The Good
The majority of critiques consulted for this analysis were positive, with much praise going to the hotel's location, value and rooms.

Many reviewers were pleased with the hotel's location. They found it to be easily accessible on and off the highway, as well as close to shopping, restaurants, downtown Ottawa, Parliament Hill and a pharmacy.

The hotel's value was praised by numerous guests. They described the rates as reasonable and affordable, and also felt the hotel provided great value and a good quality to price ratio.

Several lodgers enjoyed the accommodations at this hotel. They described their rooms as clean and well equipped, with good water pressure and comfortable beds. It should be noted however, that a few guests had complaints about their rooms (see below).
The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of common complaints about the rooms, noise transfer and the lack of free breakfast.

Although the majority of guests found their rooms to be clean and well equipped, a few reviewers had issues with their rooms. They felt the beds were too small (the hotel does not offer queen or king beds) and also found the rooms to be too small if accommodating more than two guests. 

Noise transfer was mentioned by a couple of lodgers, who reported being able to hear plumbing noise and also mentioned noisy in-room air conditioning units.

A couple of reviewers were disappointed the hotel does not provide a continental breakfast.
