We stayed here in mid-August. Upon arrival, my room had clearly not been attended to- everything was removed but nothing was set up again- no sheets, pillow cases, not even a shower curtain! After driving for 8 hours with 2 kids, I just wanted to get to my room and go to sleep. It doesn't end there! At 11:30pm the fire alarm stars ringing. I had to drag my 2 children out of bed and down 3 flights of stairs, and sit outside. The firefighters arrive, check the place out, turn the alarms off, and... Read more

Although a dorm style room with 2 bedrooms and a common kitchen area. It was large and clean and no smells or decay as seen in many other hotels. The staff are friendly, free parking, coffee in the morning and wifi. What else could you want for the price. I would definitely stay here again. Keep in mind that it is tucked in behind another building at the St. Paul's university so you have a little bit of a hard time finding it but once you do, it is great.

First time staying in a residence for work. Loved it. Private bedrooms allowed me to get away and watch what I wanted to even when sharing accommodations. Beds were twin size so you can't spread but comfortable non the less. Full size fridge and a table to eat dinner at was nice. This isn't a typical hotel per se but was good for some working guys and the price was right.

Room was a good deal for the price, lots of room and clean. Also nice to have a fridge and microwave. The downside was parking - there aren't any signs to show you where you can park while you check in, I parked in the lot across from the entrance, checked in, took my bags to my room. I went right back to my vehicle to move it to the assigned lot (which is a hike from the front door) to find a $55.00 parking ticket. Suddenly, this room wasn't a good deal anymore! It is ridiculous not having some... Read more

Cold room and you can't turn off the fan or change temperature as it is locked The wifi doesn't work and front desk asked you to bring down all your devices to set them up. There were a huge line up for wifi setup at front desk. It is 2016, if you can't setup wifi property and let your guests connect it by themselves. Try doing some other business. I get better wifi service at mama & papa's B&B!

It's a college residence, making use of the off-season. The staff is young; perhaps they are hospitality students. It's nice to think that your accommodation dollar goes to support the school, instead of some cadre of rich folks somewhere else in the world. But the facilities are mediocre. Low grade appointments work OK. Hot water ran out. Very long walk from elevator to furthest reaches of building, where my room was. Needs a paint job. Bed and pillow are a little tired. Small picture tube ... Read more

The rooms were a bit of a walk from the front lobby, but were spacious compared to a hotel room (2 bedrooms with a shared bathroom and mini-kitchen). Not a luxury accommodation, but worked well for our large group of students. Wifi was tricky to get, but once logged in, worked well enough. Little store with snacks and drinks in the lobby, and a mall behind the facilities. The biggest disappointment was the breakfast we were served - the hashbrowns and sausage were good, the eggs and coffee were... Read more

We stopped by before booking and were offline. We were shocked to learn the rate was so much higher in the lobby! The staff is comprised of young coed and all are very helpful and considerate BUT there are seasons when Neither HEAT OR A/C are available. This old centralized (Soviet-style) heating system may be okay with college youngsters but for elders it is painful if the weather turns cold in June and the nights of Ottawa can be clear and nordic. Yes, it is clean. Central to Ottawa? N... Read more

These dorms are perfect for student life but not for visiting family or business travel at all. There is nothing interesting around here except a shopping mall and everything else is pretty far away which will end up costing you traveling fees. Rooms and service are pretty cheap even the bed sheets are cheap and thin. Adding to that is not even a flat screen TV it has those old tube TVs.

Stayed 1 night. This is not an operating hotel but a student residence. Will sleep 2 comfortably but more will be a tight fit. For the price this place was great. Check in was quick and the room was clean and quite. Free parking. Lots of amenities steps away.

Their description is accurate - you get exactly what they describe. If the very comfortable beds are meant for two, they better know each other biblically. Wi-Fi is unreliable. Service is average at best. Laundry is a pretty easy setup though.

My teenaged son wanted to visit Calypso Water Park in Ottawa and see the sound and light show on Parliament Hill. We were on a tight budget so we picked the Algonquin College Residence for accommodations. It was perfect. 2 bedrooms gave mother and son comfort and privacy. The staff was excellent and helpful. I gave it a 5 star rating because it was exactly what it promised. It's an inexpensive place to stay near all attractions. I only had a few issues It was difficult to find which buildi... Read more

The room was clean and the beds were comfy same for the pillows. This was not my first time staying at a residence from this chain and while the beds were the most comfortable it stopped there. The wifi they advertised was not working and for some reason in my room the ethernet port was blocked off so I couldn't even connect my router that I usually bring. The bathroom was clean and had one of those Eco flush toilets but the shower head was terrible there was more water pressure at the arena we... Read more
