It was secluded. They basically give you the room and thats it. The only annoying thing was in the morning, housekeeping just tries to open the door after knocking once. I went there to get away and have privacy and write. Which involved a lot of liquor..so that annoyance at 10am isn't really the best for that situation. But if... More

Scary and gross is what I can say. Mosquitos and flies in the room and an overloaded electrical outlet for the tv, fridge, microwave, and other appliances. There was no room phone and one iron and uneven ironing board for the entire motel. The room has two doors, one for a rear entrance, which wasn't locked and had a decent... More

We stayed in this little motel when we shopped at Grove City The room wasn't ready when we arrived nor did they have our reservation for the room. The lady at the desk spoke poor english which made it a challenge to understand each other. They gave us a room with a fidge that didn't really work as we discovered... More

My wife and I stayed here while on our way to visit relatives. The clerk at the front was nice. The room was old, mostly decor from the 1970's. The furniture (including the bed/mattresses) were pretty worn out. For the price, I might have given it two or three stars, but it was noisy all night long. There were a... More

MERCER PA - The Colonial Inn Motel is lodging is run by a smiling and pleasant family that lives on premises. The facility saw better days decades ago. Although the price (in May 2014) for a single queen was 30- to 50-percent lower than its franchised competitors on the other (Interstate 80) side of town, it has several drawbacks that... More

I am an attorney and I had a case in Mercer. I was traveling by myself so cost was a major factor. I got a super low rate through Expedia. The room was clean and comfortable. Complementary wifi was fast and readily accessible.

I stayed here for a single night while traveling for my business. I chose it because of its location and for the travel coupon I was able to use, which kept the total bill to $45. The gentleman (owner?) who checked me in was pleasant and helpful. He walked me to the room and turned the lights on for me.... More

When I went to the front desk to complain that I had seen a bug in the bathroom, I was hatefully told I was a lair. From the very beginning I was talked to like a dog. I was told if one drop of blood was found on the sheets I would have extra charges, If the furniture had any... More
