Have stayed here many times - even before the renovation. Updated rooms are beautiful as are the lobby and veranda. Grounds are well-kept, staff is very friendly and helpful. Convenient location - park the car and relax! No need to drive around. Quiet at night. Included breakfast is more than adequate - many healthy choices - always fresh fruit! Being... More

We stayed here for the Ogunquit Fall Festivities. It had a great location as it was close to the center of town, Perkins Cove and the Marginal Way. The lobby is very beachy and even smells like the beach when you walk in. The cookies that are served in the afternoon are delicious but must have missed them on Saturday...The... More

The Colonial Inn was the perfect fit for our family. My husban and I stayed in the main part of the hotel, while our son, daughter in law and grandson stayed in the family units. The rooms were very large and comfortable. Our room had a king size bed and a little sitting area. I just wished it did have... More

Room was big and very clean with really nice decor! Beds and pillows super comfortable! We were there for a show at Jonathan's (within walking distance) and only had time for a short stay. Will definitely go back and stay here again when we have more time!!!

We were only here for one night but enjoyed our stay very much. The Colonnial Inn is very convenient for the town and walking the Marginal Way. The young lady on reception was very helpful and friendly on arrival. Our King room with ocean view was very nice and comfortable in a New England style, the bathroom very modern and... More

Great location in Ogunquit. Rooms were very clean and fresh. Bathroom finishes were excellent. VERY comfortable bed! The Premium Ocean View King gave us great views of the ocean. I would recommend staying in the main building.

A very pleasant hotel with comfortable room and helpful staff. There is a large communal sitting area which is tastefully decorated and relaxing to sit in. The continental breakfast had a good selection of food and was constantly re-stocked by the staff. The hotel was in easy walking distance to local shops, restaurants & the beach / coastal walk. We...

Love the Colonial! They have the best beds ever. That's honestly why we come back! Besides, the service is fantastic from the moment we step in til checkout. The front desk girl heated up my soup in the kitchen microwave (after she hoisted it up on the cart and even washed the turntable inside!) I inquired about the Surf 360... More
