This hotel was one of the worst I've ever stayed in! I've stayed in hotels in "third world countries" that were better. I expected that a hotel in Canada's capital, that advertises "suites" would be at worst, mediocre. But this property was an abomination. After a 10 hour drive and my arrival being late evening, I was left with little... More

My family and I do a fair bit of travelling, and we appreciate and reading people’s reviews. Honest and realistic reviews have helped us making some of our travel decisions, so I would like to provide the same. We know the hassles of travelling, but also the enjoyment and excitement of it as well. We were on vacation, and looking... More

If you are looking for a centrally located affordable hotel then this might be what you are looking for. This hotel is a 10 minute walk from the city centre and a 2 minute walk to the restaurants and pubs on Elgin Street. We had a one bedroom suite with a king bed. The suite was more of an apartment....

We stayed as a family with 2 parents and 3 children for one night. We had a friendly receptionist and the suite had cooking facilities and a fridge. The furniture and sanitary installation dates easily more than a quarter of a century with extremely loud doors. But the spacious suite, the proximity to downtown and the price compensated easily for... More

I came to this hotel recently for the simple reason it had large rooms and was close to Elgin St. We were a Bachelor party with 6 friends staying the night. First thing that happens when we arrive is the guy at the service counter is distracted and distant all while cracking jokes with another male co-worker about the good... More

We reserved this site in advance via credit card. In the confirmation email, the hotel had told us that parking was included for $12 extra. We arrived to find the lot full so we had no place to park. A front desk staff member directed us to a lot nearby (not associated with the hotel, he told us, where parking... More

The place was great. I traveled with a family of 5. 2 adults 3 kids. The rooms were clean, but small. There wasn't much of a view but it was a great stay. No personal items were missing. Each day a maid would clean our rooms when we leave for the day. Stayed for 3 nights. Underground parking was additional... More

There is no two ways about it, this hotel is seasoned and there hasn't been a lot done to improve it. But the friendliness of the staff and it is kept cleaned more than makes up for it. I got a couple of rooms, one bachelor suite and a 1 bedroom suite. The bachelor suite are in a lot better... More

I've stayed at way too many hotels over the years, for either business or pleasure... This is easily the worst hotel, room, service/staff, and overall experience I've had (especially within north America... Yet Canada's capital). On route to Montreal, two friends and I decided to have a night out in our nations capital... Seriously hoping the rest of the city... More
