1/2 the price minimum of what you could be paying. Slightly East of town, owners are on site and super folks. Well done. This will be our ONLY place to stay when visiting. Was here during the annual cribbage tournament. Nice rooms, comfy and quiet.

Stayed the weekend and will always stay here when in Walla Walla. Great character in a classic motel. Everything well managed. Rooms clean and well stocked with thick towels. Friendly host and beautiful gardens to relax at the end of a busy day. Thanks Colonial Motel.

We normally stay at chain motels with Trip Advisor recommendations. This is not a chain but it is a nice motel with a great and helpful owner. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. Our room had a new mattress and we had our best night sleeping here. Small but adequate bathroom. All the other amenities are there except breakfast. There... More

I lived in Walla Walla when very young, and remember seeing the Colonial Motel then. For a recent trip back, my brother and I decided to get a reservation there rather than with a chain motel. Room was clean, had air-conditioning (it was 104 during our stay), it was quiet, and the local owners were very friendly. It was also... More

The Colonial Motel is east of town on busy E. Isaacs Avenue with services nearby. Its owners live on site, they're friendly and helpful, and the rooms are squeaky clean with lots of nice touches. For example, cotton blankets and white bedspreads like your grandmother's guest room (no standard-issue hotel bedspreads here); GLASS drinking glasses; a porch light; our room... More

We really liked this old-fashioned motel. The beds, pillows and linens were all so comfortable, better than the higher-priced hotel we had been in prior to arriving in Walla Walla - loved the real cotton sheets. We had room #2. It was spacious and had the necessary amenities. We recommend it to travelers who want a clean, peaceful place to... More

"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
