“A very nice stay just outside Kingston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2014

This was our first ever stay in a Canadian motel and we were pleasantly surprised. The room was very large and clean with loads of facilities: tea + coffee maker, microwave oven, tv with stallite channels and wi-fi. The bed was comfortable enough and the couple who welcomed us was very nice. Should I ever go back to the Kingston area I would stay here again.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

I had called this hotel two days before arrival and asked what their pet-policy was. I was told they were completely dog-friendly and that a $40 cash deposit was required. After room inspection at check out, that deposit would be returned.
I didn't book at the time to price out other options.
When we arrived in kingston we called again to confirm the pet-policy and rate. This time we were told by a different lady that the deposit required was $60, and that if there was hair on anything (carpet, bed, etc.), that it would be a problem and the deposit would not be returned.
I would not recommend anyone looking for pet friendly accommodations to stay here. They obviously can't keep things straight between receptionists, and how pet-friendly are they anyway if they don't accept dog hair anywhere?!
We stayed at the econo lodge in downtown kingston instead and only paid 89+10 for our dog plus had a continental breakfast and free Wifi! Look elsewhere and don't lose a deposit at lord Nelson!!

Free Wi-Fi which is unexpected. Nice welcoming couple. Clean bed and washroom. Only the towel a little yellow. Good if you bring yours. 2 queen size bed for 4 people. Has TV but only one channel. But what can you expect for $80 per night.

Stayed July 2014, traveled with family
