    Dog Friendly

    Beautiful location, ocean right across the street. Really nice staff. Beautiful and charming hotel. Room was a little small and no air conditioning or TV in the room. Kind of thin walls and had people above us that sounded like they were moving furniture all hours of the night. Beautiful place but not sure of the high cost for what you get.

    Lovely stay

    Loved our stay! We stayed in one of the non-main buildings and I was a little hesitant looking at the pics (and even when we saw the building on the outside), but it was adorable in the inside! Breakfast was great. Location was great. Staff was great. Can’t wait to go back!

    Best Place

    The staff was amazing from the moment we arrived. I was concerned about no air conditioning and TV but truly it made the experience better. The open air and no TV made it easier to enjoy the outside. The beach and pool were both dog friendly.

    Nice Ambiance, No Amenities

    Dogs were welcome, but even with our Service vest ....we were questioned every morning except the 4th day for our complementary breakfast.

    Didn't see in email that there was No TV, No Refrigerator, No micro. Clock Radio was 1 HR.20 mins off.... Couldn't fix it to correct time. Light in closet worked sometimes, never replaced after asking for it to be. Great view of Ocean.

    Great place for pets! Humans too.

    Great weekend at the Colony with our buddy Zeus. He enjoyed the outdoor patio and time at the pool. Staff was fantastic and we appreciate everyone’s efforts to make us all feel at home.

    Beautiful hotel and grounds!

    This was the third time we stayed at the Colony with our golden retriever, and we were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and dogs are allowed in the lobby, the porch, some parts of the patio and grounds. The beach across the street is pet friendly in the mornings and evenings, and there are many places to walk with your pet. We will definitely be going back again!
