“Minimal Breakfast - Reasonable Room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

The room was good and seemed clean. The TV was a good-sized flat screen with a fair number of cable channels.

The bathroom was small with floor space the width of the toilet to step out of the shower.

We dealt with two good sized spiders and saw at least one other bug that we didn't get.

The coffee was weak and the muffins, cereal, etc. were very basic.

This establishment is located away from the downtown area of Ottawa, near the airport. The grounds are clean and well kept. There are a number of eating establishments close-by but not within walking distance. Unfortunately, there is was no microwave provided in the room, so there is no way to re-heat leftovers from a restaurant, or in our case, a delivered pizza. (which was from Milano's and was excellent by the way. Delivery menus available in the Inn Office).
All staff we dealt with were friendly, courteous and professional. Information they provided regarding eating and shopping in the area was very helpful.
The room was very clean and and spacious. I liked the layout of the toilet and shower being in a separate room from the bathroom sink, hair dryer, and extra large mirror.
The included continental breakfast was satisfactory, but it should be noted that there is no eating area in the lobby. Trays are provided to take your breakfast selections to your room.
Not a problem during nice weather, but not so sure about inclement or cold weather, although the walk to the Lobby from the rooms is covered.
Judging by the number of cars in the parking lot, the place was quite full of guests, but we never heard any extraneous noise during our two night stay.
All in all, a very pleasant stay, and we are already booked in to return again this September.

Visiting our granddaughter we chose here as it was close to her.
Very clean and the bed was so comfy best we have ever had, will be staying here again on our next visit.
Only down side the room next door had their AC/Heating fan on which vibrated through to our room and was quite noisey.

If you are looking for a good clean room in the south of Ottawa at a reasonable price this is a good choice! It's not a Delta but nicely put together very pleasant setting and the staff are very amiable.

We were in Ottawa for the last weekend of Winterlude. The hotel was priced well for what it provided; not a 'swanky' place to stay but the room was clean and comfortable. Coffee in your room and our room had a bar fridge that we could store some essentials in. The complimentary continental breakfast was good and what you would expect - coffee, tea, juice, pastries, muffins, small boxes of cereal, milk, etc. We took advantage of it while there for the two mornings and it was worthwhile.
The drive to Ottawa is just a couple of minutes and it is close to the bay at the end of the Rideau Canal so you can skate into town if you wish.
Staff were friendly and knowledgeable.
The WiFi worked perfectly on my iPad2 and was included in the price. We were right next to the office so I cannot comment on its range.
We plan on booking again when we return for a visit in the summer.

Stayed there with my husband because it was the closest hotel to my work's x-mas party. It was cheap so I didn't know what to expect. Staff was very friendly. Our Room was clean and fairly updated, free wifi, fridge, free continental breakfast. Our king size bed was the most comfy bed ever (not even comparable to fairmonts, hilton's, & marriott's')!!. Overall very satified for the price.

We attended a major dog show in Ottawa.This hotel was minutes from the CE Center and the airport. Although we were under a flight path, you really could not hear the planes. Very comfortable bed! The grounds were grass and well treed. You park right in front of your room. Breakfast was basic muffins, coffee and cereal. Restaurants were all around the area within driving distances.We would stay there again.
