We stayed at this hotel for a family getaway and had a really great time. The hotel was nice, I liked it was an older hotel. Our room was great, the pool was fantastic, the restaurant was nice and all the attractions nearby were so much fun. Our only issue was the wifi, it was really really horrible.

The hotel is beautiful and well located. The large salt water pool is a great feature and was never crowded even in the middle of summer. The breakfast is delicious and an upgrade from the usual hotel breakfast. The proximity to the beach is the best part of this hotel. The kids and I had a wonderful time searching for... More

The Colony Hotel is situated perfectly in Kennebunkport, Maine. The view from the wonderful large porch is Hollywood quality! Not only is the wide expanse of the ocean amazing, but the hotel is surrounded by beautiful gardens that are well tended. The rooms are lovely and are kept looking that way by an outstanding housekeeping staff. The entire hotel staff... More

We have stayed at The Colony Hotel many times over the years. My review may be a bit bias as it is one of my all time favorite places to stay.The Colony is a historic hotel and it is well maintained in the style of the era in which it was built. If you are looking for an ultra modern... More

Tired, old, dark rooms and halls. Rooms need alot of updating. Unfriendly, unhappy looking staff. Not very clean. Perfect location, but thats about the only plus this hotel has to offer. Would be nice with some improvements.

The Colony Hotel has been updated, but has kept the charm of one of the grand hotels of New England. The ocean view from our room was great, but the best views were on the beautiful porches on the back of the hotel. The included breakfast was just what you would expect when dining in a fine restaurant. The hotel... More

We have stayed at the Colony Hotel just two years....in the same room we've requested. This is an old property that's been updated but in many areas has kept it's old charm. It's a hotel where many families have come for generations and keep coming back. During our last stay, there were several weddings. The buffet breakfast every morning is... More

We did not have a reservation but did not have a problem getting a room mid October. We drove to the East Coast to see the Fall color. We planned to drive through Kennebunkport....when we saw this hotel, we decided to stay the night. It was irresistible: the sprawling porches, dining room views, and the ocean. We loved our room...

The moment we walked into the Colony Hotel when we were searching for a wedding venue a year ago, we knew this was the place for us. It really is the quintessential New England old world seaside resort hotel, with expansive porches & large windows to enjoy the sweeping sea views. The experience we had with our wedding there this... More

Came to The Colony for a nursing leadership conference. What a wonderful location. Talk about old New England charm. From the minute you go in you are welcomed by a wonderful staff. I had a room facing the ocean. Very large and spacious with comfy beds. It was very cold in the room and it took me a while to... More
