Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike727 My stay in Ottawa
I recently spent 10 nights at the Holiday Inn Nepean while in Ottawa for business. The room set up was perfect for an extended stay, I like the creative placement of the bathroom in the middle of the room to create a 2 room suite effect. Perfect in size and nice to have 2 separate rooms, one to relax in and another to sleep in.
A couple things I would recommend, as a priority member I am usually greeted and offer a small welcome bag with water and snacks, I did not get one upon arrival. It is a small thing but it was definitely a miss, it is nice to have a couple of bottles of water at least offered after a long day of traveling.
Breakfast was a little disappointing, the selection is the typical hotel buffet breakfast but the hotel ran out of a number of things over the weekend, offering bagels and no cream cheese (again small item but it is in the details). I would also like to see some healthy choices for breakfast, fresh cut up fruit would be great.
Overall I was very satisfied with my stay, a couple small misses but I would stay there again if I were back in the area.

Enjoyed stay at this hotel. Staff pleasant, friendly and helpful. Hotel location provides convenient access to highway to downtown Ottawa - about 10 - 15 minutes away. Very convenient to a variety of good neighborhood restaurants. The wheelchair accessible room had two double beds and was nicely designed with ample room.

I went for a weekend getaway to Ottawa and choose this hotel, the staff is professional and friendly, they make sure we had everything we needed and the amenities are clean and in perfect condition. We enjoyed the stay. Keep it up.

This hotel is relatively new. It is clean and the staff were great. My only complaint is that the lighting in the bathroom is too dim for putting on makeup.

Your hotel have been exellence to me. One thing I was disappointed when I got your free toothbrush. I hope you can have a better quality toothbrush for your customer in case they forget one. It is worthy to keep your representation. Everything else is pretty good.

The front desk staff was incredibly helpful. Personally screwed up reservation on a holiday weekend, and they made every effort to get my family into a room each night. It was so important to be in this hotel since it was a weekend hockey tournament for my young son.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Peter1900 Nice room
We stayed here for one night in the middle of May. Check in was efficient and friendly. The room was fine - a standard comfortable room. Very clean and well appointed. The pool was nice and warm and the hot tub was hot (as it should be!). The hotel offers free parking. We needed to drive everywhere since the hotel is quite far from downtown Ottawa.
Overall the hotel was quiet and pleasant. Breakfast though was somewhat of a disappointment. There was no waffle maker as is usually found in other Holiday Inn Expresses. Otherwise the food was average fare. The eggs were nice and hot. The toasters hardly browned the bread.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyHanna Long Term Comfort
I needed a place to stay for a few weeks while I waited for possession of my house. HIex offered me a super rate and even gave me a suite (office, sitting area, and a kitchenette) so I could be here comfortably. I did not enjoy the breakfasts as I found the food was not freshly made on site, but I appreciated the free parking. I was too busy to use the pool or fitness centers, but both looked great! Hotel was extremely clean and well kept. Wireless internet was touchy, but eventually worked. Overall excellent expereience. Highly recommended!

This hotel is one of the best in Ottawa. Great value for a family of four. Parking and breakfast included. You can't get that downtown. Clean rooms and an excellent staff. You can tell they are still new.

Except for a mix-up with another Priority customer at reception and the fact that the clerk answer the phone prior to serving a customer waiting at registration for some time this is a good business hotel in Ottawa.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, room was clean and comfortable and my kids enjoyed the pool. Would like to have more fresh fruit offered at breakfast and muffins that were not in a plastic wrapper (didn't have that "fresh-baked appeal) but variety was otherwise good.

Almost new, and someone clever bought doors without any soundproofind capabilitiy. From the hallway to your bed, you can hear people speaking, b-urt, f-art and probably breathing... They forgot about soundproofing requirements when they build the hotel.
Breakfast, almost no choice and not enoug place to seat everyone. They again forgot something when designing the hotel. They even should not advertise breakfast when you cannont seat at a table to eat. For the price, look around at someplace else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessTraveller354 First time staying at the Nepean HIE
I've stayed at HI/E's multiple times for regular business travel. Overall cleanliness was excellent. Check-in was a breeze - my room key was pre-assigned with a free upgrade to a King Suite. Elevator took a little longer to arrive compared to other HI/E's, but bearable. Bed was comfortable and the padded headrest was a nice touch. Breakfast had a good selection - unfortunately the pancake maker was malfunctioning and got fixed as I left. Checkout was easy with the invoice/receipt slipped under my door. I would definitely stay here again.

I book the travel agent rate for this property in February and I had a lovely stay with my parents.
I really like this hotel, I love it. I enjoy how clean it is, staff is so nice and friendly, Daniel & Lindsay.
The breakfast options are lovely.
The pool and hot tub is great.
I stayed here March 8th for 2 nights again with my parents and had the 2 Queen Bed Suite with pull out sofa again, and enjoyed the stay so much. Lovely Hotel. Love the Travel agent rate, what a great place.
Subway is across the street, other food options and also McDonalds at the corner or Moodie/Robertson road. Grocery store is next to the hotel.

My stay would have been enjoyable but for the noise of kids running down the hall between rooms after 10pm. I called to the front desk to complain about the noise, but the stomping feet persisted until 11:00.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisH71 A very comfortable two week stay
I tend to stay in IHG hotels; I must admit that I really enjoyed this particular hotel. You pull into an ample (and free) parking lot, and proceed to do your check-in with efficient, friendly staff in a nicely decorated lobby. Getting into your room, you see a comfortable bed, a nice big-screen TV with lots of channels, and get set up with a very fast wireless internet. Wanting to relax, you can go into the hot tub and pool - hardly anyone was using it while I was there (bonus!) Of course, there are times that you want a good workout. Although there are multiple machines, I focused on the 2 treadmills and the elliptical - all gym-quality.
You also have a decent breakfast included with various grain-based foods (cereals, toast, bagels, etc.), juice, milk, and especially coffee. There are also one option of egg (scrambled or omelette) and meat (sausage, ham, or bacon) for those who like a hot breakfast. If I had one issue, it was that the meat and eggs, although changing on a daily basis, seems to rotate around a 3 or 4 day schedule. Since I was there for two weeks, I was getting a little tired of the repetition. However, you won't notice this if you are there for only a few days.
All in all, a very satisfying stay, and I would come back to this hotel again.

We were visiting Ottawa from Northern Ontario for a medical appointment. Originally, we had been instructed to stay in Ottawa for a night after the procedure. However, the doctor recommended that we start our travel home the same day as the procedure. Despite finding this out well past check-out time, the hotel understood the extenuating circumstances and did not charge us for the second night, although that was what our original reservation was for. We were very appreciative of this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sprocket Very nice property indeed
We stayed here after the death of my Mother, and the staff were most kind to us. This particular hotel is new, clean and pleasant. It is a bit further from downtown and relevant business locations (for some) but it serves well. Despite the circumstances, we enjoyed our stay.
I am a long-time Holiday Inn Express customer; brand loyalty means a lot to me. I have yet to stay at a Holiday Inn Express where any part of the experience was not completely positive. Their recipe is simple: cleanliness, friendly staff, comfortable accommodation and good value for money.
