The room was nice and modern, everything was neat and clean. I really enjoyed the location, we were right next to the beach! The front desk was very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

I have always wanted to stay at the Colony because it's like a landmark hotel on Ocean Drive. When we got there the room wasn't ready so we had drinks at the bar. The bartender was very nice and made good drinks. Then we were told that our original 2nd floor room (2 doubles) had an A/C problem. So we... More

Colony must be one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at. First the staff was unfriendly and RUDE! Second, they promised our hotel rooms would be ready at a certain time and they weren't. When we finally got into the rooms they were dirty. The sheets looked like they weren't even changed and the towels looked dirty. Overall the... More

The original reservation was changed from a Room for one person to a Room with two beds for teo people, this was not what we were given when we checked in. The 50" TV screen in the room was totally out of place, considering the size of the tiny room. The bed, real low to the ground on a wooden... More

Parking is terrible, we got there at lunch time and it was difficult to park and lug our bags for our weekend stay the parking was like $40 for two nights. Now my cell phone got stolen, and the maid who stole it charged... More

Stayed for two nights on 5/19-5/21. Got the room for $92/night on [--]. Normally stay at the Beacon, but they've renovated, and their prices have skyrocketed. The room was small, but the beds were comfortable, and housekeeping snuck in at some point during the day, so we had clean linens daily. Right on the beach, perfect spot on Ocean Drive.... More

In an ideal world, the Colony Hotel would be splendid thanks to its fantastic location, art-deco style and more-than helpful staff. Bush, however, has altered my, ours and everyone's vision of what is considered an ideal world. The Colony Motel, for realism's sake, is a shack built on stilts. Although you will see its perky pink lights glowing high above... More

I'm writting this review from the room, I've checked in ten minutes ago. I booked this hotel because I read the reviews of Trip Advisor as I always do and most of them were ok. First thing I didn't like: No valet parking. I had to walk 2 blocks to find the valet parking guys, but I couldn't. Second: The... More
