    Bed and Breakfast aboard the Museum Ship

    by

    Well, it sounds like a great idea. Take a retired Coast Guard Ice Breaker, dock it in historic Kingston and offer unique accomodations to visitors. And, it is a great idea, however, alot of work needs to be done to this ship to make it an attractive and comfortable night's stay.

    The flooring needs to be replaced, the guest rooms need painting and the bunks need new mattresses. Even though it is probably the cheapest place to stay in town, I wouldn't recommend staying here unless you are on a very tight budget!

    Unique Quality: Having said this though, I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, it's location was good, within walking distance to downtown and with free parking, and the continental breakfast was first class. You are also entitled to free admission to the Marine Museum located next door.

    The most interesting accomodation in Kingston!

    by

    I know. This is not what you expected under accomodation tips. No worry, Kingston is full of large, American Hotel chains like the Best Western or Days Inn. You see those everywhere. You don't see this one in every town! I am pretty sure. :)

    The Alexander Henry is a huge, Canadian, Coast guard ship and ice breaker, all in one. The ship is out of service since 1989 and serves as part of the marine museum and bed & breakfast at night and in the mornings. It was fascinating to be on a huge ship like this.

    Unique Quality: IT'S A SHIP!!!
