Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 August 2013

This motel is clean, well kept, room rate was 129.00 which was okay for 2 queen beds. Has a pool and well kept lawns.
Motel is top rated on Tripadvisor which got me interested.
Service was great, no problem at all. I think if you want a motel or are visiting a son/daughter at Queen's University this is good.
Visiting Kingston my thought might be for value of hotel blended with location. Green Acre is a bit outside the main area. I think the Holiday Inn or others located on water front have a big advantage, if room rate for them is 175 or 225 I would think that could be a better deal. For a motel there is nothing negative to say, if you are visiting Kingston and want a convenient location too it might be worth comparing hotels right on the waterfront which is also adjacent to the restaurants and markets. Princess Street, the end NEAR the water is great.
I have had a hard time deciding what to write, location and price I would have to lean towards downtown. Downtown Kingston has a lot to offer, cool restaurants, stores, social life.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Green Acres Inn! Daniel was extremely helpful at the front desk. As we did not know much about Kingston we asked Daniel where to eat for dinner and he provided excellent suggestions along with a restaurant list. We tried Bella Bistro and it was excellent! The mussels with coconut sauce were awesome! In addition, we liked going to Smitty's restaurant for breakfast!

Our room was right across from the swimming pool and playground area which was perfect! Our kids enjoyed playing on the swing set and slide. Our kids also had fun playing a game of hide-and-go-seek as there is plenty of room for the kids to run around in the field area! The outdoor pool is also well maintained which we also enjoyed!

We also appreciate the detail put in our room by providing Crabtree & Evelyn products, a larger size TV and the four-stage water available at the front desk which a nice touch.

This was a great place to do an overnight stay as we were going from Toronto to Quebec and I would recommend the Inn especially for families!

Room Tip: If you are travelling with kids try to request a room across from the pool and playground area!

Nice clean room. Great friendly service. Large room (I believe we did the Tulip room). Nice looking pool. I liked the fact that room was large and we could park car directly outside. We will return next time we are in Kingston.

We just got back from Kingston and chose to stay at the Green Acres Inn based on the reviews here on Trip Advisor. We stayed in the Spa Suite, which was lovely with a very nice bathroom (jacuzzi tub and steam shower). The room and grounds are well kept and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful, recommending places to eat. The inn is located right on Princess Street, which is a straight 15 minute drive to downtown and the waterfront. The linens could be of better quality, but overall a great place to stay!

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Green Acres Inn!
The inn is very comfortable and clean, staff were very friendly. We felt
like we were staying in a small little cottage in the middle of Kingston. We stayed in the spa suite which was very well appointed.
Overall a good experience, it is definitely has more of a motel feel rather than an inn.
If travelling in the summer ask that they put the AC on prior to your arrival.
Enjoy!

Room Tip: Go with the spa suite

Nice place, sheets could be upgraded to match quality of room. Would make a huge difference. iPod went missing first day. Sure hoping they find it vs someone deciding they needed it. We'll see. Overall good - 15 drive from downtown .

Hello;

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your stay. I am delighted that you felt it was overall a good experience. Regarding our king sheets I appreciate your suggestion and we are in the process of replacing our inventory with 400 thread count ones to be in keeping with the queen sheet inventory that are 310 thread count white on white damask.

Please know that we are trying to locate your iPod and so I have extra staff on today and we are in the process of tearing the SPA Suite apart to see if we can find it. If you would please give us a quick call (800 267 7889 toll free) or email if you discover it.

Again thank you for your comments and for choosing to stay with us.

Sincerely,
Heather Ford
Innkeeper

I stayed at the Green Acres Inn last night while on a trip to Kingston. I was stunned to realize that it was more of a motel/motor lodge when I arrived. When you look at their website, it appears that the hotel is a self contained, multilevel building. That building is the reception area. The actual hotel is a series of 1 story rooms a the other side of the parking lot. The hotel is also directly off a very busy street, not tucked away on a quiet, treelined street.
That said, the room was actually very nice except for the very mushy bed. The bathroom was lovely and the front desk staff was very helpful.

Room Tip: Get a room in the very back away from the road
