“Dated building, but clean, friendly and reasonably priced!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2009

We stay at the Kingston Knights Inn for 6 consecutive nights in August. While the outside is dated, they have made monumental efforts to improve the interior. We had checked out this hotel in the past and saw great improvement during this visit. They have remodeled the rooms and replaced worn out beds and furniture, The rooms are not fancy and the building is older, but our room was clean and quite comfortable. The bathrooms are small but all the fixtures work. Our room had a refrigerator and microwave, both of which worked well. The pool was clean and refreshing. We will be visiting Kingston again in December and plan to stay here again. To reiterate, it is not a fancy hotel, nor is everything brand new, but for a no frills, but reasonably priced motel, this Knights Inn fits our needs.

Sir I thank you for your visit in this area and stayed with us and give your review on TripAdvisor.
You are correct this motel was built in 60's and it's been very hard to comp-pit with newer motel.
since your last visit in 2009, we have changed our motel name to Lakeview Inn with name change
we have renovate all our rooms and up grade to provide better quality clean and comfortable rooms to all our guests. We no longer have pool, there is Mexican restaurant on premises, and
guest laundry. If you are in this area next time please check our newly renovated room.

Very disappointing, we were in town for a conference and this was the best deal. No question why. The rooms were not clean by any standards, we booked two adjoining rooms, the doors between the rooms would not open with out prying them open. One room had bees. The property was not clean, the pool was NASTY!!! The continential breakfast consisted of a banana, an apple and some kind of snack cakes, and coffee, nothing else. The rooms did not have irons or ironing boards, something that in our travel we have become used to. The TV reception was horrible and we had to stomp on the floor to clear the picture. There were no clocks in the rooms period. There were cobwebs in every corner and behind the beds. There were no sink stoppers, one shower only had one setting, and the shower in the other room would not the other room would not turn off. upon coming back to the room the first day, house keeping had been in the rooms but had put toilet paper in one of the rooms that had been wet. Would not reccommend that anyone stay here.

I live in the area and had clients who booked rooms there given its proximity to our office. One guest ended up switching rooms at Midnight due to the mold. The other's fire alarm went off all night and he got no sleep. There are far nicer motels in the area at nearly the same rate, don't stay here!

Upon booking our room in June 2005, and confirming it twice- when we arrived that nite at 9:30 Pm we were told right away that there was no room for Us!
We booked a non-smoking room with 2 double beds.
After showing our comformation number- they gave us the only room they had left.
Smoking room that smelled so bad ( we were offered an air freshner),
next to the air-conditioner was a puddle of water we stepped in - the room was filthy with cob-webs and scum in the tub!
We had a terrific thunder storm and the electic was out for 1 hour.
Do they have a generator?
Good Luck to anyone who stays there- confirming the room doesn't make
a difference.
Oh! and were was the free continental breakfast? Beats Us- didn't see it and wasn't told about it!
