“Great romantic getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

This was a great hotel. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a whirlpool suite. The room was large with a sitting area complete with couch and electric fireplace. The bathroom was between the sitting room and bedroom so that it feels like 3 separate rooms. The corner shower was quite large. Finally the king size canopy bed was comfortable and a real treat. The decore did seem a little dated and the bathroom fan only seemed to work on the timer and was not very good. But these were minor detail.
We thought the breakfast was fine, a wide variety of choices.
Overall it was a great romantic getaway and would reccomend it others.

Well it's blah that's all I can say. Yes pets are allowed but there is a fee plus you have to sign your pets life away they can't sit anywhere in the room and also when they have to "go" outside well they suggest you do not let your pet go on there property but they give you poop bags thow! Lol oh man and you have to go in the pet hallway no big deal but it just makes you feel like your in a different class like the bottom for having a pet. As well the second crap thing as soon as you go to front desk to get a room the asst manager talk to us like we were crap not welcoming like we were taking up his time. He really should go through retraining for customer service because of they we he had handled our visit more then likely will not be back. Clean yes, breakfast no big frills it's a continential breakfast with heated sramble eggs.

Super service and extremely courteous staff. Super dining. Great location for access to Kingston area tourist sites and attractions.
Although not a large pool it is clean and meets ones needs on a hot day. Although rated as a three star hotel I would give it a four.

We had to attend a weeding and stayed at the Best Western for one night and breakfast was included. The accomodations were very nice and no complaints about that at all. Personel was very friendly.
However breakfast was not to write home about it.....

Room Tip: Second floor !!! Not on ground floor.

The service was terrible, the attendants at the counter treated you like you were an inconvenience and stupid. They do the opposite of what they say on their website. It should say” Our guest comfort and satisfaction is our least priority”. We will not be returning to a Worst Western hotel again.

If you are looking for a romantic hideaway hotel with charm and a wonderful restaurant for lovely dinners (romatic and excellent food) this is the place to stop at. It was an oasis on our holiday for a peacful LARGE room with sitting area and charm. Great attention to details and decorations, and excellent gentle products - soap and hair. Restaurant was amazing for supper, you could pick a quiet romantic setting (even a couch with coffee table and TV) and service was prompt and VERY friendly. Food is divine, ate there 2 nights and portions are large and food is delicious. Their Silver Cloud special drink is perfect too! Hubby had choice of great beers. Breakfasts included in price and they are buffet style - fruit, juice, scrambled eggs, southern fried potatoes. Staff is very attentive and even in buffet setting they will wait and serve you and make you personal waffles! Highly recommend this stop over on way to Montreal, etc..

Room Tip: Parking easy, and no worries, you can pull in and out and spaces are large.

The hotel is older but the rooms have been redone. rooms have fireplaces and a sitting area.. Bathroom is very nice and looked very new. Shower has a double shower head which was very nice. Beds are very comfortable.Staff are all friendly including those at the desk and the housekeepers. A huge plus of this place is that there are two restaurants located in the hotel - both of which are very good. Would not hestitate to stay there again. rooms are very clean - I even saw a housekeeper on her hands and knees cleaning the bathroom floors. this place does allow dogs.
