              econolodge has some "nice" hotels around the world but this one was really disappointing. It was ugly outside and inside, the staff was 80% in a bad mood. Except for an Asian lady at breakfast, the others hardly greeted you. The only reason we stayed there was the location and free parking...

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              It's fairly close to Parliament Hill - walking distance, although the unusual heat made it uncomfortable. Close to shopping.

              Our rooms were on the 2nd floor - an elevator would have been handy.

            • Single
              8.2

              The location is great and the bed was very comfortable. Many tv channels (:

              All windows turn to the driveway and to the deck, so opening a window makes the room completely not private. People are walking on these decks....

            • Single
              5.0

              I liked the fact that I was close to the market and ease of parking the reception area was presentable and the people were very curteous

              I felt it was unsafe - people were smoking marigiuana outside, people were clearly living there - doing laundry, cooking, children playing on balcony. This was clearly not a business staying hotel the rooms were substandard the air conditioning unit was loud and working fairly, the bathroom was run down looking but clean. I would never stay at one again

            • Single
              7.4

              The staff were great

              The chairs in the room were very uncomfortabl

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              we liked the attitude of the staff. They were always most obliging andwilling to assist.

            • Single
              9.6

              My stay at Econo Lodge was brief,only 1 night.The staff was very friendly.Location was very nice to close to the Parliament Buildings

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              The hotel was convenient to downtown.

              The hotel needs some maintanance. The outdoor walkways had a rubber lining which was very slippery with the blowing snow.

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              The management was friendly and the room was clean.

              I think they should use real cups cups for their complinentary coffee in the rooms. Starfoam does not do.

            • Couple
              3.8

              To be honest, the only thing I liked was the location, which is close to all amenities.

              The room was not clean properly and there was a lot of noise from the rooms beside and above. There were kids next door and they'd shout, jump, and punch the walls all the time.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Easy access from the highway; Very pleasant Staff (offifce, breakfast room); reasonable price

              Broken & malfunctioning bathtub

            • Group of friends
              5.0

              Location

              The smell of room and smoke from other rooms

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              the accessability to things we wanted to see in Ottawa

            • Single
              5.0

              I liked the fact that it is 15 minutes walk from the university

              There is a lot of noise. The room is old. The breakfast is more than basic and served in styrofoam.

            • Couple
              6.6

              Good situation near the city center.

              In comparison value/price small and older rooms, very thin walls (to the neighbour rooms).
