This motel is quite simple but is clean and had good air conditioning during this hot period. It is about 6 kms from the city center. The real difference came from the 2 managers who have really helped us in our stay and who were friendly. They made the difference !

Before I get to how the motel was inside let me first start off by saying the lady at the front desk was super nice and friendly. Now... The room- smelled gross, bugs everywhere, there was black I don't know what all in the toilet... The sheets were nasty, the "phone" in the room was for show and no where... More

The room was very comfortable and quaint. The wifi was pretty slow and did not work most of the time but you don't come to a hotel for the wifi you go to stay right? It's very close to Kingston and Fort Henry, just a few minutes drive. Would definitely recommend for anyone not willing to overpay for a hotel... More

The Kingston Motel East is located a few minutes south of the 401 on Highway 15 which is perfect for our situation. With a friendly Family style attitude towards its customers this motel was a hit with us. Clean rooms, excellent Wi-Fi Signal, soft comfortable beds who could ask for anything more.

If you are looking for a no frills lodging outside of Kingston, this is a great choice. Clean and comfortable beds. Wifi on request. Not the most modern rooms, but what you would expect for a motel. Welcoming staff and great location.

Stayed one night when the motel down the street had no rooms. It was late in the day and we were too tired to search for a better hotel. The room was clean and adequate but not worth $100 per night. The Wifi didn't work unless you where outside of the room.

The location of this motel is good, just of highway 401, but it is a little run down. We read online that a complimentary breakfast was included, but it wasn't. Our room didn't have a coffee maker, nor was there coffee available in the motel reception area. The room was clean but older and tired-looking. Pleasant staff on the desk.
