Coronavirus Notice

Rotel has closed temporarily due to health safety and staff availability during the pandemic.

It is a difficult and emotional time for all involved and we hope to be operational soon to help those in need of affordable accommodations near the hospital.



Providing modern, low cost accommodation to outpatients during treatment as well as family and friends of patients at Ottawa-area hospitals. 

Be there for your loved one during their stay at an Ottawa hospital.

Stay at ROTEL – for a fraction of the cost of any other regular Ottawa motel or hotel you’ll be nearby Ottawa hospitals and specialized hospital clinics.

We recognize how important it is to have caring family and friends nearby during periods of illness. So, we’ve made it our mission to help patients and their loved ones stay together when it matters most.

We also welcome outpatients from out-of-town who are using specialized clinics and are looking for a low-cost place to stay. Ultimately, our goal is to ensure that family members, friends, and outpatients in need have an affordable and convenient place to stay.

See an aerial view video of Rotel, and how close it is to neighbouring hospitals, on our Photos page.

ROTEL is a 51-room, non-profit motel that serves out-of-town families and friends of Ottawa hospital patients.
