Clean hotel, a little dated, friendly staff, good AC and enjoyed having a fridge/microwave in my room. The staff were friendly here and helpful. They are close to the air port but you can't here the planes so I was very happy and had a great sleep. There is a few store and places to eat next to the hotel.

We stayed here in August 2015 for 2 nights. We were attending a wedding at Orchardview Wedding & Conference Centre. Our stay was excellent. We stayed in the "Presidential Suite" (whirlpool tub, fridge, micro, coffee maker, sitting area, 2 flat-screen TVs and an electric fireplace!). The cost per night/amenities ratio was very reasonable - the best in the area. The...

As the Hampton Inn was fully booked stayed here as it was next door and close to the airport. Other than the price which was high for a budget hotel, everything else was fine.

I stayed here one night between flight connections. This hotel is close enough to the airport that it is only minutes away by airport shuttle. The "Information Booth" at the YOW airport dialed the hotel using a phone in their booth which is nice if you are a traveller without local cellphone coverage Check in with them at the airport...

Very friendly staff, accommodating to a road weary travelling family. the hot buffet was very welcome, the buffet area was clean and well stocked. Overall for a very short stay within a long roadtrip, a great accommodation ad a reasonable price point.

I have stayed at a lot of Holiday Inns and as a priority club platinum club member usually get some little perk..... Not here!!! The guy on the front desk was not the friendliest I have encountered.

Spent two nights at this hotel and would stay here again. I like the location as it is in a quiet neighborhood close the airport yet an easy drive downtown and the clients that I called on while in Ottawa. I like the HIE chain and tend to use them when available.
