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

While lookling for a night stay over in the area, I came upon this motel. Having had some bad experiences in independent motels previously, I firstly called a few other bigger chains, one was much more expensive and the other left me on hold, long distance for about 10 mins. When I reached the Colonial, I was firstly impressed with... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Colonial during a hockey tournament. We hadn't stayed here before but were most pleased with the service from all the folks that served us here. Reception staff were friendly and helpful when I called to inquire about booking for the group and helpful when I needed larger rooms. Check in and check... More

I have stayed at this motel several times over the past dozen years while visiting Port Elgin. While it isn't luxurious, the rooms have always been clean and well-maintained, and the hotel staff very pleasant and accommodating. The food in the coffee shop is surprisingly good and reasonably priced, and the motel is well-situated on Highway 21 towards the south... More

We stayed at the Colonial last year and booked a room again with the same pleasant experience. Our room was very clean, roomy, comfortable and very quiet. The bathroom was spotless but towels were not in abundance. Staff are very friendly in the motel and the attached restaurant. I would definitely revisit.

We stayed here on the Canada Day long weekend. If it wasn't for the wait staff in the café, I'd give the Colonial Motel a higher rating. This is a nice basic motel, with a lovely little antique shop. Our room was clean and roomy, although it could have used some better lighting in the bedroom area. Breakfast in the... More

The motel was a bit dated but clean and in good repair. Location right on Main street thru Port Elgin. Rooms were a bit small and furnishings a bit outdated. I would stay again given the rates and the competition rates.
