“LAURA'S REVIEW”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Hotel was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The availability of having a duvet to put on the beds was an added bonus for warmth and comfort. Breakfast was plentlyful and very good quality. Would highly recommend this hotel for all Regatta's next year in Kingston for our sailing team.

Our stay at the Kingston Howard Johnson was very good. Cozy rooms and very comfortable beds. Our only complaint for this trip was that the sheets on the beds in our first room were very obviously not cleaned. We notified the Front Desk immediately; the staff member on duty apologized and immediately found us another room. He even personally verified its state of cleanliness! We were very pleased with this level of service!

We were in Kingston for the Fall Fair. This hotel was within walking distance of the fair grounds. The rooms were nice and clean. They had obviously been updated since the last time I stayed here many years ago. They have a good variety of foods for the included breakfast...fruits, toast, cereal, yogurts, waffles, jus..ect. Staff was friendly and helpful.
This is the place to stay if you are looking for something decent at a fair price.

We just stayed in August 2012 my husband and I went to Kingston and Ottawa on our weeks holiday. The staff was great and a special Thanks to LISA our breakfast and day hostess she was eager to give us sight seeing tips. All of the staff were friendly and our room was very clean and bright. We were quite impressed. Our trip started in Burlington Ontario and we spent 6 nights. We do plan to return in the future and will stay again. Thank you again all. John and Kim

I went for a 2-day training at Kingston with a colleague and stayed and the hotel for 2 nights. The price ($89+taxes) and location (downtown) were the reasons we chose Hojo. Before we arrived, my colleague and I both stayed at Hojo previously and knew what to expect. But I have to say that we were impressed. Microwave and fridge were available in a 2-queen bedroom, wifi (stable) and parking were free, many drawers to store clothes and stuffs, room was spacious, everything was very clean, breakfast was included (very simple with tea/coffee, bread, bagel, yogurt and fruit), last but not least, my favourite part - there was an extra set of sink and faucet with mirror outside of the bathroom, we didn't have to fight in the morning in order to get into the bathroom to get ready for training! The staff of the place were very nice too. We met the manage on the first day and he welcomed us in a friendly manner. After we checked in we had trouble with the wifi so we called the front desk which was him answered the call, he then checked with us again in about 10-15 mintues later just to make sure everything was fine. The lady who was there the two days was also very friendly.

A few things that can be improved though... the AC is too old, made very loud noise when it was turned on. Also the AC is placed right next to the bed. Personally I don't like having cold air blows right to me while I am sleeping. Mirrors are placed too high up, both by the sink. sometimes there are people who are not as tall...

Overall a very pleasant stay :)

Thank you Somethingbluee for your review and taking the time to relay what you like and what we can continue to improve upon at our property. We will have new air conditioning units for next season which should run smoother/quieter and guests will be better able to direct the air flow. We are happy you enjoyed your stay.
