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

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
