“Not so good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

I did not like a lot the hotel. The personal was nice, but the location and the hotel's rooms were not the best ones... My brother (due of his dog) had to stay in the ground floor in a smoking room, not the same to have a dog and be fine with the smoking smell... We asked to changed it, but they could not help us... hotel policy... :(
The hotel does not have their own restaurant, so they recommend us one bar to have the breakfast. The parking space was big.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. The pets, as you mentioned, do have to be zoned to the smoking floor of the hotel (as they are on the ground floor with easy access to outside). We hope that you found our on-site restaurant and further restaurant recommendations satisfactory.

The staff at Days Inn Downtown Ottawa were friendly and knowledgeable. Igor helped us booked a room, easily, over the phone, and Dan was a great resource at the front desk during our stay.
There is plenty of parking conveniently available behind the hotel, and we never waited more than 5 minutes for a cab from this location.
LOTS of restaurant and pubs within walking distance, and the Parliament building was only a 20 minute stroll down the road.
I would HIGHLY recommend this location to anyone visiting the Capitol. It's close to a lot and is a clean and comfortable. During the hot and humid summer, the room was nicely air conditioned, and spacious.

Room Tip: *Save on cab fare and WALK to the various tourist attractions - you'll get to see more of the ci...

Went there on 2011. The hotel is clean, room is very comfortable and the bed is large, warm and soft. The environment is silent and clear, so I had an excellent sleep there. Location is great, maybe not the best (depending on your interests), but is very near shopping centers, bus stop, restaurants, tourist attractions etc. I would personally get back there whenever I go to Ottawa.

Location was great - only a few minutes walk to the market, drinking, eating, and shopping. Can't beat that. Guy working at the front desk was friendly. They are pet friendly with no charge, but if you travel with a pet, you have to stay on the first floor in a smoking room...so we had a smelly stay...and now the dog is smelly. The smokey odors in the room combined with the first floor outdoor entrance made us feel a bit like we were staying in a crack den motel but the price was right for the location and parking was only $5. The smoking room with all its smokey goodness smells could have been made better if they changed the bedspread with every guest...the sheets were fine but the nasty smoky bedspread was not pleasant. Otherwise fine and we made it out alive...would think 3 times before booking again.

Room Tip: Try to avoid first floor smoking section - unless you like to smoke/enjoy the smell of old smoke. Re...

Typical Days Inn. Stay because it is located where you need to be and it is cheaper than a lot of places. The staff are business like but not friendly. The lobby is small and not inviting. The room's greatest asset was that the bed was very comfortable. It was quiet as well until the midnight fire alarm went off and we had to leave our room for an hour while the fire department searched the hotel and found it safe to return.

It's fine but no great shakes.
