Our room, (myself, wife and our adult daughter) we had a two bedroom apartment, which included a kitchenette, fresh towels daily, room cleaned every day, use of a mini gym, a cafeteria, walking distance to Rideau Canal (a most beautiful walk) close to downtown, walking (half hour to three quarter hour) some of the most friendly folks around, every one...

My family and I stayed at the Rideau Residence and we were taken aback by the orderly quarters at this hotel. The front desk staff were very helpful in setting up our reservations, as we didn't have any upon our arrival. Great price if you are budget travellers, the rooms are clean and housekeeping does make up the rooms daily,...

My family stayed here one night in the Henderson residence and found it good for one night. We had two rooms with an adjoining bathroom so it was perfect for our family. There rooms were clean, however, the beds were uncomfortable and had only one thin blanket for our bedding (and the air was on full - brrr!). A bare-bones...

We stayed at the Rideau Residence (290 Rideau St) for only $90 including tax for 4 people at the end of August, booked through booking.com. I'm glad we only paid that much because any more and it wouldn't have been worth it. I am a budget traveler who usually stays at places like Howard Johnson, Comfort Inn etc... so I...

We were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations. This is a hotel that was purchased by the university, and we were not expecting to have our beds made or clean linens every day. The price was CHEAP! and it was clean and well situated, as we walked to ByWard Market every evening for dinner. LCBO is right across the street as...

Perfect location. Within walking distance to everything. Downtown, parliament hill, mall, restaurants, market and pubs. It was clean, quiet and you can't beat the price. Just as good as a regular hotel but for a fraction of the price. The students working there are great. Very friendly and helpful. Would stay here agin in a heartbeat.

Love the location and the cost for a two bedroom unit with small kitchen, but there is some improvement to be made on customer service - we are still paying customers even if it is not really a "hotel". Housekeeping staff really nice. Laundry was a smooth process. Can't beat the location. There was some construction noise, but we were...

During a recent trip to Ottawa for a conference, we stayed at the U residences. Reason for this rather than a hotel, there were two rooms, small but adequate and a mini kitchen. We had a 15 yo along (who by the way "hated everything") hence our choice. This facility is right on campus and very close to everything we...

Accommodations exactly as advertised: commodious, very clean, spacious, plain residence rooms close to all the tourist attractions in downtown Ottawa. Pleasantly surprised that housekeeping was in daily to make beds and provide fresh towels. Very good service for budget accommodations! Clerks at the front desk were very helpful and efficient at check-in and when calling cabs for us. Cleaning staff...
