We had a large, ocean view room with a walk-in closet. It's a historic (vintage) hotel. The pool is really nice and we took the dog down to the beach with us too. Breakfast was decent. Most of the staff were VERY friendly and helpful. We had a great experience but if you don't like dogs - do not stay... More

I usually do not write reviews however The Colony Hotel exceeded our expectations so much that I must share the experience with others - great value ($149/night), everything about this establishment was outstanding including the service staff, saltwater pool, private beach , gorgeous views of the ocean, stately and well-maintainted property (circa 1912), proximity to town (walking distance to all),...

First let me say that I fell in love with The Colony and Kennebunkport in general, so all the Pros far outweighed the Cons. The only problem with The Colony Hotel is the aloof, complaisant staff who make sure you know the place runs for their pleasure and not yours. There are some exceptions- the front desk staff was nice... More

Stayed here non-consecutive nights on a Maine trip where we made no reservations; last-minute $170 rate at The Colony was lowest in town. First night was an ocean/pool view room that was very hot and loud, though we got a kick out of the late night nude swimmers who thought they were going unseen. Second night was in Gallard House,...

Great place to stay. We stopped in at the last minute and got a great rate. The views can't be beat, the location is great, the breakfast is included and amazing. I didn't hear any barking dogs, as others have mentioned. Great experience.

We did rent the last room available, for a party of three, they were the only hotel to accomodate us at 7:30 pm. I found KBPT is more for couples than a party of three (should have gone to Ogunquit). Anyway, we stayed in the main house, the "limited view" means a view of the parking lot, beeping, honking and... More

I stayed there with my husband and our preteen daughter. This is the second year we stayed for the July 4th weekend. Last year was very nice, so we decided that this would become a yearly tradition. What I now figure is that last year must have been a fluke, because the price had drastically increased this year (almost $500... More

Just returned from our second trip to the Colony. We had stayed previously about three years ago. It was nice then, but has really improved! The service was better, the place seemed spruced up, and the views are still gorgeous. Who would not enjoy lounging by the heated salt water pool or sipping a drink on the veranda? We travel... More
