The staff are very friendly and accommodating. There is a fantastic Thai restaurant within walking distance. Each room has a rocking chair out on the porch and it was a relaxing place to rest and read. I would definitely stay here again. We stayed for two nights and everyday the manager would stop by to see that everything was okay... More

We had a great experience here.I am VERY picky about a clean room and this place met my expectations! Everyone was very pleasant. We will definitely stay here again! If you stay here you also need to eat at Ms Lois' Restaurant!

Room was clean, staff was friendly and attentive. Price was a fair price, and roughly half of the price of competition. Room had a fridge and microwave, ice on site as well as snack machines. Upon check out, one member of management gave the grand kids each a pack of crackers.

The room was a standard non-smoking room. It was spotless and clean and smelled so fresh. The grounds were exceptionally well kept. It was a quiet and nice place to stay. I would stay here anytime and will stay here when we make a trip back to this area.

We stayed at the Colonial Inn with Mr. Patel as the owner. The room was extremely reasonably priced and clean and up to date with the TV and satellite TV. The carpets were freshly shampooed in our room the day we came into town. We will definitely be staying there again next year when we come up for vacation. I... More
