I came with my girlfriend to Kingston to see the 1000 Islands and stayed at The Executive. It's a family owned business that is a little outside of the main city and right next to CFB Kingston (the military base).
I will comment on the location based on categories.
This place is amazing! Having lived in Toronto for the longest time, around traffic and noice, this place was peaceful and quiet yet not far from the main city. There is a lot of green surrounding the property, lots of space for parking and great landscaping. The motel is close to Fort Henry, CFB Kingston, 1000 Island Cruises, and downtown Kingston.
We stayed in the first weekend of June and the price was reasonable compared to the other major hotels in Kingston's downtown. What you were paying was for everything and no other extra costs (internet, parking, etc). The room was a lot bigger than we expected. We have had bad experiences with independant hotels so we had asked to see the room first. It was WAY better than expected. The room was very clean, carpet and furniture looked new and it even had a microwave, coffee maker and fridge.
When asking the staff to see the room before we booked it, they were very pleasant and polite about it. They were nice enough to even ask us if we were CAA members for an additional discount (otherwise would have forgotten to mention). Very polite staff who was also very talkative; gave the experience a personal touch. The staff was also very knowledgable about the city. They provided us with all the information about the 1000 Island Cruises, which ones to go to and also about which restaurants were worth checking out.
The hotel did have FREE high speed internet, both wifi and a port (plug in) and free parking. That was refreshing. For June and an independent motel, there was also free breakfast. Firstly, we didn't even expect it to have one and we were quite content with what they provided (coffee, tea, juice, muffins, english muffins, bagles, toast).
All in all, my girlfriend and I had a great trip in Kingston and loved this hotel. We would definitely recommend our family and friends to stay here.
