Therefore we decided to stay a night in Ottawa before heading back (so much driving!). It was a quick decision made... More

To echo some of the other reviews here: this is a great value, the rooms are comfortable and spacious, the staff are friendly and helpful, the included hot breakfast is a pleasant surprise (and the prepared bags that allow you to hit the road quickly - nice touch!). I was here for 3 nights on the week of March 9/2015... More
