While I acknowledge that the access problems for this site are not the fault of the vendor, they do impact on potential visitors.

There are two bedrooms to most of... More

The front desk personnel were extremely friendly and the hotel room was really clean. I was surprised that the room consisted of separate rooms, which included very comfortable beds, and a kitchenette.The bathroom was also very nice, but the shower curtains were a tad bit dirty. The proximity was great due to being near the bus stop with a bus... More

Personnel is very friendly and helpful. Student accommodations with the necessities; groceries and LCBO and beer store within walking distance. Suggestions: have Transit map/ Carte de reseau available as brochure and day/ weekpass info; become a kiosk for buspasses. The showerhead needs attention and the fridge needs balancing. Enjoyed our stay.

We were a 2 family group of 12 plus a baby. The rooms were clean. And the decor is standard but decent. It is a great choice for families because of the kitchenette. There is a full apartment size fridge, microwave, cabinets, small table and chairs and a kitchen sink. When housekeeping cleaned our room they removed the soaps and... More

Let get one thing straight out the gates; this is student living, literally. You’re staying at a small schools dorm. There now that that is out of the way we can go over what make this low budget option fantastic and what some of the clear compromises are. The pros are that you will get way more space than is...

This’s my fourth time staying at this residence. I still think this’s still the best and the least expensive accommodation in Ottawa. Free parking. You pay one standard price and get a suite with 2 rooms with double beds. It’s perfect for solo traveller and family. Yes it’s away from downtown but getting there by car is not a long... More

It does have a mini kitchenette with a microwave and fridge and TVs in both bedrooms. It's a great price, it's clean, and parking is free. It's perfect for staying in... More
