We stayed here because it was close to the camp grounds and our motor home was in service. It was old, but clean and friendly. We always bring our own sheets and pillows and blanket wherever we stay. Lucy, the owner, couldn't have been nicer and more helpful! For a reasonably priced room on a holiday weekend, you can't beat... More

I am very thankful for Lucy-the owner. She has helped out when my son had nowhere to stay. The rooms are fine, the service was excellent. Yes, there are people that live there-but understand, there are multiple reasons WHY they live there. My son has used Colonial Inn several times-and he will probably return there since it is very convenient.... More

I used to live in Jackson and I come back quite often to visit friends and never thought about staying here because of there notorious reputation. I was forced to stay here because everything in the area was full. When I walked in the lobby I was a little shocked, the lobby looked freshly remolded and nothing like I remember.... More

The rooms are very nicely remodeled with wall to wall tile in the showers and bath and the rooms have a fresh feel to them. The owner is very nice and stays very busy putting all her time into making this a pleasant place to stay. There are 40" plus flat screen tv's, Showtime is one of the channels. There... More

This place really makes me wonder what they are trying to pull. If anyone looks at the pictures, the management's ones are exactly the same as the traveler's photos. I will be traveling to Michigan in September and am going to make a special trip and go out of my way to inspect this place to see if they really... More

Worst Stay ever, if I could of just said the 2 words I really wanted to in this review, it would say...Bed Bugs! Besides the fact they charged $150 per night for this dump, is beyond nuts. Stay far far away from this place as you can!

The room had freshly painted. With flat screen TV's, free Wi-Fi, free cable. People at the front desk were very helpful, always... More
