The hotel is in a decent location walking distance to the attractions downtown. The property is laid out nicely and is architecturally speaking nice. The issue is the property has become worn since the last renovation which has been a while ago. I read all the reviews and manager comments about "what they plan to do" over the course of... More

Terrible experience. Pictures look amazing. They must have used Photoshop. Our room was in disrepair - holes in floor, mold in shower, Wal-mart furniture, etc. Originally booked two nights. Got in really late the first night, tried to get a refund, but no hotel rep available. Left by 7 AM and went to a real hotel. After over an hour... More

We booked this hotel for an overnight stay on a Sunday and it was relatively quiet. We noticed that this place was a little neglected, but we were told the property was in the process of being renovated. Apparently, the property was bought by the owners of the Triada Hotel which is directly across the street. Since they are sister... More

We just got back from a 2 night stay at the Movie Colony Hotel...and loved it. I have to say I was a bit cautious after seeing the recent flood of lower reviews, but was pleasantly surprised really how nice this property was. The self sufficient style of the hotel isn't much of a selling point, but we didn't have... More

Had a great stay here a while back. Its a really swanky old school 30-40's style hotel with not too many rooms. Many of the rooms are close to the nice pool area where its easy to let the time fly on hot summer days with a refreshing drink in your hand. The rooms where modern without giving me that... More

Check in is at 3:00, and the reception closes at 5:00. If you're late you need to go over to their other property, which is so much fun in the 113 degree weather. There is no one to help you with your luggage. Sorry if your room is upstairs and you have a bad back. I got there a little... More

Only stayed 1 night, but loved the location, the style and the room was great. No issues other than the hot water was reversed w/the cold, but the staff was very friendly. They gave us a late checkout for the confusion. The other hotel guests were also fun to chat with at the pool and at the breakfast area. Would... More

What a disappointment! I have come here in the past and this place was incredible. Swanky and luxurious and the perfect vibe. Now it is under new ownership and they aren't even trying to make it nice anymore. They used to put in all the subtle perfect touches: happy hour, the morning fruit and pastries, water with cucumber at the... More

Dear Sad Guest, I am sorry to see your poor perception of the Movie Colony Hotel. It appears that we were unable to get past your memory of previous years. We still have our chilled water out for guests, the music is still played at the pool, the paint is consistently being updated, and we have dedicated, friendly staff members.... More

This place is nothing like it was described. The rooms where like staying in someone's two car garage. Painted floors that was pealing dirty bed skirts. Their sister hotel the triada they told us was associated with the Marriott hotel. Housekeeping did a nice job. The breakfast was the same blueberry bagels everyday.
