Very dirty but good location

Posted 20-Mar-2016
The room was very dirty and gross. Shower was covered in mold. The whole room smelled like a public restroom. It was very close to the beach and we were able to check in early.

We had a wonderful time sitting and walking on the beach and walking to restaurants. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful.

This was my first trip to the outer banks. The room was not very large but it had a homey feeling. The staff was very friendly. The manger was very helpful with suggestions of activities and local cuisine. I'm looking forward to our next stay.

Weekend trip

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.

I booked a last minute getaway for myself and my kids. The hotel staff were all very friendly, kind, and efficient to help with any request. I booked a 2 bedroom apartment. It was spacious, there was a mini-kitchen to cook and store food. The while room was nice and clean when we arrived; the only part that bothered me was a couple of noticible stains on the comforters. Pros: Fridge to store food and beverage. Kitchen to cook in Ocean front for a short walk to the beach Walking distance to a good restaurant Short driving distance to shops TVs with cable in mainliving area and bedrooms Wifi Hot shower Tub for baths Cons: The extension cords everwhere were a huge saftey concern with young kids We were on the road side on the motel: lots of road noise Only 1 AC in the main room with little air flow to the bedrooms The comforters were noticiblily stained. The sink in the bathroom leaked; creating a smell in the room. Both were fixed quickly once reported to staff. (the hotel is older and repairs are to be expected; some concerns might not be noticed by staff; only by guests) It was good for the very low off season price. I booked hours before my stay and was able to get an ocean front hotel for a great price. I would not reccomend for families with young kids, but young couples traveling alone, or fishermen looking for a great little hotel to stay in this is the place.

Grate for the rate

Although the hotel was fine I had only one issue. Even though I placed the room with hotels.com I still had to give them a credit card and they charged me 50.00 bucks and put on hold. It's been a week and still haven't received money back. I can't afford to pay double for a stay

The room was somewhere to lay your head. The bathroom was small and the shower and sink water heads had water misers where their was low pressure on them.

Very nice motel on beach.

Posted 23-Oct-2015
Pros: Location, staff attentiveness to guest needs, a deck overlooking the ocean so that even those of us without oceanfront rooms could enjoy the view.
Cons: I was completely happy with my stay there.
Location: Good dining and shopping, nearby historical sites (Wright Brothers, Lost Colony), fishing piers, beachcoming, and much more.
We arrived very early and were given early check-in on the spot. Staff was extremely responsive to our every request. The rooms are clean and furnished with the necessities for a nice beach getaway. The Colonial Inn is nothing fancy, but the place bends over backward to make sure guests are happy, from complimentary coffee and daily YMCA membership to a lovely deck overlooking the surf where guests gathered. This was our third stay at the Colonial, and it won't be our last. It's very conveniently located next to a fishing pier and close to restaurants (including one in the pier house). The bed was comfortable, the climate control did what we needed in the room, and it was a quiet stay. If you need luxury accommodations, look elsewhere. But in its class, the Colonial is excellent.
