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. I apologize that it wasn't what you expected but we keep it light and reflect...

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.

Rideau Heights is a clean, quiet Inn with comfortable beds. Its location to the airport is ideal for anyone who is departing early in the morning, or arriving late at night. We would recommend the Rideau Heights Inn to anyone who may be touring Carleton University, of flying out of the Ottawa Airport.

First time stay. We booked after looking online for an overnight before leaving for an early flight. Free parking for the entire week! The room is spacious, clean, and comfortable. More than what we expected for the price. Close to the airport so the Uber drive didn't cost much. Very happy and will stay here again!

If you have business or are visiting family in the west end of Ottawa, the Rideau Heights Inn is a very clean, pleasant and affordable place to stay. I have stayed there multiple times and found it the quality to be consistent. They will also take small pets and there is a grassy area close by to walk your dog.

Beautiful King bed and couch, big flat screen tv, coffee maker and great shower. Most comfortable mattress we have ever slept on and cozy duvet. Very reasonable price. Close to airport. Reception friendly and helpful. Gave us taxi info. Will definitely stay again!

The inn was very pleasant. The rooms were comfortable with what I can guess is actually a king size bed, not queen, and the "neighbors" were quiet. It is located a short drive away from several attractions, museums and stores. Overall this was an excellent experience.

We stay here a couple times a year when we come to visit our son at university. It's not fancy, but it's clean, quiet and easy to find with free parking and you can't beat the price! 10-15 minutes will put you downtown Ottawa...head downtown early and get a good parking spot and you're all set!
