"Nice dorm apartment"
It should be noted that this is actually the dorms where students reside during the school year. I got to the area looking for a hotel when I realized I needed to look for the student dormitories. The apartment-like setting is nice since it includes a kitchenette, a fridge, two rooms, a bathroom, wired internet, cable tv, etc. Parking is not included […] and must be paid for to the school. Otherwise, your car will be towed. The dorm is close to a bus station, a 24 hour grocery store, a shopping center, and some restaurants. Getting downtown from there is very simple and only takes one bus. Be careful about your return time as certain buses don't get there after a certain time. It's best to get a day pass for the bus if you're using the bus. It's well worth it and can take you all over the place. What's even better is that one day pass works for a companion too during the weekend! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The residence was close enough to downtown Ottawa that it wasn't a long drive, but far enough out that you didn't have to deal with to much traffic and commotion. The room was nice and clean. Well stocked with towels. The beds were comfortable as well. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Back to College"
Typical dorm rooms, roomy enough for a family of 4. Two separate rooms with queen size beds. Two tv's and free internet. For the $60 a night with continental breakfast in Ottawa it was a good deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Rooms were good"
I have booked 2 rooms with 2 beds and rooms were good. They had two rooms and one bed in each room thats what I liked. Carpets had stains other than that everything was fine..Internet was working fine, bathroom was clean too and free breakfast. Initially they gave me a room which was occupied and nothing was going on when I opened the door :). Later […] they gave me other room. Overall hotel was Nice and clean.

This is a college dormitory. Very basic accommodations but very clean. Good for families as there is a refrigerator and microwave in a small kitchenGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for."
Very difficult to find this place. Look for Algonquin College buildings. The address is the same for numerous college buildings in this area. The name of this place is somewhat misleading. Residence and Conference Centre led me to think business traveller. Make no mistake, this is a college dorm room rented out for the summer. Great for the price but […] akin to a stay in a hospital room. Very industrial feeling. Not a room you want to linger in but fine for sleeping and storing your stuff. Close enough to highway for 15 minute drive to downtown Ottawa. Free light breakfast - cereals, toast, bagels, coffee, juice. WiFi did not connect for me but I'm sure it could be sorted out if I bothered to ask for help. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, just as advertised."
The building shares the same address as the rest of the campus apparently so it can be a slight challenge to locate. Asking security for directions resolved that quickly. Room was very spacious and clean. Check-in was very quick and the staff very polite. Both beds were comfortable although one was rather noisy. I also had to toggle the breaker a few […] times when the ac would stop working. For the price, I would definitely stay there again, hopefully the ac would stay on without assistance.

"Very bad Hotel very hard to find it ."
Very bad Hotel . Bad management . No phone connection in and out . No clean up (at least for 2 days I was staying ) .Genuine Expedia guest review
"overall a great place for a family stay"
First of all, the location was very hard to find because it was within a college campus. There was no Wifi connection for guests. I booked for two bed, but it comes with two huge rooms. Bathroom has only shower, no tub. Breakfast was okay, very basic. It was worth money considering how expensive canada is.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and clean"
Very inexpensive, and clean. I needed a place to sleep and this fit the bill quite easily. It is not for those looking for luxury. Still, if you are on a budget this place was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice stay under $80."
