Boucherville, Canada
Reviewed 25 April 2016

The rooms were very clean, and the beds very comfy. There is an electric fireplace in the room which is a plus. Breakfast was included, eggs, sausage, beans, hash browns, waffles, fruit, cereal, yogurt.....and more. The only thing we missed, is there is no lobby to hang out in.

The Best Western Fireside Inn, Kingston, Ontario, offers a pleasant, quiet and comfortable stay in a well located area near the Queen's University campus. The breakfast included is an ample spread with lots of choices.

Met a girlfriend there for a nice relaxing night away. Front staff was wonderful. Let us check in early and offered express checkout. Breakfast was included. Great food, could have had some more fruit but we didn't go down till almost 10:00. We sat chatting for almost an hour and no one rushed us out. Very friendly

A very pleasant stay. The room included a fireplace and lots of chunky pine furniture. King bed was a little hard for my liking but this would be my only concern. The breakfast buffet was nicely presented and offered in a warm cozy space.

I've stayed here about 10 times over a 5 year period. - Hotel fixtures and decor are very dated. "Country cabin" theme from the early 90's which is really just an excuse for shoddy amateur carpentry. - Breakfast is below average quality. - Some rooms offer no protection from adjacent rooms sound. Can hear conversations and TV even at moderate...

We ended up with a first floor room towards the back of the hotel. The rooms are large, and ours had a fireplace, fridge, two double beds, a small couch, desk, and a large flat screen tv. Our first night was very peaceful and quiet. The second night we had heavy-footed neighbours in the room above us who kept us...

Always an excellent stay. We have been staying at this particular BW on and off for the last 30 years. We find it has a very relaxing atmosphere catering mostly to couples. Tom's Place being our favorite lounge. We only wish it would stay open a little later after a return from concert, it was closing at 11:00

Hockey tournament staying at hotel. Children running up and down the halls till later in evening. Certainly not relaxing. Ask when booking if there is also a tournament staying to ensure you have a quiet space.
