The hotel is a good value. It sits on a university campus. Staff were helpful and pleasant. Continental breakfast was included. Room was clean, had 2 bedrooms and a kitchenette in the middle.

The location was very convenient and very safe. Price was very reasonable, and the rooms were very spacious, probably because they are dorm rooms. I would stay here again.

"A Hidden Gem"
Spent 4 nites at Residence. It was the highlight of the trip. Had a 2 bedroom suite with kitchen, full-sized fridge, stainless steel sink, table with 2 chairs.microwave (no dishes or utensils provided). Each bedroom had double bed with decent linen. Bath had showerstall only, no tub. Plain , white decor, no wall adornment. Kitchen amd bath had vinyl floors, bedrooms carpet that was clean by 3 star motel standards. There was ample HOT water. And the place was CLEAN! Elevators were clean and modern. Halls were tomb-like quiet. There was ample FREE parking in a quiet campus atmosphere (in contrast to the $20-30 dollars per day at downtown hotels). Young college-age staff was charmingly friendly and helpful. The breakfast room seated 50. Offerings consisted of oatmeal, dry cereals, milk, bagels, toast, yogurt, apples, oranges, juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate (sorry no waffles) and was kept stocked. Room was quiet early, but busy about 9:00. There was a lounge on my floor that offered lounge furniture , a big screen tv, and a kitchen with range/oven (no utensils) . One floor had a small fitness room that I didn't discover until I was leaving. This hidden gem is a short 2 mile drive from the heart of downtown, and a short walk from the picturesque Rideau Canal which offers paved bike path to downtown. AND all this for 1/2 the price of a downtown hotel. PLEASE DON'T STAY HERE...I WANT TO BE ASSURED OF A ROOM WHEN I RETURN!!

"Worth every penny."
I was quite surprised with what i got. I was expecting a porly run facility being that it was a school dorm, but it was a well oiled machine, that was sqeaky clean from top to bottom. Great location a short bus ride from downtown, that came with free parking and breakfast.Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. I would definitely stay here again if i am lucky to visit while school's out.

"Cheap, comfortable, difficult location"
My son and I liked having separate rooms and the facility was spartan but clean and comfortable. However, the location is only suitable for people with cars, because there is no public transportation other than taxis, which cost about 30 dollars per ride to get to Parliament Hill or Byward Market. The low cost of the hotel is offset by these taxi charges. There are almost no restaurants in walking distance and none in the hotel except for the standard budget breakfast (fresh coffee, cereal, stale bread products). Also, wifi internet service is available only on the 1st and 4th floors and the TVs in the room are not HD. If you have a family and a car and don't mind checking e-mail in the lobby then this hotel would be a good choice.

"AMAZING"
It is like a dormitory for students, but it is amazing, so clean, it's like a suite with two rooms (with doors) and one common room where you can eat, and a bathroom. Really, really good! There is no wifi in the room, but they will give you an internet cable. There is not food in the lobby, but a short walk and you'll find places to eat, I was even to get a pizza at 11 pm. There is a super market close by. It is close to the downtown area, 8 min by car, but it is also walkable.

Pros: This hotel is a very good stay. Each room has two separate bedrooms, and all amenities. Very clean. Nice staff. Decent breakfast. Very close to the bus station, downtown Ottawa and Parliament Hill. Nice view from the window (at least from my room). Cons: No wireless internet in your room which is very inconvenient. I was only travelling with a Wi-Fi ipad and needed to stay connected for work. Had to go down to lobby every time. The hotel is hard to find, spent 20 minutes walking in circles around St. Paul's building only to find that I had to access it from a certain entrance. Need better signs to tell you where to go.

"Roomy, inexpensive lodging"
We really enjoyed our stay. It's a two bedroom dorm room space - two rooms with a queen bed, TV, and dresser in each, and a small kitchen area in the middle. It would be great for a family traveling. We walked into the downtown every day, and there's also bus service. It's not luxury, but it was clean, convenient, and spacious! Great value for the price.

"Good value but a tiny shower"
I read reviews about a detour from the road's construction on Main St before I went there. Therefore I found the main entrance in less than a minute from Hazel St. You can see a big sign of Residence at the entrance. I agreed the place is not a real hotel. It is a dormitory converted first four floors to be a hotel. The main building got two views; a park view on my side and a parking lot view from the other side. I made a special request on my booking that I want a park-viewed room on the higher floor. But the male staff didn't bother to read it and gave me a parking-viewed room on a second floor. I asked him to fix it and got one on the fourth floor. The view was impressive. The apartment has two separate small bed rooms. A kitchen is between them. The place is clean and spacious. But I don't think the small standing shower will fit big people. I could not move or bend in the shower. Also, I had to fight with others to get a parking spot. There are about ten spots at the front. If you come back after 7:00pm, the parking spots are full. So, you have to park a 100 m away from the building. The others were good. Really good value, I recommended.

"Quiet & Clean"
The hotel is actually a residence at the university. Difficult to find - better signage required as the entrance to the building is not on Main St. Towels and pillows require an upgrade (or bring your own). Full size fridge and microwave. No coffee maker or any other kitchen ware. Very quiet. Separate bedrooms was a bonus!

I had breaks during the day and it was quiet and close to everything. The only problem was the construction and finding it at the beginning. It's kind of hidden. I had to park in the street and walk around for awhile until I found it. It's says it's on Main Street, but it's quite far OFF Main Street.

"Did not meet expectations/Bad location signage"
For the price, it was not the value that was expected. This is not a hotel; it is a student residence. For the purpose of my trip, it would have been better to pay slightly more to get closer proximity to downtown, a comfortable bed, easier parking(while it was free, it was not close and I checked late in the evening, required walking in an uncertain area). I was swayed by the ratings of this place which, for my reality, did not at all make sense. They have terrible signage for where they are located; had to circle the area 3 times before being able to find. You really need a car to get there. Once they have your money, there is little negotiation. I thought it was going to be a lot better based on the prior ratings. But with the right expectations and perhaps trip purpose, it might be just perfect for you.
