Seriously Fireside Inn, I am a BW Diamond member, I have stayed at your chain for over 35 nights in the past 5 months and I can't get a LATE check-out past noon? Seriously re-thinking any future BW reservations! I have stayed at other chains on multiple occasions and only asked one other time for a late check-out and was... More

I checked in during a snowstorm. The snow was blowing and it was really cold out. Walked out of the storm into the lobby and a pleasant busy restaurant with guests sitting in big wingback chairs with a fireplace blazing - very welcoming and nice. My room had a fireplace, comfortable couch and sitting area. Was so happy to take... More

This place tries for the rustic look and fails. The result is a place heavy on pine and a tad old, dreary and tacky looking. The bedroom is chock a block decorated with items one might associate with a rustic cottage up n the mountains. Unfortunately it just looks old and a tad cheap. The 'electric' fireplace is an example.... More

Stayed in many 5+ star hotels in passed. This hotel is a gem. Fantastic staff. Room was ready for us upon arrival including our crib for our baby. Although decor was dated there was nothing I could complain about. Cleanliness of rooms, super comfortable beds, parking, breakfast in dining room was great. Stop wasting your time looking in Kingston for... More

Came to stay at the Best Western Fireside Inn to visit my sister who lives in the next town over. Really enjoy our stay here. The hotel reminds me of a cottage cabin feeling. The hotel is also dog friendly. We book a dog friendly room in case we brought our dogs. But we got our daughter to watch them.... More

We needed somewhere near the railway station for a quick but good lunch in pleasant surroundings, & Tom's Place restaurant, in the Fireside Inn, was perfect. There really is a fireside; there are also comfortable chairs, enormous numbers of mounted deer heads & other animals (not the place for someone who flinches at the thought of taxidermy), no canned music...

Stayed here while in town for a funeral. Loved the fact that every room has its own fireplace. Bed was very comfortable and the breakfast that was included was great. Rooms are a little outdated with paintings and a wood duck but it was very clean and cozy with a leather couch to sit in front of the fireplace. This... More

The owners of this BW have been here since about 1975. There's a family atmosphere embedded in a professional approach to inn-keeping. From the moment the welcoming doors automatically swing open, to the inviting front desk staff, the cosy atmosphere of the one-of-a-kind Tom's Place bar with double-sided fireplace reminiscent of a lodge, and the classy Stefan's Bistro dining room,...

Welcoming staff, check in was easy. Room was clean and bigger than expected. We were able to adjust temp in room. Bathroom had larger size shower head that worked well. Room had a gas fireplace and a seating area. Free breakfast in the morning with a great selection of food. Great value.
