The hotel is perfectly located, and the tomes are superbly appointed. The only reason I didn't give it a 5/5 rating is because there was a large party that had reserved most of the...

The staff were friendly and accommodating...storing our luggage at the beginning and end of our stay. The cookies and milk every night added to the experience! We can't wait...

Friendly staff, very helpful! Anissa was absolutely the best from making dinner suggestions to accommodating our decision to stay another night. We were sad we didn't get to say goodbye to her as she was fantastic :)

The room was phenomenal, great view, jacuzzi, bed, room accents, etc. Great view, staff was super friendly and accommodating. Cookies were fresh and tasty (Otis Spunkmeyer). Only minor nit, for the Ocean View Suite there were some beach flies buzzing around on the porch (bought some Raid and took care of them). Highly recommend!

My husband and I stay here for the first time recently and were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Unlike many of the hotels in Avalon, this one didn’t feel run down. We had a great room, mini bar was reasonably priced (shocked and awed!), in room coffee maker, and bath robes. The hotel provides a light breakfast, wifi and beach...

Amazing. I planned a girls trip with a few of my best friends and after reading comments on tripadvisor I picked this hotel and I am so glad I did. The entire staff is so nice and made us feel so welcome. Thanks for such a wonderful stay.
