Was up here for a Summer wedding and decided to stay over nite a couple days prior. This was pretty much all that was available. It certainly served the purpose. Seem to be clean. Staff was friendly and accomadating. Restaurant breakfast was very reasonable in quality, quantity and price. Would I stay her again? Probably.

What a mistake The room was dirty , smelled like mould, the carpet was actually wet from moisture and the 1970's " in the wall" air conditioner did not cool well and was very loud The decor was dated ... Overall not impressed... More

We have always had a great stay at the Colonial. Very clean rooms and very friendly staff and owners that always makes you feel at home. After fifteen years of visits we have never had an issue. Awesome restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Great location close to restaurants shopping etc. Minutes to downtown and public beach. We all highly recommend... More

I needed accommodation for the night and when I checked prices, the Colonial was the best value. You have to remember that when I stayed, it was still in summer vacation mode and accommodations are at a premium. The staff was very friendly and provided any information needed. The room was clean and had a fridge and microwave. There were... More

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

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
