Very clean and well maintained, prices very reasonable and friendly staff. No restaurant but many near buy. Bed was very comfortable. You can park your car in front of your room which is handy. It is close to the airport.

Spent one night at this Inn and LOVED it. The beds are extremely comfortable, the linens are very soft. Not like typical big hotels, starchy and making your skin so dry it hurts. I thought the rooms were large and very clean, good stable wifi is included. On a beautiful summer night with the cool breeze and the stars this...

We recently moved back to Ottawa, and for peace of mind my wife booked into the motel for three days around our move. Once again it was like home in so many ways. The only slightly negative thing was that the towels are too hard! Perhaps some fabric softener??? LOL

Continental breakfast is very lacking; room was clean but smelt like stale smoke and mould; staff is friendly and nice but for more than $100 a night, I would have expected more. Wifi was free; no elevator to second story rooms - access to rooms is outside.

Maid service is excellent. Breakfast is not all that but overall it's great. It's in a good location, not in the core but yet close to stores and restaurants. no charge for parking which is great. The staff is very friendly. The hotel is located in a very nice and calm and area, if you wanna rest, it's perfect.

The rooms were clean, and the bed very comfortable. The hotel is in a nice setting with a park-like as a central courtyard. The WiFi service was excellent. It is also located not far from amenities in Nepean and only a short drive from Ottawa. The breakfast though was quite minimal - just coffee, cereal, muffins.

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... I googled Pet-friendly hotels in Ottawa... and they can up.. but not really pet friendly... too bad.. the reviews seem...

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.
