We stayed in an older room that had seem some improvements, but like other reviewers have noted, the addition of tile, etc., to an otherwise dirty and tired bathroom is a waste. Many different molds have flourished in this room, I'm afraid and I was kept awake by the variety of odors present. We wondered what was under all that... More

The fact that it states " Family owned since 1972" well it may not have been the same family I'm really not sure however I felt that everything was just amazing! We stayed 1 night & I highly recommend the suites. I believe that this place will only improve over the next year. They started remodeling the indoor pool/sauna workout... More

This motel is very tired. I last stayed here a few years ago and from all accounts things have not improved. The restaurant is always "under new management" and the "locally owned" motel does not have a local owner that is ever available. Browse Trip Advisor, Trivago or the local VT Living websites and find other Brattleboro area hotels. The... More

The room was clean but the age of the decor made it difficult to fully realize it was clean. Bathroom was recently remodeled and it pains me to see that they spent money on a renovation that they won't get their money out of. MDF baseboards in the bathroom and a new toilet that rocked on the floor just has... More

The Colonial Motel sign stated it was family owned, but the staff revealed that it had not been the case for years. As was stated in another review, get ready for 1972! The motel was very old and run-down, but there were a multitude of workers working to make repairs, fresh paint, and landscape. Unfortunately, it was evident that the... More

This motel has a number of worrying reviews, so we were nervous before our stay. But my friends and I were happy enough with our stay. The location is good - minutes away from shops, restaurants and bars. The rooms were very spacious and the bed was HUGE! The bathroom, while nothing special, did its job. The room (and the... More

Dirty, rundown motel. The linens were stained, the cable kept freezing (interesting trying to watch a movie, although you have time to discuss what just happened), when someone walked by the second floor room it was very loud and sounded like they were above you, there was a hole in the outside balcony covered by a rug (Huh), get the...

We had no hotel reservations and called because one of the locals said this is a good place to stay. The person at the desk said they had no vacancies so we continued our search to no avail, so we decided to continue our search. We then decided to go there to see if they knew of any other hotels...

I am writing this to try to save other people the aggravation I went through. I booked this motel by the pictures I saw on line. They made it look nice and clean. When I arrived the receptionist was pleasant and helpful. I then got to my room and it was nothing like I saw in the pictures. The room... More

We have stayed at the Colonial twice on different occasions. The rooms have been clean and quiet and the first time we were in a HUGE room--easily half the size of my house---and the second in a smaller but still nice room. For us it is a good half way stop if leaving for Boston in the afternoon. Since Brattleboro... More
