Cost performance is good. But I hope more clean room. I regret that couldn't eat breakfast because amount are not enough. I hope shower nozzle has flexibility because I felt to difficult to take a shower for my daughters.

Got this room for my boyfriend and I who needed some alone time away from roommates. The room was very nice, bed was comfy and everything seemed pretty clean! Would definitely return. Location is very good as well for travelers.

This is a great small Inn close to everything we needed. The rooms are cozy with comfortable beds and furnishings. There are coffee makers and fridges to make the stay easy. The prices are very good and lobby staff helpful and friendly. When visiting Ottawa we will book there again.

Room was spacious and comfortable.somewhat outdated but clean. Very affordable which is what drew me in. I skipped the breakfast for a tim hortons run but breakfast was included in the price. This is a great place if you're looking for someplace to lay your head and you aren't worried about fancy.

Stayed for one night. Oldish motor inn style. Room smelled off. Beds were ok. Fridge was unplugged for some reason. Managed to get a muffin in the morning. Clerk wasn't the happiest when we checked out. Was charged extra $10 for third person - would have been nice to know beforehand.

This place was clean and the pillow top bed was very comfortable. Like suite style that included fridge and coffee. The desk staff was helpful--helped us find food at the end of a very long, late day. The location was easy to find, quiet, quaint. Would stay again.
