          Patricia, thanks for the review. We did some renovations in 2012, 2013, and 2014, but seeing as the Colonial Inn is an older property, there are always things that can be improved. The limited parking is sometimes a hassle, but we do have the overflow...More

          The Colonial Inn is reasonably priced but its age is showing. Shower was small and moldy. Also if your party has more than one car the other ones have to be parked down the street about two blocks away.More

          Is there an indoor pool that we can use during our stay next week?

          No, it's an outdoor pool that will probably open in early May. You have availability to the YMCA which is close by. The Colonial provides free access to its guests to the Y.
