stayed at this place for a night back in February - on a short visit to Ottawa. Location is great. Only 15 mins drive from the city centre and the traffic isn't bad on a weekday. I checked in late at night. Did inform them upfront so it was not a problem. The room was on a bigger side. I... More

We had a wonderful stay. We checked in very late and the staff members was kind and efficient. The room was clean, updated and comfortable. It was a little warm when we walked in (the heater was cranked) and so it was quite dry for sleeping. Other than that, everything was perfect. The continental breakfast was perfect. Thanks for a...

This hotel is an 'unsung' gem of Ottawa! We stayed for two nights and were struck with the cleanliness, easy access to Ottawa, and of course, the friendly staff! The only difficulty we had was keeping a constant temperature in the room...very cold outside and the heating was a little 'old'....but not a major inconvenience! Good to know that they... More

It is really nice to know that a family owned business sets the bar high with respect to welcoming the guest at the front desk, providing a decent breakfast, providing best in tv programming and most importantly cleanliness. The accommodation was really very good compared to those corporately owned hotels; amenities provided far exceeded your competition. A small example is... More

We stayed for a long weekend and would come again! The office staff were friendly, efficient, and provided excellent customer service. Our late late check in wasn't a problem. The room was clean and well equipped. The washroom and vanity area was beautiful and modern. Fridge, free WiFi, and large flat screen with mega cable package was a plus! Parking... More

All we wanted was a welcoming spot for us and our two small dogs and (at $10 per dog per night) we found it at Rideau Heights. From check-in to morning coffee/continental b'fast, we found staff to be accommodating (pardon the pun) and friendly. This isn't a fancy inn but the room we had was clean, comfortable and well appointed,... More

With a -23C outside, and the room door being directly outside I was a bit affraid. But the room was warm. Lighting is poor, especially if you want to do reading in bed. A light at both side of the bed would help. The good point is that I was able to plugin my electric car and get a full... More

I was flying standby from the Ottawa airport and was bumped from some flights; I found out at 9:30pm I would have to spend the night in Ottawa. I wasn't driving and almost all of the nearby hotels were fully booked for the evening. I booked at the Rideau Heighs Inn via Hotwire for $120/night including taxes, as it was... More

My king size suite was fantastic. Very clean and modern. Hotel staff very friendly. I love where the hotel is placed, isn't loud from traffic you don't hear a single thing and it's tucked away in a corner which is perfect. I felt very comfortable in the area and at this hotel. Great overall experience and time spent and worth... More

Stayed here recently. Good location close to Hunt Club Road and a relatively short drive to Downtown Ottawa. Quiet spot with little traffic noise. Bathroom fan is extremely noisy but other than that a good basic and inexpensive place to stay.
