We booked the Colony for two nights in July 2013, as we were visiting family in the area. This was our first experience with the Colony, and it certainly won't be our last. Our room was spacious (with two double beds), very clean and very comfortable. The separate dining area and full refrigerator and dining table was a welcome extra.... More

I make the trip to Bangor three to four times a year, if not more, and I always stay at the Colony Motel. It is so clean and comfortable. Steve and Lynn are wonderful people who always make me feel welcomed. It is truly personal service. See the picture below to see the hand made decoration on a gift because... More

Very nicely decorated, comfortable beds. Motel was easy to find as it was on the main road. Even being on highway there were absolutely NO bothersome street noices. Nice evenings rest. Excellent spot to stop on way to Raneley Mtns if coming from East coast area (Lubec). Would definately book again if in the area. Owners were friendly and helpful... More

You might not think twice about stopping at the Colony Motel. It's a small motel with an unpretentious exterior but exceptionally clean with plenty of creature comforts at an exceptional price. Our two room suite with very comfortable queen bed and full kitchen was $100 per night (plus tax). Our room didn't have a telephone, (I suspect that this is... More

Lovely old motel, spotless clean and rooms are large. The owners are very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied. It is also conviently located to both Bangor and/or the I-95 if you are going further

Spent two great nights in a very clean, fresh smelling, spotless, spacious room, plus all the little extras that made our stay as pleasant as possible. Will stay again any time I am in the area and highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a little taste of home away from home.

My husband and I stayed here twice--on the way to Canada and on the way back. Everything about it was perfect--owner, beds, location, setting, etc. Highly recommend. And make sure that you eat ALL your meals at the Eagles Nest Restaurant. We had both breakfast and dinner there. Great service and food. Not the least touristy--truly where the locals eat--and...

This was our second time staying at the Colony Motel and it is such a gem. Very well maintained property with large, spotless rooms. The owners obviously work very hard to make sure that their guests have a good stay, and the little mini chocolate bars and bottled waters were a very nice touch. Don't bother with the chain hotels!... More

Very gracious hosts and a spotlessly clean room certainly merit the top ranking. When in the Bangor area we'll not bother with the chain motels again. I have already recommended to a brother of mine and his family for a stay. PS Don't tell too many people or all the rooms may be taken when we're looking again. A. Kennedy... More
