What was expected for the price. Outside sign says 'renovated'; as long as renovated means new wallpaper and some tile work. The inside was tired and the rooms small. Furniture outdated. Small TV- I couldn't turn the night table light on because the switch was broken. Available continental breakfast was as basic as they come. No pool. Lobby and hallways... More

We were in town for a function at the university, just needed a place to sleep. Surprisingly comfortable bed and pillows. Room and bathroom were very clean, bedding was fresh and new. Furniture was a bit shabby, though. View was not a priority (thankfully, it was not pretty). We had problems with the television and hair dryer not working; when... More

This close to the city center is an ideal place to stay at an affordable price. The staff are super friendly and very accommodating. I have stayed here before and the accommodations have not changed, which is a plus. I will be back.

About $150 per night for a quiet but rather old room; awfull noisy air conditionning which makes sleeping a tricky exercice. We would definitely not recommand. Infrastructure assez ancienne. La clim est tellement bruyante qu'il en est diificile de dormir. Ne recommandons pas.

The location is pretty close, it's about a 5 min. drive to the main spot of Princess Street where all the shops and good eats are. Also where you're going to find most of the attractions and the Island Cruises. The hotel staff was friendly, the lobby was clean so were the areas in the hotel - the carpets were... More

Disappointing. I understand the prices for everything are going up, on a normal basis… and almost never the other way. However, since I do travel quite a lot, bot in North America and Europe, I have some idea in regards to value and minimum norms of hygiene and service. What is above and beyond and what is… well… below the... More

They claim to be newly renovated. I guess I expected more. Check-in on both occasions was quick and uneventful. I quickly noticed the very first hallway door had a broken handle, half hanging out. Next, I found the electrical sockets wall-papered over, and instead of cutting out the entire box rectangle, they just went ahead and jammed-in the appliance plugs.... More

The only good thing about the room were the beds. They were very comfortable. Also lots of free parking. Other than that, I would not stay here again. The price was decent, but I have since discovered other newer hotels. There was a musty smell in the hallways.The crank to open the window was broken. The fridge had mold in... More

I travel to Kingston with about a dozen college students for an annual snowshoe race and we've been staying at the Econo Lodge for the past three years. Getting in and out of the parking lot have improved, and check in and departure is fine. The front desk management seems quiet yet accommodating. The breakfast offerings are limited, but certainly...
