Great location and comfortable rooms

We were in Ottawa for two days and spent most of our time downtown. The hotel is very central and right on a bus route. Complimentary breakfast was great and all requests by maintenance/housekeeping were taken care of straight away.

Good value for money

Everything was as it should be in an inexpensive motel. Friendly reception, reasonably clean room, window air-conditioner, wireless internet, tv, fridge, iron, fan, breakfast (pretty simple though). The motel is close to the parliament hill (about 10-15 min walk). Would recommend and would stay again.

"Very much so so"

The room was so so. What I did not like was that the floor was not dry enough since I wanted to take shoes and socks off. Bed making was good. Rubber mat in the tub was not clean. Air conditioning was noisy. Price was cheap just to fit to the equipment condition.

Overnighter Only

15-20 min walk to the main sights on Wellington & Rideau Streets; less by bus. Bus stop for 7, 12, 14 & 18 is 1 min from the hotel. Better breakfasts with fruit would have been great instead of cereals that are probably cheap or bland in taste. Have had better especially in the US part of our trip.
