I'll preface this by saying I booked this hotel because it was the ONLY hotel on Expedia that stated "Two Full Beds". I took this trip with a female friend and we wanted separate beds; needless to say I checked in and they only had one king bed.
The hotel staff at the Colony were AMAZING. The location to the beach is AMAZING. The hotel itself is horrible. This hotel is definitely for a younger crowd who only needs the bare essentials (bed and shower). Our room had NO CLOSETS, NO DRESSERS and there was only one small mirror in the bathroom (if you can call it a bathroom). The entire floor is basically a shower drain as there was no tub or separate shower area that divided the shower area from the toilet area.
Oh, did I mention that the hotel NEVER changed our towels. I stayed three night and had to call the front desk for more towels. Once they arrived, we had to hand them our dirty towels and they made us sign for new ones. I've never been at a hotel where I've had to sign for linen. They said it was to ensure they had enough towels for all guests.
The only reason I didn't give this hotel one star is because the staff were amazing.
