            Nice to be near the river but the trees could be trimmed a bit so it could be seen.

            Black stains on carpet. The patio door did not slide smoothly and I hurt my fingers when it finally moved sharply against the screen door. The decor and furnishings could use some maintenance and upgrading - eg nice bathroom but the rusty baseboard heater should be painted or replaced. Cable input was disconnected on tv. Box spring under mattress squeaked badly. Breakfast room had no place to put used dishes, no one seemed to be available to replace empty milk cartons. Over all, it seemed like the motel lacked care for its appearance and guest amenities. Very disappointing for the price.

            When in Ottawa, I always stay at the Monterey Inn. It is conveniently located for my work and pleasure.

            Got to change those pillows and get more comfortable ones. This is the only negative issue for your Inn.

            Nice Location

            Beds were very uncomfortable. The Riverview was mainly obstructed by trees.

            When we phoned from our car about directions to get there the woman who answered was very helpful and very friendly. Later we needed extra creamer and sugar packets and asked one of the cleaning staff who immediately went and got them for us. Excellent service, thank you.

            One of us requires a very low, soft pillow to sleep on. It would be nice if not all of the pillows were high and fluffy.

            Nice view from the room to the river, parking the car just in front of the room door, clean and comfortable room.

            The continental breakfast was basic (but included in the price).

            The staff were terrific, very helpful. We ate at the hotel and did not have to go out on a cold winter night. Food was good.

            The beds were terrible; I ended up sleeping in a chair all night so my back would not be ruined. As well, the room was extremely stuffy; there was no thermostat to set; the air conditioning cameon every 1/2 hour or so no matter what the temperature was; extremely uncomfortable.

            Friendly staff, near from airport, nothing else

            Location is very far from anything ...nothing by walking distance, not a resort at all, the room service is provided through a restaurant next to it however, last order was 10pm. No room service after that !!!!

            It was the only thing available with a late booking on University move in weekend. We got a smoking room which is not a good comparison. This is a basic utility motel.

            Tim Horton's next door.

            Floral decor in the room . The toilet ran on, very irritating at 1am. ( 217 )

          • Group of friends

            It was close to the airport

            No phone no wake up call stuffed in the back of the lot and no services like a pop machine or ice they advertized a pool and spa but could not find them. The $800 a night should be about $50
