          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

          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).
