Verified Reviews of Best Western Plus Kingston Hotel & Conference Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Depressing outdated dark place."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This place is awful. The whole place is dark and dreary.My view out of my window was beams that held up the covered courtyard. The pool was was covered as well. The whole place is outdated in a sort of nowhere spot. Vending machine had flat soda even. The prices are way to high for a dump like this. The staff was nice.

"Very disappointing for the very high price."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
In December I was led to believe that the $339.00 rate per night was the best available for the Memorial weekend. We were shocked at the quality of our room and the hotel. The room was just average, appeared dated, had an unpleasant odor, the bathroom was average and the hotel is a maze of corridors, doors and elevators. After a rain, there was standing water in the covered courtyard. The breakfast was above average in the offerings, but the floor was dirty and there is not enough room for the number of guests. To his credit and employee (possibly a manager) did reduce the rate when we politely questioned it; but even the reduced rate was not justified by the quality. We have stayed in many Best Westerns and Best Western Plus hotels and have never experienced this level of dissatisfaction before.

"Complaint"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I cancelled three four days prior and never got a refund as the entire amount was withdrawn from my credit card. So far my calls to Best Western have not been fruitful.The fact that I got this survey implies an error on the hotels part since I was never there!

"Quality service, poor Internet."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Greetings, This may be an unfair score, as the reason for my visit was to complete a book signing and to work on my dissertation (and other work activities). The Internet was out for large portions of one day and evening, thus rending my visit somewhat compromised. The gym equipment, too, was a bit poor (e.g. the TVs on the elliptical either did not work or barely functioned). However and more importantly, the staff was very nice and professional, the breakfast buffet was terrific and I am grateful for the experience. That said, I will likely try another hotel in my next excursion in the hopes that the WiFi will be more reliable. Very best,.

"Under construction"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Hotel is undergoing major overhaul. Rooms are clean. Pool was great. Food was so - so because of the construction. Staff was working hard to please and to maintain positive attitude. I would have to see the end result of the upgrades to make an assessment. Lots of work and money needed to bring it up to grade.
