"Convenient location in West End"
I have stayed here before. Love the fact that there are two separate bedrooms and a kitchenette. The Continental Breakfast has been discontinued, but Tim Hortons, MacDonald's and other restaurants are only a short walk away. On my previous visits the bedrooms had floor lamps, but neither room had one this time. There were signs up indicating that Algonquin […] College is in the process of replacing all furniture in the rooms. Free parking with a permit available when signing in.

"Not so Good!"
First of all... Had no idea it was a college residence. That was not the problem. The tv did not work in the first room they gave us so they were accommodating by giving us a second room that did have working tv's, however the A/C did not work in the second room! Won't stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to my social event"
very convenient, value for money. I will come back to his hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
When you get over the fact that you are staying in a college dorm and the large number of kids attending sports camp, this was the best deal we have ever had in Ottawa. Staff was well-trained and very helpful. There is easy access to main highways, good local restaurants, 2 bedrooms and kitchen with microwave and frig. And I see on-line that this program […] exists in colleges all over Ontario. Will stay here on any summer trips we take to Ottawa in future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR"
THE BAD: I started off trying to find this place for 10 minutes, the address applies to the entire campus of Algonquin College, so you have to drive around until you see a building that resembles the picture on Expedia. The building you're looking for is behind the retail outlet stores off of Navahoe Drive. Parking is free but it's not close to the […] entrance, so load and unload your suitcases at the entrance. The room had a strong smell because the carpet was very dirty so bring your flip flops/slippers, I would not advise to go barefoot in the room. While I was laying in bed it's all I could smell. The 'suite' has two bedrooms with a foyer (kitchen with fridge/sink/microwave), there is no common sitting area in your 'suite', if you want to watch TV you have to do so in the bedroom. Aside from the carpet, everything was clean, including the towels, nice big washroom but very poor water pressure for a shower, we were on the third floor. Bring decent soap and shampoo for yourself. THE GOOD: VALUE, if you're looking for upscale-this is not the place for you. It's a dormitory so don't expect much. Very comfortable beds, tons of storage, our stay over the three nights was not noisy but I did notice there were a few large sports groups staying in the dorms, none of them rowdy though and they put them on a separate floor. Excellent service received when my son closed his bedroom door and realized it was locked. The girl came right away. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"comfortable but very weak wifi"
wifi and wired internet both are nearly not available. others are ok. .................................. also oko ok ok location is good. but address is not clear.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Strictly hostel... no cups, plates or utensils"
With fridge & microwave.... but no utensils, cups, plates, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great night. Close to everything"
Room/hotel was great. Anything you need is within walking distance. Super rates. The staff is not very knowledgable or helpful but friendly. The only thing I would recommend is more training for the staffGenuine Expedia guest review
The only positive point I have from this hotel is the space, which is large. Further no Wi-Fi, a kitchen without any tools, cup , knives, spoon. A very noisy airco, even if you turn it off. made us move to other bedroom, which was a little quieter. Far from the center, but with buses you are able to travel. No close restaurants or you must like fast […] food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Difficult hotel to find"
For the price that I paid, I don't have any complaints. The only thing to complain about was that it was very difficult to find. The hotel is located on the campus of Algonquin College. The GPS could not find the building since all of the buildings on the campus have the same address. I had to go to the security office to get a map of the campus in […] order to find the hotel building. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"College closed to grocery store and fast food"
My family visit this college residence every year to go to Calpyso Waterpark 30 mins away and Mount Cascades Waterpark 30 mins away. This college residence is great for familyGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a collage dormitory that the collage use as hotel in summer time and they call it suites, which is way far from that. But if you only want it for sleeping than this is enough to do the job.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Far from downtown & absolutely dirty rooms."
This is a student resident very poorly managed and poorly cleaned. We had bunch of hair from former guests on the floor and some on blankets. Price is moderate but for a little more one can get a three or four star hotel with major names. I think they should care more about their guests but they are care free students managing this place. Two thumbs […] down. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect choice when traveling on a budget"
Stayed one night with my two little cousins. Since the rooms are all suites, they had their own little room. Not the most beautiful rooms but clean and comfortable. All we needed for a decent price. If you're not looking for a fancy hotel and just for a clean unexpensive place to stay (especially with children), it's a great choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to everything"
I brought my 8 and 11 year old boys to Ottawa for a family vacation. We enjoyed our stay at ottawa west. The staff was helpful and friendly and th facility was clean and had everything we needed. It's walking distance from tim Hortons, lcbo and a big loblaws with clothes and prepared foods. You can get to anywhere in ottawa in 15 minutes from here. […] Definitely recommend and we will be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Surprisingly great experience"
I didn't expect to get 2 bedrooms for $85/night. Great deal. It was about 10 to 12 minutes from Downtown (driving distance) but free parking, wired internet, CLEAN BEDS, a full fridge wth freezer and the security at location made it a great deal. However, the beds are only twins and not Queens. The pillows were OK but we brought our own. I'd definately […] come back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Came in very handy as we had Hospital and Doctors appointments and we were within minutes of the OC Public Transit.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good bang for your buck"
Fairly clean, 15 min bus right to down town. Found underwear or pair of shorts, whichever it was I was not going to check haha. They were under my bed, wifi never works. Other than that, staff was friendly and room was perfect temp With your own central air! Sheets were clean and overall had a great time!Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice hotel, plenty of biking path"
we have a great time biking along the Ottawa river going to the parliament and rideau canalGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great bargain during the summer months"
While the students are away, Algonquin gives a great price..... 2 bedrooms and a shared bath, kitchen. Clean, excellent location.....Genuine Expedia guest review
