"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
Had a good stay. The only downfall is the parking, it's not close.Genuine Expedia guest review
college dorm style, stayed 1 night, quiet, beds alitte on the hard and uncomfortable . close to resturants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This "hotel" is impossible to find. I entered the address into my GPS and it guided me to an open lot next to some other buildings. I called the number listed on Expedia 4TIMES. No one answered the phone. I left two voicemail messages and did not receive a reply. I began to think that this "notel" was a scam to get my credit card number. But Expedia […] and my bank made sure that this didn't happen. We eventually went to a lovely Hampton Inn next to a Courtyard by Marriott. The bistro in the Marriott had one of the best bacon cheeseburgers I ever ate. We found Ottawa to be a fabulous city-great food and lovely people. But don't bother with this "hotel."

"Affordable 2-Night Stay"
We were happy for the 2 bedroom suite that was provided with common kitchen area. This suite provided more space for us than a typical motel room. There were some cosmetic needs in the suite, and some additional cleaning prior to guest arrival would have been better (i.e. carpet stains that were still sticky). Due to the little sign in the bathroom […] about water conservation and showing your preference to room service staff, we anticipated that housekeeping staff would be by (as is typical for a hotel/motel), however we never had anyone visit our room to do any service, change towels, remove trash, etc. As we were there only 2 nights, which included one full day in between, that wasn't a problem for us. Yet, knowing the protocol there would have been good. We would consider staying again, as the affordable rate was appreciated and the space provided, with the kitchenette-style area, was helpful.

"Not a hotel"
If you are expecting a hotel, you will be disappointed. This is a College Dorm that is rented out. The bed mattresses were new and comfortable. Some of the walls were showing their wear. Yes you have a microwave and fridge, but no plates, cutlery, etc. Some noise in the "dorm" halls on and off in the night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing nights sleep"
Booked a larger room had a fridge and a microwave, Wonderful staff. As it is a college residence, do not expect 5 star conditions (slight paint chips, scratched tables). Wonderful rooms, very quiet, close to 417 (so easy access). Overall amazing stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Basic necessities taken care of."
This is a college residence and as such provides adequate accommodation at a very reasonable price in a good location. It was good to have a kitchen available to us but it would have been helpful to know that there was nothing in it except the fridge and microwave. Bring your own dishes, cutlery, kettle etc. The facility was quiet, clean and air conditioned. […] The parking was included once the pass was obtained but the parking official was right on top of those who were unsure of the arrangements and was overly aggressive. We would stay here on a subsequent visit. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was nice. There was only a small microwave and fridge - no stove, no dishes, no kettle, no coffee maker, no utensils. The cleaning crew left the kitchen floor dirty and it stayed that way for one week. The bathroom was not cleaned on a regular basis. Towels were taken by maintenance staff and not replaced. Otherwise the staff was friendly, […] courteous. The facilities are central and acceptable. Renters need to be advised that they need to bring all kitchen utensils and to expect only a small microwave to use only. Rating: 2 stars Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, Center location, one negative"
Good clean reasonable rooms at a good price from expedia only one negative they had no coffee & no toothpaste. If u are planning to stay there take ur ownGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for what I needed"
As I had a meeting at Algonquin College, this was very convenient. It is a student residence but that was fine for me, there was no loud partying. Rooms were clean, recently renovated. The kitchen would have been handy if I was in town for longer. The priority bus route runs by the campus so getting into downtown is easy and getting to the airport required […] one transfer. Plus you can't beat the price! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I had read the comments from people who have stayed here previously. They were not kidding when they said they had a hard time finding it. When I called to get directions, all they could tell me was that I was here but I still could not find my way. Expedia should offer detailed directions and the name should match what is on the building. I did not […] have high expectations based on the price of this hotel but I had no choice as every other room in the area was booked. The pictures did not give an accurate indication of the room size. I felt like I was sleeping in a closet. I did not find that the accommodations were to the standard I would expect from Expedia. This was rated 3.5 stars but I feel this rating is very generous. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap Basic Accomodation"
The complex is a university dorm so it is very utilitarian. If you are looking for a reasonable place to lay your head - and that's it...this will fit the bill. Close (next door) to a large mall so lots of amenities close by, good little grocery store/deli in the complex with good hours. Internet is wired so either bring a portable router (I travel […] with an Apple Airport Express for these purposes) or make sure you have ethernet port or adapter.
