Reviewed 16 June 2014

We stayed here for a Monday night and again for two nights the following weekend. The location is great when you are flying in or out of Ottawa. The front end staff is fluently bilingual and helpful. To see the city we could drive to the nearby Greenboro Park and Ride, located just north of the South Keys Shopping Center and take the fast bus to Mc Kenzie King Station. We found the young University student who works there at night most interesting and knowledgeable. To sum up this is a great place to stay when you are on a budget, breakfast is very basic cold cereal, coffee and muffins but what do you expect at the price. Recommended!

I wasn't sure what to expect at an older model inn. However, it was very clean and had had some new refurbishments in the bath area and newer bedding and TV. Overall, I was very pleased and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Also the service was very friendly.

Stayed here for one night when flying into Ottawa. Bed was very comforable and staff were friendly and accommodating throughout the stay. The breakfast is self service and there is nowhere to sit, but then this is not a problem because the room is very spacious and there are outside areas to sit out if the weather is good.

There is also a good shopping centre just a 10 miunte walk away (off Hunt Club Road), with good resstaurants to eat and a couple of shopping outlets.

The bathroom facilties are fine and the shower is of a decent power. The only disappointing aspect of the hotel is that, despite being close to the airport, there is no easy way to get there. There is no direct bus and you cannot really walk there, which means a taxi has to be ordered for a 5 minute ride. Maybe there is a possibility of sorting some sort of shuttle service in the future which I would have happily paid 5-10 dollars extra for? Saying that, the location itself is lovely and is really quite scenic if you go for a 5 minute walk away from the main roads.

This is only a small point and overall I think that the place was really good and great value for money!

Nick,
Many thanks for your detailed review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at the Rideau Heights Inn. I agree, the public transit isn't exactly convenient when traveling to the airport. I will definitely mention your thoughts on a shuttle to the owners. They always appreciate the feedback. Thank you again and I hope to see you the next time your in Ottawa.

I stayed for the long weekend in May and found it very good really. The rooms are extremely clean. The non smoking bedroom is really non smoking, nothing smells! I was really amazed.
The only bad thing was that the young fella who works at the reception was always eating! But other than that everything was impeccable! Thumbs up!

Thank you very much for your review of the Rideau Heights Inn. Who can evaluate a hotel better than the people that stay here, right? Being a small hotel without all of the bells and whistles we really value a clean room, a comfortable place to sleep, and friendly staff. I will however, mention to our staff to dine in the staff room! Thank you for mentioning it to me. See you next time your in the Ottawa area!

My wife and I spent the night at this inn on 23 May. Its location is not far from downtown. The environment is quiet and relaxing. The carpark is spacious. The staff was friendly. The room was clean. The muffins were absolutely delicious. We highly recommend this inn to anyone.

Very clean rooms, super comfortable bed, they have a mini fridge in the room which is very convenient.Air conditioning. Friendly and helpful staff. Quiet and a beautiful place to sit outside to relax with grass and big trees, adirondak chairs which is absolutely great. You can park right ouside your door.
