When planning our trip to Maine I wanted a hotel/motel that was close to Bar Harbor & Acadia, pet friendly (very fair $10 per night pet fee) and wouldn't break the bank and Colonial Inn checked all the boxes. We checked in last Sunday and were greeted by a very friendly woman at the front desk, within minutes of arriving she had me checked in and handed me a map showing our room location on the side of the building by the Elks Lodge, explaining we were in one of the "budget" rooms. I was initially a bit concerned but as we pulled up in front of our room I could see that they opened up onto a communal porch and was close by the wooded area (great for puppy potty breaks) and bonus points for not having to worry about having "heavy steppers" above us. The room was small but clean and seemed to have been updated recently and the mini fridge was one of the nicer ones that has a separate door for the freezer. The only faults I found with the room were that other than several coat hooks, there is nowhere to hang your clothes and the toilet seat kept coming loose. Although we never needed housekeeping she did check in to see if we needed anything and someone was always available in the building. Ice machines were just off of the main lobby but not terribly far from our room, #144, plus the freezer had it's own mini ice tray and a microwave in the room allowed us to enjoy our many leftovers. The beds were a tiny bit too firm for me but hubby loved them and it was nice to have a storm door to allow in light and fresh air, especially considering how nice the weather was and it was so quiet, never even heard other guests even though they were on both sides of us. Never got a chance to get in the pool but I did check it out and it was really big and the perfect temperature for a quick dip. The main building even had a vending machine filled with heat/eat & go foods in addition to snack and soda machines and there is a restaurant attached to the hotel that seemed quite popular. About 20 minutes from Bar Harbor and lots of restaurant options within a mile made this a perfect fit for us and fine for short stays but when we return next fall for a week we'll opt for a larger room.

We booked this at the last minute to fill in the gap between resort stays. Our room had been recently remodeled (except the tub/shower...which is radio to be replaced but worked fine). The beds are comfy, New carpet, marble top vanity, parked just outside the sliding patio doors so loading/unloading was easy! We didn't use the heated indoor pool or the laundry but both were very nice...impressive, actually. The coffee was excellent! Every staff member we interacted with were friendly and Hemphill. No complaints from our crew.

Stopped at the Colonial Inn last year on a planned trip last year, so this year we used it for a last-minute visit to Mount Desert Island nearby. It's really convenient, and the staff is cordial and helpful. Since last time we stayed, they have included free grab-and-go breakfast items, and the lobby coffee is good; certainly enough to get you moving for the day. We got a recently-renovated room, and the mattress was excellent. This time we also had time for fun using the pool, unlike last time.

I just needed a cheap place to stay while traveling through, and it was getting dark when I rolled into Ellsworth. The desk man was pleasant, and put me in a room in the Annex, behind the main hotel. Upon driving around the back, I was met by a scruffy looking dude drawing a drag on his cigarette while sitting on the tailgate of his company truck. My next door neighbor. Probable just a working stiff on a job, but it was a little creepy. The room is accessed from the hallway inside. The door sticks and had to be forced open and shut. Above the bed are hooks where a picture used to be. Around the walls are drill holes and plaster patches where other stuff used to be. The carpet is worn and stained. There's a sliding door leading to the parking lot. After several attempts to open it I realized that the lock is non-functioning. The door is secured by means of a hunk of PVC pipe lying in the rail. I slept with my pistol within arms reach.

We are sorry that your stay at the Colonial was not up to your expectations. We are a family run business; we assumed ownership a year ago and have been gradually making improvements and renovating the rooms. Regrettably, you were assigned a room in need of work and we apologize for that. We hope that you will try us again should you find yourself travelig through Ellsworth in the future.
