Nice hotel, good value, ample free parking, friendly staff. The room was clean, but the carpet had what seemed to be a vomit (?) stain that wasn't cleaned up properly. When we first arrived, the carpet had a very strong "after vacuum /no air freshener smell" that didn't go away until I opened the door and held it open with...

Once again I stayed at WelcomINNS, during a business trip in Ottawa, around two months ago. And, again it went fabulous. All rooms are well maintained and chic. Food was good and fresh. Décor of the building is very impressive and can be compared with fine hotels in different countries. Customer service is great and amenities are world class. If...

This hotel is undoubtfully one of the best I ever stayed in Canada in this price range. Although it's a bit dated, it's clean and looks good outside and inside. What I liked the most, was the customer service. As soon as we checked in, our little daugter started playing and put a small wooden stick into the heater (it's...

Having heard that this hotel got a facelift, I decided to give it a try for a recent trip to Ottawa. The hotel is located off of St Laurent Blvd, right next to a large shopping mall and a variety of restaurants. By car, it is a 5-10 minute drive to get downtown. They have a shuttle that I did...

Stayed overnight in a room with two double beds. It was clean but a little dated. Older model TV with a fair channel selection and the bathroom fixtures are showing their age. Bake-your-own waffles, cereal, muffins, hard boiled eggs, toast for breakfast which was quite good.

We often stay here when we visit our daughter in Ottawa. It is reasonable, convenient and very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are a good size and the beds are comfortable.
