Reviewed 27 June 2013

First I'll start with the most positive - great location near the beach in the more quaint side of town. Great outdoor patio downstairs the relax. They offer free wireless internet and loaner passes to the beach. Depending on the room you select it may include free parking. I'd like to see more modern festures overall - if I could book and pay online with a credit card that would be great. I had to mail a check as a deposit. The room keys are actual keys with deadbolts - how about a card swipe system? The halls and rooms were quite small but I guess that can be expected in an old building. Here is my real issue - the quality of workmanship in the place. Walls were spackled and repainted without any sanding, the caulking on the tub looked like a child did it, there were rusty nails sticking out of the wall where it looks like they tried to tack on molding, etc. The stairs, while structurally sound, looked like they had old paint or glue splattered on them. I heard it was a 2 million dollar renovation, but I don't believe it to be true. If you can get past all that for the price paid then you'll enjoy it, otherwise shop around.

We just booked our favorite unit (the Buckingham) and our favorite week for next summer. We didn’t want to take a chance on missing out! The Buckingham is bigger than some of the houses we’ve rented in the past, with 2 full bathrooms, and we can rent for a partial week or a weekend! They also provide beach tags, linen/towel service, outdoor shower and bike rack, and a very helpful Sea Isle City discount card! There are also smaller efficiency, 1 and 2 bedroom units at the Colonnade.

The Colonnade has an ideal location for visiting Sea Isle City, only 1 block from the beach & promenade on 46th & Landis. Sea Isle is a very family oriented and fun shore destination. There is a small amusement park for kids and it’s a safe place for teenagers to walk around by themselves. There’s also some fun nightlife for the adults! We love Marita’s Ice Cream and Carmen’s Seafood Restaurant. Mrs. Brizzle’s across the street has awesome & huge breakfast & lunch sandwiches & Cinnamon Buns. We love Sea Isle and The Colonnade!

Room Tip: The Buckingham unit has two FULL bathrooms, great for getting ready for a girl's night out, a we...

Five of us spent our annual girls' weekend in Sea Isle City, NJ, Nov 16-18. It was Sea Isle's official Girls' Weekend and many of the businesses worked hard to open after Hurricane Sandy a few weeks earlier. We stayed at the Colonnade Inn. The staff was accommodating. We didn't arrive until 8:30pm Friday night and they left the keys for us (no night staff). The location was perfect. We were able to walk to many of the local stores and to the spa. Great bakery across the street. It was a great setup; we had the entire top floor with 3 bedrooms. First time we found a location where we didn't have to rent two rooms. Only problem, no elevator and the suite was on the 4th floor. Also, had some plumbing issues that had not been attended to even after mentioning it to the staff. With the minimum inconveniences, we were glad we were able to help put money into their economy after the storm and of course we will most likely go back!

We rented a 3 bedroom unit on the ground floor in the back of the building. It was disappointing. We thought it was a normal motel or rental not someones condo. Each unit is taken care of in a different way. In this case it was neglected. The kitchen was missing many of the normal flatware and cooking supplies. This was corrected once we complained to the front reception desk. The master bedroom bed was terrible!!! Overall, for the price I was not impressed although the location was good, just 2 blocks from the beach.

Room Tip: If a Condo ask if the owner has been there to keep it up to date or is it somewhat neglected.

To clarify this review, all nineteen units at The Colonnade Inn (ranging from a bedroom with bathroom, up to a unit with 3 bedrooms, two baths, kitchen and living room) are individually owned, but managed by an on premise Rental Program. This Victorian property, known as a Condotel, was built in 1883 and offers units decorated in an eclectic assortment of designs from classic Victorian to Beachy Modern.
The Rental Program offers these units like a hotel, with check in on premise and daily maid service. If there are amenities needed, the rental program takes care of meeting requests, as is noted in this review. The bed in the master Bedroom of the unit in question is also being addressed as requested by our guest.
The Colonnade Inn prides itself in taking our guests very seriously. We address each request from our guests and attempt to please and offer a great stay, as our other reviewers have noted in their ratings.

I have been visiting Sea Isle City for several years now. Aside from renting a house which can be quite expensive, there are few other Hotel options in the area. The Colonnade Inn in by far the best of them!

The Colonnade is located just close enough to the center of town (46 st) that you can easily walk to everything but it's just outside of the "late night noise zone". Aside from it's perfect location, it also offers some very nice accommodations. Complimentary beach tags, outside showers and coffee in the summer time are a major plus.

The hotel is a large Victorian mansion that seems to have been recently renovated with a beach theme. The lobby seems to have new furniture, floors and fresh paint. The rooms are in excellent condition and are very clean. The staff is both friendly and helpful. They also offer a discount card that gives you discounts at some of the local restaurants. This saved me quite a bit of money.

We stayed in the Brittany. This room is located on the second floor and provided a very pleasant and comfortable stay.

I look forward to returning to the Colonnade next month as I now stay there several times per year.

Room Tip: Try the Brittany. It was clean and comfortable.

We had a fantastic time on our vacation to SIC! I have 2 young chidren so, convienence is a NEED! The beach is only a block away!! The outdoor shower at the Colonnade is awesome to have with 2 sandy children when we returned from the beach. There are plenty of reataurants, little shops and grocery stores for all of your needs.
The Nottingham was clean, classy and comfortable!! The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Having an equipped kitchen and getting fresh towels everyday were great ammenities.The beach was magestic and we made many great memories there! I loved that it wasn't overly crowded in SIC like past vacations to other beaches.
We will definitely be returning next summer!!
