Nice location to go to Arcadia National State Park. When we entered the room, it smelled. No air or fan was on. The refrigerator wasn't even plugged up. We didn't even get shampoo/conditioner which every hotel gives. You get coffee in the mornings. You get free wifi.

The Colonial Inn is a very good value Inn. Stayed two nights. Heated outdoor pool. Quiet place, clean rooms, easy drive to Acadia. Would definitely stay there again. On the main road into Acadia, restaurants in the area, too.

We booked this motel last minute as we were supposed to be camping but heavy rain delayed us one night. The front desk staff was very friendly but that's where it ended. The indoor pool was closed for repairs and our room was not very inviting. There was a strong musty smell and overall dingy appearance. There was also a... More

This place has had some work done on it and looks fresh again. We took the kids swimming here and the cost was reasonable, the pool and surroundings were very clean. They offered a shower area just off the pool area to dry off before leaving the area. I liked how the staff made a point to say " see... More

I took the kids here over vacation week. They were running a deal that week so I thought great get-a-way. The room was much bigger than I expected, Which was great because I had FOUR KIDS (what was I thinking) with me. I brought them to the pool and relaxed with a book while they swam. The Pool and pool... More

I am so impressed at how nice it looks in there now. The lobby is beautiful. All new carpets and furniture. Even the toilet is brand new. The last time I stayed here it smelled bad people smoked up and down the halls. It was dark and dingy. Now it is awesome. The fresh flowers smell fantastic. its bright and... More

Broken toilet seat, shower control valve barely useable, shower curtain WITHOUT a liner (wraps around you while trying to take a shower) dented, beat-up fridge, old scratched up furniture, the only new things in the room were carpeting and paint. Hallways looked good though... When I informed the front desk clerk about the toilet seat she offered to repair the... More

This is a very simple roadside motel in Ellsworth, ME. It's an easy drive to Acadia NP, but it takes around 30-35 minutes to reach the park entrance. We booked this as a last minute trip during high season in August, so we didn't have too many options available for a dog-friendly place to stay. (It was an extra $10... More

I stayed at the colonial inn because it was close to a local business I was doing some consulting for. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable. Luckily they had a mini fridge and microwave in the room. They also supplied me with plates and utensils. Very helpful. I will defiantly stay here when in town on... More
