The hotel is older but the rooms have been redone. rooms have fireplaces and a sitting area.. Bathroom is very nice and looked very new. Shower has a double shower head which was very nice. Beds are very comfortable.Staff are all friendly including those at the desk and the housekeepers. A huge plus of this place is that there are... More

After celebrating my 60th birthday in Ottawa with family and friends, we decided to travel to Kingston for another weekend celebration with friends who live there. I was delighted not only that my air miles paid for one of the two days we spent there but also with the Best Western which turned out to be a fine hotel. Good... More

My husband and I stayed in the car fantasy suite last Sunday. The room looked lovely when we went in. When I pulled down the spread to get into bed the bottom sheet was totally wrinkled and marked. My guess was the sheets had not been changed so we would not lie between the sheets. Breakfast: I ordered my eggs... More

STAY HERE, STAY HERE, STAY HERE !!! Even if you have to drive out of your way, STAY HERE! The room was PHENOMINAL, and "Stefan's Bistro" will equal any 5 star restaurant that you could want to eat at. N.B. Megan is the "server of the DECADE!". All staff were excellent, with special thanks going to Darlene from Housekeeping. Tom's... More

Old facility with noisy pipes, musty smells, paper thin walls, worn bath fixtures. Kinda of reminds one of the 60's and motor cycles. Which is probably why so many HD riders stay at this place. But the included breakfast is good along with comfy beds and well equiped rooms. One night is OK.

It's not a luxury, 5 start hotel, but at this price point it is a great option. The rooms are comfortable, and more importantly they are different and have character - a nice change from the cracker-box, mundane type of rooms usually seen at this level. Pet friendly (extra fee), comfortable beds, and a nice hot buffet breakfast included (with... More

This hotel was average and not what we expected. The price would indicate that it is better than average but it wasn't overly clean. When we came into the bathroom there was spider webs coming from a hole in the corner with a few spiders. The pool area was nice and the water was clean. A nice touch was that... More

This hotel cost $158 per night for one Queen bed. The rooms were spacious and had a fireplace - which is not that necessary in July. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but nothing special. They definitely need a remodel. I think they are going for cozy Victorian opulence, they have old books on shelves and a lot of wooden... More

We have stayed at this hotel 3 times now. They are dog friendly, which is very important to us. They are also convenient to the Kingston waterfront and offer an incredible breakfast buffet which is included with the room.
