Our second visit was in August 2014, If you are new to Ogunquit this would be a great place to stay. Within walking distance to the center of town and very convenient to the Marginal Way.

A stay where we travel through time. Excellent service,clean, lots of flowers, small attentions, like fresh iced lemonade at the entrance. What a nice place to stay. Not very far from the beach. Continental breakfast is served and is good. A big living room where we can relax, read, drink and read. A touch of class

Dear Denise G, We love what you said about our Inn- that it is like “traveling through time”. Even with the renovations, the history of our Main Inn is something that you certainly cannot miss! We are so happy that you enjoy our amenities and hope to see you again this coming season. More

Beautifully renovated hotel in the heart of Ogunquit. Have had the pleasure of staying in a room with ocean views and have already booked our stay for September of 2105. Staff is exceptional and very accommodating. Rooms are well appointed and love that the renovation has kept the old time feel of the original building. A wonderful place to stay.

Colonial inn is a great hotel in one of the most relaxing and nice vacation spots we found. Ogunquit has Beautiful Clean beaches, great restaurants and a selection of nice shops in town. Picture perfect but pricey. Not an ideal location for those on a budget. The hotel is close to many spots in town. There is a trolley shuttle... More

Millions have been spent and a wonderful Inn full of beautiful colors and a relaxing atmosphere has been recreated and updated. Very convenient location though there is no direct beach access. A short walk takes you to shopping and many restaurants. There is only one very small elevator for guest use. One of the safety concerns is that during our... More

The Colonial Inn offers the best of both worlds: a close walk to Ogunquit's fabulous beach as well as nearby shops and restaurants. We stayed here during the busy, bustling summer season, but we're looking forward to visiting during the off-peak months when we can enjoy the ocean view and inviting patio and lobby to just chill out and read....

Great place, excellent service but a little pricey. The weather was nice so we add breakfast on the patio. Cookies are offered in the main lobby. Parking is not a problem. Would go again! They helped us for tickets for Ogunquit Playhouse.

We were very pleased with the relaxing appearance and layout of the Colonial Inn. The porch and reception area were very well appointed and tastefully decorated. We very much enjoyed the spiced tea and water stand in reception area. The room was nicely decorated. Bed was comfortable.
