The proximity of this motel to the southern end of Skyline Drive/Shenandoah National Park (SNP) and the northern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP) was absolutely perfect for me. I was motorcycling southward and spent an afternoon coming down Skyline Drive. When I got to the end of SNP, I knew there would be limited options for a while...

Wife and I were on the way back to Ohio from the OBX and literally every hotel was booked, it was around 3:00 AM and I had almost given up. I stumbled on this place on my iPhone maps and was a bit worried because of the reviews but, it was perfectly fine. Clean room, comfy bed, and a great...

Needs new locks on the doors and needs to improve the parking. Ken, the manager, however, is a good servant whereas, since there is limited parking, he let us park next to his truck and he even brought our ice to us. We stayed two days, Monday was fine but, Tuesday, the other guests in the other rooms were noisy...

Probably more of a 1.5 star rating. It looks quaint on the outside, but the inside isn't so quaint. Using the shower was like a scene out of Shawshank Redemption. Mildew and unknown things smeared on walls, bathroom was always cold and damp. Everything could use an update or at least a steam clean. The staff is friendly.

Room was very inexpensive compared to others in the area (like half the cost). And it was the closest hotel to the southern entrance to Shenandoah National Park. This is an old motel in dire need of some upgrades. The bathroom was in very poor condition. However, the beds were comfortable and it was quiet. It was also only 6...

We stayed here for one night with our family. The room on the ground floor was tidy, however appeared that there was some type of animal that stayed in the unit as there was dirt / scratch marks on the back of the door. The air conditioning had a heat smell. The rooms are dated and the Internet is slow...

Although this motel is undergoing a remodel, once the remodel is complete this motel will be darling and quaint. Our room was clean and inviting. We found the staff extremely helpful and courteous. There was no continental breakfast which was kind of disappointing, but we did enjoy coffee and a lovely visit with the owners under the gazebo. When we...

The Colony House is in the best location, directly off of the interstate, but far enough away from it so you can't hear it. While we were there, since it's literally right down the street, we drove down the iconic Skyline Drive and visited Swannanoa Palace. This is the perfect place to make a stop for the night outside the...
