    Very Good8.0
    Overall, a pleasant stay
    The First Colony Inn is a nice inn to stay for vacation. There were a few minor problems with our room, however, that needs to be addressed. Upon arriving at our room, the smell of bleach/disinfectant was almost overpowering.The maid apparently cleaned our room just before we arrived. We are glad they cleaned our room, and it was cleaned appropriately, but the smell was quite strong at first. Also, the toilet was running constantly. IIthink it needs a new flapper or seal. It's a good thing we arrived when we did or the water loss would have been horrendous had it been a number of hours running unattended. Also, the mattress (or the mattress topper) was in need of an upgrade. If you sat on the side of the bed, you would nearly fall off because it nearly dropped you on to the floor. However, we would say that are stay was good overall, and we would recommend staying at this Inn!

    Love this place! Lots to do here, room was lovely, and they had a lot of "equipment" you could use as a guest (bikes, pool, boogie boards, etc.) Food was amazing! <3