It was good for the money...friendly staff, clean room..close 2 local transportation. Very close 2 restaurants and convenience store.. overall satisfactory experience. A few kms away from downtown. Good and safe localityGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was clean,lots of room, had a full fridge and microwave. Eating area good size.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good deal for the price"
Stayed here for one night while quickly visiting Ottawa. Wanted something cheaper. Dorm style rooms with small kitchen. Nothing fancy, but not much to complain about. Helpful staff. A short walk from the bus stop. Taking a taxi here from downtown will cost about 25$ though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, cheap hotel close to the Rideau Raceway"
It was difficult to find the location, as the address provided did not lead to the correct location, but we eventually found it. The staff were great and allowed us to check into our room a few hours early. However, our towels were not changed in between the first night and the second night, so we had to call for a new set, which took a long time to […] arrive. There was also no garbage can in the bathroom, or any plates, utensils, etc. in the kitchenette. Overall though, the venue was good value for the price paid. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Girls on service desk were nice. Rooms was pretty good. But it looks like students during the study are smoking so I felt the smell. Was very difficult to find, we're driving back and forth few times, the building is off the street. Nothing to complain for place like campus. Comfortable with dogGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Difficult to know what to expect, residence"
I didn't mind paying the expedia price, but I couldn't get a second night, paid full price and shouldn't have. The location, kitchen and bathroom were clean and handy especially when attending a prov. swim meet with a 12 year old. Big fridge was great, but a stove (used the one down the a hall), some dishes/pots (brought our own) would have been handy. […] Even though we knew it was a college residence, the rooms were worn, beds soft, and the garbage outside around the building built up unpleasantly as the weekend went on. Smoking outside the front doors wasn't comfortable either. Overall our stay was OK, it served our purpose. Once the initial shock wore off, the A/C worked well, the bedroom doors were sound proof (had to tell the people across the hall to lower their voices at 1am) and the location to the pool was perfect! It was handy have 2 bedrooms as my mother joined us too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"most difficult place to find"
It is OK for the priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
There is good value for dollar if all you are looking for is basic accommodation. With that said, don't expect much more than that. The good....close to shopping and the price was cheap. The bad....there isn't much around other than the shopping centre across the street. Also wifi was not reliable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A noisy hotel"
The staffs are nice, but the environment is very noisy. The room cleaning was not very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Student residence, affordable, good for short stay"
Stayed one night, has two separate rooms with double beds. The rooms are well maintained. Check the address, as it is inside the campus and the entrance is from side road off Woodroffe Ave.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nothing too special"
My experience could have been better. Downtown is too far. Had to take 2 buses. The building itself is a bit old. Otherwise, the staff was nice and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"excellent price performance"
It is a dorm for Algonquin College students, not a five star hotel. However, for very reasonable price you got a unit with two bed rooms, enough working area to prepare simple meal for kids, it is ideal for small family to attend events in this area e.g. it is near Napean Sportsplex.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great but if it slightly easier access to internet.Strahoten hotel I would recommend it to friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel. but address not working in GPS"
good for this price. the address to get there is little tough.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Satisfied with my stay"
Location is easily accessible to transit for those of use who don't mind a bit of a walk. But the old-looking state of the facilities are in no way a representation of the fairly satisfactory comfort you derive, especially when viewed in relation to how much you spend on it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Really hard to find"
It was not at all clear from the listing that this "hotel" was a college dormitory with no signage or directions given to find it on the college campus. I thought I had written the address incorrectly as I came to the college campus and there found no signs directing me to the "hotel". Once I found it, it was comfortable and, although the parking was […] free, it was rather far from the rooms. Internet was spotty but worked well once I was connected. This listing needs much more detail including that the rooms are in the college "residence hall". Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good place for the price."
For a place to crash for the night with the kids it was perfect.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An Ottawa stay.."
Staff was friendly but room was just a clean dorm room with good beds. 4 bus loads of school kids arrived after we checked in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to amenities"
I got to the hotel very late but checking in was very easy. The front staff were very accomodating.Genuine Expedia guest review
I needed a place to stay in Ottawa for the night and I have no complaints about this hotel. I didn't notice in the description that the room would have a fridge and sink (in its own kitchen area), but my room did. I saw in other reviews that there was no Wifi, but Wifi is now offered. The hotel was a little tricky to find because it is on the Algonquin […] Campus. You may want to prepare yourself by printing out a map of the campus. I had to stop in one of the other buildings and find a map. There is a variety store in the lobby, as well as an ATM. The hotel is very close to a Tim Hortons and a shopping plaza.

"economic and clean lodging in Ottawa"
It is clean. I hope they remind people on the website to bring our own hair dryer.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location and staff. Tired soft mattresses. Could not connect to wifi so we went to nearby restaurant to pick up emails and cappucinos.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room had dirty sheets on the bed which should have been caught by staff. HVAC was very noisy to the point where I did not get a good nights sleep. Would not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great when you are doing a late night presentation"
clean rooms, nice beds, decent prices-good "student" type accomodationGenuine Expedia guest review
I was told that rooms included internet. Ours did not work. Staff were "too busy" to help us. At 10:30 pm we were told to go to McDonald's or Tim Horton's. I work online. By the next morning there was still no interest in helping us. I had to leave - and forfeit a night's accommodation - because I had to get internet access.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An OK place to stay"
We stayed here because a lot of other hotels were booked due to graduations at Carlton Univ. etc. The room is more or less just a dorm room on the Algonquin campus.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean room, courteous staff, lots of parking and for a good price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for your money."
Good, clean rooms. Nice to have a kitchen. Staff was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
