“Very pleasant staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The motel is very comfortable and clean. Things are a bit dated and the hallways need some attention. We didn't get a chance to use the spa. The staff was very nice! We would absolutely stay there again.

Lovely room, clean, comfortable beds. The pool is used as a health club as well as for guest use, it is being updated and the hot tub was currently not ready for use.
All the swimming area is saltwater instead of chlorine; easier to maintain, and so much better for your body and your hair; Love it! The pool is big enough instead of these teeny pools I often find at hotels. It is set up for lap swimming only so if you have small children and want to use the pool it might not work for you. The staff was very accommodating finding us locations of local attractions and so forth.

The room was very clean and updated and the clerks were very pleasant. The grounds were spacious and quiet and there were plenty of places to eat nearby. I only stayed one night while on my way home from another trip and would not hesitate to return again for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Try to stay to the front of the area for better parking near the room.

The room was very large (in fact almost too large given the furnishings) and a bit dated, but certainly comfortable enough, functional and quiet. My first impression was that the photographs looked better than the real thing, but that really didn't matter. We had a lovely stay and the bar/restaurant is great - but I agree with a prior reviewer that it is a bit pricey. Staff were friendly and helpful.
We did discover that it is cheaper to book on line than just fronting up though…..

This is an older hotel being renovated by caring and committed new owners. Please don't let older keep you away. The Colonial is warm, inviting, has great beds and customized service. We especially LOVE the also newly owned Dandelion and Sage Restaurant attached to the hotel. A fabulous menu that is a tad pricey, but impeccably prepared, well presented, and flavorful dishes justify the price. We love arriving at the hotel late saturday afternoon, grabbing a bottle of great wine and a hunk of cheese from just plain Hannorford's grocery right across the street, settling in front of the T.V. for a bit of collegiate Saturday football , then finding our way to Dandelion and Sage for a mid evening, leisurely, utterly delicious meal----after which we can't remember any of the week's negatives!

Room was very large and clean. Not enough table room for the amount of space in room,Microwave and T.V. was very old and outdated. Bathroom was recently redone, clean and plenty of hot water. Bed was new, comfortable and plenty of pillows and blankets. The lighting outside wasn't enough. On the corner of building; the lights were out and bushes made it a little unsafe. Front desk personal are friendly and helpful.

The outside doors to the balconies were badly chipped and dirty looking. Which made first impressions bad. However, the room itself, except for bad paint job in bathroom, was very clean and comfortable.
