Booked two months in advance and was not disappointed! Super clean rooms and comfortable beds! The pool was amazing and they even provided "noodles" for relaxing in the pool! Close to everything but not noisy! Good coffee in the lobby. Will definetly go back.

Positives: efficient check-in, the room was clean and quiet, with adequate a/c and wifi. Pillow wasn't too fat. Firm mattress. Negatives: overpriced. Our suite did not appear "newly renovated" as the sign promised, unless fresh caulk counts. Dinky bathroom, have to lean over the tub to close the door. Towels were small and thin. The "fitness room" appeared to be... More

Some rooms are still to be renovated and may have strong odor of a cleaner. Pool is very nicely temp controlled. Some rooms have a kitchenette which came in handy. Most have a fridge. About 35 minutes away from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

I called there and personally made a reservation for my husband and son - both adult males for a room with 2 double beds and was assured that is what they had. It was only a few hours before they arrived late at night (too late to find anything else). I had spoken with 2 different people within a short... More

We were visiting Arcadia Maine and the national park, found most of the hotels and motels in the area highly priced due to the season activity. Stopped in to check pricing here and it was less than $100 per night, and the girl at the front desk, Kelly Dane, was very helpful and supportive of our needs. The accommodations need... More

We spent two nights at the Colonial Inn on a trip to Acadia. The room is very clean and the price was about 150 per night. Our room looked like it was in the process of getting upgraded but not quite there. The beds were hard but comfortable. Bed spreads really old. Phone was from the 1980's. Bathroom very dated...

Affordable, clean, quiet, and easy to find. Would recommend and will stay again. Many upgrades since new owners have taken over. Pool is nice, front desk crew is friendly and very helpful. Owner has a neat car collection on display. Good overall experience.

During our road trip through Maine and Canada in 2015 we ended up here because all of the other hotels in town were booked. My wife did the reservation through the TripAdvisor app as we had for other places along the way, paid by credit card. When we arrived we told them we had booked but they said they had... More

Room was dirty. Front desk clerk rude & unprofessional....we just wanted to get away for the weekend. When we got there, we just wanted to get away from this place. Maybe ok for some. .. not for us. We're not fancy people at all, good thing! One of the few weekends me and my fiance both had off.
