I highly recommend the main inn. It's so full of history and energy. There's an inn house tavern from the 1600s as well as a nice restaurant. I can't wait to come back. It's definitely haunted! We didn't get to stay in room 24, the makeshift hospital for the injured revolutionary war solders, but we were in the room across. I was awoke many times throughout the night and even heard scratching at one point. Regardless if you're coming for history or haunts, you won't be disappointed.

Another wonderful Veterans Day. The Concord Independent Battery (picture in the first photo from late 1800s) still fires in tribute of those that have and continue to serve for the greatest country on earth. Great salute if you are lucky enough to catch it! Great town. Great history. Great Patriotism.

Concord's colonial Inn, on a Wednesday morning, provides a lovely setting for a brunch or lunch. They are very accommodating, the food is excellent, and our visit was during a very warm August day, and nonetheless sitting outside on their porch was a good experience! Love the colonial decor and charm.

Location, service and accommodation were awesome. Love the lady who works at the front desk on Monday morning. She is wonderful!! Also I couldn't be happier that there are little treats when I went into my room! It made my day. Thank you.

Kaan was the greatest hotel associate I’ve worked with in a very long time. He was immediately so welcoming to our wedding party, very attentive to our every need, and went out of his way to ensure all of our guests were comfortable and well taken care of. I highly recommend him for any job in the future. Great worker, and overall great person. Highly highly recommend.

Stayed in room 24 & got an interesting picture on my SLS camera around 2am which lasted about 30 minutes. This place did not disappoint. Anyone who says they need updating is wrong. This hotel needs to stay the way it is. Putting in modern furniture or bathrooms would absolutely take away from its coziness and character! Also, the restaurant is unbelievable! It's definitely in the top 3 places I have ever eaten at. I expected regular bar food there, but I was so wrong! The steak is fabulous! I will be staying there again this weekend and I can't wait. I really love this place! Oh, and it's very clean as well!

We stayed in a Prescott Queen room while visiting the National Historic Site nearby. It was fascinating to stay in such a historic location and I would highly recommend this inn to all. Pros: Amazing history, great location, clean, comfortable, updated bathroom, FANTASTIC restaurant Cons: The wall AC unit did well with lowering the temperature of the room but it did stay a little humid (with that being said, I am sensitive to heat and it was very tolerable), very small shower (to be expected from a historic inn).

We ate lunch here on a warm, sunny day in May 2022. The service was friendly, and reasonably attentive. Drinks list is limited, so don't come expecting a world-class cocktail or beer list. The food was solid, stick-to-your-ribs fare. The Poutine was tasty, and easily shared amongst the 4 adults at the table. The brown gravy was rich, and the meat was flavorful. The green beans that accompanied the pot pie were excellent - very crisp and fresh tasting - though they needed a bit of seasoning. The clam Chowder and pot pie were similar. Decent enough, but underseasoned. Salt and pepper improved both a great deal. I highly recommend taking the time to check out the interior, and maybe grab a drink at the tavern in the back. You'll feel like you've been thrown back a few hundred years into the Colonial past.

Took out our friends out to lunch here after showing our friends after taking to some to some of historical sights. Had reservations. Got to seats quickly and so with service. We were not rushed food was good as usual. Recommend highly.

Multiple rooms open at different times of the day. The back bar is clad in dark wood and serves a good pint of Guinness. A must if you’re in town

My friend and I had a wonderful lunch on Saturday at the Colonia Inn in Concord. We had the nicest young man wait on us. His name was Noah! He gave us exceptional service and made our lunch extra special. The food was delicious! 5 Stars for the food and for a Noah!
Mark Palmer   April 17, 2022
Close to the main commercial area, quiet in the evenings, and comfortable. The staff, starting with the manager, Zachary, are friendly, and accommodating. The restaurant is very pleasant, and the food is always hot and prepared just as requested. If you are staying in the Concord area, this is where you want to stay!

