Stayed at the Best Western for a romantic weekend in the Tranquility Base Suite. I wasn't sure what to expect really as some of the pictures made the room out to be a little bit dated. I was pleasantly surprised - it is a bit dated, but I think it's part of the charm of the room. I love all...

This place would be better suited in Northern Ontario. Tom's place lounge is french provinical chairs with tables, moose heads, fish and deer on the walls. Definitely not what I want to see. The service was good (not perfect) and the food was excellent. I just was not into the cozy animal heads decor. We were there on a Sunday...

When in Kingston Ontario would be the hotel of choice. Certainly would stay there again and recommend this hotel. High quality dining with good food pleasantly served with helpful and knowledgeable staff. Breakfast could use a little improvement.

It was such a lovely please to stay, the people are very friendly and the atmosphere it just so relaxed. The food was pretty good and well portioned. The rooms were quite spacious but still homely. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes traditional yet modern spaces.

We chose this property for one night because it was near to a friend we were coming to visit and the price was okay. We were very impressed by many details in the room such as the nightlight showing the way to the bathroom, the fireplace, the heating controls, rustic decor (a bit staged, but I like it better than...

We spent 1 night at this hotel on the outskirts of Kingston, Ontario, breaking up the long journey from Montreal to Niagara. It was easy to find, in a good location, car parking on site. Check in was easy & our room was nice. Was a large room with hairdryer, complimentary toiletries, a fireplace and a fridge. We had our...

Spacious, clean, well-decorated rooms. Full and free breakfast, with lots of options for vegetarians. Free parking, late check-out. Attention to detail and nice decorative touches with a rustic feeling throughout. WiFi works beautifully. Close to downtown and all conveniences. And very reasonable prices (we got special Christmas rates). Would definitely stay here again when in Kingston. Highly recommended.

Happy Christmas to all. Enjoyed our suite. Surprised and happy by the free champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Thank you for the free wraps and veggie/dip served in the lounge as the restaurants were not open over the holiday. Would definitely visit again.

Returned to Kingston for a short visit after 35 yrs. The Fireside Inn has not lost its panache. The room was magnificent with a 4-poster king-size bed and a fireplace in the corner. Breakfast was excellent with eggs, sausage, pancakes and home-fries. Add to that waffles, toastables, fresh fruit and yogurt, a great feast included with the room. No cellophane...
