10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We loved the first colony inn. It's was like stepping back in time. We will definitely come back.
7.1 Good
Pros:Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean grounds are nice
Cons:Room was on the 3rd floor with no elevators for luggage, only view from the room was the highway, Inn is NOT located anywhere near the ocean, you can't even see the ocea. Would have been nice to know these things ahead of time as we wouldn't have stayed here had we known that.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The room was spacious and comfortable with extra amenities(microwave, small frig, extra counter space and small sink in room in addition to bathroom). A great value for what we paid. My only proviso is it is not a place for people who have trouble with stairs. No elevator that I saw. But part of the charm is staying in a historic hotel!! I will be staying there in the future if at all possible.
8.5 Very good
Pros:Location and staff were excellent. Beach access very good.
Cons:AC/heating unit was next to bed and loud. Checked in a 5 and room not ready. First room we were offered had a dripping faucet.
7.4 Good
Pros:Staff admitted reservation mistake and did their best to make up. However, the group had to split up with a couple staying at a less desirable inn. Staff compensated us with no charge for our room since error was their fault.
Cons:Had CONFIRMED reservation for TWO rooms for one night. Inn only reserved ONE room and had no other available rooms when we arrived.
