“Meh?”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

The good thing about this place is the location. There is a pier for motel guests just across the street. A public beach is feet away (although the town beach is quite a hike up the street). It's also quite affordable. The downside is that it's not been updated since the 80s. It's tiny. It's not the cleanest place. It smells of Fabreeze and the floors made my feet dirty. The worst thing is the feeling that I was being scammed. The front desk "lost' my reservation. She offered to give us a room at almost twice the reserved price. When we left, she called us back in and miraculously "found" it. Now, things may have happened just as she said they did, but I felt like I was being scammed because of the helpless way the front desk clerk was acting. She couldn't find my reservation by last name or confirmation number.

Oh, the mattress is hard. It wasn't the greatest night's sleep.

Spent one night over Memorial Day Weekend w/my husband. This is a no frills motel. It is clean, has a nice location (you can walk to the beach in less than two minutes), and is priced according to what you get. We were in Room #5 (a small, double bed) There was a small kitchen sink, fridge and microwave which was a nice touch. WiFi was slow but free. The pillows were not comfy so if you are picky...bring your own. If you are only spending a few nights in Colonial Beach, this is the perfect place..

Looked online like a great place..but the nicest looking were actually pics of a apartment style place at top of motel not he main strip on lower main motel. my husband and I experienced a nut case manager? walking around looking angry most of the time it seems or yelling at the lady on the desk that runs all over trying to do it all it would appear! Place stunk of smoke and gritty floor rooms..had ashtrays on every ac unit outside with butts so guess thats what draws all the smoke INTO the NON SMOKING ROOM! What a Joke!
So i guess this is a double review! GO to the Rivers Edge Hotel and be right on the Board Walk and nice gravel beach area..with a right AT HOME feeling! DON'T GO to Wakefield Motel..you get what you pay for!
