I've stayed in Mansion of Turtle Creek, Ritz-Carlton, Econolodge and others. When reading reviews I often think reviewers are not considering where they are and what they are paying. The Colonial Inn was not the lowest priced room in Brandon but the lower priced places were older motels with outside doors. This is not a four star hotel but it... More

Upon entering room, I could tell beds were quickly made, due to placement of pillows, how the sheets were turned down and the fitted sheets were not completely on. Carpet filthy, filthy, toilet had hair on seat, blood on side table and on wall above bed. Did bedbug check and found food crumbs on box spring. How do food crumbs... More

Travelling for business. Friendly staff and I was able to get help when asked. I was happy with the location for where I wanted to go as well as nearby restaurants. I had time to enjoy the pool which was big and clean. Good price and stay.

Rooms very dated with tube tv. However, clean, had fridge and microwave, bed comfy and lots of hot water with good pressure. Continental brekky sparse: toast and instant porridge only hot items with little fruit and pastries. Coffee was gross and OJ was powdered. There is a McDonalds next door though. Indoor pool clean and hot tub reasonably hot. Free... More

I am a frequent traveler & hotel shareholder, probably one of the saddest places I've ever stayed in. With 4 other huge events in Brandon that weekend, however, I took what I could get. Pros: Extremely friendly & helpful front desk staff Surprisingly comfortable bed Rolling Pin restaurant had excellent service & fantastic sushi CHEAP, a suite for the weekend... More

Literally and figuratively. Part missing affected the heat in pool. Nice pool/hot-tub otherwise. Good, friendly people working the front and breakfast, and house-keeping, as well. Good price, good location. Sidewalk entering building needs some t l c .

This is one of the shabbiest, run-down, and disgusting motels in which we have stayed in six years of travelling coast to coast. While it may have been reasonably clean, it was hard to know for sure with furniture, walls, fittings and carpets being so beaten up. Furniture should have been replaced decades ago. It's price point should have been... More

The cost is 30% less and just as nice. The outside of the hotel and in the hallways didn't impress me but the room is very clean and in good condition. What more can one ask for. The pierced nose eyebrow and ears of the desk clerk mean nothing. Great guy, very friendly.

A relatively last minute booking. Started bad when the non-smoking room I requested through expedia didn't materialise and none available. Room was dated but clean and tidy, however the smoke smell was bad. Noisy air conditioner (even when turned off) meant I didn't sleep a wink. Called reception and was allotted another room with a similar problem. Unfortunate with a... More
