The best part of this hotel is the enthusiastic and always-eager-to-help staff which outweighs the slightly dated building. I had a nice week-long stay here with my family and it was a great experience. The hotel is in Kingston downtown and accessible by transit, close to a Tim Horton's and Food Basic as well as many restaurants and bars. Thousand...

Rooms have had some upgrades. View of the Entire Harbour is amazing. Bright and spacious. We got the corner executive suite. Love the Balcony. 2nd visit same room but more up dated than 2 years ago. Perfect place to walk from. Parking included. Pool area nice. Rooms sound proof. Late check out was great. Friendly staff.

The king-sized bed was comfortable, the room had a nice couch to sit on and read and a great view of...

Great place to stay. It has a great view. The pool area is really nice. The hot tub is actually hot. The only problem in the pool area is that they put an big red emergency button right beside the button to turn on the jets for the hot tub so everyone pushes the emergency button first :).

This hotel has two great things going for it - first, it's location can't be beat, right on the waterfront in the heart of downtown next to Confederation Park. Second, it's got a great staff; prompt, courteous, welcoming. This is my second stay at this property in the last few years and while an older property, there have been recent,...

Stayed here for just one night .hotel is very well located with lovely views of the waterfront. Only 100 yards from bars , shops and restaurants. The rooms are of a good size and spotlessly clean. Breakfast not included but reasonably priced and of a good standard . Would stay here again if we returned.
