My lease had ended on August 1rst and needed a place to stay until my appartamant was ready for me to move in. i had heard bad things about this place but I was absolutely suprised by my experience.

The only reason we stayed the night was because we were wrongfully evicted from another hotel on Canada day..with no other hotel available.. We got charged 100 for the night in a room with the narrowest dirtiest bathroom in the world! I rather squat outside like a homeless person! As we walked in the room I hadn't boyfriend inspect the...

Bedbugs. Swarms of bedbugs. An old dump with a lower class clientele. Frequent police visits, not that that would help you. Loud, rude punks amid welfare recipients. The name makes it seem nice. But its an old dump. Normal people do not stay there. Sleep in a phone booth rather that this dump.

If convenience is your top priority,this is excellent. We didn't want to drive in downtown Ottawa so the Transit is a 5 minute walk. The Westboro neighbourhood is quiet ,safe ,and interesting. You could walk and shop inthe evening and feel safe. The hotel was quiet,1/2block from a major grocery store.It was nice to have a fridge.There is no coffee... More

On the up side it had a mini bar fridge, microwave, and cable TV. The floors (bathroom excluded) were tile and looked fairly new. There was some noise from next door, but they quieted-down by bedtime. You'd think the walls were paper thin given the noise transmission, but the walls are painted cinder block. On the down side, the first... More

My Goodness thats really hard to believe or understand... Stayed here 1 night September 2004 and I would NEVER EVER stay here again. The rooms are... More

Stayed here for 1 night June 2004. This is the worst place to stay in Ottawa without a doubt. We were kept awake all night with people constantly coming and going and we were actually worried for our safety. If you must stay in this part of town, stay at a property on Carling avene which is less than a... More

Do not be fooled by the website!! It has pictures that are NOT taken at the Richmond Plaza. This place was just a nightmare. Reception staff was very rude and seemed upset that we arrived. There was a lot of suspicious activity going on at the motel all night long....cars and motorbikes constantly driving wildly in the parking lot...ultra-loud TVs,... More

I cancelled my reservation less than 30 minutes after making it, but this Motel charged me anyways I made a reservation at the Richmond Plaza Motel, and thus gave them my credit card information. My reservation was made around 2 days in advance. After making my reservation, I changed my mind and called back within 20 or 30 minutes and... More
