Certificate of Excellence
The last of the grand hotels of Ogunquit, the Colonial Inn has provided shelter and genuine Maine hospitality to travelers for over 125 years. Today, having undergone a major historical renovation and with new ownership and management, the Colonial Inn steps forward to reclaim its place among top hotels in the heart of Ogunquit. Accommodations at the Colonial Inn are comprised of 62 rooms spread throughout four different buildings, offering a variety of room configurations which can suit guests’ preferences or requirements, whether a single traveler, couple, family or group. The hotel’s Main Inn has been reconfigured and enhanced by taking the previous count of 44 rooms down to 28 rooms, several with water views. The end result is bigger guest rooms that afford a first-class experience with more of the comforts of home. Most rooms in the hotel – and every room in the Main Inn itself – boast a king bed and a coffee maker, all with new furnishings and décor.

The Inn was walking distance to Perkins Cove and downtown. Breakfast was plentiful.The rooms were clean. The Inn had an atmosphere of New England. Grand porch wraps around the Inn. Warm friendly feeling when we arrived. Loved the warm chocolate chip cookies!

Great location and good value. Room was newly renovated and clean and neat. Staff was excellent and complimentary breakfast was good. Only complaint was limited TV station selection, bare minimum but we weren't there for the TV.

Can you walk to a sand beach from here?
Yes, a beach is nearby. Depending on the time of year, the water can be quite cold. The Marginal Way is a beautiful,scenic oceanfront walking venue.

Can tickets for local attractions be purchased at the front desk?
In the past if you stayed at the Inn you received at 20% discount on Tickets (Had to buy them during your stay)...You can get tickets online or buy them by calling the Box Office Direct....We plan on visiting Ogunquit to see Mama Mia playing at the Playhouse later this year...Enjoy your visit

Hello, We will be staying with you for a couple of days soon and wondered if you have an area to safely store our bikes when not in use? Thank you, Rena
Hi, I recently stayed there and I think there may be a bike rack behind the main inn, or near the east wing. I'm not sure and recommend calling the front desk directly at 207-646-5191. They are so kind and helpful with every guest request!! Have a wonderful visit!!

"if you want to get an ocean view, main inn 3 rd floor but they have elevator"
"Request a 2nd level room if walking noise from above bothers you."
"Weekdays are better values and ask for an ocean view when booking."
"Huge room and bed was very comfortable!"
"Ask for a room on the top floor. The walls are thin and also ask for a room AWAY from the flag pole. I woke me up once or twice."
