This is a beautiful hotel. From the outside, I can see why people hold weddings and other events at this hotel. It's absolutely beautiful. But from the outside, you would expect more from the hotel rooms. They are basic hotel rooms. A simple, 2-double bed hotel room with a bathroom. It was clean and there is no refrigerator or microwave.... More

So we went there on a Friday night for the all -you- can- eat prime rib with the potato bar, shrimp, and soup/salad. My husband liked the prime rib but I opted for the salmon on the Fantasy Salad. That was delish! We sat in a booth- had to listen to the door to the kitchen squeek and bang the... More

I'm on the road for business 80% of the year. Read most reviews on this hotel before arrival. I get that receptionist aren't very welcoming, but she pleasantly checked me in and went back to what ever she was doing online. The room was decent and bath kind of tight, but seemed clean enough. Lobby is wedding ready. House keeping... More

Came here to get away with my finance. We loved all the amenities. The place is super clean, staff are friendly. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool!!! Then we got ready and had a delightful meal at the Colonial Grill. Went back in the hot tub and then went to the bar and had a few drinks. This place... More

Stopped for an unplanned Lunch around 1 pm. The service was pretty special given the time of day over a holiday weekend. We both had the potato soup with bacon. Thick and tasty. I also had a deli turkey hoagie. Expected a half size, but ended up with enough to take home. Ambience was typical for a hotel restaurant, but... More

We spent one night for a wedding in a standard room. We had requested an in room refrigerator already cold for medicine storage. It wasn't there. They brought one, but it needed to cool down so blah blah we had to chase all over the hotel to find a place to keep the medicine and ice pack. Mind you, the... More

My husband and I checked in after dropping my daughter off at her summer program at Cushing Academy. The parking lot was pretty full but had plenty spots available. It appeared that they were setting up for an outdoor wedding. Check in was very fast, however I must agree with some of the other reviewers when they say that customer... More

We loved having our August 6th wedding at The Colonial and would highly recommend this as a venue. Our wedding was an amazing dream come true. Mary Whitman was our coordinator and she certainly made our wedding reception unforgettable. She was easy to work with and was so responsive! She would reply to my phone calls email questions sometimes within... More

We used the Colonial as a base for a family wedding that was actually held elsewhere. While the public parts of the hotel are very elegant, the more private areas aren't. The rooms are really quite spartan. If you have a room with two beds, there is hardly any space to move around. No refrigerator, not even any pictures on... More
