Nice Hotel with great location, Comfortable Bed & Good Breakfast

Chimo Hotel was a good find for me as I had some discount with travel site which reduced the rate below $80 for 4 people 1 night. Room is spacious with comfortable bed and everything was pretty good. Breakfast was better than I expected. Requested a crib, which was also ready in the room. However bathroom was old and carpet looked very old and not so clean, if you plan to go there, have some sandals - do not walk on bare feet. Overall liked it.

Average

We stayed for one night in July. I believe the photo's of the rooms are misleading , we booked a standard queen room with a sofa bed, the pictures show the sofa bed in a separate sitting room, that's what I thought we were getting, I even called the hotel to confirm. When we arrived, the room we received had the sofa bed beside the queen. I inquired about the rooms with sofa bed in separate sitting area, I was informed they are $50 extra per night. We asked for a blanket for the sofa bed for our daughter, front desk advised they do not have blankets!! What hotel does not have blankets? On the plus side, shopping mall is across the street. The Byward market is a 10 min drive. The hi-way 417 is under construction which is right by the hotel, there were long delays as we were stuck in traffic when ever we tried to get back to the hotel from the city. It took 20 min to travel 3k. I recommend you stay off the 417.

stayed while husband in hospital

We liked location very handy to 417 restaurants etc.We always had to ask for towels shampoo, they didn't replenish these items especially washcloths. The restaurant left a bit to be desired. The room was clean and bbeds were good.

Easy access to most places

While the hotel is not near downtown, it is very close to the highway. St. Laurent shopping mall is across the street. The place is ok nothing to write home about. It is clean. Breakfast is scrambled eggs, toast, coffee, cereal etc. do not expect a full buffet.

Bait and Switch

This was my 4th week staying at this location. They have been giving me worse and worse rooms each week after starting me out with upgrades and comp breakfast my first 2 weeks. The rooms have been getting worse and worse. This time I was put in a twin bed room with no thermostat to control temperature like previous rooms. Unless you are in the upper floor rooms they seem to become very different. As soon as my prepaid room stays are over I will no longer be staying in this hotel. 2 or 3 more weeks and I am done.

Accomodation for business trip

I work in the Ottawa area which requires me to be there almost monthly. Over the last year I have stayed repeatedly at the Chimo and have enjoyed my stays. The hotel is located conveniently close to Hwy 417, staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable. I have only positive things to say about Chimo and I will continue to use it as my hotel of choice whenever I am in the Ottawa area.

Great place for the money...

You get what you pay for. This place is great for the money. The rooms have a outdated d├ęcor color but they are big and clean. The breakfast is great and included in the cost. With that and the free parking and WiFi, you cant beat the value. Cheers, D.

Perfect for what we were looking for

We needed a place to sleep for two nights while we visited family and this place was perfect as it is right off the highway. It is around plenty places to eat and directly across from St. Laurent Centre. The bed was so comfortable and they have down pillows (which I realized I was allergic to) which was a nice touch. The room was very spacious with a mini fridge. The bathroom could use updating and maybe provide extra soap and kleenex. That was the main thing missing, kleenex. I would stay here again though, no problem.
