The hotel has some nice features. The pub is cozy and warm for those who don't mind a hunting motif.

The room was pretty ordinary. As is too common, the workmanship is low-end. Case in point: daylight is visible around the in-wall air conditioning unit. It got a little cool on that side of the room.

The refrigerator buzzes a little too loudly. The room door has large gaps around it, allowing significant hallway noise intrusion.

But it was clean, the bed was comfortable and the dual shower heads are a sweet indulgence (while nagging at my environmental conscience).

Note: the hotel has special themed rooms which we did not visit.

Room Tip: Try the themed rooms! There's a spaceship and a romantic getaway, maybe more.

Recently, we stayed at the Best Western Plus Fireside Inn for the eighth time. We never get tired of great hospitality. From check-in to check-out, everything seems to be just perfect. The bonus, of course, is the two restaurants: Tom's Place and Bistro Stefan. What more could you ask for? A decent price--you get that. Convenience--you get that, too. Lasting memories--you get that as well. We'll be back!

Room Tip: If you don't want to drag your suitcases up a long stairs, ask for a first floor room. The lack...

Stopped for a day/night in Kingston to show my husband the city (had never visited) last August. We found the room to be lovely; impeccably clean, stylish, with great beds. The service was great. Overall I would recommend visitors to stay here. J&J Bird (Gulf Islands, BC)

I stayed in Kingston for a business trip last month & stayed at the Best Western Fireside Inn.
It was a good decision.
My room had a fireplace & a great four poster bed.
The fireplace was excellent on a cold & snowy January night. The bed provided a night of peaceful sleep. Very comfortable.
The Best Western also provided a free breakfast.
I will return.

Room Tip: Get a room with a four poster bed.

First time at this hotel, the rooms are comfortable, interesting decor, beds are good, washroom was clean, nice shower head, fireplace is a nice touch but it did not give off any heat.Room could use some sound proofing, could hear doors closing and next room using washroom, but I have definitely had worse.
Front counter staff is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included in the price, made to order, was ok.

We were very disappointed that we failed to offer you the true Fireside Inn experience. Making all our guests feel like they are staying in their "home away from home" is what we are about at the Fireside Inn. Please let me know if you would like to return and I will ensure that your booking is taken care of.

Our first stay at this hotel was our first time in Kingston, back in 2002 (approx). Since then , we have been back multiple times and have always been pleased. The rooms are clean, cozy, and comfortable. Fireplace adds to the ambiance and the hot tub rooms are a nice option as well. We have never stayed in any of the "Fantasy Suites", so we can't comment on those. There are definitely cheaper places to stay in KIngston, but this is a good choice. The two on-site restaurants have different themes and menus, but both are quite good.
When we visit KIngston in summer, we tend to favor the waterfront area. In other seasons, the Best Western Fireside Inn is where you'll find us.
