For the record: I have been to nicer hotels during the Arab Spring. Some of those hotels had artillery shells in them, but the security was still better. The hotel is fairly far from anything. Coming form the turnpike, you are looking at about 10 miles of dark two-lane country roads, with plenty of deer to hit. The hotel is... More

I really wanted to like it here. Not possible. Filth inside (see photos) and the parking lot has thousands of cigarette butts just lying around. The room smells of disinfectant. Wireless only works near front desk. The rooms each have two doors. Twice as many lock problems. One positive thing is that the television works, and it has Dish Network,... More

I'm not one to complain and have never wrote a review before but the fact that we came here a month before and the rate was around 50 bucks and we came here tonight and got the same room with no cars here and they charged us almost 70 dollars. That wasn't the problem though because both of us were... More

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
