We felt safe on good roads getting to Alamos. The Tourist Police recommended the Colonial and led us to it. It has the best location in town, right by the cool old church. Owners Kelley and Janet are terrific and very attentive. Remodel/decor is fresh and eclectic but still has the Spanish Colonial charm. The open courtyard and rooftop garden... More

I plan to include this delightful oasis in my next travel book, after my agent Paul found it on our way from Nogales to Guadalajara. Hot and tired and thirsty after a long day's drive, we talked the owner and her husband into letting us stay the night even though they were closing for the season and leaving for the... More

Extremely comfortable, warmly decorated, clean, Courtyard could use some maintenance but fits it's age. Was supposed to have coffee & such included but hard to score. Seemed staff was tucked in kitchen but didn't show themselves. Was approached for coffee one morn at 8a.m. but staffer had to run out, meaning I had to wait for their return. We got... More

Was here for the film festival. Absolutely stunning courtyard harden, beautiful design details throughout and tons of southern hospitality from Janet, our welcoming host. "Elegance in the Center" describes this spot perfectly.

Outstanding location, in the centro historico. Stunning courtyard, private gardens, gorgeous hand-picked decor in each room, breath-taking roof-top terrace, wonderful owners/hosts, great coffee, roasted on the premises... Casual elegance, cozy without ever feeling stuffy, this is, by far, my favorite hotel. Ideal for a laid-back week-end, a family reunion or a wedding... You will not regret it!

Sure - outstanding hotel with amazing charm, & beauty located in the heart of Alamos, but it was Kelley & Janet that made our stay something to remember. They have a passion for what they do, and it shows in the way they go about their day. Just down home warm & genuine individuals that made us feel like family.... More

Hotel Colonial is an absolute jewel in the heart of el centro near everything. The new terrace rooftop adds another dimension to an already outstanding place. Small, intimate, charming, and elegant. It's great!

Hotel Colonial in Alamos is simply paradise. Where to even begin? The courtyard bursting with sprays of bright blooming flowers, the private gardens complete with archways and paths, the roaring wood-fireplace in every room, the king-size beds with luxury sheets that call you back to stay a little longer, the hand-chosen antique doors and furniture, the roof-top terrace ready for...

Blown away first by the spectacular courtyard, next by the friendly American proprietors, next by the unique rooms decorated with European antiques, and finally by the full, delicious, included breakfasts. The rooftop garden and courtyard were under construction while we stayed there; will definitely be back to check it out. A block from the plaza, great food nearby, 15min walk... More

Time flies. It's nearly been a year since we stayed at the Colonial. We vowed to write a review about it, but of course never did, until now. But now we're planning our next trip back, so....... If you're heading to Alamos, and even if you weren't, go and DEFINITELY STAY AT THE COLONIAL! It's a great hotel in a... More
