Reviewed 26 April 2013

Clearly this was aold Holiday Inn or other upscale hotel back in the day. The room decor was very early 90s, but isnt wasnt horrible. The lobby was massive. I got a call in the afternoon saying they overbooked the hotel, and if it was ok to put us in a double bedroom twice the size. I agreed and advised we wouldnt be there till after 1am. I arrived and he knew exactly who I was! Check in went fairly smooth. The room we got was 2 standard rooms, with a door opening so you can go back and forth. One of the rooms had a couch and loveseat, mini fridge and microwave. Both rooms still had their bathrooms. The beds were decent. They keep the plastic on the box spring like it would come from the store. TV was confusing, as it wasnt programmed right and switching channels took forever. I didnt bring a computer so I dont even know if they had wifi. I also didnt inquire about any sort of free breakfast. We slept fine, and werent disturbed. They seem to get a lot of construction workers, as a sign says "Please keep car radios down while driving through at X time as construction workers are sleeping" or something like that. It seem to be AMERICAN run and everyone spoke english. No night time security glass check in either. Theres almost no food around, but this neat convenience store across the street that everyone seems to go to for all sorts of food. For $51, id stay here again. It was cheap, clean and comfortable and had zero frills.

Thank you for your feedback and review! We value all of our guests' opinions as it allows us to coach our staff accordingly. We apologize for the difficulty with the TV, and will address with our staff. For future stays, we do offer complimentary WiFi and a free continental breakfast as well. You are correct on the construction workers and American owned. The sign we display to respect all of our guests, not just the ones that sleep at night! Come back anytime, we would love to have you!

Stayed on a monthly basis. Would have been better if closer to town, or had included some more immenities with monthly rate.

Came down to do some tax shopping in Greensboro and it started raining pretty heavy on the way home. Decided to stop off of Highway 29 and this place was right off of the exit. There was a 24 hour gas station across the street with a deli that we grabbed a quick bite to eat. The front desk lady was very nice, and gave me a great rate that was way less than I figured for being so close to Greensboro. With tax I paid less than 50 bucks, and you can't beat that! The room was clean, the TV was big, and the bed was firm (which with my back was a huge plus sign!). When I checked out in the morning the guy running the desk said that they were remodeling some rooms and waiting on some new furniture. The room we stayed in did show some wear, but other than that, the place was clean. I slept like a baby, so obviously no noise outside which was a plus sign. My wife felt safe, so that's all that matters!

Everyone has a bad stay here and there as I just read the review, so I will be the first to say give them a shot, it was well worth the price I paid!

Oh and to the owners - we will be back in the summer when we take the kids school shopping in Greensboro!

My family and I was travelling to Greensboro when our car started to overheat. We were twenty miles from Greensboro in the town of Reidsville. We walked to the Colonial Inn. I was a little sketchy because you don't know what you are going to get in an independent motel. The staff was very very helpful especially Seth. This place had a great value, clean rooms, 32 inch tv was in our room. Seth helped us find a tow truck and a great garage to fix our car for a decent price. This is a great place to stay and everybody working was American and could speak english. I would definitely stay again.

The rooms weren't bad. However thought the elderly lady was kinda rude. Not a very people minded person. The breakfast they had wasn't really enough, when i got there they wasn't juice they mentioned or the pasteries. Maybe improve the breakfast and charge alittle more. Other than that everything was good.
