We stayed here because it was close to the camp grounds and our motor home was in service. It was old, but clean and friendly. We always bring our own sheets and pillows and blanket wherever we stay. Lucy, the owner, couldn't have been nicer and more helpful! For a reasonably priced room on a holiday weekend, you can't beat... More

Yes, there are people that live there-but understand, there are multiple reasons WHY they live there. My son has used Colonial Inn several times-and he will probably return there since it is very convenient.... More

The owner is very nice and stays very busy putting all her time into making this a pleasant place to stay. There are 40" plus flat screen tv's, Showtime is one of the channels. There... More

This place really makes me wonder what they are trying to pull. If anyone looks at the pictures, the management's ones are exactly the same as the traveler's photos.

Worst Stay ever, if I could of just said the 2 words I really wanted to in this review, it would say...Bed Bugs! Besides the fact they charged $150 per night for this dump, is beyond nuts. Stay far far away from this place as you can!
