I booked a two star motel through Booking.com for myself and mother. As the date got closer I checked Trip Advisor and noted it got 4 points from most. I wanted to add my "5" points to that. The place is clean, well kept grounds, many rooms and clean and well appointed. I loved the comfort of the king bed...

There were flies and mosquitos in the room. The room smelled like it hasn't been properly cleaned for about a decade. The room was not very clean. I guess you get what you paid for. Very disappointed! There are a couple of better hotels in the area namely Adams airport inn and the holiday inn where both are by the...

Have stayed at this motel several times over the years, usually when attending family gatherings of people from out of town. Large tree covered lawn area excellent for socializing. Located within a few hundred yards of an intersection of major routes in all directions into and out of the city. Room had obviously been recently renovated, and although all the...

Stayed two nights and really liked the place. Office and cleaning staff friendly and helpful plus it was great value. Breakfast basic but all you need. Rooms clean and good shower. AC a bit noisy but once temp low can be turned off . Would not hesitate to go back to

It was a great stay, room was clean and the staff were friendly. I would stay again for sure! And it was a great location, off a busy road but easy to get to! The pressure for the shower was awesome too.

We spent Canada Day in Ottawa and needed a place to sleep before heading for Toronto. So I booked this place through Ottawa tourism website, based on practicality and affordability. It served our needs well. However, avoid arriving there late - just to avoid that nasty man at the reception who will make your check-in so unpleasant and long, you...

This is essentially a motel with a grander name, but the price is right - the room was clean, the wi-fi surprisingly fast and the water hot. The walls are paper-thin though, the pillows are not particularly comfortable, and the electrical outlets are hidden behind the furniture. If price and convenience for the EY Centre or the airport are overriding...

Cost performance is good. But I hope more clean room. I regret that couldn't eat breakfast because amount are not enough. I hope shower nozzle has flexibility because I felt to difficult to take a shower for my daughters.
