What a great place. Ogunquit Chamber of Commerce suggested we stay here and they were right on the money. The Colonial exceeded expectations on every level, especially with a clean, spacious room and friendly service. The front desk staff was courteous and very helpful in providing directions, suggestions for dining and touring, plus general insight about the area. The pool... More

For the first time, I feel that the pictures on a hotel website matched exactly what the hotel actually looks like. In fact, the Colonial Inn was nicer in person. We stayed in the building just next to the main inn, and our room was HUGE. We had 2 queen beds, a fridge/microwave, 2 chairs and a table, and a... More

Perfect location for Ogunquit! Within walking distance to the beach, Perkins Cove, the Marginal Way and shopping. Our room was cleaned promptly every morning and the continental breakfast was wonderful. Great value!

This was a lovely spot to spend the past five nights, and I was sad to leave today. This beautiful, old hotel has been newly renovated, and everything was clean and bright. Our room was charming, clean, and comfortable. We loved the original pine plank flooring, and summer cottage feel of the decor. Our king bed had a comfy memory... More

I was very excited to stay here after all the positive reviews, but my wife, two little boys and I had a terrible experience. 1. the room smelled like vomit. We asked the cleaning people to change the linens. Supposedly, they did, but the stench was still in the room. I mentioned this to the front desk, and they said... More

The Colonial Inn was a bit pricey, but the room they gave us was worth it. There was a hold-up to check into our room, supposedly because they were taking photos of it -- for Tripadvisor, as we understood it. They eventually changed our room, assuring us it was a beautiful room and it was, on the third floor with... More

Stayed here for a 5 day vacation. The hotel was in walking distance of everything which was great. The staff was nice and even spent time giving us recommendation since we had never been to Ogunquit before. The room was nice and even though we were on the end by the road, the noise was limited. The room was always... More

We had a perfect room with a lot a space ! Most rooms don't have balcony but spending time on the porch is very enjoyable. It is a good continental breakfast, do not expect too much. Walking distance from restaurants, bar, beach, Marginal way and Perkins Cove. Highly recommand

Friendly, happy, helpful staff, cannot do enough for you. Beautiful , relaxing lobby & wraparound desk, great for sitting, reading, chatting & laughing. Rooms homey with great bedding. Breakfast is delicious, can eat inside or on patio.Brief walk to Maginal Way, Perkins Cove & center of Ogunquit. Can't wait to return!

Stayed 3 nights at the Colonial Inn, a lovely Victorian style inn that has been recently updated. We had a large, roomy king room on the first floor, so no view of the ocean, though the Inn is located on the ocean side of the street. Nice pool and hot tub and plenty of chaises and chairs. Spacious bathroom had... More
