Close to grocery store; Higher floors provide good views of the city Cons: The room i got was in the small side (room with 2 double beds); Airconditioning... More

I would like it more if it's two blocks far from the Rideau street ! Everything you need is walkable but it's noisy ! And to cap it all the parking is so expensive ! Think of the parking rate before you decide to go ahead unless you don't have problem with it, other than that room is large and... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review of your stay in August 2013 noting our spacious rooms and great service! Last year during your stay, Rideau Street was under construction and I do sincerely apologize to our guests for this inconvenience. Because we are located in the heart of downtown, there will always be noise emanating from the street. For... More

This hotel is in a great location but needs a lot of updates. The hotel staff I found not very knowledgeable about events in the area. The rooms are okay but did get cleaned on a daily basis. The hall ways were very smelly as they were not air conditioned. The air conditioning unit in the room was very noisy.... More

... And pleasantly average in most aspects. Clean, larger bathroom with nice shower heads. Comfy queen bed and cool air conditioning. Park your car for $20/24 hours at hotel. We meandered to the Bytown Market streets, the Park and Parliment. Walking shoes are recommended.

Just what I was looking for really. Something clean for under 150.00 with parking. That's exactly what I got. It's actually even better than the much more expensive hotel (Lord Elgin) that I stayed at the night before . I was not disappointed with this place because it is worth the price and what I expected.

I'm very fond of this Quality Hotel and would definitely stay here again. I had my cat with me, and there were no issues at all with that. I enjoyed the fully-functioning fridge and microwave oven; you can stay here for a long time and be quite independent! The furniture and curtains in my room were "well-used," it is true,... More

Recently I attended the Canada Dance Festival in Ottawa, and decided to stay at the downtown Quality Inn - definitely a good choice - the rates were good, the location was great, the staff very pleasant, and the room comfortable and welcoming. The only concern I had was the onsite parking, operated by a third party, which meant that you... More

Everything is good in this hotel - location, room, staff. It's also very near to byward market and Dollarama store and grocery. Few minutes by cab to Parliament Hill and it's between main attractions and Ottawa Train Station. However, wifi signal was weak in our room.

This was a good value hotel in a central location with helpful staff and everything in working order.
