We are loyal to Colonial Lodge due to their awesome service and they are loyal to us as well. When I called to make the reservation Laurie remembered me and that we visit with our grandson! That was amazing! She also accomodated a request to have a ground floor room due to my husbands issue with climbing up stairs. I feel like family as they treat us so well. As always we had a great time- lovely rooms, always clean and well cared for. A huge shout out to the housekeeping staff- it is not an easy job but they do a wonderful job. See you next year!

We just visited again and find that the updates that have been made are lovely. The new patio furniture and fire pit really made it a nice place to relax at any time of day. We sat by the fire pit in the evening and enjoyed meeting others staying there. The room we had was really very clean and well furnished. The staff is very friendly and visits with those who sit outside. The housekeeping staff is very good, great service. We will stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a very nice, quiet friendly place to stay. It is also very close to town and an easy walk to most things in town and 2 blocks from the beach. We will be back for sure.
