I stayed at this Algonquin residence building for 1 summer night. Staff was courteous but there were some problems w/ the key cards. The suite was much too warm when I went in (24-25 C), and it took a couple of *hours* to cool down to an acceptable level. The double beds seemed OK but by no means plush; the... More

The room was clean and the beds were comfy same for the pillows. This was not my first time staying at a residence from this chain and while the beds were the most comfortable it stopped there. The wifi they advertised was not working and for some reason in my room the ethernet port was blocked off so I couldn't... More

My teenaged son wanted to visit Calypso Water Park in Ottawa and see the sound and light show on Parliament Hill. We were on a tight budget so we picked the Algonquin College Residence for accommodations. It was perfect. 2 bedrooms gave mother and son comfort and privacy. The staff was excellent and helpful. I gave it a 5 star... More

Their description is accurate - you get exactly what they describe. If the very comfortable beds are meant for two, they better know each other biblically. Wi-Fi is unreliable. Service is average at best. Laundry is a pretty easy setup though.

Stayed 1 night. This is not an operating hotel but a student residence. Will sleep 2 comfortably but more will be a tight fit. For the price this place was great. Check in was quick and the room was clean and quite. Free parking. Lots of amenities steps away.

These dorms are perfect for student life but not for visiting family or business travel at all. There is nothing interesting around here except a shopping mall and everything else is pretty far away which will end up costing you traveling fees. Rooms and service are pretty cheap even the bed sheets are cheap and thin. Adding to that is... More

We stopped by before booking and were offline. We were shocked to learn the rate was so much higher in the lobby! The staff is comprised of young coed and all are very helpful and considerate BUT there are seasons when Neither HEAT OR A/C are available. This old centralized (Soviet-style) heating system may be okay with college youngsters but... More

The rooms were a bit of a walk from the front lobby, but were spacious compared to a hotel room (2 bedrooms with a shared bathroom and mini-kitchen). Not a luxury accommodation, but worked well for our large group of students. Wifi was tricky to get, but once logged in, worked well enough. Little store with snacks and drinks in... More

It's a college residence, making use of the off-season. The staff is young; perhaps they are hospitality students. It's nice to think that your accommodation dollar goes to support the school, instead of some cadre of rich folks somewhere else in the world. But the facilities are mediocre. Low grade appointments work OK. Hot water ran out. Very long walk... More
