab ride from downtown, and was right across from a big... More

There was building work going on opposite the hotel which woke us at 7 am each morning. There was also a school group who tended to be noisy in the corridors. The room was quite large with 2 Queen Beds but the carpet was stained, there was no plug in the sink and the shower head attachment was loose meaning... More

Very dirty and old hotel. Grey to black carpet, tubs do not drain so you are showering in a pool of water, makes me cringe. It is definitely not a 3 star hotel, I'm not sure how they keep that rating. Breakfast was gross, the eggs tasted like cardboard. Staff were average but definitely some very rude ones. They lost...

I first arrived to the hotel and saw a ugly brick building that looked like it held little promise. When I first entered the lobby was very tacky and failed at achieving a older now look. I checked into the room with my friends and we went to floor 6. The bathroom smelt like sweat and was gross. The beds... More

Although not what I would consider a destination place, it suited our need for a couple of nights. Location was perfect for our needs but for sight seeing likely not so great. Price included parking, spotty wifi and breakfast which we did not try but smelled good from the lobby. Beds were comfy and clean. Bathroom did not have the... More

The location is average, the hotel is old and worn out. I was here 20 years ago and it was old then, and nothing has changed. The rooms are large but the A/C is broken and they said they cannot move me and have no fans. The ice machine is broken. The pop machine is broken, the food in "Clancys"... More

Although an older hotel, it is very clean and staffed by knowledgeable, friendly people. We were given nothing but excellent service, from the front desk through to the dining room. The breakfast included is a nice extra.
