Pro's: Bathroom was updated as was sink in room. Free Wifi. Free breakfast at restaurant next door. Inexpensive compared to other hotels. Con's: Our room had a very bad odor. Smelled like urine. The carpet had some ugly stains. Our room had a staircase right outside window, therefore I got woken up numerous times by other quest talking while walking...

My family stayed in the Kingston HoJo for 2 nights. The rooms are clean, and have everything you need for a short stay including a fridge, air con, microwave and coffee maker. The beds are extremely comfortable and I slept very well for the two nights. The wifi was problem-free (important for us with teens in tow) and there is...

I had a brand new room. The clean room had everything and then some. I am only sorry that I could only stay for one night. The employees are fantastic people. Free continental breakfast. I recommend this hotel to everyone. Excellent service. The price was right. No worries.

Kingston is a beautiful, vibrant & historic place which is inundated with tourists all summer. When we (8 of us!) were invited to attend a wedding there all the accommodation was very pricey. This was the only one under $100 a night & most were $200 plus. We were a bit leery but the only time to be spent there...

Although we were quite happy to use the pool, the shallow end was quite deep! So not safe for kids. There was a smell in the room as soon as we opened the door and the carpets needed to be changed or cleaned as do the comforters.

I'm glad I didn't let some of the other reviews on here put me off staying at the Howard Johnson in Kingston. Some people must be expecting 5 star quality for 2 star prices... The outside of the hotel is old looking and it was a bit tricky to see from the street on the first pass. Once we knew...

Room was clean and beds were comfortable... but pool was not opened has advertised from 8am till 9pm but maybe from 10am till 8pm. Gentleman at the reception removed the only information sheet from our room because he said the information on it was not accurate. Continental breakfast was very limited as written in other reviews, cold cereals, croissants, chocolatine,...
