After 24 hours on the road my husband and I couldn't wait to check into a hotel and rest. This property was nice and clean and safe and the price can't be beat. I was pleased with the room and toiletries provided as well. The breakfast was more than I expected and offered a nice variety and enough to keep... More

After being severely disappointed in the Super 8 hotels we have stayed in in the Iowa/Illinois area, this one was a pleasant surprise. After several long days on the road with our children we were pleased to find that the manager had upgraded us to a larger room.

There are some Super 8 properties where you will not hurry back after one stay. This is not one of them! Friendly staff, clean and comfortable, decent hot breakfast offerings and a reasonable rate. Convenient to a number of restaurants and gas stations / mini-marts and less than a 5 minute drive to downtown Ottawa.
