“Nice place for a mother-daughter weekend!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2011

The room was a good size--we liked having a cosy sitting area across from the cheery, if cheesy, electric fireplace. The bath was squeaky clean, and, although the room needed a bit of updating, the beds were very comfortable. We heard some hall noise but not enough to bother us. We had a lovely dinner in Bistro Stephan and enjoyed the cooked breakfasts which were included with our room rate. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. It was just a little too far for us to walk to the historic downtown or to Queens, but, as long as you have a car or alternate transport, this is a very nice place to stay in Kingston.

Taking a mid week break and thought we would revisit the Fireside Inn. Our dinner at Bristo Stefan was excellent along with the great service provided by Eric. Drinks before hand at Tom's Place were relaxing and enjoyable. Our room was clean and comfortable although a little too warm. Upon checking in no one explained that the wall unit was the control for the room temperature so we were a little uncomfortable. Breakfast next morning was good. What we got far exceeded some of the negative reviews we read. Would recommend a visit

It's a small hotel with cozy rooms. Both the bar and the restaurant serve good food, the rooms are clean and quiet. It's comfortable for an overnight stay. I wouldn't choose this hotel for a "getaway" or "special occasion", but it's certainly good for business accommodation.

This hotel met all my expectations to the food, rooms and service.
I stayed here on business and as soon as I opened the door to my room noticed a fire place although it was a electric one it was still cozy and had the feel of a real one. I love the beds and the rooms

Service was great, people at the front desk were very friendly although I was asked for a credit card when the rooms were already taken care of which kind of threw me off a little bit, but it was no big deal, and when i went back doen to ask why she didn't ask anyone else.. she simply replied "Well I just ddn't want to ask anyone else as I was just going to get the dame response"

there were different types and sizes of rooms, some had leather couches some had wing chairs and come had canapy beds and closets.. They were cozy roomy and very well kept. were decorated out of date but had the cottage feel to them, with book shelves with books and with a out dated wall paper.. but very clean.

This hotel you can tell was an older structure but had been re done and renoed.

very nice ..

We were pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of the room. Nice fireplace...weather to hot to use however. Good beds, very clean. free internet easy to access, coffee maker in room. On site resturant was good and service excellent. We will stay again if we are in the area.

Since I'd recently joined the points program for Best Western, when we drove into Kingston on our way down east we decided to stay at this location. Luckily they had a few vacancies has we had no reservation. Our room was nice, flat screen, fake fireplace, great water pressure. The bed was comfortable and the wifi signal was strong. There was REAL creme in the fridge for coffee in the morning. That is important, since the sign advising that is small and easy to miss. About a 10 minute drive to the downtown waterfront area, close to a Tim's and a few gas stations. Room was a bit pricey but you do get what you pay for. The air worked very well and there was an inroom safe. Pool is outdoors, but I think it's heated. Didn't use it since there was a storm that hit as soon as we returned from dinner, but the pool area was nice and the water was clear and looked clean. I didn't hear any noise from any other guests at any time.
