Only a few... More

Not only did the heat in the room not work the reateraunt ran out of three of the main courses. There was urine on the toilet seat in our first room. Due to the heat not working around 11pm we had to switch rooms. Worst of all when this was brought to the attention of the general manager nothing was... More

I stayed at the colonial on business in February and very much enjoyed my stay. The room was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable, the staff was super friendly and extra credit to the lady at the breakfast who was absolutely amazing. Honestly, it was a great hotel and I found the colonial decor to be perfectly charming. The only thing... More

There is NO law that states you can not take liquor beer or wine into your room! This is a rule for this hotel and the owners of this company. The liquor law prohibits you from brings alcohol beverages not purchased at the hotel into any public areas.

Overheard staff discussing mildew and mold in the rooms. Guests can't tell because the rooms "look new" apparently. The workers there think this is funny and okay. I do not recommend staying at this low end hotel.

I was at this facility for a wedding. The first thing is the bed was comfotable and the room was quite spatious. The room was a little tired.This is more a reflection of the age of the place rather than upkeep as all the common areas were quite nice.They are very strict about no alcohol in the rooms as evidenced...

Great stay, except they are really great at enforcing the Mass State Liquor Law about not bringing you own champagne into your room to the point where they instruct their housekeeping staff to raid your cooler and call management. So much for after hours toast for the bride and groom in their bridal suite!

I apologize that you were displeased with our policy regarding outside alcohol. Unfortunately, it is necessary for us to enforce the policies provided to you at check in. We do however offer a complimentary bottle of champagne after the wedding in the suite for the bride and groom. More

I recently traveled to Gardner for a friend's wedding and my boyfriend and I decided to stay overnight at the Colonial so that we could thoroughly enjoy the wedding at this location. I must say that the Colonial delivered and was pleasantly surprising. The wedding itself was amazing, with fantastic service and helpful staff. The room we stayed at was... More

My family stayed here for our ninth anniversary. It was the perfect location for what we wanted to do. We were going to Salem and the Keane pumpkin festival. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. We will definitely be returning!! The breakfast buffet is worth the money but should be included in the price of... More

My husband and I had our same-sex wedding at the Colonial this past weekend, and we just can't even put into words how wonderful everything was. From the very beginning the entire staff at the Colonial has been very helpful and accommodating. Mary and her staff are the best of the best and we absolutely loved working with everyone. We...
