“Friendly staff, nice pool and waterslide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stayed here overnight while in Kingston for hockey. It is an easy trip to the Invista Rink.
Check-in was quick, and we were very happy to find our room was available before the stated check-in time of 4pm.
It's a short drive to downtown, not much in the area right around the hotel. Also there are train tracks that run right by the hotel, but I only heard the whistle once while we were there. I didn't notice it through out the night, and I am usually a light sleeper.
The pool area and waterslide are great.

Rooms and hotel are about a 3 star but they do have a nice pool, water-slide, sauna and hot tub area which attracts many young families for a weekend away. We have stayed here at least three times on business over a Saturday and Sunday night and the place is always crawling with young families who really seem to be enjoying it. The restaurant in the front of the hotel is about a 4 star and features a wonderful buffet breakfast on weekends including a made to order omelette station. The Monday morning menu was also very good minus he buffet. If you have a young family and are looking for a reasonably priced weekend away where the kids can have some fun this might be it!

Room Tip: Unfortunately there is a train that goes through a couple of times between midnight and dawn and wok...

This Resort has very fine accommodations and friendly and helpful staff.
My room was very comfy and the restaurant ( piano bar) was very appreciated. The food is very good and the ambiance very relaxing and pleasant. Being a member of CAA gave me a good reduction also. I will return when I am in Kingston, ON

Stayed overnight here so family could enjoy the pool and water park. Check-in was quick and seamless. Pool area was nice and clean with two lifeguards. Kids play areas was great. Unfortunately, it was the last day of summer hours so we didn't get much time in the pool. Room was basic but clean. Overall was good value for price.

I checked in to this hotel late one August night and was looking for a wheelchair accessible room with two beds and a roll-in shower. Luckily, after checking many other local hotels, this place had a room with that description.

The front desk staff was very friendly and booked us in.

The hotel is decorated modestly, and entering our room it was noticeably small for a wheelchair accessible room. The two beds took up most of the room and there was one location to turn a wheelchair around. It was inconvenient. The bathroom however was fine, with a normal sized roll-in shower. The entrance to the shower however had a substantial lip of three or so inches. A very difficult slope to navigate, and somewhat dangerous.

The beds were comfortable and the room was clean.

The quality of stay was average. We didn't use the extensive amenities, so I have no comment on them, but I understand they are great.

If staying in Kingston again, I would consider staying at the Ambassador Hotel again, but only if there were a larger wheelchair accessible room available.

Stayed here on route to Quebec for summer vacation. The check in was smooth and the rooms were clean and large. This was nothing fancy, and mostly suitable for families as the waterpark would have been good for kids. The hotel was close to the highway and we paid $100 including tax for the room. Recommend going to the Kingston Brew Pub for the evening.
