Having read the other reviews and checked out what can be online we were not surprised by our accomodations. The bathroom was new and the place clean enough though there are signs of wear on the door and walls. It is quiet at night and the breakfast is a bonus. Since it is cheap to stay here there will be people who take advantage in this case. Our second morning there it was a challenge to get close to the breakfast food because a couple of women with many children took possession of the waffle maker and passed it from one to the other like a tag team. The woman minding the buffet seemed busy enough keeping the place stocked because these same groups had every child walking out of the dining area with plates of bread and sweet rolls and more apples than people in their group. It does not make for a quiet meal for others. I did ask at the desk of the amount of food that is carted away and I was told that the discouraging thing about is that is is often in the garbage of the rooms mostly uneaten. What a shame. We also asked that peanut butter not be put out since my husband has a severe allergy. We had to move to escape it at our table and the lady at the next table dropped some and smeared it on the table top with her finger to mouth. Ugh. So when you see it on a buffet never assume that people are not dropping it and leaving a film of peanut butter on surfaces that may or may not be wiped after each person has eaten, Other than life and death concern the staff were friendly and seemed to care. Construction all over Ottawa's downtown make it a nightmare, so the free parking is a bonus.