Its not a queen bed, so if trying to accommodate 2 people on the bed, would be tight. But then, you have two rooms, i.e., 2 beds available if so. For around $75 I paid, the money wasn't spend wrong. Staff was helpful as well. Overall I am fine and would recommend for anyone who wants a sleep more than comforts of 3+ star hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was good, but keep in mind that this is primarily a dorm for the college. It provided a refrigerator, sink, & microwave and access to a community stove. The continental breakfast was much appreciated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best deal on our trip"
First of all, let me be clear that this is NOT a hotel--it's the residence halls (i.e. "dorms") of Algonquin College, about 15 minutes southwest of downtown. But it's not the college dorm from your youth: not only is it a brand-new building in excellent shape, residence hall designers these days also understand that today's students value their privacy. […] Gone are the bunk beds and toilets-down-the-hall; nowadays, students get private bedrooms and a semi-private bathroom. That's how it's set up here: your reservation is actually for a two-bedroom suite with a kitchenette and bathroom shared between the two bedrooms. Each room (remember, you get two rooms per booking--an excellent value!) has a double bed, a work desk, a small TV, a new IP phone, and wired (not wireless) Internet. The kitchenette has a full-size sink/refrigerator/microwave (no cooktop/oven) and a table. The bathroom is large and clean with a shower stall (not tub) that is reasonably large. Sure, the room is Spartan, but what do you really need other than a bed? (Just to be clear, the bed is made up, and towels/shampoo/soap is provided.) Also, some other reviews mentioned a lack of air conditioning--the room definitely DID have a/c. Also, a free light breakfast is available in the lobby with several choices of cereal plus toast, bagels, coffee, and OJ. Best deal in Canada! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"a good place to stay for everyone"
We are a family of four and stayed at this place for two nights. The hotel was under construction/renovations during our stay. We had two bedrooms with full size bed in each plus a common bathroom and a small kitchen without gas range. The room was clean. The free breakfast was good enough for us - toast, bagels, juice, coffee, and cereals. We enjoyed […] our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great price and what was provided - nice staff"
For the price, it was well worth it. free parking, and laundry services. very friendly student staff at the desk. free breakfast was great. there is no wifi here though expedia claims there is. they do however have highspeed internet ethernet ports and ethernet blue wires in the room for computer and laptop connections. sorry iphones and ipads :(Genuine Expedia guest review
"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 is a college dorm during the school year and we did have to park and walk a ways across the commons to get to the back side of the dorm. If I was needing a place for a week stay this would be it. Great full size fridge and table. Two bedrooms and full bath. Lots of kids down at breakfast but overall was great. Staff was wonderfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Algonquin, no frills but great place"
This is a bit off the beaten path, but only a bit. There is easy access to shopping, parks, and the Queensway to get anywhere you want to go. The rooms are simple and clean. Bring cutlery and dishes if you are planning on making meals in the room-microwavable only, but a full size fridge and freezer.Wonderful staff also. Slow elevator!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a hotel at all"
Do not recommend anyone to stay. it is a student resident but not a hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It is a suite style dorm room that is used for the students. Thus there is left over stains or glues on the walls/floors that could not be removed easily. If you are ok with this the student staff were pleasant and helpful and it was a great place to save money as you could cook and you had separate bedrooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"An embarrassed experience at Algonquin College Res"
My 14-year old son and I were assigned to 2-bed suite after checking-in around 11:00pm. I unlocked the suite door and opened the right-side bedroom door first. To our surprise, a man suddenly sit up in the bed, being too shocked to say anything. We quickly left the suite and went back to the front desk. We got assigned to another suite in about 20 […] minutes. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"College Campus residence"
Not the best but does the job. Run by the college kids and it's really a dorm so don't expect much. small kitchen, poor beds and thin pillows. For me, no A/C, no iron or ironing board and almost an hour to check in. Also, most importantly, the address that Hotels.com lists is NOT for the residence but for the college. You have to go into the campus […] to find it so pull a map of the campus before you arrive. Lots of construction from the airport to the campus. Highlight of the stay was the transformer that blew up putting the residence in darkness until 3am Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"piece and quiet"
thoroughly enjoyed our time and proximity to shopping and availability of the hosts to provide answers to our questions i,e, who/what/where to see and the best times to visit the appropriate areas. The fact that there was a small TV in each of our rooms was an asset if the weather had been unsuitable for touring.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our stay at Algonquin College"
Check-in was prompt and courteous. Front counter staff was friendly and helpful. Concerns about our room were handled in a timely manner. The cleaning staff did an excellent job accommodating our requests. When we asked for extra towels, a staff member brought them promptly. When I apologized for the inconvenience, the staff member's reply was "we are […] here for you". I am impressed with the level of customer service we received. The staff at Algonquin College understand customer service. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Residence first, hotel second"
Any guest has to be prepared that this is a college residence first, and a hotel second. The rooms are spartan and well used. The bathroom cleanliness was my concern primarily. The counters and shower were clean but the walls of the bathroom were very dirty. The furniture condition shows the wear and tear they take during the school year.Genuine Expedia guest review
