    The room was old and outdated. The bathroom has a mess. Broken tile on floor and walls and the toilet rocked and could not be sat on. For $200 a night, I expect a much better room and will NEVER stay at the Colonial Inn.

    No, it's an outdoor pool that will probably open in early May. You have availability to the YMCA which is close by. The Colonial provides free access to its guests to the Y.
