Lovely room, clean, comfortable beds. The pool is used as a health club as well as for guest use, it is being updated and the hot tub was currently not ready for use. All the swimming area is saltwater instead of chlorine; easier to maintain, and so much better for your body and your hair; Love it! The pool is... More

The room was very clean and updated and the clerks were very pleasant. The grounds were spacious and quiet and there were plenty of places to eat nearby. I only stayed one night while on my way home from another trip and would not hesitate to return again for a longer stay.

The room was very large (in fact almost too large given the furnishings) and a bit dated, but certainly comfortable enough, functional and quiet. My first impression was that the photographs looked better than the real thing, but that really didn't matter. We had a lovely stay and the bar/restaurant is great - but I agree with a prior reviewer... More

This is an older hotel being renovated by caring and committed new owners. Please don't let older keep you away. The Colonial is warm, inviting, has great beds and customized service. We especially LOVE the also newly owned Dandelion and Sage Restaurant attached to the hotel. A fabulous menu that is a tad pricey, but impeccably prepared, well presented, and... More

Room was very large and clean. Not enough table room for the amount of space in room,Microwave and T.V. was very old and outdated. Bathroom was recently redone, clean and plenty of hot water. Bed was new, comfortable and plenty of pillows and blankets. The lighting outside wasn't enough. On the corner of building; the lights were out and bushes... More

The outside doors to the balconies were badly chipped and dirty looking. Which made first impressions bad. However, the room itself, except for bad paint job in bathroom, was very clean and comfortable.

Website could not be any more misleading. The only accurate thing is that its been family owned sine 1975 (I am not sure if thats even true). Believe me when I say that everything in the room except the bed (ok), TV and mini fridge are fro 1975. Dirty carpet, 2 of the 4 lights did not work..just a mess.... More

Old,dingy,filfthy carpeting. Actual dirt on chair rail, crumbs under A/C and along side bed. Linens are clean, bed is adequate. However, missed urine stains on bottom of toilet, various dried white spots on carpet and chair seat...oh please let it be paint spatters. Put down towels at bedside, sat only on bed and touched only what was necessary. Front desk... More

What can I say? It was not as bad as to make us move out, but the Colonial Motel was the worst during our trip. Reception staff was nice and cheerful. The rooms were very large but in a rather flimsy building and, though not dirty, also did not appear particularly clean. We slept well in our beds. The breakfast... More

Good: The swimming pool, sauna, and hot tub are wonderful. The staff there was very kind and helpful. Defiantly the best part of this hotel. Bad: Rooms were muggy and smelled funny. I had a newly renovated room, but the carpet hadn't been changed. The furniture was very nice, but the carpet left much to be desired. Glad I only... More
