I stayed 2 nights booked in advance on booking site. The exterior looked like a construction site people smoking in front of all the rooms. The beds, sheets and covers looked like they were not cleaned since 1980. They did not clean or makeup my room after the first night. I rater sleep in my car than stay there again.... More

Room was dirty. Stains on the carpet, phone was dirty, dust, bathroom in poor condition. Will not stay here again. Poor condition. Front desk gentlemen was friendly and helpful, rooms clearly need improvement.

The fitness center was the reason I chose this hotel and when we got there the clerk informed us that it was out of order and being remodeled. It was frustrating to me, but I was happy that the guy didn't lie to me to get me to stay there like other hotels have done. The rooms were very clean... More

My room was clearly not cleaned other than the bed being made before I checked in. The gentleman at the front desk was friendly and I was having a decent experience before I entered my room. The room not only needs to be cleaned but needs some improvements.

Stopped on a rainy night - it was a mistake. Housekeeping was not up to par. Lamp without a light bulb, TV not connected, no drawer pulls on the dresser. The final straw was in the morning the coffee maker pot was missing.

I stayed here during the Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough. Clean. Comfortable beds. The usual motel breakfast. The towels could be a bit more "generous", but I will stay there for the 2015 Festival.

We had initially booked our stay after seeing an ad on Priceline.com. Upon further investigation I noticed they had not flexed their rates up to reflect the event in the area like the other hotels had done. So I booked it at the EXTREMELY low rate of $77 per night and at first I was worried they may want to... More

I'm not usually very picky about where we stay. This hotel was cheap and close to the family we were visiting. Colonial Heights is also usually a very nice area. But this hotel was a huge mistake. It was dirty. There were spiders in our bathroom and all the faucets were rusty and gross. The bed sheets didn't look clean... More

OK, this is not the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in but I've paid more and got less. Disclaimer: It was late in the evening, I'd been driving all day and wanted a place near the interstate with a place to eat nearby. The Colonial Inn filled my simple requirements. Yes, I was lead to believe it was a Best... More
