Stayed at Colony Hotel in January 2014 for eight nights. The price was very good and also the location at the famous Ocean Drive. But do not expect too much from the hotel itself. Rooms are really small and the bathroom didn't have any shelfs at all. Our keycards stopped working often and we had to go downstairs to the... More

We stayed here on our first visit to Miami and honestly wish we hadn't. Sadly the hotel is "very" tired looking and just doesn't cut it any more, living in the past. It was well positioned for the beach though and the guy on the desk was a good help. The room was just not nice, cockroaches, dirty and cramped.... More

Nice hotel in a really good location. Right on South Beach - close to everything. Room was what you would expect (we got a cheap rate) and that's ok because you don't go to Miami to stay in your room all day. I would definitely stay again!

The room and location were nice. I enjoyed the facilities and the shower was exquisite. However, this did not make up for the extra hour that it took us to get in to the room after we arrived. The receptionist seemed confused and unprofessional, repeatedly running up and down the stairs and making unexplained phone calls while we waited. Apparently... More

It was just ok...I was really disappointed in the area in general so I am trying not to let this effect the hotel review. Below is a very detailed account of our disappointments. The short version is I won't go back, I won't stay at that hotel again and I would not recommend it. Read on if you would like.... More

As an avid traveler, allow me to give you a review you can count on. I paid for my room before I got there. Which was so much easier. They only hold $50 on a CREDIT CARD (or a Bank debit card). No prepaid cards allowed. If you have to use cash for the incidentals its $500. I was checked... More

This hotel was better than I was expecting. Having read the reviews on trip advisor, I was nervous about my booking, but really wanted to stay in a classic art deco hotel. I'm glad that we went with the Colony. My 2 teens and I felt welcome and we really enjoyed our 4 day stay. We were greeted by Carlos... More

To start off I'm here now as I'm writing this. The toilet makes this noise for 2 minutes after you flush. The Chinese lady doesn't clean your room till you leave. The lobby smells like straight dead fish. Every damn time you walk outside they ask if you want to see their menu. There food sucks. The rooms feel like... More
