    You get what you paid, It is clean and full of parking places (free)

    Great location, cheap price. Staff were mostly quite friendly. Wi-fi access was solid.

    Can't really recommend it; it's unbelievably run-down. When I got to my room, I discovered the chain/bolt-lock had been ripped off the door and was hanging uselessly by one screw. Two of the lamps had been ripped apart and had not even been taped together but just left in that state. Room cleaning was random: some mornings they would make the bed but leave everything else untouched; other mornings they'd replace the instant coffee but leave the bed untouched; etc. I think by the end of my several days there they'd done everything at least once, just never on the same day. The bath wasn't working and when I went to the front desk to inquire and ask for assistance, I was given directions to the nearest hardware shop for me to fix the problem myself (I kid you not). I've stayed in budget locations in many countries, so I took all this with a bit of a sense of humour, but really there's no need, even for the price. I've stayed in cheaper places in equivalent-sized Euro-American cities that have had far superior quality. This is either a poor reflection on this hotel, or on Ottawa in general. Anyway, if all you care about is cheap price and good location (and the staff were quite nice, if not particularly effective), this will meet your needs, although beware that it's probably the most run-down dive I've encountered in any large Canadian city.

    Excellent location. Close to all attractions and very convenient if walking. Free parking was also great esp in a city. Cheap price worth it.

    Outside & inside needs upgrading very old/budget looking. Loud construction when we were there very loud & early!

  • 9.2

    Extra large room for 2 (to host 4). Walking distance to the city center. Make yourself waffles for breakfast. Helpful staff.

    Breakfast was rather limited.

  • 7.4

    OK for the price. Place was really dated and was a yurn off at first however, very clean.

    Old

  • 10.0

    We visited there for 1 night and we were quite very satisfied with the overall hotel. Front Desk upgraded our room as we needed microwave specifically. Staff was very nice and breakfast was very good. Parking and Breakfast was included in the price. Very close to the byward market and the main visiting attractions of Ottawa.

  • 2.8

    Like the location. That's it.

    Let's start with the house keeping. I usually leave my room by 9:00 a.m. When I came to take a nap at 15:00 the room was not made. When I pointed out this to the house keeper, she just laughed played ignorance. The front desk were no help either.

  • 9.6

    The room was very clean..It was nice to have free wifi and free parking.and free breakfast...Only a 10 min walk to Parliament which was nice...The bed was very comfy but the pillows could have been bigger.... I would definitely stay here again when I visit Ottawa.

    Pillows could have been bigger.

  • 5.8

    Location and free parking and friendly staff.

    The breakfast plain Horrible and would rather starve

  • 7.8

    Free parking and a few blocks away from Parliament in a commercial street (Ottawa is just that - sorry, folks). Staff is very nice and polite. Our apartment (238) was very big.

    The second floor don't have elevator to access with luggage or for disabled people. AC fan on the room (238) was too loud at night and maybe needing maintenence - we couldn't turn it off depite the summer because windows are turned into a corridor. Breakfast ia a bit poor, but we stayed for one night, so it's in general, as good as you can get.

  • 9.2

    Really enjoy stay there.

    The wifi is not so good sometimes

  • 7.0

    Free parking (even for the whole check-out day) and close to the city - walking distance.

    Very bad Wi-Fi (still disconnecting). Little renovation of the motel would be nice.

  • 8.8

    The staff were exceptionally friendly and kind!

  • 9.4

    Nice place to stay in the centre of Ottawa. Good price, good location. Free parking.

  • 8.8

    friendly staff, and location, walking distance
