Our bed was comfortable with an electric blanket. We didn't arrive until after 6pm and the friendly owner had put our heaters on which...

Thank you for excellent service for a late arrival and the return of a forgotten item. This is a very comfortable motel with larger than average rooms in a quiet location away from the main truck route. The facilities were clean and the bed comfortable. For an overnight stop on a long journey, the Colonial Lodge is now our preferred...

Yes, while the decor is a little dated, I found the manager Cheryl to be very friendly and accommodating, the rooms spacious enough, the heating worked, and the bed was comfortable. Tariff was only $110, which was good value in my opinion. And yes, the...

Very old room with original features. The electric blanket didn't work, and the plug was bent and wouldn't fit into socket which was disappointing as it was cold but too late to let them know. The vents were dirty as was the office floor. Needs money spent on it. Looks like nothing has been updated since it was built. Quite...
