Been coming to Colonial since 1985. Many great memories.We request the same room every year. It's nice to see how they have maintained the grounds and upgraded the rooms through the years. The location to the ocean is ideal.

The Colonial Terrace met all our expectations and more. The rooms are charming and the ocean views are spectacular. The staff is great and the grounds are spectacular. We will definitely be returning!

I asked for some specifics with our room's location and the staff made sure it was perfect for us. They also allowed an early check-in and late check-out, plus parking for an additional time. The shower took a long while to get hot, and went cold, hot, cold, before finally staying hot, and the bathroom sink was clogged. Otherwise it... More

I have stayed here many times. The entire staff are always friendly,helpful and accommodating. The grounds are lovely and comfortable. The beautiful beach is one block away and perfect for early morning and sunset walks or a campfire in the evening.

Clean, quaint property in ideal location if you want to walk on beautiful Carmel Beach. Just steps away, you can hear the surf from your room. Friendly, competent staff and a nice breakfast in front of a fire each morning... We will be back.

Unit 2 fireplace did not work properly. There was just a tiny blue flame. When we inquired about it, they said that's just how it is. Grounds were beautiful and location great though. 10 min walk to town.

Good: Perfect location, impeccable service, beautiful grounds, amazing linens and pillows, nice breakfast!! Bad: Tiny room with no drawers; paper thin walls in connected room made us feel we had zero privacy.

I recently stayed here over Easter weekend. The hotels in the area were very expensive and I found this place online at a reasonable price. The room was very well kept, linens and towels were in good shape, the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was very small but great water pressure and nice amenities. It is one block from the...

Great location and charming property. Breakfast and service were great. Nice property. Only problem was the room... outdated and very small. Walking distance to the beach. Neighborhood location. Staff notified me when I left something behind. Someone was on site to answer questions.
