I have stayed here for several conferences from 2000 until 2003. The elevator is slow. the stair wells look like they have not been cleaned at all. the supposed main entrance smells like a pool which is funny because the hotel does NOT have a pool. the only place to apparently eat in the hotel is a bar that usually...

I have been staying in this hotel for approximately 10 years now, maybe once or twice a month, and definitely not by choice (work chose this hotel for us). Honestly, it needs to be levelled and something else built on the location. When the current owners can't even see fit to change out the water damaged ceiling tiles in the... More

Stayed on a floor where one half was closed off due to a recent fire, so not a great asthetic. Room was clean but dated, as was bathroom. The view of the canal is really nice, but the balcony doesn't make you want to spend time out there. Bar in the lobby is pricey for where you are. Cheap place... More

Where do I start? From the moment we stepped through the door to our room we knew we had to get out of there. Non smoking room that smells like smoke, complete with cigarette burns on the comforter. Cobwebs on the ceiling, hair in the bathroom, poorly laid carpet, and an overall really bad feeling. The only plus was the... More

This hotel has recently suffered a downgrade from Comfort Inn to Econo lodge and for good reason. It is musty, dirty and dated. At least some of the reason for this is from fire damage on one of its upper floors. Although located on the river, the problems begin once you turn from the view and return to your room.... More

Stayed at Econo Lodge for 2 days recently. Pros: Continental Breakfast Included in rate of CND $ 84.50 per night. Room was quiet and comfortable. Room had fridge and microwave. Cons: Decor a bit tired and in need of modernization. Overall good place to stay in Smiths Falls.

No a/c ... Smelled terrible, burn marks on the beds. Washrooms where so dirty! They brought us a fan and discounted us $9.00 for no a/c. Called head office and they returned half my money and manager would not return his half. 3 weeks later and still no money back. Terrible horrid place !

Staff friendly. Room had a great view of Rideau. I had told them when I made the reservation that I had allergies and wanted a non smoking room on the ground floor. They said the lowest they could give me was on the 2nd floor. Someone seemed to have smoked in the room before me and the room smelled damp... More

When we arrived the outside obviously needed work, but as we entered the lobby gave us hope as it was clean and the staff were friendly. Unfortumately as we went in the elevator upto our room we smelled smoke and water. When we got to our floor it smelled very musty and you could tell there had been water and... More
