The hotel was in a great location the staff were friendly and the room was clean. Great to have a mini fridge. The bathroom was nice but the rooms are very dark and the bed was caved in the middle.

Reviewed September 12, 2016

I had a brand new room. The clean room had everything and then some. I am only sorry that I could only stay for one night. The employees are fantastic people. Free continental breakfast. I recommend this hotel to everyone. Excellent service. The price was right. No worries.

I went to college in Kingston at Queen's, back in the 1970s, and 80s, when, well, the community was pretty rugged. Thus, this hotel is a pleasant surprise. It was around back then, but I never got to stay there. On a recent business visit, I did and was pleasantly surprised by the service.

the room was cold and there were no duvet covers or blankets on the bed. Only a thin bedsheet to cover with was not enough to keep you warm in March. I reached the room late at night and as I settled in i kept waking up being cold. Also the headboard of the bed was loose and kept banging...

We were happy with the room. It is simple and clean. The bed is comfortable. The fridge was noisy, and if it would have been cold there seemed to only be a space heater for heat in the room. Otherwise we would recommend this motel for an overnight in Kingston.

Much better than anticipated. In a rather seedy area, but conveniently situated on bus routes to centre and VIA station. Surprisingly quiet despite being located on a busy road to the centre. Larger room than expected with microwave, fridge, kettle, modern television and effective wi-fi. Well-appointed bathroom with the benefit of a vanitory unit outside it - very convenient for...

Dated bedding and furnishings, however the bed was comfortable. No complaints about the cleanliness of our room. TV is small, looks out of place and is swallowed up by the wall. The included breakfast at Don Cherry's was pitiful. Stale croissants, muffins, cereal and coffee. No fresh fruit or juices. Only ate there one morning, couldn't be bothered the next....
