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. It offers everything it advertises, and is a great deal (and much cleaner and... More

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

The hallways have a funky smell. My room had a strong cigarette smell despite being a non-smoking hotel. The TV in the room didn't work. Like most hotels there were no accessible electrical outlets near the bed. The room was clean however. Checkout time of 11 is earlier than some hotels. The hotel would be a deal at half the... More

Another local hotel that I like to stay at was booked up - so I booked into the Welcome Inns in Ottawa. It's "ok" but lacking in many of the elements that I like for business travel. The walls are thin - I could hear people talking in the next room; a carby continental breakfast is included (yuck). It was... More
