If you are looking for the Ritz this place isn't for you. But for a nice clean place to sleep at a decent price, this place was fine. Not far from downtown and the old town has some really nice places to visit and dine.

Ok, FIRST off, this isn't the ritz, but IF you're in the Starved Rock area and just want a decent, clean, reasonable sleeping room, then THIS is for you. The owners have worked on many "updates" to the place and it's quiet, and the beds are very comfortable. Also, without the "Starved Rock" park price. A note: If your wifi goes out, call the woman at the desk so she can re-set the line.

A nice place to stay off the interstate I80. clean and comfortable room. Great selection of resturants around motel. Friendly staff. We had no problems with our stay and would stay here again if in the area.

This place is just down right a dump. Don't do it. The seediness of the outside is the same / even worse - on the inside. Tried it because all the motels in this area (Ottawa) are sooo expensive (even the cheap brands) and at a little over 60 bucks here - I just left after a few minutes without even bothering asking for a refund - because I am sure it is one of "those" places that would fight you tooth and nail about a refund. Don't waste your time health or money here.

We were here for a body building competition.The people here were very pleasant and helpful. Just off I 80. Was very pleased that the rooms was very clean, nice staff. Free internet fridge and microwave in room. Would definitely come back if need be.

The room was spacious and clean...that's all I need to sleep. I would rate my stay higher, except it lacks any outlet in the bathroom and I fell out of the bathtub as I showered. I turned around and slipped (didn't seem to be any stripes in the tub) fell backwards out of the tub onto a slippery floor, hitting my lower left side of back. Seemed to be ok, but mentioned it to management.

So old and dirty! Stay far away from here! Lots of strange things go on at this place because of the local low life's that hang out here. Run now.....just trash all over the place! And I'm talking the people that stay there not garbage. Several other places to stay in Ottawa pick one of those

This motel is very unkept and falling apart, doors bad, bathroom knobs bad, young girls were in one room and a large white truck came multiple times and picked up girls and returned them one by one... Police showed up a little after 11pm and still not sure what happened. Did not sleep needless to say...

I've had to take out of town guests there to stay...overall place was clean and WiFi was sufficient enough for them. Even had a friend staying there for a month and a 1/2 and they were good people to make sure he was looked after and it didn't kill me $ wise. I would recommend them!!!!!! Also beats the prices of the "Chain" hotels in the area.

It's an older building and definitely not fancy. But it was clean, quiet and well maintained. WiFi was fine and the room didn't reek of smoke like many budget places. As good as the major economy chains and far less expensive.
