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.

The people at the front desk were nice to deal with. When I got to my room was surprised to see s nice size room that was pretty up todate with furnishings. The bathroom looked like it was recently redone also. Parking spaces were quite large for each car. Bed was quite comfortable. The price was really good for what... More

We stopped at Kingston on the way from Montreal to Toronto. After looking around Kingston we stayed at this motel as it was on the main road back out to the 401. The rooms were OK but a little run down. We had 2 rooms and one room had more facilities than the other. It is almost as if when... More

Not a lot of water pressure in the shower if you have long hair to rinse but if you are young enough you can rinse easily under the tap. Would have liked to know where there was coffee or food as there is no mention of it in the rooms. Maybe the management could just add a printed welcome sheet... More
