We again spent a few days here tree weeks ago but this time we brought my mother-in-law. She'a a recovering widow and we thought Ogunquit would do her good. She loved the place and especially the Inn. They've done a few changes since our last time here and it's all for the better. The opened a small outdoor terrace to... More

My wife and I stayed at the Colonial Inn for a two day holiday recently. The Inn built about 1890 has been updated but retains some of the Victorian charm. The room we stayed in was small by most standards but was quiet, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is included and I am happy to say the coffee was excellent as... More

We stayed at the Colonial Inn just a week ago. It was our 4th visit and each time it seems to get better and better. We like to stay in the main inn, but there are other buildings that probably work best for families. The entire Inn has been renovated with lovely decor and lots of upscale amenities. The beds...

We just returned from a one night stay at The Colonial Inn. We have been to Ogunquit many times and usually stay the the same place, but thought we would try somewhere different. I am glad we did. We were in the East Building with 2 huge queen beds. It was extremely clean and the decor was pretty. The beds... More

We spend three nights at the Colonial Inn on our first visit to Ogunquit in years. We had a wonderful room - 408 - with a great view. Nice size room with a King Size bed and a good size bathroom. The Inn offers a complimentary Continental breakfast which you will want to enjoy on a porch of the patio... More

Sadly this inn was a terrible disappointment. I booked a room in the guest house room 504 from August 5 thru August 10. My girlfriend was going to join me, but had to back out. Fortunately for me she did, because the room was awful. The furniture was like something you find on the side of the road. The layout... More

This is the best kept secret in Ogunquit. In fact, I shouldn't be writing this as I want this place to myself. Clean, fresh and excellent service. We love this place. Rooms are wonderfully decorated, clean, roomy and the bathroom renovations are off the charts. We stay here every year and never disappointed.

My husband and I recently planned a rather impromptu getaway to Ogunquit. I have been visiting the area for the last 40+ years with my family and have numerous favorite places to stay. However, since this was rather last minute the regulars were booked which left me in search of somewhere new. Trip Advisor reviewers loved the Colonial Inn AND... More

My husband and I have stayed at the main inn three times. It is a charming building with a wrap-around porch and gorgeous hanging flower baskets. The rooms are so clean and comfortable. The location is about half way between Ogunquit Beach and Petkins Cove, so you can walk to all the local attractions and restaurants.

Upon check in we were greeted by the delicious scent of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. Yum ! In addition to the cookies we were welcomed to the Inn and given a tour of the public areas. As we checked into our room we were pleasantly surprised how simply beautiful it was. To our disappointment there was no mini-fridge. We... More

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
