Front Desk staff was not at all friendly, I asked him his name and he replied: Why? May be he just read Shakespeare's quote; What's in a name! Anyway, the room was clean (after having us wait for about 15 minutes) Though we reached at 4:15 and the check in time says 3 pm! But nice location and quite place....

Don't let the fact that this is a motel fool you! We have stayed in many other places in Ottawa and this is by far the best for comfort and budget. The bed is super comfy, the rooms are always clean and the location is great. The best place for the price I've ever stayed at. We will definitely be...

We found this to be a nice motel. It is not a Hilton, but not a dive. The room was clean, and in reasonable repair. Not perfect, but not bad. On the not perfect side, there were some rust spots in the paint on the ceiling in the tub area. There were some bumps in the carpet near the door....

We appreciated a clean, quiet room & found the beds to be very comfortable. The hotel staff were very friendly & helpful. The decor was a little outdated but very clean. The basic breakfast was appreciated. Hotel was in a great location for us, easy to find and we would use this hotel again.

The Inn is clean and quiet. It is not near downtown Ottawa but it is easy to get there by car. The TV did not work well (very grainy picture) so we just streamed stuff on our laptops since the wifi worked well. I would not bother with the breakfast. It was not to my taste. Overall, comfortable, affordable, friendly...

Room was very clean and bright. Supplies kept up daily. would like to have a hair conditioner supplied. Staff friendly and helpful. Location excellent and easy to get in and out of. Took several of the business cards and told many people at the function we attended about Rideau Heights Inn. Price is reasonable. Scanty breakfast offerings but space is...

Well for a pet it was a good location as it has large property to walk them but rooms are a bit past their prime. Room is large and was clean for the most part. They claim to have breakfast but don't let that be the think that makes you stay here because it was of no value. Just a...

Good Morning Ross, Thank you for taking the time to place a review. It is unfortunate to hear your stay wasn't as expected. We do advertise a light breakfast that consists of coffee, tea, cereal, and muffins. It is quick bite to start your day.

We travel a lot to Ottawa and we always book at Rideau Heights inn as the price is affordable and the location and amenities are excellent compared to other hotels in the area. The location is not too far from the airport and not too far from Downtown Ottawa. Rideau Heights Inn is ahead of the curve when it comes...

Easy and quick check in. Large room was clean and had king bed. Very comfortable. Large TV with good picture quality. Will use this Inn again on my next trip. Did not try the breakfast as I was late for a meet.

2nd time staying here. Always clean, nice staff. Room is generous size and the king bed was very comfortable. 15 minutes to downtown with a simple route. The only think keeping it from a 5 star was due to weak Internet speed.

“Many rooms don't have stairs, which is great. Being able to park the car right outside the door was nine.”

“Lots of pillows were supplied but had to request a blanket from the office as we prefer to have sleeping quarters cooler and there was only a light duvet on the bed. Could perhaps offer fruit and a juice at breakfast.”
