We booked this motel because other reviews mentioned the cleanliness. If you want a corporate, cookie cutter motel/hotel, this is not it, but if you want charm and a good price (and very clean) this is a good booking.

We called Saturday 2/15/13 to rent a room for that evening. The owner himself handled our reservation. Even though we did not arrive until almost 10:30 pm, the people in the office were very pleasant and accommodating!! Our room was ready with the heat at a perfect level as it was extremely cold that night. We stayed in room 3... More

It is hard to rate motels when you stay in so many of them, and there are so many of them that are average. But every once in a while you hit one that stands out. Either it looks like a place for a Queen or King to stay in, or the service is far beyond the average, or you... More

On Saturday 10/12/13 my family and I were visiting our daughter who just had a baby in Erie. We were not thinking that getting a room would be a problem. And ran into no available rooms in the immediate area. Upon calling this motel the owner had just what we needed and he held the room for us until we... More

Spent three nights in Room 5 and totally enjoyed the accommodations. The owner/operators of the property were excellent in providing any needed support and are very knowledgeable about the NorthEast wine country. Highly recommended for the clean conditions and ability to take advantage of preparing your meals as if you were at home. Very close to some of Erie's best... More

We arrived hot and weary from along day in the heat and were properly given our room keys and was happy to have great air conditioning great us upon opening our... More

No problems at all, called to make the reservations about a month ago, check in and check out was simple. Clean, quiet and easy to find. This was just a stop over on our way to western New York, we would use this motel again. Close to local restaurants and the lake.

We stayed here when we were just passing through and we had a great stay. The location is nice, near the lake, and it seems to sit off by itself along the road. It's quiet, scrupulously clean and the proprietors are very accommodating. It was late and they made a call to the Freeport Restaurant for us so that we... More

Generally, accommodations that are clean, safe AND affordable are very difficult to find. If the price is decent, it's usually lacking in other areas. The Colonial Motel was everything good wrapped up into one, and then to get a kitchenette was just a huge unexpected bonus! The word "charming" was used in another review, and that's a perfect description! We... More

Stayed there for the 4th of July week in 2012. Decor my be dated but is in great shape and super clean! One word comes to mind. Charming. If you are looking for a quiet get away this is the place to stay. Close to the lakefront and park.
