This is a very special, but slightly different place to stay. It is well located to visit everywhere in and around New York and is just over an hour to get to from JFK. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are small where I was on the top floor. This place is not ultra modern, but this is more than made up by its quaintness. The bathrooms on the top two floors are modern and very clean, which makes up for them being shared. The beds were very comfortable. My visit was close to Halloween and both the Colonial Inn Hotel and local property’s made an effort, people even drove up to have photos taken. The roof garden is fabulous and on one night someone was practicing their saxophone, which was very enjoyable.
This property will not suit people who do not enjoy steps or stairs, but if you want a traditional bed and breakfast and great coffee, this might be the place for you. Thank you for looking after my son and Ion our six day stop.
