Very close to the Ottawa airport, but not noisy like so many airport rooms can be. Clean and well appointed, a good choice for a central stay in Ottawa. Just a heads up: it's a motel not a hotel, so all rooms are accessed from outside and there are no central hallways; I'm more than ok with that - motels... More

Excellent place. Terrible internet service. Wouldn't connect even through a hard line. Location good. Service good. Will stay there again. Will recommend to other people. Summer spot for sure. Close to everything.

We stay here as it is close to people we are visiting, its clean and comfortable. If we were staying longer a microwave would be useful as eating out is expensive and not healthy.There is a coffee machine and fridge in the room, breakfast is Muffins and cereals which you take to your room to eat.

Pretty good location (easy 10 minute drive from downtown). Nice and quiet, very clean, friendly front desk staff, good price. Parking right outside your door. My only complaint could be that the breakfast (included) is best described as "continental", a euphemism for "muffins, coffee, juice and cereal boxes" and that there is no place to sit and eat it (you'd...

The room was great. We had a big comfortable bed and the couch folded out into another one. The television was huge and the variety of channels was refreshing compared to other experiences. The staff was very kind and hospitable. The country style feeling make us feel very comfortable.

I usually have a hard time sleeping when travelling but their beds are amazing!!! Slept every night. Location was near Ottawa's main airport. Major roads were easy to get to as well. I will stay at Rideau Heights Inn the next time I'm in Ottawa!

My husband and I had our travel agent book us a room here for 1 night. We were not able to try the breakfast because we had to go to the airport at 2:30am. The room was on bottom floor, separate door entrance and we could park our car right outside the door. The bed was very comfortable and the... More

What a great little hotel on the edge of Ottawa. Easy to get to and reasonably priced. Lovely setting and well kept hotel. We are often in town to visit our son who is in University there and have often driven by this place staying closer to downtown. Decided to try it and will definitely return. Front desk staff were...

The hotel was clean and welcoming. The desk clerks were polite, friendly and helpful. The room wasn't luxurious, nor was it expected to be, but it was clean and comfortable. Only small issue was with noisy heating unit, similar to AC but hot. Continental breakfast was sparse but muffins were good. Suited us as we were in a hurry. Nice... More

Third time we've stayed here at this time of year, and the first time we've had any kind of problem. Previous stays have been in the ground level block, but this time we were put on the first floor of an adjacent black. The room was on the outside corner of the building & think they left a lot of...
