SOOO NICE!!! Shirley at the front desk made you feel like family as soon as you arrived. It was our 35th anniversary & she had champagne & a card waiting for us. She bent over backwards to make our stay the best possible & she gave all the credit to the cleaning staff & owners, when I was raving how nice everything was. This entire establishment takes pride in all they do! We stayed in room 2 with the large handicap bathroom we needed. My only suggestion would be to somehow squeeze in a small cushion chair for reading and watching tv, otherwise it was all beyond perfect!! Thank you for caring!

We had a very large, comfortable room with two queen sized beds. The building is a former motel, very nicely renovated and decorated with a "beachy" feel. The only complaint we could think of is that the bathroom was relatively small. But it was quite manageable, particularly given the spaciousness of the room. Everything was clean and comfortable. The staff in the office was really nice. The location was great for us - we were in Colonial Beach to spend time with a friend whose house was only a few blocks away. There is a parking area, about half a block away. And a very cool art gallery just across the street. The location is very central (easy walk to several restaurants).

Cute renovated retro motel- very clean. Decorations had a beachy feel. A bunch of chairs outside where you can watch passerby’s and the river. Very relaxing. Steps from town pier. Staff was super nice and fun to chat with. They have these books in the office and in the rooms that talk about Colonial Beach history- until I he late 1950s Maryland allowed gambling in some counties hit especially hard by the depression and MD owned the river to the VA shore. So They built a hotel on the shore and a gambling hall over the river. People in DC would take a boat to Colonial Bch to vacation, party and gamble. Only a few businesses open midweek- best time to come is weekends. Can rent golf carts, kayaks etc.

Very nice quaint hotel. We really enjoyed our stay the staff are super nice and the rooms are spotless. Very period authentic (1960’s). Very close to the beach and boardwalk. Normally has a coffee pot in the room but due to COVID restrictions it was removed. They did have coffee in the lobby as well as orange juice and bottled water. The room has everything you need.
