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

There are some down sides to the Colony. The room was on the small side, and the shower was long but narrow. The bed was noisy, which is probably my biggest concern. On the other hand the floor we were on was newly painted, and while the room was smallish it was adequate. I found the staff to be polite... More

Stayed 4 in a double bed room and it was pretty cramped. Didn't like the $20 pp extra per night fee. Great location but a tad expensive for what it is but you on right on south beach which can be a positive or negative thing depending on what you want...

On arrival we had to walk through the restaurant and bar area which does not belong to the hotel, the reception desk is way in the back, the man that checked us in was miserable and didn't talk at all, just took passport and our name, gave us two key cards and that was it. The hotel is small, the... More

It might be the location, but the people at the frontdesk do not show any interest in their customers. The room itself was very old. Bathroom door broken, poor water from the shower and just by touching the airco, the plastic dropped down.

This hotel is good value for money. Very simple accommodation and services, but fantastic location, beach is right across the road and you are in the centre of night life. We got what we expected for this price.
