Typically when in Maine I want a place when I step out of my room I am outside with a water view. While our room had a water view everything else more than made up for it. I can still smell the cookies and breakfast being baked. We can't wait for next May when we go back. Love sitting on...

Our family has been coming to Ogunquit since 1966. We stayed at the Colonial for many years, but then it went downhill. Under present owners, it has come back much better than ever. Newly done over rooms, expanded porch, great lobby and pool as great as ever !

Rooms are comfortable but many are in separate buildings, some a tidy walk away from the hotel - OK when sun shines. Many restaurants within an easy walk as was the sea. Breakfast room was very small and choice limited.

The Inn is updated, spacious,and very inviting. The rooms are what you would expect for a sea side Inn. The staff was very helpful in directing us to fun places in town. The town was quaint and lots of fun to explore. The Inns proximity to everything was wonderful.

After watching the Colonial being renovated on past visits to the area we were anxious to give it a try. Though we stayed in one of the units separate from the main inn, we were not disappointed. Our room was large and had a refrigerator and microwave. In the main inn, the lobby area was like a large living room...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The last of the grand hotels of Ogunquit, the Colonial Inn has provided shelter and genuine Maine hospitality to travelers for over 125 years. Today, having undergone a major historical renovation and with new ownership and management, the Colonial Inn steps forward to reclaim its place among top hotels in the heart of Ogunquit. Accommodations at the Colonial Inn are comprised of 62 rooms spread throughout four different buildings, offering a variety of room configurations which can suit guests’ preferences or requirements, whether a single traveler, couple, family or group. The hotel’s Main Inn has been reconfigured and enhanced by taking the previous count of 44 rooms down to 28 rooms, several with water views. The end result is bigger guest rooms that afford a first-class experience with more of the comforts of home. Most rooms in the hotel – and every room in the Main Inn itself – boast a king bed and a coffee maker, all with new furnishings and décor. ... more   less
