convenient, clean and comfortable

NIce room and excellent staff. A great place to sleep but not much more. Breakfast was bread/cereal/or make your own waffle- no fruit or protein.

great staff, good room

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
The staff was very helpful, holding a key for my girlfriend, supplying plastic cutlery, and leaving the breakfast open, as well as turning on a few machines for an afternoon coffee. The room was clean, but a bit cold. The bed was comfortable, although the TV could have been better. For one night, I was very happy to stay. There was a large family next to me who were extremely loud all night. I could hear them well into my sleep (or what would have been sleep).

It was adequate for a night of sleep and clean. The pool area was locked so we couldn’t use it.

Friendly hotel in Downtown Kingston

This is a nice average hotel. The room was clean and simple, perfect for a single night stay. We arrived having paid online in full, only to find that they wouldn't accept my credit card for the deposit. However the girl at the front desk was phenomenal and let us into our room while we called a family member to use their card. Very friendly and accommodating. Don't be fooled by the exterior of this hotel, if you're looking for an inexpensive and simple hotel, look no further.

Great room for the price very friendly staff.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Stayed one night passing through Kingston. From the outside I was a little worried. But inside the rooms were very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful, from the front desk to the bartender. Bar was very nice with lots to do. Would stay again if ever in the area.

Adequate motel a few minutes out of downtown

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
This is an old-fashioned motel with a door to the outside. Not in the best part of Kingston, but not the worst either. Nicely shielded from the road.

An overpriced dump

I am not the type to complain, and am not picky nor grossed out easily. This is one of those rare cases where I was digusted, and quite upset.\n\nWe paid $130 dollars for a one night stay in a non-smoking room (but were placed NEXT to a SMOKING room).\n\nOur room also featured:\n\n- heavily stained carpet\n- stained bed sheets \n- sheets with cigarette burns in them\n\nWhen we asked for new sheets, the front desk assured us we were given clean sheets, but would "look into it'. They never did.\n\nThere is also a sports bar attached and it was very loud with yelling, and cursing most of the night. \n\nNever stay here, EVER.

Had my family all stay at this motel because it is walking distance to Queens and was less than half what the Hotels downtown wanted. We had no problem with the motel...needs work but they seem to be doing something about it.....not talking about it...
