What a view! I have stayed other places in Kingston but I really like this place. The staff is very friendly and helpful as soon as you walk in the door. Rooms are clean and taken care of. within walking distance to everything you need. I always enjoy arriving a few days early and wandering around.

We booked our room thru a reserved block of rooms for a friend's wedding, and also got a reduced price because of it. To be honest if we had paid full price i probably would have been very disappointed and possibly complained! The room was average, but we were disappointed in the tiny outdated bathroom. Although everything was nice in... More

This hotel is a fantastic choice for people who want to be in the middle of the downtown activity. We stayed at the Holiday Inn while we were in town for a concert with three other couples. Ate dinner and then later went for drinks at the pub right beside the hotel. And the next morning Tim Hortons is extremely... More

Needing only to spend one night in Kingston, we chose the Holiday Inn Express based off several positive experiences with the chain throughout America. The first thing we noticed was the hotel’s close proximity to the Wolfe Island ferry, which we needed for our return trip the next day. The hotel is also located very close to several restaurants and... More

My husband and I and a friend decided to spend the night here since we got to Kingston on the later side and was not able to catch the 1000 Island Cruise on time. We have stayed in other Holiday Inns before and have always been satisfied. The service was excellent. In front of our room, there was a beautiful... More

Stayed here in March during a particularly cold spell. It was also on a Weekend when hockey tournaments for kids of all ages were in full swing at the nearby K-Rock Centre on Tragically Hip Way ( yes, the Tragically Hip are from Kingston). The hotel was packed with kids and parents and impossibly huge equipment bags etc. However, check-in... More

Just staying at here for one night and for being one of the prime hotels in Kingston we were disappointed for the price we paid. The pillows were comfortable and so was the bed. Cleanliness was a little poor, no way I'd take a bath in the tub. Hate to take a towel to the outdoor furniture it was filthy.... More

Stayed for a week when visiting my cousin in hospital & found the location both convenient and pleasant, having a lovely harbour view. My room was clean with extremely comfortable beds & pillows, wifi worked perfectly, clean bathroom, plenty of towels although had to wait several minutes for hot water each time, fittings a bit dated and generally a little...

Like the majority of the Holiday Inn in USA. Cleaned, trained staff, but normal and made for sleeping with nothing more special than the necessary. Rooms in the waterfront should be a must, but we stayed in the room to the parking area view. If cheap, it's good.
