This is an older property, but its kept clean. Could do with new mattress our room had a small kitchenette which was nice. The only mirror is in the bathroom really inconvenient for two females trying to get ready to go out. Really liked the owner, but the place could do with some refurbishment. Last but not least its expensive.... More

This motel was a huge disappointment! The building is old and dark. We didn't have control of the a/c-- we had to call the owner at the front desk every time we wanted the a/c turned on and in the middle of the night the room was warm again because they had turned the a/c off! There is no view... More

Although we found the rooms to be clean, the place was old, outdated and unpleasant. It appears that the owners have no intention of renovating the place. The beds sagged in the middle,and certain rooms the owner had control of the air conditioning. There were rooms with kitchenettes, but they could have at least offered fresh coffee in the office...

I have enjoyed the owners' hospitality several times over the years, most recently this summer (2013). I have stayed in several different rooms, all invariably clean with kitchenettes, microwaves, stoves, and comfortable air conditioning that I have left on continuously through my stay. The rooms have always been consistently cleaned each day, with fresh towels and linen, and I have... More

Very unimpressive...old dilapidated property...I don't know what the other reviewers mean by clean rooms, but I was greeted by the smell of musk when I walked into my room, found spiders in the corner, cobwebs next to the bed, and the towels in the washroom are filthy. I thought I was safe by bringing my own towel, but room service... More

Stay here if you enjoy old hot, stuffy rooms. We had to ask owner to turn it on each day,then he would shut off in a few hours- during the night! Fan was provided but loud & noisy along with the refrigerator. Rug was green & old,probably just as unclean as the very old bedding! No Kleenex, only 1 towel,... More

There are several buildings. They are all old. We stayed in the upper building. The room was clean. There is a kitchenette, but no microwave. There is a coffee maker, but no coffee. No hairdryer. No Kleenex in the room. Some of the rooms do not have air conditioning. There is no ice machine. WiFi worked good in the rear... More

This little inn was quaint. We did stay in one of the two suites located off the house and set by itself somewhat. the room was clean and comfy. Perfect for the location. If you are looking for modern updated this isn't for you. The TV was tiny about the size of my computer monitor. Parking very good; staff not... More

While following 550 bicyclers through the Finger Lakes the agenda called for us to stay in the dorms at Keuka College. When we found that the dorm rooms were not air conditioned we looked for a place close by to stay. We found Colonial Motel and it met all of our needs. While the place is an older motel, it... More

We stayed in a kitchenette room and it was quite clean and comfortable. I liked the variety of the flowers on the property and I could see them directly out our 1 window. I enjoyed sitting out front in the lounge chairs reading, it is a peaceful environment at Keuka. I thought the owner and staff could be a little... More
