When I came to the room I was shocked - the DIRTY carpet with a smell, blanket with a LOT of small holes in it and there was a BALL OF DARK HAIR in the bed!!! The water in pool seemed to be also dirty, no staff in pool area and the last SHOCK was when a teenager girl got... More

As mentioned in the title the wi-fi was poorly working, in the morning the breakfast was awful, plastic cutlery and plates, industrial food served and we didn't want to try the pool as we couldn't see the bottom as the water was too dirty

After reading the reviews I had low expectations. We spent the weekend with our team and the hotel was full. Lynn at reception was pleasant when we checked in. Our check out was equally pleasant without any problems. The elevators work but the doors make noise. Could use some servicing to get rid of the squeaking The rooms were clean... More

After reading a few of these reviews, I was expecting the worst. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised. Clean room and bath. Good bed. Decent TV. Excellent breakfast that ran until 11a on Sunday, so I could actually sleep until a decent hour. Enjoyed a swim in the pool and found the staff to be quite helpful. The price was also... More

Location: Good. Near a big shopping mall and the Mooney's bay park. Free outdoor parking and no problem finding a spot. Hotel state: Old hotel with old carpet and decor. OK for overnight sleep but don't expect anytime of luxury. Room: Feels dusty and old. The drains in the shower were clogged in our room and in our friends'. Comparable... More

We stayed last night for one night and the it's not worth the price we paid for this hotel. If you will be paying $100 and above for a room in this hotel, I guarantee you it will not be worth it. Better look somewhere else if you are contemplating on paying $100 and above. The hotel photos and description... More

PROS of stay *** Location is close proximity to Aviation Museum, Science and Technology Museum, Parliament, restaurants, shopping mall. ** Free hot breakfast (limited menu and does not change but fills you up), Wi-Fi (very slow - okay for email, not for social media or streaming), pool, and sauna. * Online prices comparable with hotels in the area and able...

My wife and I decided to use HotWire to book a Hotel room for one night in Ottawa. We pulled straws and ended up with The Chimo Hotel. I had never heard of it. What a disappointment! The room, I hate to say, way dirty, especially the washroom, and especially the shower. It was our first time and our last... More

I am not that picky and that's why I chose this hotel, I read the reviews but I thought people are so picky. There were spots on the sheets! Bath tub was terrebily dirty! Internet was that slow, which was almonst not usable at all. Air conditioner was loud! And the room did stink.

It is a great location because it is next to the highway and the St. Laurent Centre and city bus depot; so you can drive to any out lying locations or leave the car there and take the bus downtown to avoid paying city parking fees. The room was very spacious and it had a great view. The pool had... More
