Positive Reviews

Right Near Downtown Area

If you are coming to Ottawa to check out the downtown area, this is going to be the hotel for you. The hotel is only about ten minutes away from the downtown area by vehicle, giving you access to it all.

Right Near Shopping Center

Whether you want to head to the mall or check out local restaurants, you will have your pick of the litter at Chimo. It's right near it all, so you can get there and start having fun.

Lovely On-Site Pool

When you are ready for a day in the sun, the hotel's pool is the place to be. It is a great spot to relax and unwind as you soak up some sunshine.

Negative Reviews

Terrible Internet Connection

When you go to use the Internet, you might have a tough time getting a connection. Though the hotel offers you free access, it isn't a very strong connection. It drops out often and might be unavailable for long periods of time.

Old, Musty Smell Throughout

Because guests used to be able to smoke in the hotel, and it was never cleaned thoroughly, you will likely smell cigarettes and old, musty smells while you are there. This can be troublesome if you have health issues or are sensitive to smells.

Could Be Cleaner

From dirty floors to soiled linens, the hotel could use some refreshing throughout. It has gone through some wear and tear throughout the years, and would benefit from having deep, thorough cleaning.
