I used to stay there as a kid during the 1970's and it was a grand old belle with pride in ownership and management. Alas, that is gone now. It has not been renovated since then; everything is run down and old. The restaurant has taken over from the old style grand hotel restaurant. So sad. With that said, the staff was friendly and rooms were ok, but sad to see how much it has lost in class, appeal and elegance. It needs fresh blood and ownership to invest and renovate, bringing the old Colonial Hotel to the stately position it had for a century in Cape May.
