This property was not fancy. The hide-a-bed showed the grime of not being replaced soon enough, there was a chunk out of the frame on a shabby print on the wall, the carpet could have been a bit cleaner, but the bathroom fixtures and sheets were clean, our room was quiet, and we had a nice-sized flat screen HD TV...

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.

Good Morning, Thank you very much for your positive review of the Rideau Heights Inn. First, I would like to apologize that the complimentary WI-fi wasn't working during your stay.

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

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
