It was very clean and the breakfast has a nice variety of choices. Staff was friendly and directed my wife to some good shopping areas. the kids loved the pool. Great having a 24/hr shoppers drug mart across the street as we noticed we had forgotten our toothbrushes before going to bed. Denny's is next door which is where we...

The hotels in Kingston can be expensive. Waterfront hotels and hotels right downtown are only for those with large wallets. With cheaper ($100 a night average) hotels (read: EconoLodge) you risk sacrificing cleanliness. Going a bit further from downtown and the water is your best bet - you can stay in a nice hotel without breaking the bank. The Holiday...

This easy to find well appointed property is a great place to get a comfortable evening to rest. The clean lobby and friendly informative staff were appreciated. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The bathroom had extra features like a electronic makeup mirror. Even with the close proximity off the 401 it was quite. The continental breakfast was more...

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express because it was reasonable priced for our needs and the location was perfect it is very close to the 401 but far enough way and position so there's no traffic noise from the highway. We arrived early to check in but the gentleman on the front desk checked with housekeeping to make sure...

This hotel was in a great location. Close to the 401. It has a lot of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Small plaza across the street with a Shoppers Drug Mart. There is an outlet mall a short distance away (about a 2 minute drive). Starbucks, Tim Hortons and 2 gas stations are on your doorstep. Morning breakfast...

The hotel is very nice and clean. Our room was quiet and well decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was the reason that I only gave the hotel an average rating. We were there for three breakfasts and it never improved. The eggs were not hot any morning and they were rather tasteless.

Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your room and found it clean and comfortable. We will review our breakfast procedures with the staff to make sure the eggs are being served at the appropriate temperatures.

We stayed here for the August long weekend while my husband went on a Scuba Diving day trip. The pool and spacious rooms plus walking distance to a large play place made it fun and easy to entertain two children under 5 without a vehicle. As usual, Holiday Inn Express had friendly check inn, and clean spacious rooms. Breakfast had...

The hotel decor is new and nice. Cleanliness was great. Staff was friendly and the rates were comparable to other hotels in that area. Used the pool which was fine. The hotel has connections by the desk (HDMI, S, etc) which I am assuming you could hook up your computer or another device and play your entertainment off the TV....

Usually I would avoid holiday inn express but we only needed to stop one night to break up our trip from Montreal to Toronto for our 11 week old baby. We were very pleasantly surprised though. This was a lovely hotel in a convenient location. The breakfast was great too!
