The room was noisy - could hear ringing bell of clock tower - 12 bells for midnight ..and doors slamming in hallways. Overnight parking was $22.oo but lots of spaces available. Room -Good,but nothing special.

Nice hotel close to the downtown of Kingston

Pros: Price, Location, Free WIFI
Cons: No free parking.
Location: lots of shops nearby, and restaurants.
We arrived a bit late for check in. Hotel staff was very friendly and we found the room clean and with a view of the river. Breakfast was not included but for the price of around 15$ including tax, you get a nice continental breakfast. Would definitely come back for the price and location.

Disappointed

For close to $* I expect a decent view, a clean room, a quiet air conditioner. This room was dingey, small, and the AC sounded like a train the whole night. View of the lake was obstructed. We cut our stay there and left after one night. This hotel was worth perhaps $100 nightly.

Great Hotel, Great Staff and Great Location

I have read the other reviews about this hotel and can't believe that they stayed at the same hotel as I did. I had a beautiful room overlooking the water. The lounge had a huge patio on the waterfront and the staff were very friendly and fun. I travel ALOT for business and I would definitely stay there again and again.
