Expanded inn complex with pool and hot spa. Charming touches include afternoon baked novelties and continental breakfast. Within short walking distance if restaurants, Ogunquit Beach and the Marginal Way. Great space for families with children. Refridge in room and more than adequate space for family of 5.

We stayed for four nights at The Colonial Inn, and Thomas and Michelle were very pleasant and helpful to us during our stay. They were able to make suggestions about things to do and places to go, and provided us with everything we needed during our stay. A special thanks to Denise for keeping our room immaculate! Of particular enjoyment... More

Stayed here with family in July 2014 and was very pleased with accommodations. They have renewed the entire place and have done a lovely job. They play special attention to even the outside. The flowers are spectacular. The location is walking distance to almost everything, but the trolley stops right out front, so you can hop on and gooooo! Good... More

The Colonial offers beautiful rooms and a great porch where we can sit a read a bit after a long day at the beach. We stayed in the guest house, which was really nice. We also visiter a room in the main building, which looked very good. We'll probably try to rent such a room in the futur. Afternoon cookies... More

I think we had one of the best rooms in the hotel, rm 408. The view was spectacular and the room was modern and clean. Perfect location as well. Where the hotel falls short is with some of the amenities. The free breakfast was terrible! We've had better free breakfasts at much lesser quality hotels. All they offered was oatmeal,... More

I go to Ogunquit every year. This year, my family and I were expecting to pay a little more on an hotel to get a great experience: good looking and a clean room, near the beach... Well, an almost 5 stars hotel like the review on Trip Advisor! It turned out to be a nightmare! When we arrived, it smelled... More

My wife and I recently got married in Ogunquit and couldn't have been happier with choosing the Colonial Inn. We stayed in an Ocean-Front Deluxe room on the top floor and were beyond pleased with the cleanliness, size, and views! The staff was incredibly helpful from the moment we booked our room in June to the moment we checked out,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Colonial Inn during the 4th of July weekend which aslo happened to be his birthday weekend. We stayed on the 4th floor in the Premium Ocean View Superior King which was in the corner of the building facing the ocean and it was beyond perfect! The bed was super comfortable and the room...

This is our second time staying here in two years. Every time we found the staff to be outstanding. With the exception of a noisy refrigerator everything was great. Breakfast was as expected, everything was fresh and we'll stocked. The chocolate chip cookies were an added treat .

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend for 3 nights. As this was our first getaway in 3 years without our 4 kids, we really looked forward to sleeping in and sneaking in a nap here and there after being out all day exploring. The main building had been beautifully renovated although the floors are still very creaky.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The last of the grand hotels of Ogunquit, the Colonial Inn has provided shelter and genuine Maine hospitality to travelers for over 125 years. Today, having undergone a major historical renovation and with new ownership and management, the Colonial Inn steps forward to reclaim its place among top hotels in the heart of Ogunquit. Accommodations at the Colonial Inn are comprised of 62 rooms spread throughout four different buildings, offering a variety of room configurations which can suit guests’ preferences or requirements, whether a single traveler, couple, family or group. The hotel’s Main Inn has been reconfigured and enhanced by taking the previous count of 44 rooms down to 28 rooms, several with water views. The end result is bigger guest rooms that afford a first-class experience with more of the comforts of home. Most rooms in the hotel – and every room in the Main Inn itself – boast a king bed and a coffee maker, all with new furnishings and décor. ... more   less
