“Dependable, Clean & Quiet”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

An old favorite when visiting Ottawa. Rideau Heights Inn never disappoints: good, basic rooms that are always clean and well maintained. Recent upgrades (to bathrooms, flat screen TVs, tiling) are all much appreciated. Thankfully, they also have windows that actually open.
Don't let the cab driver shuttle you to a typical airport hotel. Rideau Heights Inn is a much better alternative, run by people who care about their guests.
No pool, restaurant or other amenities, but there's free coffee and all rooms have small fridges.
We hope the owners will plant more white pines soon; the old ones are slowly declining.

Room Tip: Rooms close to the office are my favorite, because you can park right in front of your door.

While exhibiting at the Cottage Show at the Ottawa CE we wanted comfortable accommodation at a budget price for three nights. After a long day on our feet, it's important to access a hotel room easily and be within easy reach of restaurants that are not blowing our budget as the airport hotels do. Rideau Heights Motel met and exceeded our criteria. Beds were very comfortable, basic facilities such as a fridge and free Wifi were available and it was so nice to simply park the car outside the door of the room. I would have rated sleep quality higher if there had been two pillows per person and if there had been a night stand on both sides of a king bed. Not hugely expensive items that would have increased the standard of this motel.

Room Tip: There are some second level rooms - would recommend ground level for easier access

I was looking for a place not too far from the airport, yet relatively close to Carleton university. This place was ideal for this. A typical motel, a good 30 rooms, most of them with parking right in front of the door. It is not a very modern place, but clean. Muffins, cereal, the paper and coffee were available at the lobby for free in the mornings. Internet access was very slow. All in all, an ok place for 100$/night.

We had a great overall experience staying at the Rideau Heights Inn. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. We had a king room with a sofa bed. The bath area had been completely redone, the room was immaculate and the bed was as comfortable as any that we have slept in. There was a refrigerator in the room and a microwave at the front desk that we could use. The location is away from the downtown bustle but a short drive to see all the sights. I would recommend this motel to anyone who does not need to be right downtown and who does not want to pay the downtown prices.

if you are looking for a very pleasant stay in a city known for high accomodation prices,go no further.this is a family run motel that has been apart of the ottawa scene for a long time.it has almost a retro feel to it with spacious ground and free parking,also unusual in this town, in a quiet area away from the travel hordes and near the airport.it has very clean,comfortable rooms,and while it doesn't have all the amenities of the big brand hotels,it has enough to make most casual travellers happy.a microwave in the office can provide hot meals and free coffee and muffins get you going in the morning.
