Very nice location downtown. An older hotel that looks great. Friendly staff. It is for being downtown...not on the beach. Reasonable price. Parking. Sunday nights the locals get together on the Zocalo to listen to each other sing.

This hotel is a very unique and located just off the waterfront area on the main street in town. The lobby area is a step back in time. The stairs going up to the rooms have a beautiful stained class window on each floor. There is also a restaurant just to the back of the lobby. You can eat a... More

This 80 year old colonial-style hotel boasts high ceilings, wide hallways, tile floors, AC, rooms with balconies, proximity to the zocalo, and good prices. All are true, plus their restaurant is really top notch. Excellent breakfast, Superb lunch. Friendly staff. It is really the only good restaurant in the town. There is one quite good sidewalk restaurant, The Chantilly, which... More

Stayed three nights over new year, and found the hotel to be adequate for our needs. Air conditioning worked well, and the bed was comfortable, although we would have preferred a king size which the hotel does not have. Housekeeping standards were not the highest - bathroom could have used more attention (hair on the floor, etc). Bathroom was old,... More

We didn't have a reservation, so got a room meant for six people (instead of four). Still worth the money. It was very clean and although the furnishings looked "old" more than "colonial", everything was well taken care of. Beds were really comfy, but the most important things was the air conditioning. It was HUMID and HOT, but five minutes... More

We've spent 2 nights in the Colonial at different times and it is a real throw back to a time when hotels were classy places in the city center. It is spotless, well maintained, and has a nice restaurant. It's also handy for a walking tour of the city center, including the market place, lots of nice shops, the port,... More

We stayed here for one night and found the place a delight. The rooms were large, clean, great bathroom, comfortable bed, and air conditioned. We paid slightly more than normal but found it worth while (400M). Some rooms had a deck looking out onto the streets. We were in the top room, which was a hike up, but a little... More

The property is located in the old city center next to the cruise port. It is in a perfect location if you want to be in the city but not in the beach hotel zone. Most beach tourists will be in another area of Manzanillo about 20 to 30 minutes away. We really liked the hotel and the room was... More

This hotel cancelled our reservation because we were "10 minutes late" and by the time we showed up had already given it to some one else. I would understand their point of view except they never informed me that I had to be there by a certain time. Had they given me a copy of their policies or a warning... More
