I have booked into this properly several times and had fine experiences. It is clean and adequate for a 1 night stay. However, this last time I booked (online on bookings.com) and sent in a request that I did not to be on the ground floor, that request was read and ignored. Given that I have stayed there before and... More

The room was large and clean. The bed extremely luxurious - we would have liked to take it home with us. Convenient location. We were happily surprised with how nice this small motel was and highly recommend it.

We arrived an hour early and were able to check in. The room was clean and spacious! The bed was super comfortable. We were impressed with the iPod dock alarm clock and usb charging ports on the wall.

We booked 14 rooms for a minor hockey tournament. Exterior is basic but the rooms were updated and very clean. Family run and they are friendly. I'd stay there again. Great location on Kent St., the main street in Lindsay. Close to restaurants and shops.

We booked 2 rooms, 1 KING and 1 QUEEN. As a special request, I asked if we could have check-in early for at least 1 room, as I was getting married and needed 2 of us to get dressed. They were VERY ACCOMMODATING and met our request with delight. Both rooms were very clean and comfortable. Having a fridge, micro... More

The place is pretty clean. It is definitely better than Travelodge and Super 8 -- but the fact one thinks of comparing to that demonstrates what level of accommodation we are discussing. My colleague's room smelled very unpleasant, a very pervasive animal smell. When we mentioned this to the front desk, he said there was nothing he could do. So... More

My Husband and booked with the Kent Inn for our wedding weekend. We had nothing but the best experience calling, emailing and blocking off rooms for our guests and ourselves. Chris and Priti put their heart and soul into this sweet little hotel. When you first drive up you see the main house/office which can be misleading, but once you... More

Looking at the photo I expected the Kent Inn to be a small hotel. The room we stayed in was behind the main building more like the typical strip motel. Room was large and OK, it appeared to be very clean and the beds were comfortable. Towels were fair quality but very small, couldn't use them more than once. Room... More
