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

This room was so small you had to stand in the tub to close the door. Sink had no counter space to keep your toiletries. Great wifi... More

We stayed here on our way home from a family wedding. Home is Victoria BC. The hotel was close to the airport. It was a really reasonable price. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. Even though this hotel is on a relatively busy road, we didn't hear any noise at all. When we checked in, the... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Found out hotel has just changed hands to become a Ramada when we checked in. Had trouble with their new systems working our credit card. The ground floor room (258) has been renovated, but not the tub/toilet area. It needs updating too. The bed was comfortable, but double bed felt too small for my husband &... More

We stayed here while in town for a wedding although not the one that was at the hotel over the weekend. It was still quite loud when we returned from our wedding at midnight with the noise etc. Staff were friendly and eager to please.

Quite literally, they said they would do whatever necessary to please us!! Rare treatment from a smallish property. The room was spotless and exactly as shown in the pictures.... More
