I have been staying here for a few years. The hotel is clean and the rooms are good, antiques are not my thing but it does give it a bit of it's own charm. I love the breakfast here and it is part of the reason I come back. Recently I booked 2 rooms for my family, I called the... More

We were warmly greeted, and given a detailed explanation of parking, breakfast availability, and the never-ending coffee and tea, all for a good price. Despite there being no vacancy, were upgraded to a king from a queen. The room was spacious, with two armchairs, a decent tv, a desk, and night tables, with a well appointed and clean bathroom, including... More

Staff super friendly....hotel was clean and tidy. Good price for the room and the mattress was comfortable. We ate in the restaurant and the meal was excellent and really fast service.....also got 20% off the meal because we were hotel guests. On the negative side the AC/Heater fan was very noisy and we had to turn it off and the... More

Booked over expedia so were exactly sure what we were getting. Turned out to be pleasantly surprised! Very clean quaint little motel. The saltwater pool was a nice change from chlorine! Hot tub could be a little warmer but overall a great night. Bonus is the attached restaurant that offers a very nice breakfast and offers 20% off if you... More

Not only was the location great to amenities and the staff incredibly friend, but they accepted our dog in the room as well. Was very pleased with out stay. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I have stayed here many times when visiting family in Port Elgin. The rooms are spacious and comfortable (though not fancy). Each room seems to come with a fridge, everything is clean, and the staff are friendly. When my large family had to visit a sick family member in the hospital they were very accommodating and kind. Good value for... More

This motel is overpriced and over rated the rooms are clean but the decor leaves a little to be desired and the good comments the breakfast are misplaced. It was greasy and service poor. No in room coffee and for $150 plus tax that's a bit tight.

I had a nice stay last evening while traveling on business. Stayed in Room 65 which was one of the newer rooms, also stayed in the older section several months ago. Both rooms were nice but the newer sections, while a little more money, was worth it. The room was clean and bed & pillows very comfortable. The staff is... More

Booked one night in the newer section of the motel. Clean. Fresh. Very happy staff at the front desk. Nice beds, sheets, and back porch. Overall great stay! Breakfast in the hotel was yummy, nice staff and good food. Overall a win. I recommend this place to anyone stopping though.

Most of the time I stay in chain motels because, while they are rarely excellent they are also rarely terrible. The Colonial is one of the best independent hotels I have ever stayed in. You will find friendly people beginning at check-in and continuing throughout your stay. The property is meticulously maintained and scrupulously clean. I didn't try it but... More
