As a former Ottawa resident, I've recently been travelling back to Ottawa on business (and occasionally to see friends/attend weddings) and have been staying at many of the hotels downtown.
The Business Inn is an excellent value in the city. The rooms are large and spacious and equiped with desktop computer, printer and internet. I think the decor is average (there are nicer rooms in other hotels), but usually nothing comes close to the Business Inn at the price point they offer. Note its not a particularly romantic hotel and I would look elsewhere if you were coming here for a romantic getaway in the city.
The location of the Business Inn is pretty good - its further away from the Parliament Buildings and the market/canal area than many of the other downtown hotels in the city, but given how compact Ottawa is, you can get to most places by walking an extra 15-20 mins. The Business Inn is located close to one of the better nightlife areas in Ottawa, which is a plus if you are looking for nightlife.
All in all, a very good hotel especially for the price. Myself, I would normally chose to spend a bit more for slightly nicer accommodation (see my other reviews), but certainly, I otherwise have nothing bad to say about The Business Inn.
