Relaxing at Davis Locks

A travel blog entry by mgsaulis

We enjoyed the mooring (actually at a dock next to the locks, but Canadian's call it a mooring) at Davis Locks so much we decided to stay Saturday night. The locks and marina's can be busy on the weekends and since we had a prime location at the end of the dock, we stayed and kayaked, swam, and watched the lock operations through the warm ...

We said goodbye to Patty and Kurt Kruger this morning. They headed to the wine country. Daisy saw the local veterinarian because she was listless and not eating. A blood work up was done and the vet decided Daisy had a bacteria infection. Daisy got a shot, some pills and ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points Hotel And Suites Kingston

    We Like This Hotel - Why All The Bad Reviews?

    from

    I'm perplexed by all these bad reviews for the Four Points Sheraton Kingston, so I'm compelled to add a review. We have stayed several times while visiting family in the Kingston area, and have always enjoyed our stay. Our most recent was Dec 29-31, 2004. We had a junior suite (queen + dbl sofa) overlooking old Kingston, and we paid $119 CAD. It was just my wife and I and our 6 year old. Our other two kids stayed with family elsewhere, but we did all come back and enjoy the pool a couple times.

    Four Points why this hotel is unsatisfactory

    from

    I stayed here in January for the first, and last time! Here is why!

    The rooms are small! I could hardly spread my arms out without hitting a piece of furniture or the wall!

    The "pool" is a lap pool, small and not really great for kids. Plus, their gym facilities are small, even by hotel standards!

    The parking is horrendous. A small, ill planned garage beneath the hotel! If you were lucky enough not to hit anything on the way down, don't count on others doing the same!

    Staff are unfriendly, cold, and should be more hospitable given the prices. For a room that can cost over $200 (in their high season, albeit this wasn't my January rate) the staff are rude!

    For the four reasons listed above (and I am sure many others) I would avoid this place.

    Felt unwelcome

    from

    There isn't much to say about this hotel other than the staff are unfriendly and not welcoming. I've visited many times and they are cold and not hospitable. Its a shame since the facility is nice, rooms somewhat small. I'll continue to stay elsewhere and advise others do the same.

    Don't be fooled

    from

    I visit Kingston often for business, and when this hotel opened, as it is relatively new... I was interested to try out a new hotel.

    Well, I visited near opening, and also most recently and I must say nothing has changed! The hotel looks great from the outside, but its certainly deceiving!

    I've had shoeboxes bigger than my room, and the service stinks. The Front Desk has such attitude, checking in and out is just annoying.

    Kingston has many other good hotels to chose from, skip this place and go somewhere else.

    Never again

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Four Points in August and were thoroughly disapointed. While I know that Four Points is the cheaper version of Sheraton, I think this hotel goes to far.

    Easter weekend

    from

    We stayed here Easter 04. Were overcharged and had a terrible stay as my wife is a professional CMA ,and were not allowed a discount. We were 4 hours from Kingston and forced to pay the exorbadent price, could have went to Mexico for a week for the price charged, will never recommened this place.

    Would not go back

    from

    I stayed here a couple years ago and really enjoyed my stay. Everything was clean, and the staff really seemed to be making a lot of effort. When I visited Kingston again I picked the Four Points.

    Nice Clean Hotel, excellent location, bit pricey for what you get

    from

    Stayed one night in August 2004. The Four Points is well located for tourists - very close to the harbourfront near all the major sites. The hotel seems very new and the reception service was very good. There seemed to be no bellboy presence - not that it mattered to me. The room was very clean and functional - nothing fancy (though free high speed internet), all the basics were there - except minibar (available in some rooms) and pay movies (not a big deal). The king-size bed was very comfortable and there was a view of the lake. Some of the rooms had balconies - mine did not. Bathroom was very clean and simple. Bath towels are a bit small. I did not eat in the hotel but did call room service for a corkscrew and some wine glasses - promptly delivered. Overall, a very pleasant stay. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Three drawbacks - 1) when contacting the hotel directly, they could not apply the corporate rate (I called Starwood reservations and managed to get the rate). 2) Price was a bit high for basically a competent hotel - Kingston's hotels seem to be quite pricey for what you get - I would not have felt that this was a good value if I'd paid the full rate. 3) Room Noise - We had a connecting door to another room and the noise was quite loud. Admittedly, it seemed to be an older couple who were in the room who liked to argue, had guests over to the room and would fiddle with their barfridge for about 10 minutes at a time. Make sure you request that there is no connecting door!

    Quiet with location

    from

    Decided to change from the Holiday Inn because during the winter months the noise of kids running the halls at night who were staying for hockey tournaments became unbearable. The Sheridan was peaceful and very quiet. Other pluses were its excellent location to restaurants and the farmers market, during the warmer months. The pool,sauna, and whirlpool were very clean and seemed unused. The excercise room had one problem- too hot. We stayed on the ninth floor and never had to wait for an elevator, going up or down. The breakfast and Friday night buffets were both excellent. The hotel is an excellent deal from January through March and then becomes more expensive. You can open a window in your room.

    Nice, But....

    from

    The property was nice but not for that price. There was no continental breakfast, an elevator from the parking garage to the lobby, then a separate elevator to your floor. The pool was nice and clean, The room was nice with a good balcony view. Search for deals and it would be a good buy.
