“$186.41 CAD for 7 Days Lodging”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

The University of Ottawa opens their dorm rooms to tourists during the summer and I got a weekly deal including 13% tax for $186.41 Canadian Dollars (about $190.84 US Dollars). They provided daily room cleaning, fresh towels, soap and shampoo and a common bathroom with showers. The rooms are not air-conditioned and are small but clean. They also have more expensive rooms with individual TVs and kitchens, but the dorm I stayed in had TVs every other floor and kitchens on the other floors. There were other tourists in the doors from all over the world taking advantage of the good value the university provides for tourists trying to save on lodging expenses. You can take a bus from the airport and the VIA rail train station that drops you off very near the university for about $3 each way. This is not fancy accommodations but for less than $200 for seven nights ain't bad.
