Our room was nice and clean but here were major issues with water pressure on an ongoing basis - toilet not flushing, no water at all at times, shower running either boiling hot or freezing cold. The wifi was patchy and only really worked out on the patio. Theres lots of mosquitos so wear repellant. The lady in reception on... More

Well this hotel is a very easy going place where you can relax and customer service is great they let me feel like a family away from home. What I mostly realize with these human being you can't please them

Nothing here is true, the desk employees were rude and unhelpful. The room was disgusting and very disappointing it was very dirty and not even live able. The door was broken and made us worry because it took us about 10 minutes to open the door. The balcony door was also broken and because it wouldn't close a lot of... More

This property has the potential to be much better than it is, mainly due to it's unique exterior and its "not very obvious location" . For $70-90/night it still could be better but it isn't, the grounds are not well kept the room lack more than the bare essentials, there is surprisingly a lot of night noise, its pretty run... More

Don't expect too much from this hotel. I recently booked a standard room and I was sorely disappointed when I walked in and saw cracked walls with the paint peeling. The walls were dirty. The overall look and feel of the hotel scream outdated. The staff at the front desk was neither friendly nor helpful. I asked for a room... More

Honestly what more can you ask for for $70/night? Because I travel often to Kingston, I choose low-budget places like here. It's a common thing for me to do anywhere I go. This place couldn't have offered a better value. The rooms are clean, there's hot water, and the entire environment is clean and peaceful. There's also a pool, restaurant... More

This one is more like a guest area than a star hotel. You will experience ambient and pleasant neighborhood. You will what you paid for. As of cleanliness, we can request for service or change of room if you are not satisfied. They try to accommodate guest's needs - solo or group. Few my friends when it in a group... More

Second time in this hotel. Chose it again bec it is pretty good located, just round the corner of Devon House. The grounds are pleasant and friendly. But the rooms are so run down, it is a shame. Take a bucket of paint and re-paint the whole thing,can't be too expensive. Make one cleaning lady wash all the TILES in... More
