“Not as bad as some people seem to think”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Granted there were a couple of small stains on the seats of two of the chairs, but everything else was clean if somewhat dated. The room could have used some air freshener, but the bed was comfortable and the included hot breakfast was very good. The bathroom needed a little bit of repair to the caulking around the bathtub. Another problem was a lack of accessible electrical outlets - had to move the coffee maker into the bathroom to make coffee because all the other plugs were inaccessible or being used for lamps and other necessities. Front desk people were friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Get away from the street if you can.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This is the worst Comfort Inn we have stayed at in a long time. The place is very dingy and run down. They have started remodeling the first floor so I think you can only get second floor rooms. No elevator either. The lamps in the room all had a good layer of old dust and most things looked fairly worn. There was rust in the sink but the bathroom was otherwise clean and in reasonable condition. Small thing, but the nightlight didn't work. The bed was clean and comfortable but the room smelled musty and I am pretty sure it had been a smoking room even though we requested non-smoking. A sign in the lobby says they are a total non-smoking motel as of May 25 but that doesn't make the smell go away.
The Wi-Fi seemed to work fine.
Noticed after we checked in that it was only 6000 rewards points to stay there. That's about right and means the room rate should be no more than $70 but they still charge $100+.
Breakfast was typical and there was plenty of space to sit and eat.

I see another reviewer says it is newly renovated but they must have been thinking of the similar Comfort Inn in Parry Sound which is pretty much a twin of the Kingston Comfort Inn that has been really nicely remodeled. I hope they can do the same for this place but it will take a lot of $$$ and effort after letting it go so far down.

The staff make this hotel great, they should be commended! No this is not a super clean place. No, it is not luxurious. Yes, it is under renovation. Yes, it provides a decent bed, free parking, free internet and free hot breakfast for a very good price. They provide all the amenities you need to be comfortable. The shower was excellent! Hot breakfast Sunday morning was cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit, eggs, sausages, toast, bagels, english muffins, danishes, muffins, homemade waffles, hot coffee or tea, orange and apple juice. I would stay again.

Stayed overnight for business and it was just ok.....Room was okay, but I was on the main floor and called the frond desk because there were 3 pick-up trucks parked in front of my room and the young men kept going in and out of their trucks throughout the night. Apparently, they wanted smoking rooms and there weren't any left so they were constantly chain smoking in thier trucks in the parking lot. I also found a dead bug wrapped in the floor mat for the shower which wasn't super pleasant. Lisa at the front desk was fantastic and very friendly.

My father has been very ill and in Kingston General hospital for the past few weeks.

Two of my uncles and aunts travelled from southwestern Ontario this week to visit him. Since the drive is over four hours each way and they wanted to visit more than once, they asked a staff member at the hospital to recommend accomodations.

They were told that the Comfort Inn on Princess St. was offering a special discount to patients` family members during the holidays (Dec. 24th to Jan.2). We have had `compassionate`rates at other hôtels before but usually that meant that you would only pay $105 per night rather than their regular rates.

The Comfort Inn offered them accomodations for FREE. Absolutely no cost during a time of year that most hôtels charge their `high season` rates. But more than a warm, clean bed to sleep in, the staff at the Comfort Inn offered them compassion, a warm cup of coffee when they arrived and kind words.

It is with heartfelt gratitude that I thank them for their kindness and generosity. I know it meant a lot to my Dad to see his brother and sister and their partners. And it meant a lot to all of us that the Comfort Inn made things a little easier this week.

Our sincere thanks to all.

I've stayed at literally dozens of Comfort Inn's across North America and this ranked as one of my worst experiences (only the one in Dover, Delaware was worse!). From the smelly man who checked us in (he chain smoked outside the front entrance), to the filthy hallways and oddly odored room the motel just didn't. The motel also seemed to be home to somewhat permanent residents, several of whom were barbecuing outside their rooms.

There is little good to say about this property. You certainly can do better in the area.

We stayed in this hotel for one night as part of a fly drive tour of Eastern Canada. It was located on the outskirts of Kingston. We did not choose this hotel as it was part of the package. The hotel was ok with one night but was not spotless with burns on the duvet cover and smell of cigarettes in the room despite being non-smoking. A basic breakfast was included which was a plus.
