“Clean and basic accommodations”
Reviewed October 9, 2011

We were passing through and hoping to find an inexpensive but clean hotel, and this filled the need. The beds were firm but comfortable. This is a no-frills hotel: check in, stay, drop off your key, and leave. There was no coffee service in the office or room, and there was no breakfast. (There was an electric pot to heat water and make instant coffee or tea, but the pot was unappealing, so we didn't want to use it.) The host was friendly and accommodating. The grounds were maintained. We had a nice view from the window of the river in the back of the hotel. It was quiet at night, but the nearby road was noisy come wake-up time around 6:30.

Stayed here the night before an early fishing trip. There is an ice machine and a microwave available for use. There was also a refrigerator in the room.

Room Tip: If you'd like a view of the river, ask for one of the rooms at the back

In January 2011, we booked a room for July 2011 (6 months in advance) to coincide with French Woods camp visiting days. First, in about March, Smith's asked us to accept a smaller room, which we did. Then in mid-May they called and CANCELLED our reservation, telling us they were going to give our room to some "long-time" customers instead of us! This is outrageous behavior for any establishment and is particularly outrageous because it is now IMPOSSIBLE to find decent alternative lodging anywhere near camp for those dates. So French Woods parents -- and anyone else who wants to ensure they have a place to stay in Hancock -- AVOID Smith's Colonial Motel.

Stayed for the weekend with friends to do some Trout fishing in the Delaware River.
Booked 2 rooms for four people. Rooms where clean and fairly modern.
There are not very many amenities but a mini fridge, electric hot pot, instant coffee and an ice bucket. Great views of the Delaware from the backyard.
Good this hotel is there because there is only one other choice in town and it is pricey and not as good.
Clair and Ed will take care of you with a genuine smile.
If you want a clean place to hang your hat for a couple of days this is the place.

THe Smiths Colonial Motel is a short distance from the town of Hancock and is half the price of the Hancock House. It is clean, the managers are wonderful people, and they greet you with a smile. Few amenities to rave about, but LOVE the mini fridge in the room. No hair dryer or iron in the room but it doesn't matter.
