I always stay at this hotel when we visit family in Kingston. the beds are very comfortable and the rooms quite cosy with a fireplace. We really enjoy the prime rib dinner either in Tom's Place or Stefans. It is very central to the place we want to go. the staff is very friendly and accomodating. A very good breakfast... More

Long time reader, first time poster. Glad to see that this property has gone from back from # 2 in Kingston to # 1. Sarah at front desk made for a great check-in experience and the room was incredibly comfortable. I would not look at any other place to stay in Kingston.

I stayed at Best Western for the first time ever earlier in May and I have to say it was the best stay I've had in any hotel ever. Right from checking in Kyle was great, the room was spotless, in fact I swore I could still smell the cleaner they used to clean the room. The staff were great... More

Fantastic place, comfortable, clean, all around FANTASTIC. People at front desk very professional and accommodating. Food in restaurant was well put together and presented by chef. Service staff in restaurant and bar side were pleasant and professional. As for the bar lounge side, it was decorative and comfortable. All I was missing was either a fine cigar or pipe and... More

Stayed one night in the "Tranquility Base". One night is enough, as with no windows and the space theme you feel a little squirrelly. The jacuzzi was Huge, and we loved it. Champagne, strawberries and in room breakfast were a nice touch. I'd do it again :)

Stayed at the Fireside Inn for one night, I have been to Kingston many times and stayed at both the Peach Tree (awful) and the Ambassador (out of date) decided to try this one as it has always looked nice on the outside and the price seemed fair. The check in and check out experiences were both great- no issues.... More

A nice, very clean hotel; with pleasant and helpful staff. Comfortable, country-pine charm rooms with electric fireplace which is a nice bonus. They have plenty of old books to read and the staff were kind enough to suggest taking one. Please note there is no elevator and the beds are higher than normal. Would suggest on booking mentioning to have... More

I had high hopes for this place. Very nice rooms, Great bar, and a decent restaurant. But the noise.... The walls are so thin i can tell that the person next door is a guy because i can hear him pee. It's currently 12 am and there are people talking in the hallway, a baby screaming next door, and a... More

We spent one night at the Best Western Fireside Inn and were pleased. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and basic. (the fireplace is electric so doesn't add huge ambience.) There is a very tiny refrigerator and no microwave, but the breakfast is great. It includes make your own waffles, scrambled eggs that are not from a powder, etc. There are... More
