We often stay at the Ramada, formerly the Monterey, whenever we are in Ottawa. Great, friendly staff, convenient location. The handicapped room is slightly on the expensive side, but easily accessible. We choose to make this our 'home away from home' whenever an overnight stay is needed in Ottawa.

One of the best parts of a ringette tournament is the fun in the hotel, the girls ranging from room to room and bonding. We didn't realize until we got there that this hotel is built on the 'motel' model, where you have to go outside to go from room to room. With all the snow and double-digit minus temperatures,...

Hi Bryan, I hear what you were saying, part of the tournament is to mingle and have fun with the rest of the group in the hotel. Unfortunately, we are very sorry that your group agent was not able to advise you that our property guest rooms are in 4 separate buildings. On the other hand, we are happy to... More

First off I am more frustrated by Expedia (that I booked with) than the hotel but the "airport hotel" with the "free airport shuttle" cost me $ 50 in cabs to get to and from because the shuttle actually only runs from 8 - 10 on weekdays and 8 - 5 on weekends. My arrival and departure flights arrived later... More

First, I would like to apologized for your frustration. You mentioned that you made a reservation through expedia, unfortumately all the information for our shuttle service is indicated as limited hours and should be booked in advance. In regards to continental breakfast, it is included in your room rate, unfortunately it runs from 7-9am only. If you have a future... More

Let me start by stating I don't often give bad reviews based on one hiccup but when staying in a hotel for 8 hrs between a cancelled evening flight and morning flight (due to cancellations) what can get wrong? I only stayed here one night due to flight cancellation and pushing for a work deadline - hence reliable internet and... More

Beautiful and newly updated rooms with a modern look and feel. Surprised to find a quaint little balcony with a gorgeous view of the Rideau River. Staff were friendly and very helpful and the location was very convenient to the wedding I was attending. I will definitely recommend to all my family and friends!

Newly remodeled Ramada (formerly Monterey Hotel) is a great motel off the beaten path, not too far from YOW. I highly recommend this to anyone needing pet friendly accommodation. The pet friendly rooms are located at the last building in the complex, the farthest from the road, and the closest to the Rideau River. This is great for pets because... More

If we'd written this after our 1st night this past weekend, it'd have been 5*s. Newly renovated rooms, modern efficiencies, good WiFi, lovely decor and a pleasant, easy check-in. The walk-out to the river was perfect for us and our two little elderly dogs. All good. Then came Saturday night. The party above us (and I mean "party" in both... More

We stayed in this pleasant motel one night this past week-end. It is situated on the Rideau River about 10 min. from the Ottawa airport. We were not disturbed by planes at all. The beds were so very comfortable with deep mattresses. The mattresses were totally wrapped around with a protector which I certainly appreciate (as I checked, as I... More
