This was by far the most affordable, downtown located, place to stay that was not a hostel or airbnb listing. For a family of four this residence was the only one that could accommodate us in one room. You will certainly feel like you are in a uni residence when you step into the room! It was clean, with strange... More

I stayed here for two days May 11 and May 12, 2015 and have no disappointments. The residence is very friendly if you are on a tight budget but still comfortable to spend a night. I was impressed by the students doing the check ins, very conversational, very tuned in to what a customer means to the business. I got... More

Stayed here as part of a group. There are many different residences and options varying from traditional dorm to multi room suites. Some of the options are extremely inexpensive. I have stayed in university residences before and was surprised at how poorly these rooms were cleaned after the school year. Massive stains in carpets, holes in walls, non functioning thermostats...... More

Stayed here with one other person recently, for a concert. The "hotel" is located so close to everything, as well as bus stops. Price is decent for the city. Expected a two-room, kitchenette suite; however, we ended up on the 20th floor with a double bed and a love seat (which ended up serving as a second bed for myself),... More

We stayed here in the last two weeks of the summer holidays. The person making our booking made a mistake which was cleared up very quickly As other reviewers have stated, it's a university dorm... if you want the ritz, go and stay there. My partner and I were able to stay in a two room dorm for $51 a... More

This is very basic accommodation as it's university dorm rooms being rented out. I stayed in a 2 bedroom with bathroom unit and had air conditioning. The room was reasonably clean and there were basic amenities. The towels were really in bad shape though and not very pleasant to use. The location is great as the downtown is walkable from... More

For such a low price, its isn't too bad. We stayed a night. Very clean (could smell cleaning product when walking in, but got used to it). And the check-in was at 4:00 pm, which was a bit of hassle. But it had all necessitates, clean bed, (outdated furniture though, but it didn't matter, I was just looking for a... More

I stayed for 5 nights at the University of Ottawa residences, in a traditional single room. There is no air conditioning, but luckily the weather was not that hot in Ottawa. For the price (35/night) it was totally worth it. A couple pieces of advice, ask for extra pillows and towels/face cloths. They only give you one of each, but... More

We stayed here for a week in July in a two-bedroom unit at 90 University. I think the earlier reviews are quite fair in their descriptions - the accommodation is basic but I didn't expect more for the price. I just wanted a place to sleep after all. It was clean, the beds were comfortable and we were lucky enough... More

It was definitely 1 of the best deal we got during our trip to Eastern Canada. The room was beyond our expectation. Don't get your hopes high; this is not a hotel (esp. service wise). The room is conveniently big and the bathroom is undoubtedly bigger than standard room in most 3* hotels. They also provides endless supplies of towels.... More
