This family run establishment is perfectly situated on the shoreline of Collins Bay. It is close to the Kingston airport and a few minutes away from the Collins Bay Institution, a medium security facility.
The VIA rail zips right by across the street, although if you are in one of the back suites that face the water, you don't really hear it. There is a Tim Hortons right across the street!!!!
They are currently renovating the main office, which I hope will happen to the guest rooms. The room I had (King Suite) could definitely use a some sprucing up and a good thorough cleaning. But what they may lack in the standard "niceties and aesthetics" they more than make up for with their staff and focus on customer service, which is extremely friendly and very accommodating.
You certainly cannot beat the price nor the location. If you are visiting a military family member, this is not an ideal location for you as the base is clear across town.
After a good night's sleep on a very large and comfy bed, I completely enjoyed my morning coffee while taking in the views of the bay each day where staff always said good morning. Because of the waterfront location, there are a lot of spiders and webs around the doorways, so I had to clean my doorway each morning. The free wi-fi helped me to plan my day and stay in touch with others.
This establishment is also wheel-chair friendly as each room can be accessed by wheelchair.
