Wasn't sure what to expect but was disappointed. Needed to be cleaner; example - when we checked in the floor had not been vacuumed and had cherry stems and fried food on the carpet. Walls dirty, shower curtain liner had lots of mold, telephone hadn't been cleaned in a while. Took staff a whole day to get clean wash clothes... More

I reserved my 2 rooms over a year ago for the car show which is always held in August. I do this every year. Anita when she worked there always took good care of us, the new owners do not care about handicapped people. I stopped by two weeks ago and asked about my reservations and was told that I... More

We book this motel on a whelm, and for 99$ a night on weekdays I had my concerns about the motel, we knew nothing about the town or the motel so I wasn't expecting much. What we found was a gem we will certainly visit again :) The motel was clean, the service was great, and the staff was amazing!!!... More

We stayed during the weekend of the Colonial Beach Triathlon, which was conveniently located adjacent to the start. The hotel was centrally located to the (pebbly) beach and several restaurants. The bed was comfortable and clean. I was dismayed that the hotel wouldn't extend check-out time past 11am for athletes competing in the Olympic length tri. Quite a few guests... More

April is a gorgeous time to visit Colonial Beach. There are only a few motels, and the River Edge Inn is a great place to stay. It IS right on the river. The beach is lovely. It is a pebble beach, right outside the registration area. You can sit on the patio and relax. There is an osprey nest near... More

My husband and I stayed this past weekend for a quiet getaway in a small town. We are from Virginia Beach which is nothing but tourists and jammed packed with 20 somethings looking for nightclubs. A family member turned us on to Colonial Beach so we thought we'd give it a shot. The first night we stayed at a B&B... More

We arrived Christmas Eve night and received a warm welcome in a newly refurbished lobby. Because of the cold, blustery weather, were given a second floor room which is accessed through an interior lobby. First floor rooms open directly to the outside so, while we had to climb outside steps, the interior hallway helped to keep our room temperature constant... More
