I've been coming to Ogunquit for 7 years. This was the first time without kids. Staying in the main building was terrific. Bed was soft and comfortable. Bathroom was new and renovated. Free Continental breakfast was amongst the best I've seen at a similar lodging. Homemade pastries, muffins, choc chip cookies etc. Atmosphere was terrific, with places to relax inside... More

We recently stayed here for an impromptu anniversary/birthday weekend. The location is ideal if you want to walk to shops & restaurants on the main road. Also on foot access to Marginal Way and Ogunquit Beach. The pool was great, clean & quiet. We went for a night swim and it cleared out around 8:30 and we had it to... More

Loved the room ... spacious ... good bed and good shower! The people at the desk went out of their way to attempt to help and be gracious. There were just a few minor details that would have been better (mens room by dining area would be out of paper towels and other minor details were a bit bothersome). Overall... More

This is our first time staying in Ogunquit. I was a little worried about this inn. When we first arrived girl at front desk was good. Gave us a map. Showed us to the room. Very professional. We stayed in the East building. The outside was a tad dated but inside was very, very nice. The room was big and... More

Historic Inn, Rambling front porch with seating on the street, Very walkable to town, it took us about 5 minutes to get there. The beach is about a 10 min walk. Lovely beach feel furnishings, sage and white colors, just went through a $4M renovation. Everything is clean and neat. Desk clerks very welcoming. Great location - central to everything.... More

We booked an overnight stay here based on the Trip Advisor reviews. We had a lovely room on the fourth floor (yes, it was air-conditioned and was much appreciated!) the front desk staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The inn is very convenient to the walking path (Marginal Way) along the ocean. We bought a bottle of... More

Recommend the Colonial Inn for a relaxing stay. There was a warm welcome on arrival. Location perfect for walking everywhere in town, on Marginal Way and to the beach. We stayed in the Main Inn, which has been renovated to a high standard. Coffee, soft drinks and cookies available throughout the day in the lobby. Did not use the pool,... More

Stayed here for 7 days in July 2 - July 9. The Hotel is very well kept with lovely grounds and public areas. Particularly like the porch with the rocking chairs, quintessentially American. Our room was in the annex. Room was a good size, meticulously clean with comfortable beds, great air con, small fridge and microwave and excellent Wifi. A... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Colonial Inn over the fourth of July weekend. It was our first time in Ogunquit, and we thought the location was just perfect. We were in walking distance to the beach, Perkins Cove and to watch the fireworks. The Inn itself was quite lovely. We stayed in the main building, which was very... 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
