“Great Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

The staff at this hotel did everything right. WiFi access in our first room was non-existent. I could have used my computer in the lobby, but the staff went out of their way to fix this. First, they reduced the price of the room; then they moved me to a room where the wifi worked. At breakfast the first day, there was no decaf coffee - it was available every morning thereafter. I really appreciated how the staff tried to accommodate our needs. Location was perfect with easy access to the downtown area. Food was good at a reasonable price - highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Kingston. The Hotel has history and character.

Room Tip: If you want wifi, stay on the second floor.

Had a good 2 night stay here mid Sept,on a road trip around lake Ontario, Rooms not massive but more than adequate, Continental Breakfast consists of toast/Tea/ Coffee ,Butter /jam/honey serve yourself,so if you are after a full English/Canadian move on.
Rooms clean and tidy slightly on the Bijou(small) side, we were in a eaves room very warm up there due to unseasonally sunny and warm weather
Had a burger off the pub menu one of the best burgers ever Chunky meat, medium rare, tasty,
with goat cheese
My wives was just as good too chicken breast deviled in a bun both burgers served with fries and salad.
One disappointment was, on the internet its billed as a craft brewers tasters pub, no craft beers were inevidence

Slightly, dissaponted

Stayed here for the Bluesfest. Great location. Decent value. Extremely tiny rooms. Our friends got a room having arranged to get a cot for one of them. When they got there the room was too small for a cot so one of them slept on the floor. Otherwise it was fine.

Historic, charming, clean, and comfortable,...and an outstanding value! The Queen's Inn is one of the oldest (built in 1830s) continuously operating hotels in Canada. The rooms are small but spotlessly clean with comfortable mattresses, HUGE t.v.s, free high speed internet service, and two lounges and a restaurant on the premises. A nice continental breakfast is served in the Copper Room daily. Fresh juices, toasting bread with a selection of spreads, and fresh-brewed regular and decaf coffee will greet you until 10 a.m. Located in the center of Kingston, Ontario, Canada, it is a perfect launching place for several international music festivals held on nearby Wolfe Island and in Kingston itself. There is a variety of site-seeing tours within steps of the hotel, convenient public parking nearby, a town square around the corner that features both produce and antique markets on the weekend, and every shop one might imagine for the retail-addicted visitor!

We chose to stay at the Queen's Inn as it was recommended by our guidebook, and since it was only for a night, we didn't want to look too much into finding Kingston's best hotel.

Our room was on the top floor. It was very small, with a slanted roof (it's a historic building), so it gave the impression that the room was pretty cramped. On the plus side, the room was clean, which is all it matters for a one-night stay. It was also surprisingly quiet. We expected that it would be noisier since our room was street-side, but not at all. It's also a 2-min walk to City Hall, which is the centre of town and the action. There is limited parking space at the back.

Overall, it was a little bit pricey for the comfort, but it was not that bad.

The staff was very helpful. We asked for questions of things to do around town, and they provided us with a brochure and even made some calls for us.

Just returned from a weekend in Kingston and a stay at the Queens Inn - great place, small rooms but staff was great, location amazing and the pub on site was a real plus ! Kingston was a great town - and there are several hotel chains to choose from but they lack the quaint character found at the Inn. Parking was a about $25.00 for Friday till Sunday, but the lot was very conveniently located right next to the inn. Some reviewers complained about the toast and coffee for breakfast - worked fine for us, white and wheat bread, juice, coffee, jam, marmalade and peanut butter. Would recommend this spot to anyone !

This is not a new property and I would guess has not changed it's overall look for some time. I booked off a discount web site and was looking for a better experience that a Howard Johnston one. As the other guests have stated, the rooms are small. Very small. Open the door and there's the foot of the bed. Squeeze by on your way to the efficiant and small washroom. And, yes, the shower is small.
Parking is listed but not always available. I think that they have 4 spaces for the whole Inn. An issue for those of us who come in by car. If however you arrived by bus or train, you would be pleased to find the Inn close to the vibrant downtown core and the waterfront..
Staff was friendly.
There are no elevators. Either travel light or start getting to the gym more often. I carried my own suitcase up a set of narrow, twisting stairs.
Breakfast was coffee and white toast with a side of The Globe and Mail or The Whig.
I found my room too warm but, in Kingston there are little flies in the Spring that you do NOT want to open a window to. Every Hotel will instruct you not to open any windows.
My stay was not unpleasant. That being said, I wouldn't revisit.
