“Worst Bed and Breakfast EVER”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2010

Should have looked at Tripadvisor reviews PRIOR to booking! We decided to book the Honeymoon Suite because we figured the room would be nicer. What a wreck the room was. Plus we got no breakfast offering for either of the two days we stays and were given no explaination why. After our first nights stay I wanted to check out but we decided that we might as well stay there because it was located downtown. We got back to our room around 230 that afternoon and SURPRISE the room was not made up! I would be amazed if this place gets ANY repeat business. Stay somewhere else.

We are planning our wedding and decided to give the Colonial Inn a trial run. Thank goodness we did. We booked one of the honeymoon suites. First, we couldn't find the entrance to the B&B and then finally saw the sign that told us to check-in in the diner. The greasy diner is your main entrance to the hotel. Then, we were led up a staircase covered with a disgusting old carpet and down a hallway with an old chair just covered with a piece of cloth to our room. The honeymoon suite could have been in a horror movie. It was incredibly small, and had coffee spills on the walls, sticky stuff on the floor by the bed (we had to bring out the bath rug and put it over the sticky area), corroded fixtures (sink in the room, drain in the tub). AND, the bathroom was out of a fifties movie, except worse. It was incredibly tiny and outdated, and every color of blue you could imagine. The floor, walls, toilet and tub were all a different unattractive color blue. Luckily the toilet seat was white. The vanity was falling apart and the area under the cabinet had lost its finish. The bottom of the tub was not clean. All in all, if we had showed up at this place on our wedding night, I would have cried and walked out.

We decided to stay over in Leesburg at the last minute. This Inn was built in the 1700's so it is historic and has the feel of a very old building. I thought it was comfortable, quiet and quaint. It fit our needs. It's not a big, new glossy hotel, instead it offers coziness, uniquness and history. So depending on what you're looking for...I would stay here again.

My wife and I had a great stay at the Colonial Inn. We enjoyed a nice dinner and evening at a local pub. The service overall was good at the hotel and it was clean. The location was excellent, located in downtown leesburg. The bed was extremely comfortable. The owner of the restaurant gave us a last minuite discount.

My husband & I decided to stay in this hotel because it is located in the downtown area. I must say it was a lovely experience! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a mom and pop feel. This isn't a big fancy new hotel. There is a relaxed and unstuffy atmosphere. The rooms were nice. The breakfast was delicious. Nothing beats the location either.

We woke up, had breakfast, and walked around the downtown area. Leesburg is a very cute little town. We recommend this place! Especially room #9.

We stayed over the weekend of May 19-20. We were in the "honeymoon" suite. What a joke (on us). They quoted us a price, and then added $25 for a second person! The "jacuzzi" was a very dirty regular bathtub/shower with some jets that we didn't try. The broken light fixture in the bathroom and the circa 1987 TV/VCR with lousy reception were really "special treats" as well.

The room was very run down, and we had to check in at the restaurant on the first floor (which did not serve anything close to a "gourmet" breakfast - just usual travel fare that was edible for the most part).

It was without a doubt the most overpriced and run down "inn" that I have ever stayed in. Do yourself a favor - don't stay here unless you have no other options within 25 miles or so.

  • Liked — It was close walking distance to a nice restaurant, but nothing on site
  • Disliked — A tie between the horrible room and the horrible service

I have never seen a greater disconnect between a web site’s description of a place and the disappointing reality. It boasts “Persian and Oriental rugs.” Whatever that was on the floor was filthy. The room is pretty crummy. The bathroom was acceptable. Anyone who finds this place “charming” should have his head examined. It should go for $35 a night, not $125. The night I was there all the modern motels were filled and only three of the ten rooms at Colonial Inn were filled, for good reason. The touted “full gourmet breakfast with authentic 18th-century cuisine,” included in the price, was inedible. I had to go elsewhere to get something to eat.
The people who work there are friendly.
