    Cheap and cheerful

    by

    Hubby and I had so much fun our first few days in Ottawa that we decided to extend our stay. The hotel we were staying in was sold out for that night, so we got a room at the Travelodge Doral Inn (right across the street from our other hotel), over the internet.

    It wasn't the Ritz, but that's not what we were expecting. The hotel was impeccably clean and we enjoyed our night there.

    Unique Quality: This property's motto is "We're small but we're friendly" and it is certainly accurate. The staff were remarkably personable, attentive and helpful.

    It is a small hotel, with small rooms. It was fine for the two of us, but might not suit everyone. Then again, after staying at the Albert at Bay, the Taj Mahal would feel small.

    The Doral Inn doesn't have a lot of extra amenties, but the one really appealing one it does have is free wireless internet access throughout the property, and a computer in the lounge where anyone without a computer can surf the internet, do word processing etc.

    Parking is included in the room rate, however space is limited so you must surrender your car keys at the front desk so that they can move cars around if necessary.

    Directions: On Albert Street near Bay.

by Bwana_Brown about Travelodge Ottawa East

With living in New Brunswick, next door to the Province of Quebec, we had already enjoyed the amazing cities of Quebec City and Montreal on many occasions. As a result, our objective on Day 1 of the drive west to Saskatchewan was to make it as far as Ottawa, Ontario on the first day. We were off at 8:30 AM New Brunswick time (7:30 AM in Ontario) and made the 1000-km, ten-hour drive without any hitches, just slowing a bit as we made our way through construction work in Montreal (there is no way around that huge city located on an island). I picked the Travelodge Ottawa East because it is virtually the first accommodation you will see when arriving in Ottawa from Montreal, and I knew we would not be in any mood to deal with traffic around Ottawa during the 5 PM rush hour. It worked perfectly as we took the exit and found the hotel very easily.

It seems to be tilted toward a younger family crowd, with a heated indoor salt water pool, pets are welcome and free parking. Our room was very nice, as well as comfortable but I could not get their data valet internet service to work properly on my laptop - so that was a bit of a bother. We had not eaten much during our drive, just stopping for some sandwiches to go at noon when we reached the southern shore of the St. Lawrence River about 4 hours into our drive. Fortunately, just across the street from the Travelodge is the Broadway Bar & Grill where we had an enjoyable evening meal with a cold mug of beer!

We paid US$119 including taxes for our stay.
