The Peachtree Inn is located a 6-minute drive from Hwy 401 and about an 11-minute drive from Kingston's city centre. This hotel serves as a pet-friendly, budget option in the area of Kingston, and appeals to guests looking for a basic, no frills hotel for a short stay, with free breakfast and free parking.

This two-storey hotel, with elevator, offers 74 smoke-free and air-conditioned rooms and suites. Common room amenities include free Wi-Fi, free local calls, a 32" flat screen TV with cable, a coffeemaker, a mini-fridge, a microwave, a work desk, a hair dryer, and climate control.

The Bad
Guests who did not like the hotel focused upon a few areas of weakness: the dated condition of the property, noise disturbances, disappointment in the quality of various amenities, value for the dollar and even the location.

Some guests felt that although the hotel is being renovated, it was just too tired. It seems that there may have been a lack of attention to detail and the hotel lacked the 'polish' required to wow today's more sophisticated travellers. Guests complained of slow staff at the front desk that also responded in a manner that showed a lack of interest in the negative feedback and concerns brought to their attention.

Complaints were numerous and covered many areas: the hotel was different than the pictures online (on the top of a shopping centre), paper-thin walls, very little sleep due to talking neighbours, rooms completely run down, stale air in the room and throughout, the whole place smelled funky, windows were dirty, rooms were terribly outdated, Internet didn't work, beds were creaky, sheets torn, cleanliness is lacking, beds sagged in the middle, one sink did not drain well, shower head did not work well and definitely overpriced for what it offers.

Guests who did not like the location said it was too far from downtown, the waterfront and the better restaurants and bars.
