Stayed here the night before Thanksgiving. 3 adults, 1 child in a suite with kitchenette. I don't think they have gotten around to renovating this particular room since it looked pretty dated. However, the suite was clean and neat (although the oven needed a good cleaning). Staff was very accommodating, helpful and responsive to our needs. They brought us an... More

Needed a place to stay. This was old motel, dated, double beds, over-priced. It was old, dark and dreary. Removed lamp shades to get more light. Shower head was mounted low, about waist high and had to be hand held to get wet. Very inconvenient. Should have been mounted high so one could sit or stand under it.

Very clean, very large room with all the usual amenities. It was like going back to the '70s with the flooring, tile, room dividers etc. Staff was friendly when asked to change to the 2nd floor. The only distraction is the traffic and this is the off season. Booked the room at one price that was very reasonable, when we... More

Sopped here late one night in August at the last minute. Did not have a double room available, but maintenance guy was working on a room with 2 beds and he stayed late to get it done for us which was great. We left to have dinner and when we came back it was done and ready for us. Room... More

Checked in to find no reservation. I had booked online so showed my confirmation email. She asked if I'd been charged. Checked cc and had been charged for 1 night. She took my cc for payment for second night and said she'd investigate and call me on cell. We were out the entire next day and when we came back... More

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. We had places where we could walk the dogs and other guests (some of whom also had dogs) were not disturbed. This was not a pretentious hotel and you... More

We knew it was "old" based on the prior reviews but this was just terrible. Front desk was FULL of signs of all the things they NO longer have, No breakfast, No hot tub, No Frig, No microwaves. THIS takes the CAKE....the toilet seat was painted BLUE and it was all rubbed off 1/2 blue and 1/2 white. The room... More
