    econolodge has some "nice" hotels around the world but this one was really disappointing. It was ugly outside and inside, the staff was 80% in a bad mood. Except for an Asian lady at breakfast, the others hardly greeted you. The only reason we stayed there was the location and free parking...

  • Group of friends

    It's fairly close to Parliament Hill - walking distance, although the unusual heat made it uncomfortable. Close to shopping.

    Our rooms were on the 2nd floor - an elevator would have been handy.

  • Single

    The location is great and the bed was very comfortable. Many tv channels (:

    All windows turn to the driveway and to the deck, so opening a window makes the room completely not private. People are walking on these decks....

    I liked the fact that I was close to the market and ease of parking the reception area was presentable and the people were very curteous

    I felt it was unsafe - people were smoking marigiuana outside, people were clearly living there - doing laundry, cooking, children playing on balcony. This was clearly not a business staying hotel the rooms were substandard the air conditioning unit was loud and working fairly, the bathroom was run down looking but clean. I would never stay at one again

    My stay at Econo Lodge was brief,only 1 night.The staff was very friendly.Location was very nice to close to the Parliament Buildings

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    The hotel was convenient to downtown.

    The hotel needs some maintanance. The outdoor walkways had a rubber lining which was very slippery with the blowing snow.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The management was friendly and the room was clean.

    I think they should use real cups cups for their complinentary coffee in the rooms. Starfoam does not do.

  • Couple
    3.8

    To be honest, the only thing I liked was the location, which is close to all amenities.

    The room was not clean properly and there was a lot of noise from the rooms beside and above. There were kids next door and they'd shout, jump, and punch the walls all the time.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Easy access from the highway; Very pleasant Staff (offifce, breakfast room); reasonable price

    Broken & malfunctioning bathtub

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    Location

    The smell of room and smoke from other rooms

  • Older travelers

    the accessability to things we wanted to see in Ottawa

  • Single
    5.0

    I liked the fact that it is 15 minutes walk from the university

    There is a lot of noise. The room is old. The breakfast is more than basic and served in styrofoam.

  • Couple
    6.6

    Good situation near the city center.

    In comparison value/price small and older rooms, very thin walls (to the neighbour rooms).
