This was the only hotel we could book at the end of May and, for us was too far out of Ottawa where family and business required us. The Monterey is located on the far side of Ottawa airport. The resto was still closed, although the website said it had reopened. This meant driving somewhere and there were very few... More

We stayed there for a family event, 5 of us rented 4 rooms in different buildings and all were very impressed. All of us would stay here again. We rented a pet room on the water which was perfect. Beds very comfortable. All 5 of us gathered each night to sit and watch the boats on the Rideau River. Room... More

Clean, comfortable, and friendly staff. Good healthy breakfast (self serve continental). Pool was not open in early June. Rates are good. Small dog welcome and ground level rooms offer patio exit to riverbank. New dock being built in June may allow for canoe use in summer. Evidence of renovation and updates obvious. Road sign a bit hard to see at... More

I wasn't expecting much-we were there for one evening and it was a cheap hotel to stay while we were in Manotick for a soccer game. But the main reason we picked this hotel was because it was close to the field and because it had an outdoor heated pool. Except it didn't, which they tell you when you get... More

It was okay for just a night. Pros: Clean, friendly staff, reasonably priced Cons: Terrible sleep quality (you could hear when people in adjacent rooms were moving or using water, a lot of noise from the street), the bathroom was too small, WiFi was terrible I would consider it more as a motel than a hotel specifically since the individual...

The Monterey Hotel is closed to but not too close to the airport and a great place to leave your car but a better place to come home to after a long trip. I loved the friendly staff who guided me in and out and made me want to come back
