True, the outside stairs need a paint job; the furnishings are dated but to have a tea served in the lobby from 3-5pm with crackers and cheese and cookies is a delight after spending hours wandering Ottawa. The breakfast was the best self serve one I have encountered in all my travels. The room was clean and the mattress comfortable....

This place is one block from dozens of stores, pubs and the Byward Market. It is a very basic hotel but the staff, food and little extras make it a perfect place to have a quiet stay in the heart of Ottawa. I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

The inn is very clean, comfortable and well located. We enjoyed the room, found the staff to be very helpful and accommodating and would stay there again. The breakfast is very good and is much more than the stated continental breakfast. Thank you for a great weekend!
