Terrible staff. Reception seems like an horror movie. My check-in was completed 100 minutes after my arrival. Noisy place, bathroom dirty, do not walk without flipflops around the room because the floor is dusty. Our door wasn' t closing from outside, we had to call maintenance to let them fix it. The elevator is the worst thing ever. Old and... More

Only stayed one night as we were going from FL to a cruise. Basic but clean. Right near restaurants but they were all quite expensive so check the prices out first as our basic meal & drinks were not cheap and I felt ripped off.

The Colony hotel is such a great place to stay for a visit to South Beach. Location is second to none and the staff and rooms are excellent. The restaurant is such a fun place to eat with great prices and a staff that loves their customers! We have stayed at several other hotels in the area, but The Colony... More

Good: Great location for the night life and people watching. Can walk to all the hot spots and restaurants! Rooms are clean and comfortable. Decent rates. Rooms don't have good views but can't complain for the price. The area is busy and can be loud but couldn't hear the noise with the AC on. If you want to party in... More

I don't normally write on trip advisor but feel I need to as previous reviews had made me very wary of this hotel. ...... It was great. Staff really helpful and friendly. Breakfast lovely and good value. The room was large and very comfy bed. Good value. Definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to be in the middle of the... More

Very stylish hotel in the heart of the Art Deco district on ocean drive! Stylish rooms for reasonable price considering you are in Miami South Beach area! Loved everything, especially the crazy italian staff! Defo will stay here again on my next visit! Top notch!

Booked this room based on location and price. It's an older hotel but offer modern styles and comfort. We were pleased with the room, especially the huge walk in shower. The website I booked the hotel at stated it offered a free breakfast, however it doesn't. That was the only disappointing part. It has no frills like a gym or... More

NASTY, DIRTY AND OLD HOTEL. The bathroom was very small and dirty you don't even get hand towels. The room was very hot and the closet door was broken. The hotel offers internet service, what a joke we were never able to connect. THE BED, OMG was horrible, it would cave to the middle and it made a lot of... More

Nice old building, well presented and clean. Good value for money. Noisy old air conditioning made for a poor night's sleep. Because the rooms are fairly small, the air conditioning unit was only a foot or so away from the bed which caused a real disturbance during the night. The noise of the rattly old unit was intrusive and the... More

Nice clean hotel right on the main strip on ocean drive. No frills but clean and very accommodating. Staff was very efficient and was a great value! I arrived early but they held my bags, gave me a beach towel and called me when room was ready. On check out day they also kept my bags so I could enjoy... More
