Stayed here for 2 nights with my father. The place is quiet and reasonably clean. Definitely potential in this building. Very small continental breakfast. No refrigerator but there is an ice maker down the hall. It suited our needs, though it doesn't take pets so I had to obtain care for my dog. I'd probably come back again.

The police were there arresting people twice during our two day visit. The place is not well kept, the breakfast is inadequate, the room was bleak. Value for money is poor. The location is fine, but Ottawa is so small that even if you went downtown you can get everywhere quickly.

It was cheap, the beds were comfy and the sheets clean, the desk staff were pleasant. However, this motel is being sold, half is already out of use, so it's being allowed to run itself in the ground. The fridge was filthy and on checking under the beds as we left, I wish I hadn't! Breakfast was OK. Easy bus... More

Wow. This place is just awful. Wi-fi was down, the room, though a smoking room, smelled absolutely horrible and the place is just, in general, really run-down. Not a pleasant neighbourhood and nothing to recommend this place at all but it was, as far as I could tell, insect-free, so that's a ... plus? If you are thinking about staying... More

Stayed here for 2 nights (June 26, 27). Hotel outdoor grounds are dirty with trash laying around. Rooms are not much better. Carpets need cleaning or replaced. In room coffee maker had last guests coffee filter still in it. Took forever to get hot water in the shower. They advertise free wifi, but it never worked while we were there.... More

We wanted a place close to Parliament Hill for Canada Day Celebrations. This older property contained clean rooms. Wallpaper in bathroom a bit dated. Beds very comfortable. Rooms quite affordable. Good access to downtown. The only negative thing- we requested a non smoking floor and the smell of pot kept wafting down the hallway. We would stay there again.

We stayed here while in Ottawa... If your like me, you would rather spend your time out and about and the hotel is just a place to sleep.. This place wasn't a Hilton but it wasn't a dive either.. It is affordable, clean (my room was anyways).. Staff was nice also. It cost me a 100$ for a night and... More

This hotel is the most decrepit place that I nearly stayed. Extremely sketchy neighbourhood. It has boarded up buildings on the property and no staff on duty overnight. We left. Find somewhere else for a little more money

This is property is waiting for city zoning amendment for residential development. Hotel is on its last leg and no money is spent on maintenance. Stay away if you can. Horrible stains on carpet, holes in beddings, smell in the room.
