10/10 Exceptional

I was on a work trip and started in name brand hotel for the first part of the trip. The job ran long so I needed to stay another few nights. The brand name place wasn't very comfortable so I looked into other options. Colonial was much more comfortable and had better amenities. The staff was more personal and the other guest's seem to all be repeat guest or incredibly friendly.

The property needs a few upgrades. I had issues with the TV. The owner and his wife were most accommodating. I will stay again when in the area! Felt very safe, the area is quiet. Close to anything I needed.
