We stayed here for Saturday night of homecoming. Our goal was really just to find an affordable (not the 300$ everyone else was charging homecoming weekend) place to lay our heads within walking distance of Queen's and downtown. I have previously tried the Super 8 and quickly decided to try anything else. We got the Econo Lodge for about the same price, but the quality was worlds above.
Lots of free parking on weekends (although I understand there may be less on week days). Hotel room was a decent size and nicely appointed. Only 3 pillows for a King sized bed, but the bed was comfy if not amazing and everything was nice and clean. Carpets were fresh and bathroom was well scrubbed. Towels were a little small but clean. Overall it was a solid 3 star hotel. Everything worked well (tv, wifi etc) and staff were very friendly. There was also a desk and very comfy chair to sit on.
The hotel is a 20-25 minute walk down to the waterfront/ core of downtown, but it's a pleasant stroll or cheap cab ride. There is also a Tim Hortons, LCBO and Giant Tiger very close by.
This is definitely the best deal of the "downtown" Kingston hotels. You will likely pay at least twice the price to find anything better outside of the B&Bs.
We didn't try the breakfast.
