I stayed here for several months as a result of my new build being delayed at the last minute. The motel is very clean and quiet. In the summer months you can take advantage of its almost park like setting which is very relaxing. The staff are very professional. Its a motel but doesn't really feel like a "motel" and staying here is much better than staying in a crowded name brand chain in my opinion. If your looking for a place to stay in Ottawa make sure to give this place a look.

Hotel's Favorite
This is my favourite hotel to stay in when I visit my family in Ottawa -and I’ve stayed at the Westin! There is such an obvious pride of ownership here. All the fixtures are updated, the beds and pillows are new, clean, and very comfortable, the carpets are plush and clean, the towels and linens are blindingly white, and the bathroom fixtures sparkle and shine. The front desk/lobby is so clean, it’s the first thing you’ll notice. There isn’t a dust ball, mark, or scuff anywhere. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. I have a feeling this might be a family owned business. They are newcomer Canadians and an incredible asset to this country -hardworking, dedicated, helpful, and kind. In terms of amenities, this hotel is very basic, which is ideal for a no-frills gal like me. They offer a bar fridge, A coffee maker with coffee/sugar/coffeemate, and a continental breakfast in the lobby every morning. There is lovely scenery surrounding the building and there’s free parking too. Their rates are reasonable and worth every penny, since this inn far exceeds the standards of what I would expect for a no-frills stay. I hope the owners and staff continue to prosper with this wonderful little hidden gem. They deserve it! Highly recommended!

Clean, tidy and maintained. No issues or complaints. Good value for the money. Snowed during the night and the snow was shoveled between the cars in the morning...nice touch. Will return and use motel again

We were offered a great deal for a second night and decided to take advantage of the offer. Our room was spotless and I had requested a microwave which was there when we arrived. Their safety protocols were all in place. Whenever we visit Ottawa we stay here, and have never been disappointed.
