Fabulous 8.8 From 224 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Stayed at Colony hotel for 5 days in August had a nice time good service, quite small room but nice would be better if there was a coffee machine in room. Nice location on beach and walking distance to village. Nice place to relax after road trip round New Hampshire would recommend.

Maine get-away
Our visit to the Colony was lovely. Staff was great, plenty of room and lots of outdoor space to social distance. The only negative was that the temperature was in the 90's (rare for coastal Maine) and the rooms are not air conditioned- but we turned on the fan in the room and that did the trick- very comfortable after that- wish the staff had recommended that we turned it on at the start of the evening.

Fair 4.0
i paid fir me and my 2 children’s rooms and was very disappointed in their rooms. they looked unclean and i saw bugs in their rooms. 2 on the bed. Also my daughter woke up with bites on her leg which i have pictures of . i was very dissapointed especially for the price i paid per room. cheryl

Great view but not worth the money
The view can't be beat and the pool is lovely. We stayed in one of the adjacent buildings and didn't really think it was worth the money. You don't really feel like you're staying at the hotel. It rained through the night and the rain drops on the AC unit were so loud we couldn't sleep. Also, the AC units were very load themselves. The walls were thin and we could hear our neighbors' TV on late into the night.

Very good 8.0
The Colony is a wonderful ,grand old hotel that is kept exceptionally clean. The only drawback was the lack of air conditioning. It was over 90 degrees the days we visited so the ceiling fan in the room wasn’t sufficient for comfortable sleeping.

Our new favorite hotel
Absolutely adored this hotel. I cannot recommend more highly. From the moment we walked in, it felt like home. Gorgeous views. Old world charm. We were there only one night, but it was amazing. We had a fabulous sunset seated on the veranda. Then a beautiful evening seated around the real wood fireplace. We met several couples for the first time they were instant friends. The room was spacious, large bed with quality sheets, pine floors and meticulously clean. This is a must stay for this area in the fall and we will be back many times.
