Hard to beat the weather in Kennebunkport in August. Warm days and cool night. The Colony Hotel is a "throw back" -- no air conditioning, no TVs in rooms, but a lot of charm and you really do feel like it is 1950 vs. 2016. (except I am tying this in my room on the computer) Large pool that is... More

We've going to the Colony since our kids were young, and every year, we leave with he same comments. 1. We LOVE this hotel. The rooms, although lacking AC, are really nice. Even on the hottest night this summer (we just left), we slept comfortably. 2. The housekeeping staff is EXCELLENT. Every morning, by the time we returned from breakfast,... More

We stayed in Room 216 this past weekend for a wedding nearby - and it was tiny at best. On one side of the bed, I literally had to turn sideways to get out of bed. We were also told one rate when checking in, and ended up paying much more when checking out. The breakfast buffet is incredible, please... More

The hotel,and location are unparalleled - it is a historic hotel, beautifully maintained. The rooms are a decent size, there isn't air conditioning or television. The staff are friendly and hard working.

Stayed at the Colony with a group of girlfriends for the weekend and we booked a 2-bedroom suite (two queen beds in the big room and one twin in the second room). This place is adorable if you appreciate old charm. The room was spacious and clean, there was an enormous walk-in closet, and the bathroom was pretty big with... More

We stayed here for a long weekend towards the end of July. The Hotel is in a spectacular location close to the beach and the views from the Ocean side rooms are really nice. We are a very well travelled couple and we know that there will always be many pros and some cons that go with any hotel wherever... More

The Colony Hotel is a beautiful old hotel, but you need to know that it best for a walk-through visit, or perhaps a meal. Plan to actually stay somewhere else to avoid aggravation. The management is quite busy with weddings and not interested in ensuring good customer service. If you are attending a wedding there, go and enjoy it, but... More

We stayed in the East House which was a typical Maine-style establishment. Not exactly luxurious but did have A.C. the real charm is with the hotel itself. The view, the pool, the location...all wonderful. The breakfast iserved included and quite lovely. The drinks by the pool are spot on. While more actual service around the pool would be nice and...

It was very quint and the bed very comfortable. The whole hotel is beautiful and there are many verandas with views of the ocean.... More

Hotel has a great ocean view, even if you do not have an oceanfront room. Lobby and pool overlook the Atlantic Ocean. Pool is heated, so cool Maine weather is not a problem hen swimming. Breakfast buffet was OK, not great.
