This hotel has two great things going for it - first, it's location can't be beat, right on the waterfront in the heart of downtown next to Confederation Park. Second, it's got a great staff; prompt, courteous, welcoming. This is my second stay at this property in the last few years and while an older property, there have been recent,...

Stayed here for just one night .hotel is very well located with lovely views of the waterfront. Only 100 yards from bars , shops and restaurants. The rooms are of a good size and spotlessly clean. Breakfast not included but reasonably priced and of a good standard . Would stay here again if we returned.

Very clean hotel. Lots of parking. Quiet end of street, little traffic. Lots of restaurants nearby within walking distance. Pool warm and clean, just a bit of a walk as it is at the other end of the hotel from the rooms. View is great from the hotel and grounds. Staff are friendly. Rooms are spacious and clean.

Room was clean, bed was good. Washroom was ok - water was either a touch not hot enough or a bit too hot. Toilet had some internal issues and had to be jiggled. TV selection needs a bit more. Internet worked well. Good services. Staff was nice. Parking out front ... $17.00 a day, but on the waterfront. Will return.

This Hotel needs some serious upgrade, the rooms are small and washrooms are even smaller, bathtub does not drain properly, carpet needs to be changed, the gym is just few machines thrown in one corner of the pool area. Its a disgrace that despite located at a prime location this hotel is in shambles. No complimentary breakfast and outdoor winter...

This hotel is a great location (downtown and close to so many pubs and restaurants), the rooms are clean, the beds very comfortable. Rooms have a fridge which is great, the bathrooms are clean but a bit tired, they could use a remodeling. The parking is a bit steep for Kingston. I do love this hotel, staff are always helpful....

This hotel is our go to spot in Kingston. Can't beat the location. Easy to get to and lots of parking available. While we've never eaten at the on site restaurant, there are always people there... We like to wander around downtown to find something to eat. Rooms are always clean and the staff is always helpful.
