This place was clean and the pillow top bed was very comfortable. Like suite style that included fridge and coffee. The desk staff was helpful--helped us find food at the end of a very long, late day. The location was easy to find, quiet, quaint. Would stay again.

We were there overnight stay after settling our son atCarleton. Roger at the desk was very accommodating. The beds were very comfortable. Rooms are clean. And fridge in the room was great. The property is so quiet and I loved the chairs outside of our room. Just to sit outside and relax. Can't believe how quiet it is on a...

We stayed at this Inn for 4 nights as other hotels we normally stay at were sold out. When we checked in we were told right away that we we paying $20 more per night because we didn't book directly with them and we could have used that $80 to go out for a nice supper. The room was clean...

Just a one night getaway to meet up with a friend. I chose this hotel based on other reviews and it was a good value. I liked the idea that this is an independent property and not part of a big chain. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room. This place is a little out of the way and perhaps that's...

Very clean and well maintained, prices very reasonable and friendly staff. No restaurant but many near buy. Bed was very comfortable. You can park your car in front of your room which is handy. It is close to the airport.

Spent one night at this Inn and LOVED it. The beds are extremely comfortable, the linens are very soft. Not like typical big hotels, starchy and making your skin so dry it hurts. I thought the rooms were large and very clean, good stable wifi is included. On a beautiful summer night with the cool breeze and the stars this...

We recently moved back to Ottawa, and for peace of mind my wife booked into the motel for three days around our move. Once again it was like home in so many ways. The only slightly negative thing was that the towels are too hard! Perhaps some fabric softener??? LOL

Continental breakfast is very lacking; room was clean but smelt like stale smoke and mould; staff is friendly and nice but for more than $100 a night, I would have expected more. Wifi was free; no elevator to second story rooms - access to rooms is outside.

Maid service is excellent. Breakfast is not all that but overall it's great. It's in a good location, not in the core but yet close to stores and restaurants. no charge for parking which is great. The staff is very friendly. The hotel is located in a very nice and calm and area, if you wanna rest, it's perfect.

The rooms were clean, and the bed very comfortable. The hotel is in a nice setting with a park-like as a central courtyard. The WiFi service was excellent. It is also located not far from amenities in Nepean and only a short drive from Ottawa. The breakfast though was quite minimal - just coffee, cereal, muffins.
