    Best deal ever! This was a great stay, I highly recommend it.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    I enjoyed staying here. It was within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. There is a nice park next door. The price was reasonable for all the hotel had to offer. The continental breakfast was decent and the coffee was good. My room had everything I needed including a computer with internet access. The staff was welcoming and very nice. My son has become a Canadian citizen so I will be looking forward staying at the Business Inn again when I frequent Ottawa again.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    Great price, quiet hotel when I was there, roomy, fridge and kitchen, but watch out for the dining chairs, they are falling apart. This hotel is a mix of old and modern, an old building that they seem to be working on to modernize.

    Stayed 1 night in Dec 2019
