We arrived Kingston to discover that all hotels in Kingston were fully booked, as we headed onto motorway to find a place to stay we spotted the Motel.

Clean bathroom and comfortable bed. Carpet and furnishings are showing their age and need to be replaced. The kitchenette is ancient. Air-conditioning was loud and totally ineffective. Would not recommend.

We were pleasantly surprised with a modern room with the furniture and appliances in good condition. Nothing was old, shabby or smelly, which would be typical of an average motel. The bedding and towels were impeccably clean. We stayed overnight and felt rested and re-energized in the morning. The location is also great - 2 min off the 401.
