This hotel has a very nice pool and exercise area. Pool is quite large. Staff is very friendly. Room are mostly remodeled and comfortable. Hotel is a good value and rooms are in back away from roadway.

We are not fussy travelers. We always are ok with economy. But this place, oh this place. Our room appeared not to have been upgraded since 1970. Carpet was so matted and dirty, we never took our shoes off. Mildew in the shower stall. The TV had multiple extension cords all plugged together - shrieking "fire hazard"! No screens in... More

The motel is fine. It's confortable, and it meets the basic needs of most travelers. The fact that dogs are allowed is a definite plus. We've stayed here several times and we've been satisfied. We've never used the spa/pool/gym, but I guess that's an attraction.

The motel is very comfortable and clean. Things are a bit dated and the hallways need some attention. We didn't get a chance to use the spa. The staff was very nice! We would absolutely stay there again.

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 Not enough table room for the amount of space in room,Microwave and T.V. was very old and outdated.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.
