"Great Location, decent place"

I recently stayed at the Days Inn Downtown Ottawa with three of my girlfriends for we weekend away, and the suited our needs perfectly (Feb. 1 - 3). It is literally right downtown, we did not need to drive anywhere as everything was within walking distance. We had booked a Two-Queen room and even though the beds were described as Queen, they were certainly NOT (they were obviously Double beds). However, this was the only problem we had with our room the entire weekend. There was an issue with noise (drunken hooligans in the parking lot at 3am) and an unexplained fire alarm Saturday evening, but both are things that could not be controlled by the hotel staff. Although this hotel is far from luxurious, everything was acceptably clean and well-maintained. Also, the parking rates are more than reasonable, as I am accustomed to paying almost triple what I was charged at the Days Inn. If you are looking for a great location in Downtown Ottawa, I would recommend this hotel.
"Just as expected"

Overall, not a bad stay. Pretty much what I expected (it is a college dorm after all), which was perfect for my team who were playing a tournament in Ottawa. Having the 2 separate rooms was pretty nice, plus a full size fridge is a nice bonus as well. One of the showers wasn't working so they gave us another room to use in addition to the rooms we already had. Free breakfast was adequate (cereal, bagels, toast, coffee, OJ).

This a very budget oriented hotel in every aspect except the price. It was the most expensive accommodation in our visit to Canada. The host are extremely pleasant people, not only hospitable but like a family, helpful and a great source of support. The shared bathroom, the soft mattress, and a casual setting, reminds me more of a youth hostel than a spa. But I had a great time.
