  • Terrible.
    I just left on a Saturday night to check out Steamworks in Ottawa. It was very much dead and a great disappointment. Obviously it cannot compare to the saunas in larger cities, but I was extremely dissatisfied. Not only did the staff worker lie to me that they were busy, but the facilities are extremely outdated and poorly maintained. Rusted lockers, gross looking rooms, and far too much space for what seemed to be a "busy" night - which really consisted of a handful of less than 15 men in their 50s lurking around. I was very unimpressed, and when I asked for a refund they were very rude about it. Unlike other saunas I have been, they would allow for a refund if you are not satisfied. Unfortunately they have lost a customer by their inane policies. Overall the large spaces have great potential, but I don't think Ottawa's gay scene really allows for an active men's sauna. This place should really be reconsidered in even existing.
