We stayed here for the Colonial Beach Fall Fishing Tournament. It was sufficiently clean and comfortable. Not much to right home about. The are located on the beach so it wins on location, location, location.

Booked this hotel mostly because of location and the price was great considering it was right on the water! I truly was not expecting much because the price was under $100, but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised when we pulled in. The parking lot was all freshly paved and nice and bright. The check in area...

Visiting in the area. Met a friend at park near George Washington Birthplace park. Much nicer beach - sandy there . Hotel was expensive for what it provided. Very local place.

Stayed here with wife and 4 grandkids August 2016 and expected much more for the price. The weather was very hot and the ice machine didn't work. They don't offer coffee or juices like most other motels in this price range do. The breakfast was either a roll apple or hard boiled egg....coffee was powder creamer only. The owner watched...

Our crew rolled in spare of the moment to rent a room. All other motels in the area were booked thanks to an annual car show (we were not aware of). The management was extremely accomodating, the rooms near immaculately clean. The site is right on the beach. Yes, as you may read in other reviews, it is a pebble...

First time visiting Colonial Beach in July 2016. Although River Edge Inn is 'right on the beach", its mostly rocks/pebbles directly in front of the hotel and very small. if you walk about a quarter mile south, you'll get to a spot which is bigger with much more sand (but still somewhat rocky). Lots of jellyfish when we visited so...

I checked in for one night because I was in the area for two nights and one of those I wanted to stay in Colonial Beach. The hotel was sold out and the price was 150.00 per night. When pulling up to check in thought this looks pretty nice. Close to the beach which wasn't bad looking view of the...

Needed a last minute place to stay and booked at this hotel as a last resort because of the negative reviews. Some things were good but some things not so good. The location is awesome. The pool looked clean but we didn't have time get in. We should have known there would be a problem when we tried various times...
