Antioch, California1 contribution
Staff were great! Very welcoming and super considerate, they suggested things I actually needed before I asked. Location is great! Super close to the beach! Great view from rooms! The overall look to the hotel is vintage, but kind of run down, carpets and furniture felt like they were close to their retirement time. But it didn't make too big of a difference, since we were out mist of the day anyway! But overall very good!

The property is beautiful. It is very close to the beach and within a 5-minute walk you are on this and having a good time. The rooms need updating and the sidewalks around the facility need to be fixed.

We stayed here for our daughter's wedding weekend. We had an ocean view and a little balcony. We had a two bedroom with a great dining area. Beautiful patios and very kind staff! Great walking location to beach and town. We will definitely be back!

I would recommend the Colonial Terrace for location and price. Easy walk to the beach. Great views. Friendly staff. 5-10 minute walk to Downtown Carmel. I would recommend parking at the hotel and walking from there, as parking comes at a premium.

The highlight #1: Helen at checkin. Highlight #2: the terrace and grounds. From there it was ALL downhill: broken blinds; furniture in disrepair (I don't mind "old", just keep it up); because my son used a "third party" to reserve, there was zero consideration of complaints (lesson may be - don't use third party to reserve); mattress was questionable; etc.. The price was outrageous for the product and service received.
