It was clean, lots of parking spaces, quiet but not luxurious- it is a 2 star after all. The beds were comfortable, contental breakfast was adequate. There seemed to be a stale or smake smell in the room- need to be aired out.

Taking into consideration that this is a 2 star motel, staying here was a very good experience for me. The location is quiet and reflects rural Ottawa very well. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. I had asked for a quiet room and was given room 19, with neighbours only on one wall. I stayed for 5 nights and... More

The room was clean and comfortable, I don't have a single complaint. It was very well priced and great to just stay the night. We came in at around 1am and the staff was still friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend it.

This motel was well priced and clean. When we got to the room and opened the door, it had a bit of a stale smell, but with the air conditioning on it went away quickly. Speaking of air conditioning, it is the old style that roars all night long, but if your tired enough, you can sleep through anything! The... More

I had to travel to Ottawa on business, and had very limited time. I was looking for a hotel near the airport and conference centre to minimize my commuting time, and every other hotel in the area was booked. This hotel was in an ideal location. The room was clean and the price was good. The staff was friendly and... More

We were just in Ottawa for the night and had booked on line. We were very happy with the room. It was clean and fresh. The bed was excellent. It was quiet and has a very attractive park like setting. The staff was very friendly. There's coffee in the room and cereal and muffins for breakfast. The price was quite... More

We stayed here for a Monday night and again for two nights the following weekend. The location is great when you are flying in or out of Ottawa. The front end staff is fluently bilingual and helpful. To see the city we could drive to the nearby Greenboro Park and Ride, located just north of the South Keys Shopping Center... More

I wasn't sure what to expect at an older model inn. However, it was very clean and had had some new refurbishments in the bath area and newer bedding and TV. Overall, I was very pleased and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Also the service was very friendly.

Stayed here for one night when flying into Ottawa. Bed was very comforable and staff were friendly and accommodating throughout the stay. The breakfast is self service and there is nowhere to sit, but then this is not a problem because the room is very spacious and there are outside areas to sit out if the weather is good. There...
