If you get a deal online, you will be paying only 100 CAD per night for a HUGE studio. Mine had a big kitchen with oven, fridge, utensils, etc, a mini living room with a big couch, a computer and printer, big TV. The room was very clean and had nice toiletries. The breakfast didn't have a large selection of...

Location and comfort rolled into one, although it could be said the accomodations are very basic you can't beat the value for money here. Clean apartments and friendly staff, parking for a small fee in a secure carpark. Free wifi and breakfast included, not to mention the free water and take away "goodie" bags" available in the breakfast room. I...

Perfectly located hotel - all main sites in walking distance. Very big apartments with small kitchen with fridge, toaster and cooking stove; computer with printer and small almost separate place for having meal or simply talks with a glace of beer or wine. Very good value and staff.

We stayed at the Business Inn in Ottawa for a day in June. The room was spacious, there was a full kitchen (including plates and cups, oven, microwave, full sized fridge), huge dining table, bedroom and pull out bed (both very comfortable beds). Also impressive-- the room had a steamer, air conditioner, air purifier... basically everything you could ever need,...

I stayed here for one night while in Ottawa in May. It was a pleasant experience. The rooms are large and kept clean. The Business Inn is good value for money. I would stay here again if I'm ever in Ottawa.

I was asked to make a reservation for a colleague in Ottawa for one of the busiest dates of the year in Ottawa and my first thought was the Business Inn. I have stayed there before several times and I have always had a phenomenal stay. The rooms are large, impeccably clean, and the location is ideal-- walking distance to...

There are many hotels in this area of Ottawa and we are happy that we chose The Business Inn. The room was large, featured a kitchenette (which we didn't need) and bed was nice and comfortable. The pillows were too soft though and we both had sore necks the next day! BUT, we had a great nights sleep. The breakfast...
