Stayed for one night on a quick trip to Ottawa. Located in a quiet neighbourhood. Felt safe and secure during our stay. We were able to park our truck right outside our room. Bed was very comfortable. Check in was quick and efficient. However this motel is showing it's age. The pull out couch was worn. The carpet needs a good steam cleaning. The comforter probably hadn't been laundered in ages because and I woke up in the middle of the night fully congested due to dust allergies. I was able to breathe after moving the comforter off the bed. Wi-Fi signal wasn't very strong and was intermittent so don't count on it. General cell phone signal was poor too. Maybe it's the area? We tried devices from two major carriers and had the same problem and . Skip the 'free breakfast' and coffee. It was awful. You qre better off going to a local drive-thru. If you need lotion or conditioner bring your own as they are not supplied. Liquid shower gel and shampoo are mounted to shower wall in a dispenser. Fridge was unplugged and there was no microwave. However we were able to use the microwave by the main desk. Would I stay here again? Probably not but I woudn't rule it out entirely. You get what you pay for so keep in mind your are paying for an inexpensive motel and all that goes with it.

Good Morning Dawn, Thank you for your detailed review. We appreciate all comments. I am glad you enjoyed parking in front of your room and the new mattresses! They were all replaced this year and we have had great feedback. I am happy to mention that we have replaced most of our flooring, painted all of the rooms and are in the process of replacing the couches! We do indeed launder all of our linen and perhaps it was the down filled duvet that was causing the issue. In regards to the breakfast, we offer coffee, tea, orange juice and a variety of cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit and muffins. The light breakfast is to get your day started and is reflected in the affordable pricing we offer. Thank you again for the review and we hope to be able to serve you again in the future.

Hotel's Favorite
I believe this is the 5th time I've stayed here in the past couple of years. Wonderful staff, clean rooms, "very" comfortable beds, great showers, fridge in room and nice size TV. To top it off the rates are excellent in comparison to other facilities. Close to the airport and easy access to anywhere in the city. Highly recommend Rideau Heights Inn for business or personal travel!!

Stayed here and was very happy with the accommodations. Clean and comfortable. Looks recently painted and bathroom Reno. Near airport so expect noise but not terrible. A hidden gem nice to stay somewhere not run by a franchise but a family.

We had a second floor room on one of the side buildings. There were no issues, although if you would prefer not to carry things up and down stairs, you may want to consider that when making a reservation. There is a sort of courtyard and it is possible to sit down and enjoy the sunshine.
