“Very clean and comfortable and good value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

Visited riends in Kingston and stayed for 2 nights. Easy hotel to find and easy access to many activities in the city. Delighted by the good variety of breakfast options. Big, clean rooms. The bed was really comfortable and the room was quiet. It was a great treat to have a pool and hot tub. I would definitely stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend. Good value for money

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We got a dealfind and thank goodness we did. The hotel is very run down. Almost twisted my ankle on the ramp that isn't marked in the parking lot. We had no amenities in the room. So bring soap, shampoo etc. We had holes in the bathtub, which was right at torso level, very creepy. Bed was uncomfortable. Walls are paper thin. Room needs a facelift. Everything just looks dirty. Waited 5-10 min while the front desk girl finished up making her personal appointments on the phone. Didn't dare go in the pool or taste the food. Didn't want to take any chances. The location is excellent, but I would recommend going to the Holiday Inn express or the Marriott, which are all in that area.

Room Tip: Only stay if you get a cheap rate and stay at the hotel briefly.

Stayed at this hotel through Dealfind. Very glad we didn't pay full price as hotel is quite run down and needs a major revamp. Front desk staff were very pleasant and professional. Rooms need shelf to hold microwave. Microwave in our room was balanced on top of a small fridge and balancing on top of the microwave was the ice tray. Very hokey! Pillows were really poor quality and uncomfortable. Bed linen definitely needs upgrading. There was a sign in the bathroom saying that if anyone "took" home one of their soft, fluffy towels they would be charged $10. What soft and fluffy towels?? Maybe at one time they were nice towels, but that must have been many years ago. No shampoo or body lotion. Soap in the bathroom was in a container on the wall - again, really hokey and cheap. Didn't bother to stay around for breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for room without connecting door

Staff were excellent...glad that stayed through Deal find...regular rates are a bit pricey for a hotel that is quite run down. Cracks in bathroom floor (around toilet), stains on ceiling, stains on carpet, stained towels(use more bleach)
Breakfast was average for a continental
Beds were comfortable
Staff did provide an air purifier/deodarizer upon request
Pool and hot tub were clean and nice and warm, lots of towels in pool area
Glad I read other reviews so that I brought my own shampoo and body wash
Some new flooring and a paint job to ceilings and floor would do this property well.

What a wonderful experience we had staying at the First Canada Inns in Kingston. We were a large group of ladies staying in Kingston and all the staff were so accommodating to us all. The Front Desk Staff were absolutely accommodating and friendly. The housekeeping staff was quick with clean towels and extra coffee. The prices were so reasonable, almost half what the bigger hotels downtown were charging, the continental breakfast (some of the bigger hotels don't provide a breakfast) was very generous. The rooms were large and clean, the pool area was clean and supplied with towels, and supplied our large group with a Hospitality room for meetings. Best of all was the price, close to all the amenities and restaurants, outlet mall for shopping and right off the 401. I don't see how anyone could complain about this hotel. Thanks to First Canada Inns-Kingston!

My stay at First Canadian place was good; very impress with the location, just off the 401hwy. Surrounded by many places to eat, grocery, drug store etc. It is about 20mins from downtown Kingston. Lots of parking and checking was smooth. Reception was very helpful attended our need immediately. The room including the bathroom was clean and welcoming. The room had a working microwave and fridge. Swimming pool and hot tub was a welcoming comfort after a cold and windy walk downtown. The bed was comfortable, sheets were clean. My only problem, other guests were very loud in the corridor and I think the two guests on either side of my room needed hearing aid to hear their TV. Otherwise my one night stay was good. Will stay again.

Room Tip: Staying on the 1st floor with a patio, was great, it was easy to take your baggage in and out.

The hotel was conveniently located near the 401. The rooms were ok, clean but in need of updating. Although it was smoke-free you could see where there were cigarette burns on the bathroom sink. There was no hairdryer, the towels were thin etc. The service was very good, the staff were helpful and pleasant. The pool and hot tub were small but clean and usable. I didn't take advantage of the "breakfast included" - it was all toaster stuff and canned fruit. All-in-all an ok place for a night.
