This was my second stay at this property. Booked one room with two queen beds as my daughter was meeting and staying with me there. At check-in, the room, beds and bathroom all seemed clean. There was fairly large hole/open seam on one bed cover. No toiletries provided in the bathroom with the exception of one small wrapped bar soap.... More

We had a four night stay there in March. It was comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful and was a convenient location to explore the area from. To top it off the price was right. The included breakfast was simple but more the adequate and the attached restaurant was nice for the nights we just wanted to relax.

Stayed for the night at this hotel. After reading the reviews got a bit worried about the state of the hotel - I so shouldn't have. First, the receptionists are ultra courteous - made me feel welcome (it helped after a long drive from Toronto). The hotel was clean, so was the room (including the carpet). I do agree the... More

We stayed there for two nights and it was a comfortable stay. The Hotel is a little old but is good and convenient. The Hotel staff were very friendly and cordial. Since it was our firtst visit to Canada and Ottawa, we wanted some information about the local transportation and food etc., and the staff was kind and patient enough... More

After booking on Hotwire, we found out we were staying at the Chimo, and decided to check out the reviews. I was pretty nervous because a lot of them didn't seem very good; but when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised! Front Desk was fantastic. Rooms clean and and spacious. Bathrooms cleaned and stocked. Pool and sauna were good, accept... More

This hotel is very run down. Needs a complete overhaul. The free WiFi works about 30% of the time. Very frustrating when you are on business and rely on it to get some evening work done. I wouldn't even try the breakfast or the pool. Good thing it was cheap. Monthly rate was $1500. But money isn't everything.

I would never recommend this hotel. In the room no microwave, in the tub rust all over. Photo was showing jacuzzi, jacuzzi not exist. On the swimming pool on sealing you can see moald. In breakfast area windows was so dirty, you can't even look. Was disgusted.

The room was clean and adequate, but there was no pen/pencil or tissues provided. The WiFi was not up to par, the bathtub didn't drain properly. The hotel itself could use a bit of sprucing up, but my adult son and I felt it was good value for the money. I was impressed with the swimming pool. It was heated,... More

Stayed here with my wife and 5 year old son. Upon seeing our room we were thoroughly disgusted. The room had a foul, stagnant odour and the carpets were stained. The hallways and elevators were the same. We returned to the front counter and advised the staff of our dissatisfaction. We were informed that all the rooms are the same... More
