We were disappointed with the temperature of the pool water (even though we were promised water temps of 81 degrees over the phone). The kiddie pool was very warm (perhaps due to no apparent washrooms around the pool areas? We kept running back to our room to use the washroom.) Also, the bottom and sides of the pool are extremely rough (beyond the point of what would be required for safety). We all came home with scraped knees/elbows and damaged swimwear. Not enough towels in pool area (we brought our own). We didn't return to the pool the next morning, as we had planned.
Room was quite comfortable and clean. Not great insulation on door to prevent noise (it was March Break). Kids were disappointed to not have their regular TV programming (Treehouse or Disney Jr). It was handy to have the mini fridge. The bed was much more comfortable than the old mattress on the pull-out couch.
The room smelled of cigarette smoke covered up by perfume and their were burn marks ALL over the blanket on the bed, even though it was a non-smoking room.
Internet worked well and was nice to have.

Laurel,
Thank you for providing us with your feelings about your most recent stay with us. We are sorry you feel that the pool temperature was not at 81 as is our goal at all times, the last two weeks the pool water has been at 85 everyday which myself and Chief Engineer check it every morning and afternoon on our daily rounds of the hotel to ensure a comfortable experience for all of our guests. Also accept our apologies for the roughness of the pool surfaces, we hope you can understand the need for this to prevent any slips and falls when the surface gets wet. Once again we apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay and can assure you the entire staff of the hotel is committed towards improvement in all areas of our guest experience.

We were happy with our stay. Room was clean. Brand new very comfortable mattresses. The hotel is older and the rooms are showing it (stained tub, carpet thinning). The waterpark was great for the kids. Lifeguards were good. Pools are salt water so I appreciated the lack of chlorine. Towels were hard to come by in the pool. You weren't supposed to take your room ones there, but there never seemed to be any 'pool' towels at the waterpark. We ended up just bringing our room ones, no one said anything. Remember to bring flip flops or sandals to go to and from the pool. Overall for the price paid and the pool - well worth it and we will be back!

Room Tip: It's much quieter if you are not beside the pool.

This hotel is okay. I didn't book a room but attended an Anime convention called Naru 2U. It's a very small con in Ottawa and not the best con overall but they do have the best closing ceremonies. Always giving out prizes. Anyway, I find this hotel has a simple look but overall it looks good, clean and decent. If I had to stay there, I would.
