“Fantastic hotel, beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

Can't fault this beautiful boutique hotel. Lovely room, fantastic food and a very pretty garden with lots of seating areas. The staff were very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A real gem!

My fiance and I have just returned from a wonderful mini vacation getaway to the Colony Palms hotel.Fantastic! We live in a mountain resort,hour away,yet we wanted an experience similar to going away to Hawaii for a week,something a complete change from norm.The hotel was just that.Once there,there was no reason to leave.The Staff from pulling up to the curb,to pool side service made us feel like we were a happy family ,and treated with great comfort.After a excellent dinner in the returant,and a complete mental detox by the beautiful pool,there was no leaving.We spent our complete time there,joyful as can be.We had come previously for Valenties day getaway,so we were prepared.A word to all you romantics ,this is the place!!! Peter...lake arrowhead

Room Tip: Get a patio,it's great

you can immediately see what drew the likes of Bogart, Lombard & Gable to this place, it is a little bit of paradise in Southern California. The pool and attached Purple Palm restaurant and bar make this stay so relaxing and the Moroccan spa is the cherry on top. The food and cocktails are perfect and the rooms all relaxing and individual. Definitely worth a visit.

Room Tip: Room 29 was away from the pool and perfect for a romantic stay-great walk in shower

The grounds are meticulous. The vibe is serene.. The staff is excellent. Privacy -food and ambience are all over the top.
We would definitely come back again.
I would suggest they change their policy and say "No children allowed".

If you are looking for an amazing getaway, and if you want to take your little four legged friends, look no where else than the Colony Palms Hotel. We have been going there for five years, and this review is long overdue. Thank you to David, Jason, and Christine for making this our home away from home. They treat us like family and look after our needs.

I stopped in at the hotel in the afternoon and asked how much for the next two nights. They quoted me one price which was too much and as I started to leave they offered me the price of $199.00 a night. That sounded good to me! I was thrilled. When I checked out two days later my bill said that I owed an additionall $26.00 a night as a "resort fee." So the room cost $225.00 a night NOT $199.00. I feel I was tricked. Hotels don't tell you the real price anymore. They suck you in and then stick it to you. Now we all have to read all the fine print on every reservation we make online and we have to grill the front desk as to all the little extras they will sneak in on us. I will never go to The Colony Palms again. I don't trust them. The federal trade commission has sent letters to the large hotel chains telling them that the "resort fee" policy is not a policy that they should be making. Let's do all we can to put an end to it.

Room Tip: Ask about resort fees.
