We arrived for a 4 night stay here - hmmm The toilet base was cracked, the wallpaper was peeling and it generally needed a bit of attention to all areas. Breakfast was ok, but I went at a different time every morning and the coffee had always run out. We didn't have to spend much time in the hotel so... More

This hotel was very clean and people were super friendly. The breakfast isn't huge but works for a quick bit to eat. Close to everything. The best part of my experience happened after we left. I realized I left my brand new Birkenstocks there. I called and left a message with housekeeping and spoke to a very nice lady on... More

Stayed here with my spouse while they were in Ottawa on business. This hotel is a no frills type place, the breakfast is coffee, juice, bagels, muffins, cereal, and waffles. Not a lot of choice but nice enough to get you going in the morning. The lobby and hallways are clean and modern. Our room was immaculate, updated and very... More

Recently stayed one night at this hotel while on business. If you want to be pampered and have luxury towels, linen, furniture well you came to the wrong hotel. If you want an inexpensive place to sleep that is clean but dated then this is your place. Breakfast is included but again don't expect much. What you get is bagel,... More

Room was very spacious and clean, it had a queen size bed and a coach with a pull out bed. Nice little table for two people to sit at. It had a microwave, mini fridge and a sink where you could wash dishes if you like. Loved the bathroom also, very modern. Only complaint: one cup for the coffee machine... More

Stayed here with my daughter before an early morning hockey game. Newly-renovated, so rooms were very clean - immaculate actually. Love the free parking in Ottawa, and the continental breakfast was pretty good - and the staff helping with the breakfast was very friendly and helpful.

Stayed there for 4 nights while a family member was in the hospital. Nice place, clean and quiet. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast was muffins, toast, cereal and coffee. If you want more there you can goto Perkins or Biggs just up the street and they have full course meals and breakfast. I would definitely recommend this... More
