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

We were just passing through. It was late. kids were hungry. So we opted to stay at the colonial inn. The staff was awesome. They reccommended a couple places that were close to eat at and then they said it "delivery". They had this guy that would deliver from any restaurant in town. Yup score!!! Kids had pizza we had...

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

rooms were large and well maintained. The kids loved the pool always a plus after traveling to have a place for them to let some energy out. Had a very good meal at the Thai restaurant attached to the motel. Bar harbor was only 20 25 minute drive. All in all a good experience. We will be staying here again

I was in town for a late buisness meeting and it started snowing so I chose to stay the night to be safe. The sign said newly renovated and the rate was good so I chose the colonial Inn. The lobby was nice and clean and the room they gave me was a fantastic room on the end that had... More
