Reception on arrival very indifferent. no info given about things to do unless questioned. The check in girl carried on her conversation with her co-worker during the whole process. Bed was HARD AS A ROCK! Floor would have been just as comfortable. Really high to get up into as well. Breakfast was odd with corn beef hash and beans? Tom's... More

Nice rooms, great décor. Quick check-in and they had our requests on file and honoured them with no problem. The staff was happy and friendly. The restaurant is not open on Mondays so we did not eat there, we ate at Tom's Lounge which was very good. Buffet breakfast was well done, good variety.

Our 1st choice has always been Best Western and although we will not return to this hotel we will continue to choose Best Western but with caution. We required a step stool to get into the bed and as the bathroom was so small my husband who is in a wheelchair could not use it. The room cost us $224.00.... More

Recent email I sent to the manager: Dear Sir/Madam, Under normal circumstances, I am not given to writing to hotels or other service providers, but in this instance, I felt it was necessary. I and my wife of 34 years had occasion to stay at the Best Western in Kingston the night of Thursday, August 14, 2014. We were on... More

Traveling on business, I was greeted by warm and welcoming staff. I checked in quickly and easily and was "sent to my room"! My standard room featured a four post bed, nice leather love seat and fireplace and in a tasteful decor. Other reviews suggest this property is dated...not true. The room is decorated very nicely with many small details... More

Paid 160 and expected a Marriot level of service. Unfortunately everything in this hotel is dated. Restaurant, rooms, decor, plates.. everything. There may be some who enjoy going back in time. Time has its value but paying 160 in 2014 to stay in a vintage property is for 45+ and a selected few in my opinion. When you have a... More

Initially given a room on the second floor, with no elevator, until I questioned the lack of accessibility was not put in the ads. Then she found me a room on the first floor as I need to use a walker. Room was tired, and carpet questionable. Breakfast was adequate but no bacon was available.

What an awesome stay! Hospitality at its' best! Our first contact with the hotel was with Cathy. She was helpful, energetic, personable and such a great ambassador. There are not enough words to describe her greatness. I haven't been to the hotel in a few years and she kindly filled us in on all the changes that took place. Our... More
