Reasonable rate, convenient location
Posted Oct 24, 2016
The newly remodeled rooms and amenities appear quite comfortable and clean, although the building's halls and stairwells are certainly still dated and yield a sense of old musky motels. Be aware there is no elevator, so luggage needs to be hauled up the single flight of stairs. The front staff are friendly, and the rooms were well cleaned each day of your stay. Parking is abundant in any case, and it is relatively closely located to the Lonely Star Texan Grill and a Pizza Pizza within walking distance, so food is accessible. Breakfast was plain/rudimentary, but a welcome amenity for the business traveler. The St. Laurent Mall across the street offers much of what anyone could need for shopping/entertainment, and the bus loop there allows access to downtown and south Ottawa by a single bus taking ~30 minutes. For those interested, there is also a card and board game store next to the Pizza Pizza.
For the cost per night, it's about standard for what you might expect of an upper end motel, lower end hotel. There's a Welcome Inn and Holiday Inn right beside them, and I suspect the price to value ratio here is probably better.
