We had a room overlooking the river which was fine but a lot of the rooms overlook and inside area where there is a swimming pool, gaming machines, air hockey, pool tables and some tables and chairs. If I had a room that looked at...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 April 2017 via mobile

We were attending a bridal shower in nearby Lake Katrina and decided to stay in the area and explore. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are newly decorated. Breakfast was plentiful, eggs and sausage and fresh waffles. We also took advantage of free room service delivery after being out all day exploring downtown Kingston and Woodstock. Great place.

Stayed here for a wedding. Pool was only open from 10-10 si it was closed by the time reception was over and wasn't open before check out. Rooms weren't as clean as expected. Bar staff was rude. Hotel had an off ordor and bagels at breakfast were hard as rocks. Won't stay here again ! Lesson Learned.

the hotel seems too old,with old carpets,old curtains,old furnitures,old bathroom,old design... outside,the building has not an attractive looking. According to me,this Best Western PLUS offers less than an Super 8. The rate is not worth at all. I will avoid to stop here next time.

I stayed overnight at the Kingston Best Western to meet with colleagues in the area. It's conveniently located just off the NYS Thruway. The room was large, clean, and well-appointed; I especially appreciated the desk for my work. The staff was friendly and super accommodating, I was traveling with my two cats, and they felt welcome as well :).
