Does data centre co-location still make sense for a SMB, or is it time to just go directly for the cloud?

In many ways, both are providing the same service. We have co-located our data centre for quite a while, and in general found it to be effective way of controlling cost, both in personnel and equipment. I can't shake the feeling though that we are simply making an interim stop on the way to the Cloud, which would also enable us to gain flexibility, which is a growing concern as we, er, grow. For the end user, is there a significant difference in the experience between cloud services and co-location?
