I had no idea it was a Student residence until we got there. I was not sure I was going to like it but we all did. We were in Ottawa for a campus tour of University of Ottawa since my daughter was considering going there and so staying at this hotel gave us an insight on how residences are like. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and it was clean and comfortable. […] It was near the University of Ottawa and the highway. They even served a decent breakfast. For the price we paid, it exceeded out expectations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's a dorm room!"
I booked this at the last minute, so didn't pay attention to the detailed description. We were quite surprised to find out we'd booked a college dorm room. Actually, it was quite adequate, and we can't complain. The biggest problem was finding the place. There's no streetside signage, so we passed it by a couple of times before we found it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good basic accommodation"
The accommodation was somewhat spartan but very clean and comfortable. WiFi service was not available in the room but was accessible in the lounge area that existed on each floor. It was somewhat difficult to find the building, as noted by others and the assistance provided by one of the maintenance staff we found upon arrival was not particularly helpful. […] The breakfast was excellent. We would certainly stay there again . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Peace and quiet and convenient"
Quiet, restful, peaceful surroundings. Got a good night's sleep and was able to go to the downtown sights nearby. The lobby staff was very pleasant and helpful with directions and suggestions. The property grounds were very nice. A great find and great deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place, but No WIFI in rooms!"
Breakfast room extremely congested and disorderly. More organization and well controlled people would help a great deal in making the place excellent. Rooms were very spacious, but the shower room to small. In availability of WIFI in room quite a limitationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"No Frill Door Rooms"
Converted dorm rooms ~ no clocks, no hair dryers, no coffee makers, no bath tubs, no TV channel line-up cards, typical Canadian/terrible channel selection, no airport shuttle service, extremely limited parking, poor quality pillows, and they only change bed sheets "every four days". Decent value, though, if you want two bedrooms, a kitchen, a free breakfast, […] and are used to camping. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Three Cs:clean. Comfortable. Convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Two separate bed room and a small living room"
It has two separate bed room and a small living room. It is bigger than other hotel and good for a fast deep sleep. The room setup is poor and not clean enough for me. At most I give it a three stars.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value. Very nice staff. A bit hard to find"
I was extremely surprised at how nice this hotel was, especially for the low price. Honestly, it was a better value than most 4 star hotels I have stayed in. While accommodations aren't 4 star, the room was huge, with two separate bedrooms, kitchenette and a large bathroom. As far as design, the only flaw I would say is the relatively small shower. […] The bathroom was large enough to accommodate a full size bath if it were laid out differently. My only other complaint is the location of the hotel. It sits behind the university, so when you enter the address on your GPS, it takes you to the university, and there isn't adequate signage to let you know where the hotel is.

"Very affordable accommodation"
My family of 7 shared 2 two-bedroom suites at the Residence & Conference Center on our trip from Halifax to Toronto. The price was excellent and the rooms were very adequate although not luxurious. We were happy to have breakfast and wifi included in the price. The only improvement we could have asked for is access to a pool but since the rooms are […] student dorms that was not available. The staff were very friendly and helpful when we needed more towels. We were very pleased with our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A good idea to use the college dorm for hotel/mote"
Two rooms and a sitting area make you feel more convinient and confortableGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good if you are looking for low frills hotel"
I stayed on race weekend and was just looking for a bed, toilet and shower. Fridge and microwave were nice but the whole space just felt a little dirty even though it was probably clean. Definitely somewhere acceptable to sleep but temper your expectations. Service people were nice but didn't really need them much. A/C is luck of the draw - they say […] to turn it off and then back on and lower it in 3 degree increments....like I have time to sit there all day to do that. Wouldn't be my first choice but definitely would consider staying there if price was right and everything else was booked. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice clean hotel for the price"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a comfortable stay with free parking and free breakfast. The room had two rooms, two TVs. Microvave and fridge. Only gripe is that it was difficult to find. Need better signage.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place and a great value."
Excellent place to stay. Basic but clean and has everything I was looking for. The one suggested improvement would be to have wi-fi available in the rooms, not just common areas.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overall good experience"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Good value, and easy via car to get to the various sites.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value with a dorm-room style suite"
The hotel was part of conference facilities for a university and we had a two bedroom suite with a kitchenette that was very comfortable and affordable for a family. The breakfast was also nice. It was about a 15 minute drive from downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Practical, clean, simple"
Clean beds, located close to the Rideau River and Canal, great for long walks.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Very Pleasant Good Service"
The facility is hard to find but overall it was very convenient and comfortable. The desk staff was helpful and polite and the breakfast was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was funny to see all these women coming down for breakfast with their hair wet! Decent hotel for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Convenient two separate rooms with kitchen. Bed was small. Not full bath (just shower). Cheaper than other Ottawa hotels, but it's not that cheap.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel for the money"
Stay was very good except the little problem with the parking. Can improve by providing dryer in the room and may be wifi instead of wired. Break was good too and close proximity to downtown Ottawa.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very nice for family"
We love this hotel very quite and pleasant.the boys loved it too as a glimpse to their future college dormitories :-)Genuine Expedia guest review
Everybody enjoyed. Ottawa is a nice place to visit and have good selection of food.Genuine Expedia guest review
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.

"ok to stay for a night if no other option"
Good location! It is located near downtown and many attractions. However, it only provides basic accommodations and the building entrance is hard to find. There is no cable tv channels nor WiFi offered. But it is a very quiet place.to stay though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice experience. Good for families."
Stayed for 1 night this June. Two private bedrooms in a unit -- each with own bed, TV, desk. Kitchen area has a decent size dining table, Microwave, a Fridge. No plates or silver though -- bring your own. Bathroom shower was a bit smallish but very usable and impecably clean. Overall -- simple and clean. Good customer service too.Genuine Expedia guest review
Only one elevator, repair guy was on strike so long waits to get m at times. Breakfast was ok, somw fruit cereal and yogurt.no coffee machine in room.Genuine Expedia guest review
