weekend vacation at colony hotel

desk staff needs to be more professional and attentive. Seems like they hired a college party-goer to run the front desk who spends more time talking to girls and cracking jokes than attending to new arriving customers. Rooms lack everything necessary needed in a room, no mirrors, they have a fridge but no microwave. The weekend I went, they didn't turn on their iconic hotel neon lights outside. Could be a great hotel with a little more professionalism and amenities.

Simple yet great

Staff was friendly. Room was clean. The elevator door was heavy & there was a lot of noise from other guests closing the heavy room doors but I still got enough rest. I would stay here again! I love the location :)

Roach Hotel

This hotel is the best for location. However, the rooms are much too small,and we saw roaches on the bar area downstairs. I would never eat from this hotel. Maintance for the rooms were good, and the rooms were cleaned well. If your looking for the best location stay here, but you must realize everything else falls short.

Miami Beach - overpriced

didn't know that I could park for free on the street with a disability plate: had to use valet parking. Fairly good response. No space in the bathroom to put your things. Small shower with shower curtain rod placed too high, permitting too much water on the floor, and the rod was barely holding the curtain. Except for mold, clean enough. Seat on toilet loose. Asked for seat and mold to be cleaned up. not done. I'd give it a one star
