“Satisfactory because I was only spending the night”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

This was the cheapest hotel in Kingston which was a stop over for the night. It was satisfactory because I was only sleeping there but had I expected more I would have been disappointed. The television didn't work, could not connect to wi-fi and I had to plug in all of the lights myself. The bed frame had a metal catch that was sticking out of the frame and was not flush to the bed. It could be dangerous. They also put a fifty dollar security fee on my credit card which I have not heard of before. The woman checking in was very friendly and quite pleasant. The woman checking ougt was not so pleasant. The bed was nice and comfortable which was all that mattered to me that night. Don't know if I would stay there again.

this hotel in one word is dirty. the lights in my room didnt work, my sink was clogged up, my towels were used and my bed sheets were stained and looked more than slept in. Terrible one niight stay. I would have much rather slept in my car or spent extra to stay in a holiday inn. This hotel has no standards.

I traveled from New York with my wife and needed a place to sleep for three nights while I was visiting some family in Kingston. There are better places than this EconoLodge in Kingston, however you must pay at least double price. It is old? Yes. It is outdated as far as TV and other amenities? Yes. But if all you want is to get a good rest and will not spend much time in the room, it is the best you can get for the money. Bed was really comfortable and room was clean. Bathroom was also clean and in good condition, looked newer than the rest of the room. Also what added to the good experience was the staff that was nice and very helpful during our stay. The hotel also has FREE wifi, however is weak in the rooms (at least the room I stayed in). You have to get down into the lobby for a good connection. And I forgot to mention, as a bonus they have free parking right next to the hotel, a minor thing that often gets overlooked but can add up to the cost of your vacation/stay.In conclusion, it is a good option if you plan to visit the city a lot and not spend much time in the room. Hope this review will help.

We recently stayed here. For the price you can't beat it. Room was on the small side however bed was very comfortable, room was spotless as well as the bathroom. No lingering orders in the halls like many other places. Staff were great, will stay again!

If you are willing to overlook small blemishes (eg: stain on hallway carpet, older furniture), this hotel actually pretty decent.

The reception staff are friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast in the morning includes waffles (make your own in the waffle maker), muffins, 2 types of quaker oatmeal cereal, apples/bananas, bread/toast, jam/butter and tea/coffee/milk/orange juice. There are no coffee makers in the rooms.

My room had a fridge but no microwave, however you can use the one in the kitchen if you need to. The washroom was stocked with Shampoo/Conditioner and a Facial soap (but no Body wash/soap). The internet connection in the room was not the best, but not the worst I've seen. It works okay if you are not watching videos/downloading.

I would recommend this hotel to others!

Room Tip: Rooms in the front of the hotel are along Princess Street, which is a busy street.

Reviewed 25 April 2013

I went three times in this hotel. I find it more comfortable than the 6 motel on the boarder of the high-way. I am a businessman, when I am on the road, I need to get a good sleep to be in shape with my customers to give them the best service. Because, it is in the center of Kingston, it is more quiet during the night compare to an hotel on side of major road. I really suggested for worker on the road. The price is usually cheap.

Staff were extremely helpful, very good attitude and very friendly. Above and beyond their call of duty to help you out. I would recommend it for sure. It has a good location to the rest of Kingston and the down town core. Very quiet during the night. Don't expect decent views of the surrounding areas, but at least it is only short distances to experience a pretty scenic and beautiful Kingston.
