We have stayed several times and like to get a different room each time. It's always clean and decorated perfect for the historic village feel. The staff is the friendliest and most helpful you will come across.

The room was clean and well appointed, the staff was very accommodating (we had a late check-in and check-out), and the complementary items from the other shops were wonderful! Definitely found my new favorite soap. We have been coming...

Checkin person was nice and personable. She didn't tell the wifi password and most places do, but we found it in the room. Had the Great Bay room, which is in the main inn building. Beautiful room and awesome bathroom (five shower heads!) Had a deck but didn't use it due to biting flies. However, the smell when entering the...

My wife stayed at Colonial Inn this past Friday. We had room 203, which is in a small building with just two units, located in the movie-set-ish town of Smithville. Very quaint and comfortable.
