“Good Option for Budget Travel”
Reviewed 15 July 2010

Its been a long time since I've stayed in an old fashioned motel but I chose this one because of the good reviews. Our room had recently been redone (#9) so while it was a little snug, the carpet, bedding and towels were all clean and comfortable. The location is perfect for wine tasting since there are many tasting rooms near the airport just around the corner from this motel. The owners, Carolyn and her husband were very friendly and helpful and gave their personal attention to any problems. Wi Fi worked fine. We're glad we saved enough money on our room to buy a few bottles of the great wines here.

My wife discovered this on the Internet...what a great find. The couple that own the place have been there 38 years and were very friendly and informtive. The motel was build years ago but you would never know it. They have done a terrific job updating and our unit was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was large and well lit.

Would definitely go back.

I agree with many of the others who have reviewed the Colonial on this site "Save your money for the wine."

The rooms are very small and it's not located in the heart of downtown Walla Walla, but the Colonial makes up for it on value. The rooms are kept clean.

If you are looking for a place to sleep that's clean and affordable you cannot beat Colonial Motel. Free wireless internet as well.

Dick and Carolyn put this in their welcome book and they mean it! I went to W2 for a conference and I am so glad I chose the Colonial. It was an easy jaunt into town but great access to recreation at Lake Bennington (which Dick told me about!) and the bike road tours (map courtesy of the Bike Barn). It was such a pleasure to come back to the Colonial and see how the garden was coming, the new annuals planted or the new bench added. The Tuttles know how to make you feel "at home" and comfortable. Look forward to going back.

My husband and I just returned from a weekend wine tasting in Walla Walla. We do enjoy the columbia Valley and its many wonderful wineries. Since we are working on building our wine cellar, the Colonial offers a very affordable, clean, quiet and comfortable way to stay, so we can spend the rest of our money investing in wine. The couple that run this motel are fabulous! We've always had a very enjoyable stay. It is small and quaint, clean and comfortable. When we're just traveling the two of us, there's no other place we'd rather stay.

We had the "suite" and a regular room. Both were very clean and organized. The owners were sweet and fulll of information. The fact that it's a dated did not bother me. The beds were comfy and we were happy. Close to everything you need, gas, coffee and Vino. You always have to balance the budget and this place is just the find.
