I had the worst hostel experience with cardinal suites. They made a mistake on my booking, I ended up not having a bed to sleep on and had to crash on the sofa in the living room. The staff was nowhere to be found and didn't pick up the phone. The bathroom was disgusting. Don't stay with them!

We stayed in one of the Guest Houses managed by Cardinal Suites. Essentially this is a boarding house. Unbeknownst to us, the manager asked long term residents to move out to accommodate our larger group. We were eventually credited for a large over- billing to our VISA, but it wasn't a pleasant negotiation. (ex. manager called my home before 6... More

I stayed at the Cardinal Suites for 2 nights. The hotel was priced better than most hotels in Ottawa ($88/night). For that price, this hotel is excellent value. The rooms are large, with a kitchen, full fridge, appliances, television and wired Internet. Our room was clean and presentable. The bed was not particularly comfortable, but it was liveable. Additionally, this... More

We were travelling in a group and few of us had booked this hotel through its website. Being new to ottawa and to stay with group I booked this hotel on my arrival here. I found that rooms were quite small in size with no space to walk around or living space and absolutely no place to keep things. The... More

Cardinal Suites is a independently-owned hotel (the owner lives on the second floor) that doesn't have a whole lot of frills, but gets the job done for a good price. It's not downtown, but then again it's much cheaper than being downtown, and still only about 15 minutes away from everything. The Executive Suites are not really what you'd expect... More

When I initially booked with Cardinal Suites, I booked with Aircanada.com. For me it was the easiest way to see all the available hotels in the city and it gave me price quotes and availability, which was what I needed. So Cardinal suites seemed like a good deal, I checked out their website and the room that I thought I... More

Perfect accommodation for simple travel. Not paying big prices for ammenities which I never use (huge lobbies, fountains, pools, conference rooms, etc). Simple, clean, efficient rooms complete with kitchenettes (saves breakfast and dinner $$$$ - don't have to have "take out" all the time) Great staff - helpful and informative.

I was taking a train to Montreal and then planned to drive to Ottawa, where I had a room booked at the Cardinal Suites on Merivale. The train was five hours late getting to Montreal, so I tried called the hotel to say I would be arriving late. No answer. I tried a few more times, and still nobody picked... More

The place we stayed at on Laurier Drive (they have several locations) was below average to say the least. The guy told us when we picked up the key, that the place was, "the cream of the crop." When we got there, we immediately saw it was far from. The location is not bad, but is by no means, "downtown"... More
