We stayed at this hotel for a wedding and reception, while the rooms were clean looking and the bedding was clean looking, what caused us some concern was while the cleaning ladies were in the hallways with their carts, on top of each cart, and we counted six that we saw, each of them had a can of Roach Killer...

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding and reception. They managed the wedding and reception wonderfully - considering there were 2 weddings on the same day. It is tucked away off the "beaten path" for sure - but would be a nice venue for foliage seekers in this beautiful area of western Mass. The rooms were spacious enough, a... More

For any bride interested in having her wedding at the Colonial Hotel, please read this!!! There are too many words and not enough to describe my son's wedding at the Colonial Hotel, romantic, beautiful, perfection, flawless, this does not begin to describe the day...

We stayed at this hotel because it was near to a wedding we were attending in Gardner. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere! Because they are always booked with weddings on site, the prices of their rooms are inflated. We stayed one night for $175. Seriously? While the room was clean and beds comfortable, at that price I... More

I am very sorry to hear that you were not pleased with your stay. I understand that you were upset that the restaurant was not open until 7am. I will speak with the restaurant manager and see if we can have them open a little earlier for coffee service on the weekends. During the week we do open at 6am.... More

This was the first time we stayed at this hotel. We attended a wedding reception that was held for 150 people under a large tent. Very nice facilities. The hotel has a pool and exercise room and the banquet/meeting facilities are very large. The grounds are very nice and well maintained. The hotel rooms are being renovated and if your... More

This is the 4th time I've stayed here in the past 3 years, and continue to enjoy the hotel. The staff is friendly, and the rooms are nice - and with the most recent room remodelling everything is fresher and a bit more traditional, vs. heavier in a colonial flair. It's certainly nice to stay in a place where you... More

We stayed here for a school reunion, and while the staff was pleasant, and the common rooms ample, the actual bedroom was lacking. First, it was a no-smoking room in which previous guests had been smoking -- a lot. We complained, and housekeeping arrived with air freshener spray. The beds were decent but the linens were just average. The room... More

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced during your stay here at the Colonial Hotel. We have just renovated the entire facility, and all of our rooms are non-smoking. We have implemented a fee for anyone that smokes in any of our rooms so that we can have them deep cleaned for the next guest should this... More

You would stay here because of it's location close to Cushing or whatever else is in the area. It would not be a destination unto itself! I can see why someone would have a wedding here - large space; great for a crowd; large dining room; workout facilities; spacious rooms. However, it all needs updating/sprucing up to feel like it...

Stayed twice in conjunction with visits to Cushing Academy. 2012,2013... Rooms were pretty sad. Think old neglected motel. Restaurant was fun, despite mediocre food and shaky service. The clinger was our communication with front desk- we mentioned that we were not sure of 2 or 3 nights... But when we confirmed 2, we were charged for third. I called and... More
