Exceptional place to stay. We had a wonderful time staying here. We will definitely return. Very accommodating and friendly people. They were very helpful with recommendations of places to visit and restaurants to try. Very clean and family friendly place to stay.

What a great place. I loved that it was a small older motel with lots of charm. It was the CLEANEST place I've ever stayed (including new fancy hotels). It is VERY well maintained. The staff from the front desk to housekeeping were so friendly and welcoming. They are quick to greet you and have no problem stopping what they... More

This place is immaculately kept, but the bathroom is TINY!!! It takes several minutes for the hot water to arrive, had to run the hot water in the sink, because the tub didn't drain well enough to run the hot water until it actually became hot. The towels were very small and not soft at all. The bed had a... More

One of the things I always look for in reviews is the cleanliness of the hotel. I had noted that the Colonial consistently was rated as very clean. This hotel exceeded my expectations - absolutely immaculate. The bathroom was a bit small but the room itself was a decent size and nicely furnished. The hotel is only a few blocks... More

The Colonial Lodge is conveniently located close to the beach and 96th street. The room was clean and a decent size with a king size bed, small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. The bathroom was dated but functional. Overall, a good value in Stone Harbor. I would stay here again.

Nothing fancy but close to the beach (1.5 blocks), clean, wonderful staff, and reasonably priced. If you like Stone Harbor like we do this place is perfect. Three blocks from center of town so once we got there we did not get back inn our car till we left. For us that is huge.

Before the advent of Mc Mansions along the shore there were many small hotels/motels within walking distance of the beach. This is one of the remaining motels and one of the nicest. Not the latest in trends, but neat, clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and Laurie provided all the help we needed to make our 2 night... More

This is a four star place -- small, original bathroom, few amenities, yet it warrants five stars for things like the following: it was immaculate! I cannot recall a cleaner room in my many travels. The beds and pillows were incredibly comfortable -- a genuine and welcome surprise. The staff is very accommodating -- we interrupted housekeeping two times one... More

The Colonial is the cutest little old fashioned motel--the kind my family and I stayed at in the 1950s. This one is in the gorgeous shore community of Stone Harbor, NJ, and offers a budget option to the expensive hotels in the area. Some of their units even have small kitchenettes. (Actually, the regular rooms have refrigerators and microwaves) You... More
