My stay was great. Algonquin residences are in same building so it was perfect for visiting my son without having to pay full hotel costs. Rates are reasonable and room was simple and clean. The room was fairly quiet for a residence.

The best parts is the two separate, large bedrooms. The worst part is the showers that have very little water pressure. Its tough to clean up and stay warm under this tiny bit of water coming out. This was a very significant drawback.

We were there for my son to experience Algonquin College rez life (close enough!). Check-in was fine, but there was no-one manning the desk at any other time during our stay. The housekeeping staff came 15 minutes before we were ready to leave for the day -- I told them to come back in 15 minutes & they did not....

Needed a cheap place to stay near family tried it and it was OK. Just OK. 2 Bdroom layout good for family trips. Pro's: 1) Cost 2) Quiet for student residence 3) Location Cons: 1) Using a charge card to pay for parking was a pain (unless I had a rookie deskclerk) conflict of sorts between residence & college. 2)...

For $68 a night this is a really good deal. It's like getting an apartment minis a living room. Two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. That's better then some hotels. And it's right down town. Course if your older with kids you feel a little funny walking into a college dorm and getting a "hotel" room. But if you get passed...

The place is clean, but run down and extremely basic, for $100/night you would expect more. They provide toilet paper and tissue paper, nothing whatsoever in the kitchen other than the coffee maker, microwave and fridge, no plates, cutlery or anything of the sort. Sheets and blanket are thin, but clean. The bed is a double, metal frame, spring bed,...

My sister and I stayed here to attend a family function at a nearby location in Ottawa. We each had our own room and it was lovely and quiet. We brought breakfast food and our own dishes taking full advantage of the kitchen.

During the summer it has a very good price to rent and it's cheaper than during the educational semester. It's small but worth it. There are amenities to have fun with friends such as ping pong table, a pool, soccer field and so on.

Stayed here with my mom. It was a two bedroom dorm. Kitchenette with table and two chairs, microwave, fridge and keurig machine. Very clean. Friendly and professional staff. No problems during our stay. Close to stores, restaurants and coffee shops. Bus stop right in front. Would definitely stay here, again. Thank you.
