Arrived late but still had friendly service although took a lot of persuasion to accept the voucher that we had received in the tourist information centre to give us reduction in the nightly rate.. The room was clean. Breakfast was very basic - the minimum that they could give.

This hotel was nice and clean when I stayed there. Although the exterior of the building resembles a motor inn, the interior of the rooms have all been upgraded and have very comfortable beds. I stayed here in November and found the room to be a bit hot, I mentioned this to reception and they were able to come up... More

To be fair to this hotel, they had no choice to do renovations. There was a large fire across the street which spread to a few other building. This being one. Part of the hotel is torn down . Not sure what the plans are. NOTE I did not stay at this place, i live in Kingston

I booked this hotel with hotels.com 2 weeks in advance. They took a payment from my credit card and sent reservation confirmation over email. What a surprise to come to a place an see that place is closed/fenced for renovation (going for a few months as of Mar 2nd 2014). Really disappointed as I came with my family late in... More

When we arrived, we were surprised that this property was more of a motor inn than a hotel. However, once inside the room we found excellent value for what we paid. These rooms have been newly appointed, the large queen beds were very comfortable and an extra comfortable for each bed was easily found. There are two sinks, one inside... More

Staff was very helpful. Was driving U-Haul and was given help parking (not easy on a cold winter's night!). Room was clean. However, location was not easy to find for me (as I said was driving at night), and other guests made noisy arrivals in the middle of the night.Overall, though, for the money a good place to stay.

Beds were so comfortable and the shower fixtures like brand new and the food we were so pleased at the variety that anyone should find something to eat for breakfast. Often fruit is missing from breakfast menus but this time we had 2 types of fruit plus yogurt too.

I was not expecting such a gross and unhygienic room from a HoJo. The sheets had yellow stains on them, our carpet had not been vaccuumed and we found little "blue pills" under a chair. The toilet ran all night long, and when my friend went to take a shower, she couldn't turn the water off, the handle just kept... More

Room was clean, quiet and comfortable, and convneitnly situated in Kingston. One of the desk chairs had very loose legs. I would stay here again.
