We stayed at the Colonial Inn for a Nascar race in Bristol, which is about 20 minutes away. Check in was simple, the gentleman at the counter was super nice and told us of all the restaurants nearby who offered discounts by showing your room key. The hotel is an older property and had it's quirks. The bathroom sink drained... More

You get what you pay for. The room was less than comfortable. First sign was the leaky faucet in the bathtub. I pushed down the shower button, and red/rusty/brown water came flowing out. The bathtub was not clean. The phone did not work. There wasn't a coffee pot for the coffee maker. The "fitness room" does not exist. There wasn't... More

We booked this hotel for a couple of our construction workers that were doing a project in the area and needed a decent place to rest and relax. However this place was beyond nasty, the shower curtain would not stay up, the tub looked like it had never been washed and was filled with rust and mold in the corners.... More

Colonial Inn was recommended by a staff member at the Tennessee welcome center. I was told upfront it was not the "Ritz," but a reasonable, comfortable older motel. And it was. The room was clean, some of the furniture worn and showing age, but otherwise a decent accommodation with all the expected amenities. The one staff member I met was... More

This is your average motel when on the move. The room and bathroom were clean, if not very new or tastefully decorated. Equipment (fridge, iron) was in good condition and the bed was comfortable. In the morning, we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast, although it mostly consisted of the usual oversweet fare of muffins, biscuits and waffles.

As I checked around 8:30 and there was no reason for me to check the bathroom, I was stunned the next morning when I went to shower. I hopped in to see a bar of soap on the ledge. Not a big deal, someone forgot to pick up a used bar of soap. Gross, but tolerable. Then I closed the... More

Overall I am very satisfied with this inn. The rooms looked somewhat dated, but they were extremely clean and comfortable. The beds were perhaps the most comfortable and plush that I have ever slept upon and I had a great night's sleep. The furnishings were in very good shape and the carpet seemed nice and clean. The room smelled very... More

I recently booked a room through this site, attracted by the location and the price. The rooms were nice! I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the bed was, and how nice the furniture was. Housekeeping was very attentive, ensuring we had clean towels and extra coffee for our two night stay. Its close to plenty of great restaurants and... More

I would only use this second rate hotel as the last resort, as in my case. The first thing that happen was that the night clerk quoted me a price over the phone and when I went to sign in he tried to up the price. The second incident was when I went back to the office to get more... More
