A little run down but still nice. Should have the common balcony open until at least 10PM so that you can sit out and enjoy the evening longer. Otherwise it was a nice place to stay. Clean sheets and nice towels. Would stay again

thank you for taking time to write review. We are constantly working on hotel and appreciate the feedback. The reason the upstairs closes at 8 is because we have rooms underneath it we have to be aware of. We look forward to your next visit. More

Spent one night here. Quiet, clean, comfortable. A 4 minute walk to the beach. Front desk helpful and pleasant. Miguel was particularly nice. I would stay here again, no hesitation. Check out the deck on the 6th floor.

First, my most important feature about a place is cleanliness, and the place certainly was! But the furnishings and linens, flooring, etc were very old and unimpressive. They don't serve coffee until 8:30, which doesn't work well for my other who gets a migraine of she doesn't have coffee at 6am, but luckily, she knew this and brought her own... More

Thank you for compliments on cleanliness of hotel. We are working on upgrading furnishings and the like. Coffee is served from 8-10 am. The patio is open from 9am-8pm. The reason for this is there are rooms under the patio. Also appreciate compliments of staff. Hope to see you again. Mark Phelps More

My knees got so tired from walking up and down the island, even though we rented golf carts. I did wake up with rejuvenated knees, recharged, but with a crick in my tail bone from sleeping the wrong way (my own fault) the bed was comfy and pillows were too. Room was like going back in time just a little... More

3.5 is really the proper score here. There's nothing I dislike about the Hotel St. Lauren, but it is not spectacular. The rates are reasonable and you get what you pay for. The mattress was harder than I care for, but not terrible. I like that it is very convenient to everything in Avalon but not right on the main... More

Just an okay room - similar to a small home bedroom with attached bath. Room was clean, but nothing special. TV reception was very flaky, went out every other line for almost an hour. Wifi wasn't very stable either. Bathroom water was tepid and pressure was so low we could barely rinse the soap off. Walls are super thin and... More

I really enjoyed my stay. My boat was very late, I asked for a corkscrew and the gentleman who checked me in had it to my room, with a wine glass, in less than five minutes. The room was very small but comfortable, big enough to hold a table and chairs with the queen bed. This is an old hotel... More

Just a few blocks from the pier, this is a great hotel and location. Vicki at the front desk was more then accommodating and very pleasant. The hotel was quiet, clean and our stay was quite comfortable. Make sure to check out the 6th floor roof top terrace with amazing views.

I really enjoyed going to this place, our room was clean and comfortable and the 6th floor rooftop view was excellent. The staff was friendly and kind, I recommend it. My wife and I stayed there for one night and the accommodations were a great value.
