MISERABLE front desk staff - not necessarily towards guests, but to each other. I was able to watch a woman at the front desk be VERY crusty at another staff member in front of myself and another guest trying to check in. I travel a lot for business and have seen my fair share of hotels, but I have NEVER... More

The hotel was very clean, The Pool area was dated but kept clean, The St. Laraunt Mall was just accross the street. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. The Chimo had a very good complimentary breakfast. The bed was soooo comfortable. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

When I plan a weekend in Ottawa, I stay at the Chimo. One, it is very easy to get to off the highway. Two, it is right beside one of my favourite restaurant chains - The Lone Star. This one not only has great food but live entertainment upstairs. Three, it is across the street from the St. Laurier Mall.... More

I was in Ottawa for a 4 night stay on Business, the Chimo hotel was recommended by the company I was servicing. No fault of there's because they had never stayed but the location was convenient. The Chimo seems to cater to alcoholic partiers with hoards of misbehaving children. The hotel is noisy at all hours of the night, drunks... More

We stayed at the Chimo for the first time in a few years. We had stayed at the Chimo almost twice a year from about 1985 for years but the hotel was starting to show its age, so we started to go other places. We stayed there for the convenience for shopping this time. It is definitely in need of... More

I read some of the reviews for this hotel before staying. I have to say that people that complain about this hotel are people that complain (check their other reviews). Stayed here for my wife's birthday. Booked through Priceline and called to say it was a special event. Alan said they would upgrade us. Don't know if you have booked... More

Front desk staff was helpful. Room was clean and breakfast was good. Will stay again. Wifi worked well. Located close to freeway and mall. Resturant next door was really good. Kids will enjoy the pool.

My family attended an event at this property. The hotel staff are amazing- cozy atmosphere, welcoming environment and clean and organized. Special thanks goes out to GM and his team for going above and beyond and capturing and executing every detail of the celebration- food is amazing and rooms spotless- hidden gem, great location right off the Queensway. Free parking... More

It was my first and last time at this hotel. The reception service was decent and the room was alright, but when I woke up in the morning I noticed a tiny bug on the bed (which I have a video of). I did not realize at first that this was a bed bug, but as the day went on... More
