I had to problemas at all. Staff was very polite and present. They did offer me a free breakfast, which was milk, coffee, cereal and muffins. Not bad. Room was clean. Sleep quality good also, very quiet. The drive from there to Downtown Ottawa is quite nice... so being far is not a problem if you have a car. Wi-fi...

I had found this location on line and was more than pleasantly surprised at the lovely grounds in a most convenient location. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was immaculate and the beds here are the best I have ever slept in at a motel. Pillow-top Beauty-rests I believe. The only glitch was that we were travelling...

This may be a great place to stay but I will never know.. I have a medium sized dog who is about 22 pounds... I was told (by the interm manager) that dogs must be under 20 pounds... no exceptions...

Very basic room but clean - especially the bathroom. Bathroom was also very spacious. Air conditioning very noisy but it did it's job. One lamp was burnt out and the fridge in the room didn't work. Free continental breakfast available until 1100 which was nice as we like to sleep in sometimes. Good for the price we thought.

It's a motel. Ipso facto - need a car. Lots of choice for restaurants nearby. Costco is handy and so is fuel for the rental car. The room is modern and up to date, spotlessly clean and the heating/ cooling unit very effective. Staff are friendly and helpful and they provide a fair breakfast. Price is reasonable for sure. Will...

Small motel and well placed for driving and access to Ottawa Airport. It is well treed and quiet - a good place for overnight and longer. Don't be taken by the "breakfast included": That consists of a muffin wrapped in plastic wrap and a weka coffe, all of which you pick up at the office and take to your room....

I went in ottawa this weekend for an event and rented two nights at rideau heights Inn. the location was not too far from downtown, staff was nice and the room was really clean and all.

This is my second stay at Rideau Heights and this time I was a little disappointed. Although the room is designated at non-smoking, the smell of cigarette smoke was very heavy. At first the ac/heater did not work, but management fixed it immediately. The room itself is comfortable and quiet, but showing signs of ageing.

As other reviewers said this property is conveniently located if you are driving. It's clean, spacious, well equipped with the necessities. Upgraded bath, reasonably modern furniture, great tv and friendly staff. Can't beat the price of $83 per night!
