After staying at the Best Western Fireside Inn, and then reading the reviews on this site... I felt I had to contribute my own experience. Perhaps they've really imrpoved since my stay in February, or maybe these people just had more luck than I!

The service was horrible, the Front Desk clerk didn't say welcome, thank-you, enjoy your stay, ask me how I was doing. The interaction was quick and easy, something I really didn't enjoy. I arrived in my room to find it had a huge stain on the carpet, and it was fresh and wet. I never actually found out what it was, but it smelt quite odd. I can't figure out how housekeeping missed it.

I got my room moved to another which must have been their last sell room, it seemed like the utility closet. Rather than bother the Front Desk more as to that point it hadn't improved the situation, I stayed the night and checked out the next morning.

Avoid the Best Western in Kingston, it is a typical BW. Dingy, worn-out and substandard.

This hotel has the greatest suites I've ever seen. We travel a lot and we like to stay in nicer rooms & suites. The Fireside Inn has what they call Fantasy Suites. We slept in a real lunar lander. The room was huge and the Jacuzzi was in a moon crater. We could not have asked for anything because the room had every amenity. We had a peek at the standard rooms on the way out. They are fantastic. Working fireplaces. Hand made furniture and beautiful quilts on every bed. This hotel gives you a reason to visit Kingston. We’ll go back just to get away & stay at this hotel. If I could give more then 5 stars I would.

This is easily the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in. More luxurious that our stay in Toronto. Don't waste your time at any other hotels in Kingston.

We had a one night stopover at the Fireside Inn at the end of August and enjoyed our stay. We were on our honeymoon and the hotel very kindly upgraded us to what I think is the biggest hotel room I have stayed in! They also gave us champagne to celebrate with. The room was decorated in a country style, had a gym size jacuzzi in the lounge(!), the bed was very comfortable and the room very quiet. All staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The only down side for me was that the decor in the hotel could do with a little touching up in places and our room was a little dark. However the staff and service more than made up for these small issues and we were very pleased with our choice. I would recomend a stay here & if we return to Kingston would return to the Fireside Inn.

This hotel is stunning on the outside and even better on the inside.
I’ve stayed in many Best Westerns' mostly in the US and I have to say this is the nicest one anywhere. My room had a fireplace, a love seat and the bed looked like a hand made four poster bed with canopy.
Amenities and services comparable to any 4-5 star hotel and the restaurant is as good as any I've ever been to.
Don’t give it a second thought. You won’t regret this decision. This was the best hotel of our entire vacation.
