“Cute, good price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

I liked the look of the room we stayed in. Kind of reminded me of a cabin. We stayed in Room 1, and the wireless internet didn't work in the room, we had to sit outside to use it. The cable didn't work very well. We had to play around with it and wiggle the cables around.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2011

Booked this Inn for a family trip last summer and we stayed in one of the suites. The gentleman on the phone was very friendly and accommodated our late check in. The room was very spacious, well equipped and extremely clean. One could tell that the management pays close attention to the cleanliness of the place. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The room was equivalent to the big franchise hotels in the area even better but for a much reasonable rate! Our stay was very peaceful and there is an open ground by the building which was good for the kids to play. The staff was very welcoming and took care of our needs. Definitely recommended if you are looking for a clean, comfortable, quiet place to stay with family or friends, and not wanting to pay the price of those other overpriced franchise hotels in the area.

I'm a 19 year old with my friend went around all the motel's and hotel's to find a good place to stay because we had lot's of time. Colonial Inn was our last stop. we were finally happy for a good rate. Firstly, at check in the lady at the desk asks if we are here to party? We said no, we just need a cheap place to stay. I had a lodging card with me which she tried to put through and it wouldn't work, I then went outside to call the lodging card to see what happened, didn't have time to finish my conversation with them, the desk lady came outside and told us to leave the room had just been rented... shortly thereafter, we found out that the room wasn't rented, she just didn't want us there. The reason for my review is to let everyone know that customer service at this hotel was horrible and unacceptable!

The friendly management mentioned in another review must have sold during the past 2 years. This character was as unaccommodating as you can get. Not all the used towels were replaced, and he gave hell to our kids for playing games outside in the snow but said nothing to the yahoo snowmobilers whooping it up late at night. Nice fireplace, but this doens't make it a good value. Overpriced. Few amenities. Not even a canteen for breakfast.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2008

We were looking for a place to stop over on our way to Northern Ontario. This motel's management goes out of their way to be accomodating. We were a late arrival, which was no problem. I contacted the motel a couple of times, concerned about weather/arrival time. The owner gave me excellent directions and was very flexible about arrival time. We stayed in the newer units, which were very comfortable and extremely clean. We will stay at the Colonial Fireside again.

  • Liked — the great personal service we received
