It was a great stay, room was clean and the staff were friendly. I would stay again for sure! And it was a great location, off a busy road but easy to get to! The pressure for the shower was awesome too.

We spent Canada Day in Ottawa and needed a place to sleep before heading for Toronto. So I booked this place through Ottawa tourism website, based on practicality and affordability. It served our needs well. However, avoid arriving there late - just to avoid that nasty man at the reception who will make your check-in so unpleasant and long, you... More

This is essentially a motel with a grander name, but the price is right - the room was clean, the wi-fi surprisingly fast and the water hot. The walls are paper-thin though, the pillows are not particularly comfortable, and the electrical outlets are hidden behind the furniture. If price and convenience for the EY Centre or the airport are overriding... More

Cost performance is good. But I hope more clean room. I regret that couldn't eat breakfast because amount are not enough. I hope shower nozzle has flexibility because I felt to difficult to take a shower for my daughters.

Got this room for my boyfriend and I who needed some alone time away from roommates. The room was very nice, bed was comfy and everything seemed pretty clean! Would definitely return. Location is very good as well for travelers.

This is a great small Inn close to everything we needed. The rooms are cozy with comfortable beds and furnishings. There are coffee makers and fridges to make the stay easy. The prices are very good and lobby staff helpful and friendly. When visiting Ottawa we will book there again.

Room was spacious and comfortable.somewhat outdated but clean. Very affordable which is what drew me in. I skipped the breakfast for a tim hortons run but breakfast was included in the price. This is a great place if you're looking for someplace to lay your head and you aren't worried about fancy.
