This place has decent sized clean rooms with couch, computer and printer, large screen TV, small desk, and a bathroom, closet, and small kitchen with a fridge/freezer and the usual appliances. Wifi was good. There was also a balcony though the view was mostly of other buildings. I wasn't too keen on some of the things like very large bulky... More

This is a great hotel. I've stayed there at least 5 times during the past year. This past weekend, I booked a last minute room deal and it was only $92! I arrived and my room was an apartment. So much room and very clean. The bed is really comfy. I slept for 9 hours which is rare. The wifi... More

It's central, comfortable and spacious, good services, and relatively inexpensive. I've used it a few times a year for many years, and it has actually improved as the rooms and services have been updated. I especially appreciate the larger-than-average rooms with plenty of amenities.

Great location for a business visitor or tourist, on the corner of Elgin Street, the heart of Ottawa Senators territory, surrounded by entertainment and eating places, very close to the heart of the city, and easy walking to everything.

This was a real find. We drove our grandson back to university after a visit and needed a reasonable and comfortable hotel for overnight. This was it. Our room was recently redone - new bathroom, tile, doors - very clean and neat. And it was huge, more like a bachelor apartment - sink, counter and all. Plus there were two... More

Nothing but praise for this inexpensive but feature laden hotel. We stayed in the smallest of the suites, a 'nanosuite', and it was great. Two flatscreen tv's, leather lazyboy, full kitchen equipped with dishes, etc., etc. Extremely clean and a nice hot breakfast in the morning. No other hotel for us in Ottawa. Added bonus: Sens Mile and excellent nightlife... More

There was a galley kitchen with microwave, coffee maker, electric kettle, fridge and a coffee bean grinder . Also provided were two televisions and a computer with really fast WiFi. Breakfast is...

This was a totally unexpected treat! Excellent location near the Rideau Canal, within walking distance of all the main attractions (museums and Rideau shopping centre and market), the suite was brand new and superb. Great bed, modern furnishings, 2 TVs, a large multi-level desk with computer, monitor and comfortable office chair, a spacious fully-equipped kitchen, glass and chrome dining table... More

Amazing holiday in large suite with a comfy bed with extremely clean bedsheets, soothing pillows, flat TV, office area with fast internet. Excellent service and generous breakfast. People are very helpful and underground parking (extra) is very convenient. I'd go back next time

Our stay at the Business Inn & Suites exceeded my expectations. It was a great value for a downtown location. The room we stayed in may have been to newly renovated, everything seemed to be new and clean. The room included a kitchen with a microwave, stove and a fridge. There were two wall mounted televisions as well a computer... More