I have visited this beautiful hotel every year since I was ten. I always love coming here. I haven't been able to come the last two years due to covid but I am hopeful that I will be able to visit this year. Hope they still have the cornbread because it was my favorite.

Dropped in for lunch. Staff are always warm, welcoming and helpful. Traditional fare, beautifully done.
James Zelony   January 17, 2022
I had the Ruben sandwich with greens for lunch and it was excellent! The greens were fresh and tasty even during winter. The sandwich ingredients were all delicious and perfectly prepared. Service and ambiance are very attentive and engaging. I highly recommend ;-)

Solid! Across all expectations! The staff was dealing with an apparent scheduling issue today. We were escorted to the Village Forge Tavern where the staff took excellent care of us and made sure we were right at home. Starters: New England Clam Chowder that rivals the best in the area. Entree: My wife chose the Poutine and loved it! "It was delicious!" Her words. I chose The Alcott with simple greens on the side. The greens were perfectly coated so that every bite was fresh, crunchy, and as if the greens were harvested this morning. The sandwich was prepared such that the turkey was moist and paired nicely with the brie, arugula, and apple mustard but the one thing that brought everything together was the cranberry ciabatta. It was crunchy on the outside and soft and sweet on the inside which helped every bite explode with flavor. It's been 9 hours since my visit and I can't wait to go back and enjoy another meal at this delightful establishment. I would recommend it to anyone!

This is a historical inn with a nice ambience. I've only been to its restaurant and bar. The bar is very cute with a good menu of drinks. The restaurant offers very decent (large portions) American cuisine. We were a relatively large group and ordered a variety of items from their menu. Everyone was happy with their meals.

Most of the staff were decent and friendly; the rooms were okay. We had a mix-up happen our first night and were upgraded for free the second night, which we appreciated. There were some thoughtful touches. But, housekeeping was vacuuming the halls at 8am sharp BOTH days, which was super annoying, especially with how thin the walls were. One housekeeper actually assumed we must've been gone - after planning to switch rooms, we're not sure if maybe the front desk didn't relay the message we were still in that room or if they had us marked as being checked out already - and housekeeping started to open the door/enter our room without knocking first or announcing themselves (we thought for sure we had put up the "do not disturb" sign, but it was gone - ghosts, maybe?). Thank goodness we had clothing on at the moment! Additionally... we almost always end up pushing our check out to the last minute, which no hotel has ever hassled us about before. But here, both mornings we had the front desk calling our room phone at exactly ZERO seconds past checkout time to remind us that CHECKOUT WAS AT X AM and WE WERE NOW TECHNICALLY OVERDUE. Geez! The phone literally rang as we had our hand on the door knob and were ready to head down the stairs. They don't mess around! Overall it was a nice hotel and a decent stay, but some of the staff were a bit pushy. Also the entire town shuts down and rolls up their sidewalks around 5pm every day of the week and we ended up having to drive 20 minutes down the road and 20 minutes back just to get some food after deciding we didn't want to eat dinner at the hotel again - and then realizing there were NO other options. It was a cool experience but perhaps not the best for younger couples who like to have modern amenities and a little more flexibility.

