“Check out other places in Lindsay”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

The first room we were put in was very small and cold. When we called they did move us to an upgraded room (it had heat) and the room was larger with two queen beds. We were informed that because it was an upgraged room we were only allowed to use one of the beds not both. Not sure I have ever heard that before. All in all a 2 Star Stay.

Thank you for your honest review about the Kent Inn. We would just like to let you know that while you were staying at the motel we just got our new heating system installed and it has been causing many problems in which we cannot have control the heat in the rooms. Since then we have called in a technician and are working to get the problem fixed. We are truly sorry this problem occurred during your stay at our motel, we hope you will come again.

We were very pleased with our stay at Kent Inn.
In Lindsay, there's not much to choose from for accommodations, as the bulk of places are motels. However, based on other positive reviews of Kent Inn, we decided to go with them for the night, as we were in town for a concert. The rate was very reasonable (we stayed in the King room), we had a balcony, the room itself was very clean, and the bed was completely comfortable from duvet to mattress.

The Inn was located within walking distance of all that we needed, and I would definitely recommend it. The owners were very friendly and helpful. It's an understated Inn but has the necessary comforts for an overnight stay.

We stayed in the older part of this motel, and had friends in the newer 2-storey section. Our room was cramped but clean. Our friends' room was spacious. Our room was very chilly - the regular heater was working, but not able to keep up with the winter temperatures outside. The small plug-in heater supplied with the room was very loud, and we either sweated or froze. Our friends' room was a comfortable temperature, and they didn't have to deal with a distractingly loud additional heat source. IF you are planning on staying here in cold weather (-12), be sure to book one of the newer rooms in the 2-storey section, or else bring earplugs or a sleeping toque!

When I saw the pics and reviews on this place I thought It must be nice well what a joke. That place was a mess. Dirty carpets ,stained chairs general upkeep was not very good at all. the room smelled very musty and could use a good scrubbing hard cleaning. The toilet plugged up the first time it was used and the furniture in the room was not in very good shape as well. It is not a chain but come on you have to keep the place in proper order and keep up if you expect customers to return and we would never stay in that place again. I think however wrote those comments must be friends of the owners or something.

Room Tip: Don't let that pic fool you this place needs allot of work to bring it up to standard

Hi I am the manager of the Kent Inn motel and I appriciate your review, and opinion on what you felt had to be fixed at the motel. We took into consideration on cleaning the carpets and had them treated today and will be cleaning them before Winter, one thing you do have to realize is not everyone takes care of the carpet the same way and we can not clean them on a day to day basis. All the room carpets were last cleaned in June. All of your comments were taken positivly and have been resolved, the one thing that did offend me is the comment about you saying that my relatives and friends write the reviews which is not true at all. We have loyal and trusted repeat customers who write reviews on what they think about their experience at the motel. If you do not believe me please feel free to contact the reviewers and ask them if this is their honest opinion. Thank you for your time and considiration.

I've stayed at many other places in Lindsay and they can't compare to this Inn. I can't say enough good things about this place. Good prices, clean updated rooms and amazing owners, Chris and Priti.

I highly recommend this place to everyone planning to stay in Lindsay.

Very Nice, Neat and Comfortable Place. Centrally located and gives you an easy access to all the important places in Lindsay ( Downtown, library, Square mall etc).The owners (Chris and Priti) were very kind and helpful. Strongly recommended to people visiting Lindsay.

When we arrived in Lindsay we had a room booked at the Admiral Inn, so we stayed there one night. I have a lot of negatives to say about that hotel....suffice it say we heard from a local about the Kent Inn and the next morning checked in to that instead. What a world of difference. It was clean, quiet, we felt safe (unlike at the Admiral) and the best part were the beds - they were the most comfortable I've slept in anywhere I believe. Even our bed at home is not as comfy. And their sheets/bedding were amazing and soft. The owners were very friendly and eager to please. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone needing a place to stay while in Lindsay.
