Very Clean and service was great. We stayed here one night while traveling from Florida to Maggie Valley, NC. The owners are very helpful, honest, and gave great recommendations. First time ever that we stayed at a place that the owners called us when they found something left in the room after we left. The rooms are old fashion however... More

My wife and I decided to see what it was like to stay at an old fashion motel. TripAdvisor said this was a good choice in that category. The is a family owned business. The room was clean and bathroom was as well. This is a dated property as far as furniture, but the bed was comfortable. We had a... More

The motel room rate was reasonable. The room was very clean. The staff were very nice and helpful. Finally, there was an outstanding Thai restaurant (Thai Paradise) directly across the street from the motel. We would definitely stay here again.

the Colonial inn was our port in the storm last night - a pleasure to find a comfortable, cozy, very affordable hotel when we had to suddenly stop because of the weather. Very nice people. Free Wifi. Would stay here again.

This place was clean, cozy and comfortable, not to mention very affordable. It is in a great location for venturing out to several gem mines and waterfalls. The scenery in this area is spectacular! We will definitely be returning here. The people who own and operate this place are very polite and helpful.

As a truck driver I only see a motel whenever I break down. I don't expect much from a room but I was well pleased with the room and services I received. The room was clean and in good shape. Staff and management was kind and courteous. A member of staff even drove me to my truck to get something... More

This is definite an older motel BUT CLEAN. Small bath room; but, it was squeaky clean. Corners cleaned out New silicone and older tile sparkled. Bed wasn't top of line but comfy enough for good night sleep. Quiet. Safe I particularly loved pink rocking chairs against periwinkle blue paint.

It was basic that about all you can say. It was getting late and we needed a place to stay. It cost as much as the nicest place we stayed on our trip and it was barely acceptable. It was very dated. The sign no pets but the people in the next room had a dog that kept barking.

My wife and I stayed here for one night on October 26th. We found this place to be clean, friendly and even smelt good. The man that was on duty was informative and as friendly as can be. He even ran after us as we left to give us a pillow that we forgot to take out of the room.... More

Needed a Pet-Friendly hotel while touring the foliage of NC. Everything was fine at this small hotel and they welcomed my dog. Nice experience and price was right. The room was a nice size and parking convenient right in front. Staff was very friendly and room was clean. Would stay there again.
