Motel style setup on the outskirts of town. Makes a good stopover for a night. The rooms are very small but clean and the staff was polite but not super helpful. There are the usual coffee shops close by and loads of food choices on the Pembroke main drag.

The second night I was there a very noisy group of people checked into a room near where I was staying and ruined the rest of the night fully completely. I spoke to the Motel manager the following day and asked for a refund for the night to come that I had already paid for, saying that I didn't want... More

Nice friendly staff. Quiet and cozy and very clean. Don't let the outside fool you. Owners take pride in their motel, even made fresh pot of coffee for us last time we stayed. Better than the bigger hotels around if you are looking to get a good nights sleep without hearing partying this is the place to stay.

We stayed for one night as it was about half way to our destination, the room was small but clean and cozy. The beds were too firm for my liking, but it was quiet and we have a nice sleep. I would stay again.

First night in Pembroke I was tired and quickly grabbed a room at Champlain Motor Inn (near across the street from Fireside Inn). Big mistake. After refusing to stay in the first room at Champlain Motor Inn because it was absolutely disgusting with the smell of cigarettes, there were stains and burn holes in the blankets, and the smoke detector...

I'm all about getting a deal but I couldn't sleep at all there. The best was literally hard as a rock and the pillows weren't great either. It smelled and appeared cleaner then most MOTELS but the water never got hot and the heater didn't seem to work either. The good thing about this motel is its the only motel... More

This old gal is worn out. The wear and tear suggests a slovenliness, but the room was somewhat clean. I think the grunge was more stain than fresh dirt. On top of that, the water was tepid at best. We took night showers, a time when few patrons shower, but the water was still cool. There was no one on... More

Dear Rob & Sherry, Thank you for your feedback and your stay at the Colonial Fireside Inn. I sincerely apologize for the poor experience you had during your stay at our hotel. Unfortunately, I was not aware of the hot water problem till you informed us the next morning. Immediately after you informed me and upon further investigation, we found... More

We stayed for 2 nights as a walk in. The room was clean and the price was reasonable. Other than some cosmetic issues, like peeling wallpaper the room was fine. I do have an issue with the practice of leaving the windows open after the cleaning staff have cleaned the room. I wasn't impressed to return to find the front... More

One year ago we phoned in a reservation to this hotel (March 2013) for one night. We showed up and stayed for the one night. The place was a dump, smelled horrible and the counter help was surly. Jump ahead to one year later.... We just got our credit card statement for 2014 and found this hotel had charged us... More

I was on my way to Ottawa by a roundabout way and ended up stranded in Pembroke and needed a place to stay the night. It was with great trepidation that I ended up having to consider the Colonial as I was unable to get a room elsewhere. After all the building looked a bit dated and the town seemed... More
