“Tranquility Base”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2013

I recently retired from a business career which saw me spend countless nights on the road. In 1995, my employer selected the Best Western Plus Fireside Inn for a managers' conference. As a group, we loved everything about this hotel: the rooms, the service, the food, and the ambience of Tom's Place. Personally, I loved the rustic colonial décor so much that I returned a few months later with my wife for a getaway weekend.
Over the years, I have returned many times to the Best Western Plus Fireside Inn, for business and for pleasure and have never been disappointed with Fireside Inn. The uniqueness of this well-managed hotel make it a stand-out. The Fantasy Suites, which my wife loves, are great fun: on December 6, we stayed in the Tranquility Base Fantasy Suite. The experience of spending a night on the moon in a lunar lander with an astronaut tethered overhead is quite unique.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, but I personally prefer the rooms at the back of the building where it is qu...

My husband and I have stayed four times at the Fireside Inn and we simply love this hotel. The staff is awesome with a personal approach, the food is great, the rooms are as clean as possible and the parking is easy and free. Talking of the rooms, they are spacious and decorated with a beautiful countryside look we have never seen in a hotel. The fireplace adds a cosy atmosphere.

The say was very relaxing and hospitable. The Restaurant food was excellent as was the service that we received, best in years. The room and bed was clean and very comfortable. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed overnight before a conference at another hotel. The room was much cheaper then the other hotel and very enjoyable. The room was quaint and the fireplace was a nice touch. Not sure if it was the time of year but I did find the fireplace made the room very dry (thus made my throat hurt).

We were there for only 1 night but our stay was great. Our room was clean, staff was friendly and helpful. Check in and out was fast and friendly. Full breakfast included and and we loved the "lodge" feel. We both agreed we would stay there again for sure.

Had an excellent stay at the Best Western Plus Fireside Inn. We were upgraded to a Jacuzzi suite at not extra cost, suggested by the gentleman at the desk. The room was spacious, king bed, big tv, leather sofa, fridge, fireplace, free wireless and a lovely bathroom. Food at the restaurant was good, and all of the hotel staff were welcoming and helpful. Would stay there again for sure!

Room Tip: Corner suites are lovely.

I stayed here for two nights on a relaxed trip to visit my daughter. I cannot say enough about this hotel - in fact, I couldn't stop commenting during the entire stay whenever we would discover something new. The room was large (2 double beds), clean and comfortable. Free WIFI, fireplace, coffee maker in your room with real creamers! We had a late supper at Tom's Place and it was delicious. Food was very good, atmosphere was comfortable and relaxed and the service friendly and fast. Had a good night's sleep in comfortable beds with lots of pillows! Complimentary breakfast buffet was very nice and offered a good variety. We ended the stay with a steak dinner at Bistro Stephan. The service was fantastic and food was good, although not worth the hefty bill. I will never stay anywhere else in Kingston from now on. My only regret is that I wish I'd found this place sooner!
