Alarm bells rang when neither of our key cards would open our door. The manager took us up the fire escape stairs and his key would not open the balcony door. We waited in the cold until the maintenance man opened the door. We were asked if we would leave our balcony door open during our stay - he wasn't...

We walked in not expecting much, but this is really a good place to stay! The staff were friendly and very accommodating. Our room was not 100% clean when we checked in and they moved us right away. No attitude, just cooperation, which made a very positive impression after getting off to a bad start. The room was spacious and...

The hotel is old,with really bad furniture but usually I don't give too much importance to the appearence. The really big problem was that our room was dirty and I saw a beatle on the sink when I returned from the dinner. They change our room but when I unmake the bed for the night the blancket has a lot...

Nice location to go to Arcadia National State Park. When we entered the room, it smelled. No air or fan was on. The refrigerator wasn't even plugged up. We didn't even get shampoo/conditioner which every hotel gives. You get coffee in the mornings. You get free wifi.

The Colonial Inn is a very good value Inn. Stayed two nights. Heated outdoor pool. Quiet place, clean rooms, easy drive to Acadia. Would definitely stay there again. On the main road into Acadia, restaurants in the area, too.

We booked this motel last minute as we were supposed to be camping but heavy rain delayed us one night. The front desk staff was very friendly but that's where it ended. The indoor pool was closed for repairs and our room was not very inviting. There was a strong musty smell and overall dingy appearance. There was also a...

This place has had some work done on it and looks fresh again. We took the kids swimming here and the cost was reasonable, the pool and surroundings were very clean. They offered a shower area just off the pool area to dry off before leaving the area. I liked how the staff made a point to say " see...
