Colonial Bay was the perfect place for us to stay while in town for a local triathlon race. The owners were super friendly and we enjoyed being able to sit by the lake and take out the paddleboards.

Beware!!! No visitors on the property, no Kids on the property and the owner can simply kick you out in the middle of your reservation if he doesn't like your face. I rarely write reviews but couldn't help myself this time. The whole weekend was completely ruined by the rudeness and horrible hospitality. We booked 4 rooms in total. 3 were booked under one name and one was booked by me the last moment. My friends who booked 3 rooms came earlier and were denied occupancy simply because they didn't mention 2 kids for each reservation even though the maximum occupancy for each room was 4 (2 queen beds). After a long battle I gave up my room for them and booked nearby hotel for 1 night (all that was left). The owner Bruce still kicked them out the next morning simply on the fact that he didn't like them. It's unheard of!! He refused any refund and just ask them to leave. So, the sad story was that 8 people including 4 kids were kicked out of paid accommodation for NOTHING!!! I've never been treated like that before and very frustrated. If I could give this motel -10, I would.
