No problems at the Colonial Inn in Ellsworth. Most importantly our dogs were welcome. We had a pleasant, if not an ostentatious room, but it was comfortable, clean, and everything worked.

This was an O.K hotel, the price was somewhat reasonable, the room was clean, the staff was very nice, there were a couple of problems with the room though (sink not draining, shower had nothing to hold it up to the wall) but it was alright. all in all it was O.K.

This was the second time my family has stayed there in the past 2 months. Family friendly hotel with a pool and restaurant on site. Since change in ownership there have been many many improvements. The rooms look fabulous with new carpets, bed spreads, doors and much more.
