“Decent Value”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Retro motel-style hotel where you drive up to your room, all of which are well-sized and renovated in 2011. The pool is fresh as in outdoor and unheated. It can be noisy eg can hear neighbour sneeze. The a/c is very loud and we had to turn it off and baked instead while sleeping.
But the staff, esp woman who works desk during the day is naturally friendly. Breakfast is plentiful and varied. Neighbourhood is outside core but working class Kingston...no safety issues.
On the whole, very good value for money....the 4 star rating is judged against it's peers in this class.

The exterior of this motel is old and in need of a face-lift. It's also situated in a very "dead" neighborhood with some questionable guests. That said, the rooms are recently updated, refrigerator, microwave in the room, good beds and bathroom. The free continental breakfast was also good (belgian waffles, cereals, yogurt, toasts, etc.) I therefore recommend if you're on a budget and aren't too scared of dark places!

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the rooms are clean with some modern touches. The staff were very nice and even let us check in a little early due to rain.