One of the best food experience i had in Boston. Their chicken pot pie is probably the best i ever had in my life. The place is so cute and old school Boston. I love it
frances rohrbaugh   October 9, 2021
Don't forget to use ʜᴏᴛᴇʟʙᴜʟʟʏ .ᴄᴏᴍ when booking a hotel. They compare hundreds of booking web sites and normally will have rates a lot cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This resort is one of my favorites in the area. I've been staying here for a very long time. If you choose this place you definitely will love it I'm sure! Really great food, drinks
John Z   October 9, 2021
This review is for the restaurant, not the hotel. Excellent service and food. The fish and chips was especially good. We really liked the waiter who served us. The outside of this restaurant is a square with great view so you should always choose to sit outside.
Mark Thompson   October 9, 2021
Charming old inn with a cozy pub and inviting porch for drinks and a bite. Food and service are very good, but the ambiance steals the show. Be prepared to wait, as this is a very popular spot.
Dylan R.   October 3, 2021
The food was freshly prepared, seasoned properly, impeccably presented and benefited from unique recipes.
Tim Richardson   September 24, 2021
We visited Walden Pond, walked the trail around the pond that Thoreau walked and we worked up an appetite. We drove into nearby Concord for lunch and, after asking a few locals, decided the local favorite was the Concord Colonial Inn. I had an Old Fashioned and the black bean burger, my wife had the kale salad. Food was good but the best part was the setting and watching the people of Concord walk by, just living their lives. BTW, sit outside if you can.
Brian O'Connell   September 19, 2021
This is a review for the restaurant great service food is good! The only thing I would say I wasn’t enthused with were the truffle fries they were very soggy. The burger was great!
Michelle Bernasconi   August 8, 2021
I had my last minute wedding here in July 2020! The event coordinator was outstanding. The food was delicious and the team went above and beyond during covid-19 times to ensure that we were safe during the event. I am so appreciated for all that the staff did to make our wedding reception fantastic!

From check in to check out I have nothing but good things to say about this place. Staff are friendly and extremely helpful. We ate in the restaurant as well and the service and food were excellent! The hotel was very clean and absolutely beautiful. I give this place my highest recommendations.
Mike   June 14, 2021
Right in the heart of downtown Concord you can find this charming old inn and restaurant. The staff are friendly, the setting is charming, and overall this is a lovely place. The food was good - certainly more an inn than restaurant type of vibe/food quality. The prices were fair, and the service was good. If you go, make sure to sit outside if you can!
Greg Snow   June 1, 2021
Great historic inn. Rooms are small, but nice. Restaurant has fantastic food. Chicken pot pie and pot roast are equally delicious. The bartender, Subasz, had good drink recommendations. We'll be back soon for another date night, away from the kids and still close to home. A well deserved 5 stars.
Patrick Fallon   May 31, 2021
Super friendly staff. Short staffing pains were evident at our visit. Great effort and execution for our daughter's birthday dinner. Great to be out again. Food was good. Not Great. Priced for great.
Fran Kane   May 24, 2021
Super nice staff. Very quaint feeling throughout all right in the heart of town. Great experience. Would go again.
Nichole Farine   May 17, 2021
I was so happy with our stay here. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was so friendly and the Resturant was DELICIOUS! I had the chicken pot pie and it was incredible. My son loved the lobster roll as well. If I ever make it back to Concord I will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this place!
Athena Drew   May 10, 2021
Daughters took me here for Mothers Day. My favorite place in historical Concord, Ma. Food is always great. It's also a famous Inn.
Bill Lipsett   April 26, 2021
I'm a history nerd, so I absolutely love this place. The Inn, itself, is very historic, and it's centrally located in one of the most historic places in the nation. Restaurant is always very good, and the rustic pub caps it all off. An absolute must stay if you're in the area.
Brett Cochran   March 26, 2021
Great yankee tavern food. Have only been here during pandemic but I'm super looking forward to trying the bar because it looks so cozy. The wife is gluten free, on this place has great alternatives. Clam chowder and fried calamari gluten free!

Just wanted to point out a few things for potential guests because this was not at all what I expected when I booked it (from only seeing it online.) This hotel isn’t updated, in any way. Even for a boutique hotel it was pretty drab. We stayed in the Prescott wing. Everything was very clean in the room. It was pretty much spotless. We had some issues checking in on the first day but the front desk attendant the next day was amazing. The staff was awesome and friendly and there were zero issues after that. Being in the historic building is super cool if you are into history. It was fun exploring the different rooms. The location is literally perfect and walking tours even leave from the hotel (highly recommend the little women tour.) This hotel is good but just don’t expect the accommodations to be that great (rooms are super tiny.) It’s more like a novelty to stay there. I recommend it for its location and price.

