The people at the front desk made accommodations for our late arrival after check-in was closed. They had the rooms... More

Just was myself for one night. Front desk clerk was helpful and pleasant. I stayed in the "annex" in back. Room was clean, and quiet. Good location near Ellsworth and on road to Acadia.. Would stay there again, and I do go to that area every other year.

The front desk clerk was very unprofessional and was inappropriately dressed. She had on a swimsuit with a cover up. Her cleavage was very exposed. She had on more than enough make up. I have worked in several hotels in the Bar Harbor and Ellsworth area in the years past, including the Colonial, and we would not even have considered... More

There is a Thai restaurant attached which was very good. There is also a firepit and chairs way out back With a barbeque grill for the guests use. There is... More

We stayed for 2 nights during a recent visit to Maine. The staff, especially Becky, was very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The indoor pool was fun for all! Just a short drive to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Would definitely stay here again.

The suite we stayed in was very big with a full-sized fridge, kitchenette and standing bar. There was a flat screen in each bedroom so the girls and... More

My stay at The Colonial Inn was extremely relaxing and pleasant. The rooms are very clean and the pool / work out area is a huge bonus!
