"A hidden gem" is how one area winery described the Colonial Motel to me. Yes, it takes you back a few years in style and decor, but it's clean, quiet, a bit removed from the hubub downtown but still close to everywhere in Walla Walla you want to go. The owners/operators were super friendly and helpful, with recommendations for breakfast... More

We wanted to spend a little time exploring Walla Walla. This was a lovely, modest place to stay. Comfortable bed, very clean and quiet. The owners were very helpful in getting us oriented to places to see and where to dine.

The Colonial is nothing fancy but it is clean and comfortable and the owners couldn't have been nicer. Excellent beds, spacious room, clean and well equipped bathroom (with a tub, not a shower stall) with plenty of good-quality towels, very quiet. We had one of the bigger rooms, I think, and it was equipped with a fridge/microwave (behind a door... More

Probably the most reasonably priced motel in Walla Walla, I checked out others near downtown. You can tell that these folks take quality and hospitality seriously. The room amenities, towels, bed, sheets, etc., were all of a much higher caliber than you would expect from your average motel. So enjoy a pleasant surprise. Mike G

My wife and I stayed at the Colonial after flying our plane into the Walla Walla airport. It's just as described in the reviews below. We enjoyed our stay and will come back again. As an added bonus, the owner gave us a lift to the airport when we left on Sunday morning. Great people!

Are you traveling to see the sights or to see the hotel? If you just need a good place to sleep, this is it. John, the owner, gave us valuable suggestions on the best places to see around town according to our interests. However, it was so relaxing to talk to him that we just unwound by the garden area...

We'd stayed at an inexpensive motel in Walla Walla last year, and were very underwhelmed. Looked at the reviews on Trip Advisor, and opted for the Colonial Motel, even though it wasn't downtown where we'd planned to eat. When we checked in, the host was very friendly and helpful, and provided us with some great restaurant recommendations for walking distance.... More

As many others have said, this is an old motor court motel from the late '40's that has been well maintained by the owners. Their son, who grew up there, is in the process of taking over the day to day operation. We can tell that he is working very hard to make it an enjoyable place to stay. As... More
