Found The Colony Hotel after getting turned away (no vacancy) at another place on Ocean Avenue...so glad that happened!!! Its just around the corner from the Bush compound and the grounds are beautiful, not to mention the ocean view from our room. Verandas abound facing the water, so does the breakfast room and the heated pool and bar. There wasnt...

Upon driving up to this hotel, I immediately imagined what it was like in early days of its existence. i could imagine ladies dressed in their amazing flowing gowns and hearing the music of that era. I love music of the 20's and 30's and I was born in the 70's! This is not to say they play this era...

My fiance and I wanted a quick night away to celebrate our birthdays and our recent engagement and this hotel really provided most of what we needed. It has a private beach where we enjoyed the sunset, until the bugs came out then we moved our party of two to the heated salt water pool that also had ocean views....

Staying at the Colony felt a little bit like a time warp - in all good ways! I stayed during Memorial Day weekend in a gardenside room, and although the room was a bit small by modern standards, it was extremely comfortable. Very cozy bed, a small desk, an armchair, a bureau, and a nightstand with an ipod dock/speakers. The...

My wife and I stayed at The Colony in September and it exceeded our expectations. This is a classic old hotel. Our room was certainly not their most expensive and did not have a/c and at this time of year we didn't need it. Our room also did not have a tv but we did not miss it. We left...

Our one night stay which we cut short was a nightmare! We were booked for the weekend and could not stay more than one night. We were promised a room with a garden view. The room we got was a room with a half dead bush right outside the window which was facing the back end of the parking lot....

We stayed 1night at the Colony hotel. With the windows open, we the sounds of the waves crashing against the gray rocks lulled us to sleep. Very spa like. The hotel is an old historic hotel with beautiful grounds and is on the ocean. There is a lovely pool. The breakfast is included and is fantastic.

We stayed at the Colony during my sons wedding in July. Both families- inlaws and outlaws -were there - 14 rooms total. It was a great trip. The rooms were so clean that after staying one night they were actually cleaner then some hotels when we first check in. The heated salt water pool was great and being able to...

The colony has a great location in KPT -- a nice walk into town, and a few things close by as well (such as Mabel's lobster). The Colony beach is small/rocky but nice and a 2 min walk in front of the resort. We preferred going to the beach or relaxing on the lawn and porch because the pool area...

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night on a trip up the coast of Maine. It was very reasonably priced in comparison to the other hotels in the area. Adding to the economy was the included buffet breakfast, which had a nice selection of food. We were, I think, upgraded to a room with a "shared balcony," which actually...
