We arrived by car and found parking in the back. The building is an amalgam of old and new buildings. We followed the instructions on a sign that directed us to the front desk. We got to the front desk and we were immediately checked in and shown to our room. Our room was upstairs. The curious thing was that we walked one flight of stairs from the front desk and arrived on the third floor where our room was located. But, if we walked out using another set of stairs closer to our room, we actually walked down three flights of stairs! The room was not large, but not small either. We had a queen bed and there was more than enough room for our luggage and the closet was a good size. The view from the window was a view of a street and a church. I tried to use the air conditioner, but I couldn't get it to turn on so I opened the windows. The restroom was small, but there was enough room for our toiletries. The shower was a good size and the shower was very good. We drove away and visited Walden Pond. That was a highlight for us! We returned, parked and went for a walk around Concord. We first walked to a cemetery where we visited Hawthorne's, Alcott's, and Emerson's gravesites! We subsequently walked to a greek pizzeria before going to a local ice cream shop. The residential architecture was impressive. Before returning to the room for the night, we went to the hotel's pub and drank some drafts and had a good conversation with the bartender. The bed was very comfortable and we slept soundly even though we were facing a busy side street. The next morning we had breakfast at the hotel restaurant. The food was tasty and the prices were fair.

We got a cottage for 2 days. We cared more about the town than the place, but we still need to sleep. Cottage 36 is in the 1st floor and we liked the old style home. However a 7am we were woken up by the family on the upstairs cottage, with their missed behaved child running around, and we can clearly hear their every conversation, to an embarrassing extent.
The day prior we woke up early and in the night drank and wanted some sleep on our last day here. Told the front desk, said they would call them to keep it down, they obviously never did. I didn't knock on their door and told the lady I heard her say what color her Bra is and that the kid needs some real parenting because we were leaving that day.
We liked the cottage, but not worth the price of the old furnishings and lack of comfort, and certainly not Sharing a life with some weird family. There is also this metal tapping sound in the 1st 2 bed room of cottage 36 whenever the water is used. I think that's what it is, irritating to sleep with. Didn't tell the front desk, they wouldn't care anyways.

Stayed 4 nights 4/17/14-4/21/14 over Patriots Day Weekend. Room 204 in the newer part of the Inn. Ate in the Liberty Tavern three times. Here to explore Revolutionary War history in the area and experience the Patriots Day (weekend) reenactments and events that take place annually in Concord and Lexington. We were not disappointed!

The room was clean and well attended. On the small side, but we found that charming for the setting. Loved eating in the casual side of the inn and had fabulous Lobster Rolls. We did not have too much interaction with the staff, but when we did they were friendly.

As noted by others, Parking was an issue, but we always managed to find a spot. We were also there on what I imagine may be the busiest weekend of the year. Of note, there are no elevators, and even though we were on the ground floor, it is really one flight up from the back parking.

This was a perfect location. No finer for downtown Concord.

My only complaint would be that some nights there was a band playing in the bar or some function room, and we could hear it quite loudly in our room. We were glad when they finished playing.

Also, as a tip for those visiting on Patriots day: They start serving lunch in the casual restaurant at 11 - the exact time the parade finishes. We were out front to watch the parade and were seated immediately - along with what seemed like a million people....all at once. This seemed to cause a lot of stress amongst the servers and caused a delay in service. But our server said: "This happens every year." They were turning people away. But by 12:30 - free tables. My advice would be to delay your lunch a bit and you'll be fine!

Hoping to come back east this summer for another stay at this inn.

We stayed here for one night because we wanted to visit a historic inn and we used to live in the area. When we checked in we were greeted by two nice ladies at the front desk and were checked in very quickly. One of the ladies even showed us to our room, which was probably good since it is an old building and a little tricky to get around. Our room was very nice, smaller than a typical hotel room but you need to remember this is a historical inn. Rooms in hotels and inns were smaller back in the day. We did not eat at the restaurant here but it did look very nice. Our room had everything we needed, a nice stand up glass shower, perfect lighting in the bathroom and a comfortable bed. I thought the pillows were too firm but my wife loved them. If you are looking for a comfortable historic place to stay we would recommend it here. If you are looking for a very modern newer hotel, you should not be looking at places like this. We think everyone should stay a night at least at one historic hotel in the country so you can get a feel of what it was like years ago to stay at an inn, but with modern upgrades.

This facility was undergoing renovations in their lobby,reception area, and also has no elevator. But our room was modern and quiet. Really liked the hotel and location is central to the lovely town. Nice grab and go weekly breakfast. Wwould return if have the chance.

Concord's Colonial Inn Is indeed charming, which can be a mixed blessing. The main building is really three buildings from different time periods that have been amalgamated into a maze of restaurant dining rooms, common areas, meeting spaces and function rooms. Those with an eye for historical architecture will appreciate the attempts to preserve the period but will also notice many anachronistic renovations. The inn certainly capitalizes on its historical significance. The walls are adorned with prints and tales of the revolutionary war battles at Concord in 1775. The small gift shop has a number of related trinkets.

We were there on a Valentines' Day package that included the room, dinner, admission to the live band and breakfast. Dinner was good, but very pricey ($30 dollar entrees) and the portions were small.

I stayed at the Inn for a business trip- a very busy business trip. I didn't get to explore the area, but I certainly will during my next visit. The location is in Concord's center and it's just fabulous. The building is an absolute maze... it took me the week to get myself oriented, but it certainly was fun. The building's history began in the 1700's and the history has been, for the most part, preserved. There is no elevator. Keep this in mind if you don't plan to travel light. No one offered to help with bags. If you enter from the main entrance, you will be on the second floor, so you can avoid stairs if you enter there and stay somewhere on the second floor. If you enter from the rear, where the parking is, however, there is no avoiding stairs. I was on the third floor. I'm still fairly young, strong and I pack light so I was okay but I could really see some travelers struggling with this. Now... as for ghosts (see the Ghost Hunters episode about Room 24), I am happy/sad to report there were no doors closing on their own, though one might say there were some unexplained noises ;-). Anyhow, it was a really fun visit and, if you get a chance, you should check out the live music. My favorite was Wednesday night at 7:30. Happy travels!

Room Tip: The second floor is the main floor if you enter from the front of the building. There is no elevato...
