“spoilt by the outside”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good. the walkways under the balconies were filthy and unswept so that leaves, dirt and spider webs tracked into the rooms.. The porch outside the office door was propped up by a 4 X 4. The outside walls were generally unkempt and neglected

Thank you John H for your review. I am sorry about the webs, leaves and dirt. We do daily cleaning of the outside but there is a period when the leaves do build up overnight due to the property being a courtyard style we seem to get everyones leaves and so on but no excuse for anything outside the rooms and we will keep on top of it.

We stayed and the HoJo with our two little kids and the staff accommodated by placing us in a room with pull out sofa, since the beds are so high. The only problem was that the room had its windows facing the street (princess st.) and that wasn't much fun as the street is too noisy. Looking back, we probably have been better off with just the two queen beds joined together sleeping all of us in one giant bed. Next time... The staff was definitely as friendly as the other reviews say.

The location was not in the heart of Kingston, but the price reflected this. We found the service was excellent: the staff were courteous and friendly. Ther rodoms were clean and well equipped. I would recommend the hotel to friends and family.

Great staff, clean rooms, Perfectly located! The bar next door I dont reccommend, dont bother not family, couples or "girls night out" friendly. HoJo should buy it out and put there own bar/resturant there. Rooms were newly renovated and clean! Breakfast was great and VERY CLEAN!! great price too!

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!
