We enjoyed our night as we did on our previous stay. The room was great as always. I did have one concern regarding the breakfast buffet and my wife's allergy to gluten. The gluten free bread was in with the regular bread which can easily contaminate it and make the person, who is gluten free, very sick. Also, it was... More

A hotel providing excellent accommodation and restaurant. Located on Princess Street across from the Kingston Centre and with ready access to points of interest and the university and college in the city.

Fantastic hotel. Pleasant staff, quaint set up! This property is the perfect place for both business travel or leisure. The decor was charming and the atmosphere was relaxing. Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Decor made the room romantic, comfortable and peaceful. This was like going to a family cottage but the luxuries of an upscale hotel. Most amazing... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night while travelling east. The room had been decorated in a "lodge" theme with wooden decoy ducks and old books on a shelf. Very unique. The room was spotless, wifi worked well and we had no issues. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and knowledgeable .We would certainly recommended this... More

It was our anniversary so I wanted someplace decent to spend the evening and the night. The standard room was a unique hardwood brown comfortable room with a large TV and great selection of channels. The free wifi is popular with us too. The bathroom was pretty average but the quiet heater and the ease of going outside to the... More

I am writing this from Suite 140 of this hotel. I have done a fair amount of travelling and never seen anything quite like this. The suite has a Jacuzzi in the living room. The furniture is a combo of early 20th century Canadian colonial, $30 a night motel room, and Don Draper's den. The bathroom? State of the art... More

We were in Kingston for a funeral,so it wasn't the greatest time for us. We found the room to be very dated and the had an smell to it. The bed was't the great and kind of lumpy so we didn't get a greats night sleep and you could hear very door opening and closing.

Don' t get the wrong impression, the hotel itself is well maintained and when you see your room you'll be impressed. I understand each room has its own theme. Very creative. The included breakfast is a pleasant surprise.

I'm from Kingston, and the Fireside Inn has been a familiar site to me my entire life. During an Easter Weekend family visit, my wife and I decided to stay over. (It's conveniently close to where family live.) The room was a pleasant surprise. Clean, modern, and well-looked-after, with a nice sofa and a fake fireplace. The bed was especially... More
