    We need a clean, safe hotel/motel to stay at the night before we pick up my son from university. We won't be getting there until late evening, so I don't really want to spend money on the downtown hotel we stayed at in the summer. Any suggestions? TIA

    Hi Nancy,

    I recommend any of the Ottawa hotels listed in the following link:

    http://b6.ezboard.com/fpricelineandexpediabiddingfrm211.showMessage?topicID=150.topic

    The link is from www.biddingfortravel.com whose primary purpose is to help people with Priceline bidding. It's also useful for the hotel reviews posted by users. I live in Ottawa and bid the 3 star "Ottawa" zone for some friends. I wound up with the Radisson for about $35 US as I recall. Nice hotel, about 5 minutes from Ottawa U and 10 from Carleton. If you intend to stay close to either university I would avoid the Gloucester and Ottawa West zones (the Ottawa West hotels are actually in Kanata - home of the Ottawa Senators - GO SENS GO! DIE LEAFS!!!! - ahem, sorry, I digress....). The 2.5 * hotel listed, Les Suites, is actually nicer than the 3* Radisson and is closer to Ottawa U.

    Hope it helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!

    I would suggest the Hampton Inn on Coventry Rd. It is close to both Universities, new and very clean. Has a continental breakfast.

    I agree with Surfergirl. A relative of mine was here in Ottawa recently on a business trip & that's where she stayed. I was quite impressed when I went to pick her up. It's right off the Queensway (Ottawa's main highway/throughfare) which provides easy access to almost anywhere (including both Universities).

    I'm counting the days until I go pick up my DS in Waterloo (and 1 day after he gets home I'll be counting the days until I take him back ;))
