The last time I stayed at any EonoLodge was probably over 15 years ago and I swore I'd never stay in another one...but it was a dark and stormy night and I was tired of traveling. It was cheaper in Ottawa than going down the road an hour, so I chanced it. It was nice, clean, and much better than... More

We had a good stay until the third day. We woke up to a call from the front desk (Mr. Ramesh) and he told us we had to bring all our id info and card info up to the front desk by 2:00pm or we would be kicked from the premise, even though we provided all this on day one.... More

Rolled in last week for a brief overnight stay. Told the desk clerk cum manager that I had stayed there before and asked him for the Best Possible Rate. We did a 'dance' for about 5 minutes, as he tried to find my previous record using two credit cards and two different phone numbers before he finally found it. When... More

We stayed for one night and had no problems. The rate was pretty good and the room and motel was what we expected. There was a bit of a smell however and we think that our non-smoking room had previously been a smoking room. Breakfast was pretty basic and there were only two tables in the breakfast area (both occupied... More

After making a reservation on line where the total price was quoted, we arrived to check in and the amount due was higher than quoted. When I asked about this the on duty clerk said it was a "safe fee" and "convenience fee" that the manager adds to all reservations. After refusing to pay and showing them the reservation confirmation... More

I stayed in this property for almost a week. I had my friends come to visit me often. One of my friends had a small dog in the pet taxi and before she came to my room took the permission from the lady at the front desk to allow her pet for an hour for which she agreed. After 5... More

Stay clear! We chose this budget motel because of price, location and because they said they were pet friendly. As we entered to register we met the owner of the motel who has no customer service skills. You would think he would let the staff he hired for such a purpose serve the public so he could stay out of... More

One of the best motels in this price class. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Good overall value.

We picked this motel because of the reasonable price, however as the saying goes "you get what you pay for". We found our room to be reasonably clean - some spots were missed by the vacuum along the wall, however the bathroom was clean, as well as the bed. The place did have a distinct odor to it, which was... More

I travel for a living, on the road well over 200 nights out of the year. This property has problems from the rooms to the owners, and everything in between. An unbelievable stench permiated throughout the entire hotel, and the customer service was non-existant. You have a lot of other options in Ottawa, use them.
