“Not overly impressive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Was not the easiest place to find from downtown Kingston but good from Hwy 401. There was nothing bad about the place and nothing inspirational about it, just blah. The carpets could have been cleaner, very small bathroom, good size main room. There is no breakfast (just a coffee machine in lobby) and no lounge or restaurant It is my experience that it is overpriced for what it offers.

Dear brokenjumper,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review of our property! We are extremely proud of our new modern carpet free phoenix design rooms. As you may be aware we are currently replacing the carpet in our hallways and look forward to your return so you can see us when we are not in the middle of a renovation!

One of the new model Motel 6 styles. Bare bones plain, but complete with microwave, fridge, and built in flat screen TV. Spartan design, with vinyl fake wood floors make the room much easier to clean, and it shows-spotless throughout. . The windows are thick enough to block most of the highway noise (we were in a highway-facing room) but obviously the rooms facing away are quieter. Motel is 5 minutes away from shopping mall and big box stores, and 10 minutes in traffic from downtown

Room Tip: Away from highway is quieter

We stayed overnight in Kingston and booked the Motel 6.

As stated in other reviews the rooms are small like a dorm room but they are very clean and comfortable for a nights stay. They are in excellent condition and the bathroom has a nice tub with great lighting and granite countertop with nice sink and exhaust fan.

There is no carpet in the room and it has a fridge and microwave with a wall mounted tv with a desk and lots of outlets for you electronics.

Free coffee in the lobby for morning with granola bars. $79. + tax for new clean and comfortable room is ok for a night for me

Room Tip: top floor was quiet

I don't normally stay at Motel 6 but this was close to where we needed to visit in kingston. If staying in a dorm room or cheap YMCA or a work camp trailer is you thing, then stay at this motel 6. The rooms are beyond cheap no dressers,no pictures,no coffee unless you want to pay for a cup in the lobby,but they do have free coffee in the morning this must really break the bank for motel 6, no breakfast, very limited larger vehicle parking, beyond spartan even the little desk with two wooden chairs and no seat padding are so cheap it like a elementary school class chair or kids chair at a day care.
I booked this Motel 6 also for the advertised RV and truck parking as I had a trailer with me, well after checking out the limited parking.
I asked at the front desk where the truck and RV parking was,and the front desk girl who must have been new, called a manager who told her to tell me to park my car trailer over at the truck stop 2 blocks away as that was where the truck and RV parking was.???? come on Motel 6 are you kidding me!!!!!! That's like saying we offer a breakfast on the motel 6 website but its over at the comfort inn 2 blocks away.
The big saving of maybe $10.00 a night over other motels in kingston, it is not worth staying at this Motel 6 or most Motel 6 We wont be back ever!!!!. The room rate to draw you in is for only 1 person so if you're a couple add another 10.00 a night. To bad you cant give negative stars all this for almost a 100.00$ it's funny you don't have to plug quarters in a machine to take a shower at this motel 6 or a loonie timer on the TV, like I said will never come back to a so called modern Motel 6 or any other which use the term modern.

Room Tip: go some where else

Dear Greyhoundlover,

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review. As I have said before we are very proud of the new Phoenix style Motel 6 Kingston, but do realize it is not for everyone but thank you for giving us a try. We would always prefer our guests to park in our lot and not down the street; to that end it would be great if you could contact me to share your story so I can look into this personally. Thank you again for staying with Motel 6 Kingston.

We recently stayed here for one night, and were very pleased with the experience. The property is in a great location - close to the 401, and still not very far from any place in Kingston. We requested a room on the upper level, facing south, since wanted to ensure we had a quiet room. The rooms are very simple, but modern, and the beds were quite comfortable. There is also a fridge and microwave in each room. For the money we paid, and comparing the cost to other hotels in Kingston, this is definitely a great value property. Would definitely recommend to those looking for great value accommodation in that area.

Room Tip: Inquire to see if south-facing room is available, if traffic noise from the 401 may be an issue for...

Very clean, newer hotel locate on the 401. Wished they had a better breakfast than the one included, which was a granola bar!!! Not crazy about the artsy new deco theme (sorry, I don't know what to call it).

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the highway, views and sounds are bad.

We arrived at midnight and found the staff very helpful at check-in. The rooms were good size and clean although sparsely furnished. The mattress was comfortable but our room was facing Hwy 401 and the traffic noise could be heard all night long. As we stayed for 2 nights we asked for another room in the morning and got it immediately. Again the staff at day time was very friendly too. No breakfast is offered just coffee and granola bars.
The location is ok for visiting the 1000 islands and we would stay in this motel again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not facing the highway.
