Second visit to this hotel, first was a couple years ago for a social gathering, a 1-bedroom suite was used to accommodate about 16 people partying, it could have slept 4 or 5 comfortably I think...This second visit was great, hotel seemed even nicer than I remembered, and for the price it is a great choice. Well appointed kitchen, nice... More

I really liked the hotel. This was my first stay and the quality of the room, amenities and services were excellent. It is conveniently located and the staff are very helpful and responsive. I will surely not look elsewhere for my next stay at Ottawa.

Stayed in December 2014 for two nights. Looks like a concrete block and slightly dubious with a pool hall and bar just beside it, but pay no attention to that. It is a relatively quiet street, but no drunks or gangster elements hanging out around the place. It is located on Elgin and Maclaren, which makes it a central area.... More

My partner and I were travelling through Ottawa for a night, and found this place online. We couldn't believe the value (the "mini" suites are amazing - everything you could need!), and we would have stayed a few more nights if we had time. I was also super impressed with the fitness centre. It's not often you find a bench... More

Fine hotel with friendly staff. Spacious room which has everything, even a computer and printer! I used my own laptop and the wifi was good. Well equipped kitchen which is fine for longer stays. Have no complaint about my stay. Breakfast was also good. The area around the hotel might look a little bit run down but I didn't feel... More

Booked this hotel for my son to stay in prior to his return to university in Ottawa. First impressions are that this is a bit of a concrete block and the externals are functional with no particular charm. In side is a different story - the rooms are clean,sizeable and well equipped with big TV's, computers , small kitchen and... More

The rooms include almost everything you could thought of. Very home like. The TV has all the channels. Excellent breakfast. Very helpful and nice staffs. Good location since it is 15 min walk to the mall and parliament hill. The street below also has abundant restaurants.

During our visit to Ottawa we stayed at the Business Inn located at 180 MacLaren Street and the accommodation couldn't have been more perfect. The rooms were very generous in size. The furniture was great and in great condition. There was a comfortable couch and a dinning table in the room. The queens bed was also very comfortable. The room... More

If you're looking for a very reasonable, roomy and clean place to stay in Ottawa, located just a ten minute walk from the downtown core, the Business Inn & Suites is your go to place. We've stayed here for many years and the apartment size rooms with kitchenette and balcony are simply our "home away from home". Indoor parking, comfortable... More
