I'm always very happy when I can find hidden gems like The Colonial Inn. You can really see how much time and money they spent in renovating this old Inn. The rooms are really nicely finished. The bathrooms will match any of the large and expensive hotels around the world. So much time was spent in all the fine details.... More

We were in town recently for a wedding and several of our family members also stayed at the Inn. First, everyone who works at the Inn could not have been nicer to us during our stay. Everyone went out of their way to make us feel welcome and it was greatly appreciated. The rooms are lovely and we looked forward... More

We spent one night at the Colonial Inn and enjoyed it very much. The room was cheerful, clean and had a comfortable bed. The staff was pleasant & offered helpful suggestions about the area. It is located near Marginal Way and close to town. It is a real advantage being able to walk around town. I'm not usually a fan... More

Renovated hotel sparkles and shows age at same time. Spacious, airy common room contrasts with narrow hallways with slightly sagging floors. Rooms are smallish with no seating besides bed and a bench under TV. I moved the bench beside the bed and used a decorative bolster to accommodate seated TV viewing. Hotel is very clean and staff is personable, Location... More

Nice location within walking distance of everything in Ogunquit. We had a second level balcony room. Quiet, clean and comfortable accommodations. Friendly staff. Would have been nice to have a hot breakfast option. Reasonably priced (after Labor Day). I would stay here again.

The Colonial Inn is beautiful. As soon as I walked in I new it was going to be a a wonderful place to stay. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Our room was 302 which overlooked Shore Road but we could also see the ocean. The room was clean and bright and the bed was so comfortable. I get up... More

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and available, they were able to arrange for our early arrival. We enjoyed the breakfast and the coffee was good. We thought the room and the lobby were very clean and nice looking. The bed was comfortable. The location is good. We would definitely stay here again.

I spent 3 days here with my daughter. I like the location. Within walking distance of downtown, the beach, restaurants and the Marginal Way is just steps away. There is a pool and a hot tub which i did not use. Very nice lobby and porch with many chairs to relax in. The free continental breakfast is ok. Nothing great,... More

Clean, bare minimum/ no frills hotel. Great for an overnight stay, and the hotel is super close to marginal way (about 100 meters away). Reasonably priced too. There is a separate building with additional rooms adjacent to the hotel pictured, which is very "motel looking"- This is the location we stayed in. Like I said initially- clean, bare minimum and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The last of the grand hotels of Ogunquit, the Colonial Inn has provided shelter and genuine Maine hospitality to travelers for over 125 years. Today, having undergone a major historical renovation and with new ownership and management, the Colonial Inn steps forward to reclaim its place among top hotels in the heart of Ogunquit. Accommodations at the Colonial Inn are comprised of 62 rooms spread throughout four different buildings, offering a variety of room configurations which can suit guests’ preferences or requirements, whether a single traveler, couple, family or group. The hotel’s Main Inn has been reconfigured and enhanced by taking the previous count of 44 rooms down to 28 rooms, several with water views. The end result is bigger guest rooms that afford a first-class experience with more of the comforts of home. Most rooms in the hotel – and every room in the Main Inn itself – boast a king bed and a coffee maker, all with new furnishings and décor. ... more   less
