We didn't reserve a room for our impromptu visit to Seaside just after the 4th of July and hoped that we'd find a vacancy because it was a weeknight. The first place we stopped had changed management since our last visit, and we didn't like the looks of the place, so we moved on. We stopped at the Colony next and never left! The room was very clean and fresh smelling (a rarity in an ocean-front resort) and the price was in line with others at this resort. Sunny was the most accomodating hostess I've even encountered; not only did she make sure our special needs were met, she went out of her way to ask about our stay and recommend dining options to insure we had a relaxing mini-vacation. We were visiting from California and had New Jersey relatives join us for one day at the boardwalk. When they arrived at the motel, Sunny greeted them and showed them where to park. She knew they were visiting us because we'd asked if they could park there for the day. She directed them to our room as though we'd been staying there for weeks and were old friends.
The flowers on the building and in the yard are a nice touch. And the linens were good - no scratchy towels! We extended our stay into the week-end because we were enjoying being at the Colony. This was the best visit to Seaside we've ever had!
In short, we were treated as guests, not just a paying visitors who'd be leaving soon and needed to be tolerated. Sunny will do her best to make sure your stay is enjoyable. If you are looking for a clean, safe, friendly place to stay, then the Colony is it!
