Stayed at this hotel, it’s a nice older hotel. Don’t let the long hallways scare you off, the rooms are very nice. The staff is polite and the entire hotel is very clean. My only issue is no free coffee in the lobby at checkout. But that’s hardly something to ruin a stay over. Good deal on price and next to the expressway

I stayed for several days and couldn't have been happier. The rooms were very clean, quiet and the bed was amazingly comfortable. But what really stood out for me was the staff. They went above and beyond to help me get a package shipped without me even asking. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Very friendly front desk personnel. Our room was perfect (loved our king size bed) and their grounds & gardens were beautiful. The price was reasonable for the room, but if you want coffee and a muffin for breakfast you have to pay for it. Even though, I would stay there again!

The balcony was awesome.. but no smoking on it.. which was a bummer! It was good for what you paid nothing that made it extra special. Due to covid no breakfast you can only pay extra for breakfast treats. No coffee bar set up.. only one cup serve in your room...

Kimberly, Thank you for your kind words. We are sorry for your disappointment that we cannot allow smoking on our balconies or near entrances. We are happy that you were pleased with the rest of the room. Unfortunately we aren't able to have our restaurant open for a full breakfast and currently we just have coffee and few to-go breakfast items in the lobby area. We are always happy to give extra coffee packets for the coffee maker in the room. We appreciate your feedback as we learn to navigate through this pandemic. Thank you for staying at the Kensington Hotel! Best Regards, Karen Assistant Front Office Manager
