Friendly accommodating staff. Parking is a little tight but ok...in close proximity to fishing, beaches, and other OBX attractions.

It is a bargain priced (for the area) motel. Amenities are thin. Bathroom was extremely tight. Kids fit. But not most adults. Don't bring a full sized truck. Parking is extremely tight.

Ease of access to the beach is awesome, but parking is tight.

The bathroom & room are very small. But the price is a great value for the location. You are right on the beach. The room was clean and the staff friendly. It is also dog friendly, both beach and hotel. The hotel provided doggy bags to clean up after you pet which was a nice touch. It is located in a good section near everything. We would definitely stay again.

We loved everything about it. Easy access to the beach great swimming pool great people working there

The staff were helpful and friendly. The room was okay for a night's stay, but I think I like a few more perks like a coffee pot and blow dryer. Also I had to stand on the arms of the chair to reach the controls for the room's air conditioner. Beach location by the pier was great.

The front desk isn't 24/7 but just call and the owner will be sure you can get into your room after hours. Quaint, great location, updates tasteful. Perfect for a quick overnight stay, or for a longer stay if you only use the room for sleeping and showering while playing on the Outer Banks!! Will stay again for sure!

Clean hotel. Staff friendly! Parking is tight but doable.

Close to the beach. That is the best part of this hotel.

Typical beach motel, clean, close to the ocean and a pool for the kids.

Close to beach parking terrible can’t accommodate larger vehicles with trailer hitch

I enjoyed the motel and how close we were to the beach the pier and walking distance to restaurants and other stores. I also enjoyed the pool definitely will stay again.

Pier next door makes great sunrise pics along with benches to sit & enjoy! Directly on beach is awesome to walk from room down walkway onto sand! Only negative was dirty shower curtain.

My wife and I had a great time staying at the Colonial Inn. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and attentive. And of the course the best part is the beach which only a few steps away!

Dirty hotel. In a state a disrepair. I don't think the room was cleaned at all. Closed the curtain in the bedroom and an old coke bottle rolled out from behind the TV. Food dirt in the kitchen area above the stove. Dishes unwashed and put away. Dead bugs in light fixtures Bathroom sink barely hanging on the wall. Kitchen sink water backwards (hot cold reversed) . I could go on..but why

The Hotel claims free wi-fi in all rooms. (except mine) The room was dirty and in need of a lot of repairs. The pictures of rooms on line show rooms with a full size refrigerator, stove and micro wave. (My room had a mini refrigerator and a small micro wave). When I went to the desk to complain about the lack of Wi-Fi I was told that I should be getting wi-fi (I never got Wi-Fi in this room) If and when I needed to use my computer I had to go to the office and sit in their chair. I was told that if I could find another hotel they would allow me to leave. I could not find another hotel. I was told that they did not have another room that I could use. The second day I was told that if I wanted they would move me to another room, however by this time I was only staying one more night, and the problem of moving my things would not be worth it. I was given a partial rebate on the cost of my stay, however what I really wanted was a room. Unfortunately I am unable to post the picture that I did take, due to size.

The room was small but it was clean. Was a bit dated but well kept. The parking lot was extremely small and left me in the very last open spot squeezed between two other cars. The staff was extremely friendly and the free coffee was delicious. My reservations online said free breakfast but that was not true. I would stay again. Fix the parking situation and I'll give five stars.

The staff were very friendly. Coffee available in the lobby. Standard room- refrig and microwave is small and turns off when switch by door is turned off. Needs better sign. Bathroom needs remodeling. Location great. For a quick and cheaper trip it is ok.

The parking is not only horrible there's not sufficient parking....I would prefer a hotel where you can get coffee & breakfast and a much nicer bathroom. The door to the bathroom stuck when closed and the closet smelled too bad to hang clothes in and the door didn't shut at all. This hotel is in desperate need of repairs.

Thank you for the review, we greatly appreciate it. We are an 76 year old property and therefor we are not as roomy as newer properties. We do have an overflow parking available for the bigger trucks.
