“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Recently we were able to be a part of my grandson's State Little League Chapionship Games in Walla Walla and stayed at the Colonial Motel. It was wonderful! They were very flexible with our "iffy" schedule as winning each game was dependent on how long we stayed. The room was spacious, clean, quiet, and the beds were wonderful. The location was perfect as far as the various activities we were involved in.
If I were to return to Walla Walla, I would, without a doubt, return to Colonial Motel and would highly recommend it to anybody else.

Stayed here in March for a weekend of wine tasting. This hotel was very economical and had a good location from which to wine taste at all of the wine regions within Walla Walla. The rooms were pretty small and fairly clean. Bathroom was very small and not updated at all since circa 1950. The owner was extremely nice and helpful though. Very basic motel. Fairly quiet too.

We arrived late at night to a clean, small stuffy room next to the ice machine (#11).
After several minutes of trying, even my mechanical-minded husband could not get the AC to work. We barely slept due to the heat and the constantly running ice machine! Owner admitted the next day that the ice machine was broken (why not unplug it??) and that the separate heat thermostat needs to be turned to 90 for AC to work!!!! who would even think that?? The owner acted as if we were stupid & was accusatory!! The owner admitted the therm was turned down by someone else...why wasn't it checked during cleaning?? Furthermore, she admitted that 4 other rooms have this wiring problem!!! Very disappointed with room and arrogant treatment!!

I'm not a motel patron (more of a Hilton patron) but couldn't find ANY open hotels during graduation weekend in Walla Walla. Was very apprehensive about staying in a motel but pleasantly suprised. This motel is run by a retired couple and you won't find any better customer service anywhere. The rooms were clean, spacious. Beds were hard....so if you like a really firm bed, this is the place. But the customer service and friendliness of the owners is worth a little hard bed.
I'd stay there again

In MAY, 2012, My wife and I stayed again at the Colonial Motel while visiting our daughter, a student at Whitman College. As in our earlier visit in 2010, the owners, Carolyn and Dick Tuttle took great care to ensure that our visit was pleasant and comfortable. Not only is the motel one of the best lodging values in the area, the owners are always ready with good suggestions about places to go and see while in Walla Walla. We cannot recommend this place too highly.

Was in town to scope out the scene to see if I wanted to move to Walla Walla and attend graduate school. Carolyn was great at selling me on the city and had wonderful things to say about the program I want to attend. Loved that she took the time to explore what I might want for dinner, breakfast, and lunch while there. BTW- She gave awesome recommendations. The room was clean, spacious, and just what I needed for the reason I was there. Obviously Carolyn sold me... will stay there again when I go back to look for jobs and housing.
