      econolodge has some "nice" hotels around the world but this one was really disappointing. It was ugly outside and inside, the staff was 80% in a bad mood. Except for an Asian lady at breakfast, the others hardly greeted you. The only reason we stayed there was the location and free parking...

    • Group of friends

      It's fairly close to Parliament Hill - walking distance, although the unusual heat made it uncomfortable. Close to shopping.

      Our rooms were on the 2nd floor - an elevator would have been handy.

    • Single

      The location is great and the bed was very comfortable. Many tv channels (:

      All windows turn to the driveway and to the deck, so opening a window makes the room completely not private. People are walking on these decks....

      I liked the fact that I was close to the market and ease of parking the reception area was presentable and the people were very curteous

      I felt it was unsafe - people were smoking marigiuana outside, people were clearly living there - doing laundry, cooking, children playing on balcony. This was clearly not a business staying hotel the rooms were substandard the air conditioning unit was loud and working fairly, the bathroom was run down looking but clean. I would never stay at one again

      My stay at Econo Lodge was brief,only 1 night.The staff was very friendly.Location was very nice to close to the Parliament Buildings

    • Older travelers

      The hotel was convenient to downtown.

      The hotel needs some maintanance. The outdoor walkways had a rubber lining which was very slippery with the blowing snow.

    • Group of friends
      7.8

      The management was friendly and the room was clean.

      I think they should use real cups cups for their complinentary coffee in the rooms. Starfoam does not do.

    • Couple
      3.8

      To be honest, the only thing I liked was the location, which is close to all amenities.

      The room was not clean properly and there was a lot of noise from the rooms beside and above. There were kids next door and they'd shout, jump, and punch the walls all the time.

    • Older travelers

      Easy access from the highway; Very pleasant Staff (offifce, breakfast room); reasonable price

      Broken & malfunctioning bathtub

    • Group of friends

      Location

    • Single
      5.0

      I liked the fact that it is 15 minutes walk from the university

      There is a lot of noise. The room is old. The breakfast is more than basic and served in styrofoam.

    • Couple
      6.6

      Good situation near the city center.

      In comparison value/price small and older rooms, very thin walls (to the neighbour rooms).