Had Christmas Eve dinner which was wonderful. Felt very safe with table arrangements. Food was delicious, halibut and beet appetizer was great. The Inn was decorated nicely which added to the experience. One suggestion would be to add holiday music.
Kyle Mocker   December 15, 2020
Very nice venue for a wedding. The cottages were nice as well. We couldn't get the heat to turn off though and it was overly hot when I stayed there.

In love with ZACK! We all thought he studied hospitality in college. He is gorgeous and works so hard. Wish he could be my friend outside of the hotel! Especially now, it is hard to meet new friends in my old home town during the pandemic. Oh and I also love the hotel, the hospitality, the food. The swordfish and potato pancakes, the steak, the breakfast. I am so obsessed I stayed her for like 3 months! Don't forget yet again... I have a huge friend crush on the front desk kid. haha
Kimberley Wozniak   October 22, 2020
Very picturesque and lovely. Wait staff helpful and courteous. Food was really good. I had the NE clam chowder which was delish.

First off I’m a paranormal investigator and came to this location to see what kind of paranormal evidence we could capture ! It was a very amazing stay I have to say it’s totally awesome place to investigate the paranormal it’s definitely haunted and the staff is totally amazing accommodating and very informative also I lost all of the money I had with me for traveling and I was very distraught we did not find it and the next day we stopped to have lunch before we left a waitress approached me and she looked pretty excited and she said I’ve been looking for you I think you dropped this little did she know that was every penny I had since I was going home that day I didn’t think I needed that much money so I split it with her because she deserved it for being a great hostess and an amazing human being I won hundred percent recommend this place to anybody whether you’re into the paranormal or not but I would definitely say if you don’t want to be around anything ghostly you may want to think twice because this place is definitely haunted!!!
Deb Miles   September 29, 2020
The staff was accommodating, the rooms lovely, and the dinner on the patio was fabulous. The location was perfect to walk to many of the places we wished to see. We highly recommend it!
Eva Schicker   September 22, 2020
A truly authentic historical inn in the heart of Concord, Mass, that has to be on everyone’s list of top places to visit while in this picturesque area west of Boston. The inn has wonderful rooms with a colonial-era decor, a wonderful restaurant serving generous portions of seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes, as well as a wonderful wood-themed pub. The clam chowder is one of my favorite items on the menu, along with the crab cakes, the burgers, the salads, and of course, the desserts. So visit and enjoy. For COVID pandemic measures (September 2020), masks must be worn inside, and dining is outdoors, with open space between tables.
Lee Lipski   August 30, 2020
Been here before with my wife and had a good experience. We decided to try the restaurant again and they understandably had a more limited menu and enjoyably, outdoor seating. The service was good but the food left a bit to be desired - the chicken sandwich i had was very dry and my wife's meal wasn't cooked well. Given the current situation we're willing to give them a pass and try again later
David Cahoy   August 26, 2020
Outdoor patio, main street Concord. Beautiful historic environment. Generous serving of potroast was great!
PJ Heckman   August 13, 2020
Great place to get a dinner or something light to eat in a historical setting. There is also a pub that often hosts musicians. In the summer, the porch is a lovely place to enjoy outdoor dining! In addition, lodging is available.

I stayed at this hotel last year. When I arrived I was a little confused with parking but then figured it out. When I e needed the hotel and got to the reception desk you could tell the hotel was older. After getting our keys we went down to our room. The room I stayed at was an addition added onto the hotel. The room was nice and the price for it was very reasonable. Staying at Concord's colonial inn was a great experience. The restaurant that is attached to the hotel is very good and prices there are reasonable as well. The one down fall about staying there is how confusing it was to get to your rooms. Once I was there for my second night I got use to it. The hotels spot is perfect as well. When i stayed there I did a lot of walking to different areas and was able to shop around without taking my vehicle. Also the additions to the hotel where very nicely done. The back story about this hotel is very interesting as it was used during the colonial was. It is worth looking into before staying. This place is really worth the visit expically if you like history.
