    One night Ottawa, not very nice area

    As an Econoldge we did not have high expectations, and the hotel was quite satisfactory. Unfortunately, the area of Ottawa that the hotel is in is a little run-down and there were quite a number of possibly homeless people who appeared to be reliant on drink in the area. By walking about a mile to downtown that aspect improved considerably

  • 4.0.Fair

    The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, but the overall experience was quite poor. We could not turn the heat off, which meant it was over 90 degrees F in our room. The complimentary breakfast was tiny and low quality. They only clean the room and change the towels and sheets every third day, which makes it rather unpleasant. Also, the shower didn't work correctly and sprayed all over. Finally, two of the lamps in the room did not work, making the room very dark.

    Needs a DEEP Clean!

    Definitely needs a deep clean. 4 cockroaches all over the bathroom just scattered after I put the light on. 2 of them were stuck in the tub 1 hiding in the towel. Front got me a new room right away. No issues in the other room other then the construction next door. Management apologized first ting once they came in. They weren't able to do anything with my current booking because I got it through Hotels.com.

    Not worth it.

    Not clean very clean. Moved the mattress a few inches to locate my phone. There was some nasty debris on the mattress. Also there was a couple staying 2 doors away from my room. They were shouting at eachother and arguing for a good 10 to 15 minutes but the staff didn't do anything about it. I was there with my kids and was worried.

    Not an ideal place to stay if you need a good rest

    The hotel was in decent condition you could tell it was very old though. We were awoken at 5 in the morning from construction very loud next door the room was shaking. We were looking forward to having sleep the next night so we went to bed earlier in hopes that we would get enough rest before the construction started but this time we had two people yelling at each other screaming and throwing things all night. I tried to call the front desk but the room phone didn't work. I proceeded to call from my cell phone and we continue to hear screaming and yelling it started at midnight and they didn't stop fighting until 7 a.m. we were there for my son surgery we needed sleep it was a horrible stay
