It's about as basic as you're going to get. We were just looking for a place to sleep before getting back on the road the next morning. My family of 5 shared a room with 2 queen size beds for $70. There was an old blurry TV, and a mini fridge and microwave that seemed new. Had we realized that... More

I am not sure how anyone could say this place was a nice and clean little motel. The room I stayed in the mattress was horrible. All the fixtures were badly worn, tiles cracked and carpet in very bad condition. Several people posted that the TV had over a 100 channels. My TV was at least 20 years old and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property. We took over this property last year and began renovations on a room by room basis. Unfortunately, being this is an older property, and we are a "mom and pop" business, this is a lengthy process. I am very sorry that you must have been in a... More

Set back from the road we found this quaint little motel. Exactly what we were looking for. We needed a two night retreat. It's an older facility. It has everything you need. Fridge and microwave were a plus. Great price.

We went in the "off season" This motel is an older one. It doesn't have the luxuries of the higher priced motels. But we just needed a place to sleep before starting our adventure on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Colony House Motel is at the beginning of the Parkway. The location is perfect. The scenery is beautiful. We liked this... More

This is a great motel! It's nothing fancy but the people are friendly and so is Snoopy, the resident dog. If you're prissy and want like-new carpeting, new furnishings, 100 TV channels, then move on. But if you can appreciate an older motel with friendly people and a good price...no bedbugs...clean...in a great location, then this is the place for... More

This motel is extremely dirty and when I asked to check out and if a refund was possible after only 1.5 hours they said no refunds. I left anyway as I would've paid not to stay there. Details: The bathroom sink faucet did not work. There was no running water. There was a dead bug on the bathroom floor. The... More

This older roadside motel is located very close to Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway. The outside is clean and well kept. My double bed room was clean, beds a bit soft but OK, decent TV, microwave, small refrigerator, free LD. Nice woman checked us in and said her family just bought the motel 3 weeks ago although they are... More
