Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by subculture Overall great experience, great rooms and new hotel
Overall great experience, great rooms and new hotel. The best holiday inn location in my opinion. Nice choices in room size, we picked the extended suite and enjoyed having the kids play / watch tv in one area while we relaxed in the sleeping area. Food, service, amenities, wifi were all well above average for this type of hotel. Would highly recommend to family, friends and everyone else!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sapper23 Excellent Hotel
I came to Kingston on Business. Was asked for Military ID to receive the government rate. Which some have an issue with but i had no issue proving i was military to receive the discount. My only real issue with the room was the air conditioning. It was difficult to keep the room at a comfortable setting. I find it was either too cold or too hot. At one point the heater kicked in and a smell of burning dust filled the room for a short period. eventually i gave up and tolerated a slightly cooler room to void the hassle of trying to work the controls. Entering the room for the first time the AC was set to 17 C. It was a meat locker in there! I did use the pool on site and found it was pleasant. Slightly stronger use of chlorine but understandable for a public pool. The hot tub was a very nice treat after a long day! My first morning i went to eat the continental breakfast and found the food visually unappealing and decided on Denny's next door for the remainder of my week long visit. I did however enjoy their coffee. One thing i have noticed with other holiday inn express is they offer fresh coffee near the front desk throughout the day. I did not notice this hotel doing this. although i did not look or ask. Overall the room was very nice for the price! I loved the HDMI port on the wall!!!! I was able to plug in my PC and enjoy Netflix on the go! I think this should be the new standard for hotels and this is the first time i have seen this and think every hotel should follow suit! The WIFI was excellent and only had to login once! Other hotels every time i boot up re enter login info. this was appreciated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GCBrown Good rates, new decor, fast internet
I typically stay at the downtown Holiday Inn but on this visit I gave this location a try. I wasn't disappointed. The staff were friend (which is typically at all Holiday Inns), the decor was new, the room was clean. The internet was really good. I prefer to watch on my portable device and at some hotels you can't even watch youtube. I did have any problems with internet while there. I may start staying at this hotel vs downtown as this location is cheaper.

Too few handicap parking spots available. On several occasions had to park way in the back and I have a major walking problem. Suggest you add those two more spots adjacent to the ones already identified. That would be much appreciated..............Thnx.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stolenbikemike Thieves in parking lot!
Nice clean hotel, but stay was not good for us as boltcutters were used to steal locked bike from our vehicle in parking lot. Staff were quick to point out that they weren't responsible. No cameras or security in rear lot. Too bad as otherwise a nice property, but obviously it is being targeted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1traveller57 Wonderful stay in Kingston, ON
This has to have been one of the best hotel rooms that I have stayed in. I am in hotels rooms frequently and found this to be one of the most comfortable rooms that I've been in ever, anywhere. The whole hotel (inside and out) was extremely clean and well kept. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great.

I stay at this property monthly and have nothing but good things to say. The staff is always friendly, the ladies at breakfast always recognize me and say hello and I can always count on my room being spotless.
Thanks folks for making it bearable to be away from home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Torontomom comfortable stay
I travelled with 3 young children to visit friends. I felt very comfortable and safe in this hotel. I chose this locatiion because of the proximity to the highway and being a short drive to downtown.
The complimentary breakfast had a great selection of hot and cold foods and was so convenient with the kids. Our room was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cody girl Dependable comfort and great service
Everything was completely satisfactory during our stay here. The one disappointment was that the breakfast eggs and turkey sausage were too salty. We have found this before at other Holiday Inn Express locations and when told, the staff have heard this comment before. I hope they will review and correct this, since many people are much more health conscious today and would prefer to salt their own food if necessary. We would always choose a Holiday Inn Express for their service, and hope they will make a change in this one area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not worth the expense Disappointing experience
I was pleased with the room and ammenities but have never been asked to prove I am travelling on government business in order to receive government room rate. I furnished front desk staff with government identification but that was not sufficient so a warning to all travelling on goverment id, do not stay here without your meeting "agenda"

Great stay. Every staff member we encountered was very friendly. The hotel was about the cleanest we've ever stayed at. The breakfast was fantastic and has such variety. The large television in the pool area is great! Will definetly come back on our next trip to Kingston.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by blondeknox Business stay
There was one issue that I had with my stay. I was in Kingston to attend a meeting (it was last minute arrangement) . When I went to check in I was asked for some documentation to prove I was there on business, in order to receive the government rate. I was very taken a back at this because of all my hotel stays I have NEVER been asked this by any other hotels. All I have been required to do is provide my government identification. This is a privacy issue. In no way is it the hotels business to know why or where I have a meeting or why I am staying at that hotel..
I highly suggest to stop this practice as it is against the customer privacy.

since I have a problem with arthritis in my hands the small tubes and difficulty in squeezing out the shampoo and conditioner is the only adverse comment I can make
every thing else exceded my expectations and was superior to other hotels I have stayed at in kingston

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DanaR24 Perfectly pleasant hotel off of the 401!
This was my 4th stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Kingston, ON.
Located right off of the 401, it is very convenient if you are just in for the night and planning a quick exit early in the morning to get back on the road. Staff was courteous, rooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable. There's a pool and whirlpool which is nice with kids. Breakfast is nicely presented with a good choice of food. While there is a Starbucks and a DQ and a pharmacy right across the street which is convenient, this is not a pretty location by any means -- not the location I'd pick if I was staying longer and really exploring Kingston. That said, it's only a five minute drive to downtown Kingston where the restaurants, shops and cafes are, and only a few more minutes to the Queens University campus. The room rate was not inexpensive but not overly expensive either.
All in all a fine place to stay in Kingston.

Hotel was chosen for its closeness to memorial gardens and access for a last visit to Kingston. Made a good choice because it turned out to be a comfortable and clean site to be based out of during a brief stay. Thank you.

We enjoyed our stay there but when we used the indoor pool the smell of chlorine was very strong. We actually had to prop open the door going outside to get fresh air in. Otherwise we had fun.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChapelHill10 Surprisingly Quiet
Despite being close to the 401 why was very quiet and pleasant. Room was great. Only criticism was that the breakfast could have been better. The food was not refreshed often so the eggs were cold and they had big gaps in time in replacing other food such as the cinnamon buns and bacon. I think it may have been a staffing issue because the one lady working there was running like crazy and working hard, I just don't think they had enough staff on.
Other than that - super clean, friendly, comfortable Would definitely recommend.
