“Misrepresented. Wish i had seen these first.”
Reviewed May 19, 2004

My girlfriend and I recently went on a trip to Ottawa. Upon reviewing this website, Travelocity and a few others, we chose the Travelodge. It seemed well reviewed and pretty cheap. But there were a few things promoted here that just weren’t true. First off, the executive floor. What a waste. As advertised there is an executive lounge with Internet access, this was locked and we were told had not been used in over a year. Each room is supposed to have a sofa, ours did not. The balcony doors would not open either, seems the balconies were being repaired; they were in pretty sorry shape. The write-ups mention a Valet, they obviously had no Valet. One review we read mentioned a continental breakfast [not this site] the breakfast was an additional charge. The room came with one robe, even though they were aware probably two weeks in advance that two people would be occupying the room. There were no slippers anywhere to be found. The “Zen lounge” off of the oriental lounge, was drained of water, and taped off with yellow caution tape.
The hotel was not completely horrible, it was clean and the floor we were on was very quite, even though the hotel was almost entirely booked. The street they are situated on, called “Carling Ave” is central to almost everything. All the major streets leading downtown and to the Airport seem to diverge from it. All the staff was pretty friendly.

Since my one experience with a Travelodge years ago was pretty bad, we were not prepared for the excellent accommodations and service. Our room was spacious and had a sofa and easy chair, plus a mini-kitchen.
We spent 5 days there for a conference, so our food was included, which was also excellent. My only warning: if you don't have children, you probably don't want to be there during March break. It's a destination for families since it has a large indoor waterpark (with real palm trees, yet!), and children played hockey in our hall all day and evening. Although their television is wired to provide internet service (I'd never seen this before) it was not operational while we were there.

The Travelodge just had a major renovation done...a wave pool, hot tub and water slide. The hot tub was wonderful, the wave pool was different, but the water slide was not operational yet. The rooms are spacious and remodelled as well. The location was especially convenient to go to the Corel Centre for a hockey game and there were restaurants, and shopping nearby as well.... We would not hesitate to stay there again...

I spent two nights at this hotel back in August of 2001. I spent around 75$ for a night and they might have changed it since I was there. For the money, it was a good hotel. The rooms were clean and included a coffee maker. The only disadvantage was the location, it is not located downtown and I didn't have a car so I ended up having to take public transit. At the time I had a difficult time finding a cheap hotel downtown. If you can get a hotel downtown for around the same price that I payed I would highly recommend it, espcially if you don't have a car.
