Was so great to be back here after many years! It was just as perfect as I remember it being. We had the Ocean View efficiency and it fit our needs perfectly. The view from anywhere there is great too! The pool was refreshing, and the deck was perfect for us to lay in the sun and watch the kids on the beach playing in the sand and ocean. We cooked lobster dinners in our room and had everything we needed to make a great dinner. The rooms are well supplied with things you would need to do so. Even dish soap and a sponge! The refrigerator was a good size for water, drinks and the groceries we both. Can't wait to stay here again next year, God willing! Thank you to the owners and staff for an enjoyable weekend! See you next year!

I don’t even know where to begin with this. Went to this place for a 5 day trip after coming from an awful 2 nights at a lacrosse tournament, hoping for a better situation. Oh boy was a wrong. The hotel it self was pretty bad. Small rooms, with some of the worst beds I have ever slept on. Extremely overpriced for what you’re getting. The hotel next door is much better, and it’s not very close. I brought my golf clubs in an attempt to get out on one of the courses nearby, but after a few days of sleeping on these beds, I quickly ruled that out. Not to mention the shouting that would go on until late at night. The bed had a mysterious red stain on it that looked like some sort of drink, and the beach wasn’t much better either. It was cold, swarmed with kids running around and shouting, and it was swamped with seaweed. Not to mention it was freezing. The weather was terrible, so i was stuck in the terrible hotel half the time with WiFi that didn’t ever work. Overall, this was a miserable stay, and I hope to not come back.

The rooms were clean. The staff was terrific and very attentive. All the other guests were friendly. Great location with a private beach. The hydrangeas were exquisite! Even on a cloudy Cape day, we could sit on the chaise lounges and enjoy the view. Come and enjoy.

The “motel” is not your typical “motel”. It was awesome! The room was spacious and clean, the kitchenette had pots, pans, dishes, silverware etc they even supplied a scrubber sponge and a small bottle of dish detergent and dish towels! The room was super clean, updated and nice and cool. It was so comfortable. We had an ocean view room and were able to sit outside and have morning coffee and look at the ocean. The pool is just steps away and the private beach a few steps further. The pool deck and oceanfront deck had very comfortable lounge chairs and I liked that there was a shower to wash your feet off steps up from the beach. The staff was super friendly and because of the storm coming today the office opened early in case any of us that were scheduled to check out wanted to check out earlier (which was appreciated). The coffee in the lobby in the morning was really good. I will definitely recommend this place for a vacation or short get away. The flowers were beautiful too!

All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice room with all the amenities; it had a fridge, microwave, stove, utensils, etc. Not sure they all have that, but this one did. Very clean room and overall facility. Nice location on the beach and you can walk a good distance in both directions. Also quiet and peaceful, which was nice. Very happy I stayed here.

Went here based on recommendation- pre paid . Small beach , tiny pool ,teeny tiny room for three hundred bucks a night . Everyone is in close proximity . The choice rooms that overlook the ocean are taken by those who come to this same place every year and drink and grill outside their rooms while overlooking the ocean . Not worth the high price and the front desk women except for “ Lisa” were anything but hospitable . When you come in and see signs everywhere like - lose a room key pay 25 dollars etc . It isn’t warm or friendly . You are paying to be on the small strip of ocean . We lost power for over 24 hours in the tornado - glass in pool - .the roof taken off of hotel next to us trees down . We weren’t in the room on the beach like the regulars which would have been possibly better . We had no a/c. No food .No where to go . We were told would get a refund by manager if we left early when the roads were cleared to go home . Got home called and was charged anyway - called motel and was told the person who told us this wasn’t authorized. I thought this was the hospitality business . Won’t be back .

We stayed here with the rest of the bridal party for a close friend's wedding, and it couldn't have been a more perfect and picturesque location. The u-shaped layout made it very easy for everyone to socialize, and the spacious rooms were very comfortable to lounge in. The view of the ocean from every room with spectacular, and very easy to access from the hotel. On top of all that, the staff is absolutely wonderful, kind, and very helpful. I enjoyed every interaction I had with member of the staff, and they went above and beyond after my stay to help me locate and return a valuable item I had left in my room. I am so impressed with every aspect of this motel, and I would absolutely recommend it to any friend or family member visiting the area!

We just completed a two-week road trip and stayed in many places, and Colony Beach Motel is ranked at the bottom of out list. Our experience could be characterized by the response to our initial question to there staff upon our arrival, "What would you recommend as places to experience nearby". The response was "Thats a really good question" for which no further thoughts or ideas where shared.. While the room was generally clean, the set up was odd. Where do you find kitchens with the stove right next to the sink leaving little counter space, where the swimming pool is tightly enclosed with a six foot high fence giving you a caged-in-feeling, where the beach is rocky and generally unusable and there is no availability to walk along the beach because all adjacent properties are "Private", where the grills are so dirty you don't want to place your food on them, where kitchen utensils are so limited it makes cooking a unique experience and where management is unfriendly, inflexible and unwilling to come out and talk with you and basically hiding behind their employees. Overall this is a place to which we would never go back. Of the 8 places we stayed at during our 14 day road trip there were only two of these places we would not go back to and this place ranked the lowest of all in our opinion.

We stayed in one of the poolside units over Labor Day weekend. The room was clean and recently updated. I really like the new comforter sets. The front office serves coffee and sweet bread every morning but if you want a full breakfast you can walk next door. Ask the motel staff for restaurant recommendations for dinner. They have plenty of chairs overlooking the water which was nice especially at the end of the day. The office staff are wonderful and went out of their way to help us with our particular reservation needs. The Colony Beach is like going home for my family. My parents brought us here starting in the 60’s and we learned how to swim in the Colony Beach pool. We have never had a single complaint in 50 years staying at this motel. You can’t get any better than that.
