“More than what you pay for!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

From the outside, the hotel does not appear as anything more than a side road motel but you will be surprised how accommodating the staff is to ensure your stay is to your satisfaction. The fully air-conditioned rooms are small but clean and furnished with everything you may need on your vacation, including a coffee machine, fridge, TV, internet connection, comfortable bed and an outside swimming pool. What else would you need to stay in the room overnight for 7 hours while the rest of your time is exploring the beauty of the 1000 islands region?? Breakfast, included in the cost of your stay, offers a variety of cereal, toast and breakfast breads and yummy waffles plus coffee, tea and juice to wake you up. Free newspapers and office desk staff helpful to get you orientated on the cities places to see. All that under $90 per night. If you have comfortable walking shoes, don't waste gas, but go for a 20 minute walk to the center of Kingston, hop on the city tour bus and visit Fort Henry, the penitentiary, military collage, university, churches and the shopping district. Finish of your tour at the lovely cafe, enjoy calorie packed dessert and a latte. Glad to have chosen Howard Johnson!

Room Tip: Ask the newly refurbished part of the hotel.

Howard Johnson has taken over a rundown property, and are making improvements, new bathroom fixtures, new t.v. new fridge, BUT the carpets, stained badly, too bad they would resolve to rent the rooms that have been brought up to date, and leave the others vacant, and not spoil the name of Howard Johnson as a place to stay, I would not stay there again.
The staff was friendly.
The cold breakfast was on par.
