Located on Boul de la Gappe and a 15-minute drive from Gatineau Park, this hotel is popular with guests who want to be close to the park for biking, hiking, picnicking or cross-country skiing.

All of the 79 rooms at this smoke-free hotel have free Wi-Fi, a coffeemaker, a hair dryer and an iron and ironing board. Guests can choose between rooms of various sizes and configurations, with queen or double beds. Pets are permitted for a cost of $25/stay.

There is no on-site restaurant, but guests are offered a complimentary continental breakfast daily. There are a number of restaurants within a 5-minute walk of the hotel. Free parking is available on site.

Shopping is nearby at the Promenade de l'Outaouais (one of the biggest malls in the area), a 6-minute walk away. The Casino du Lac-Leamy is a 10-minute drive away. The downtown Ottawa area, with Parliament Hill, the Rideau Canal and the Byward Market is just over a 10-minute drive away. Guests travelling by air should plan on a 33-minute drive to travel the 23 km between the hotel and MacDonald-Cartier International Airport (YOW). (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)

Several guests commented favourably on the price point and felt that they had received good value in return for what they paid.

The Bad
Many of the reviews used for this analysis were positive, but guests did have a few common complaints, most notably about noise disturbances and the size of the breakfast room.

A few guests were bothered by street noise from the highway and from noise from guests in neighbouring rooms and the hallways. Guests complained about loud TVs and about guests slamming doors.

A number of guests felt that the breakfast room was small and that there weren't enough tables and chairs to accommodate multiple guests who wanted to eat at the same time. 

Some guests found the lack of an elevator to be inconvenient.
