Place is loud, surrounded by bad places to eat, the elevator looks to be from the 60s. The room is fine but our floor had not been swept. Bathroom is tiny. Rooms were right on Ocean which means you can hear people screaming and partying all night. If you are over 24, pass.

Yikes G B, what a frightening review and experience you recently had with us! The hotels on Ocean Drive do seem to experience more noise. We are located right on the strip. If you are looking for a more quiet and secluded stay, we are not the place for you. Scarlett Mona More

i stayed at the Colony Hotel a few years ago and since then they have renovated it and spruced the hotel up. Nice green colors in the room. Yes the rooms are small but you don't go to South Beach Miami to stay in your room. It is located in the heart of the Art Deco district on Ocean Drive.... More

The place is difficult to approach, as it is on Ocean in the heart of cruisers paradise. You must Valet at $25 per day. Rooms are small, but clean. No coffee maker, but there's a fridge. Although it is right in the heart of the action, the rooms are surprisingly quiet, even on the first floor. The restaurant is average.

They claim their beds are Queen size that is a lie!! They are full size. The bathrooms are so small and there is no place to put your personal belongings. You have to place everything on the floor. No screens on the bathroom Windows, can't leave it open because all kinds of things fly in. The food is ridiculously expensive... More

Very well positioned hotel but extremely noisy and not particularly friendly staff. The staff at the bar was however obliging. Separate from the hotel. The bar and restaurant was good. Hotel has noise all night between late comers, kitchen noise, re setting tables etc... non stop all night. Not very confy either but clean.
