Booked a deluxe 2 queen beds room for 4 of us. Very friendly and helpful staff. Got to the island early, was able to leave our luggage in closet until our room was ready, which they called to let us know. Loved the closeness to the main part of Avalon. The room was nice, and the large refrigerator, microwave, and... More

I never got the chance to stay in this Hotel due to the lack of professionalism of the staff. Well only one staff member. When I first called I spoke with Jimmy and he was actually very helpful with prices and accommodating me but when I called back to reserve my room on 08/04/2014 @ 9am I spoke with a... More

We were not bothered by having to climb stairs, or that this was an older property. It was nice having a frig and microwave. But no coffee maker and you have to ask for a hair dryer. There were some hairs in the bed that were not ours, dirty tiles and from the spots afraid to guess when the pillow... More

Stayed here June 24 & 25th 2014. Its an older hotel, so I didnt expect it to have all the bells & whistles of a modern hotel. We stayed in the Marilyn Monroe Suite. Very Spacious room, loved the chandelier and the fact that we could open the windows & get fresh air. One of the windows did not have... More

We came for our romantic anniversary, and between the constant construction going on right outside our room and windows, the mediocre continental breakfast and the price, we were not impressed. There is no clock in the room, probably so we wouldn't know what time it was when they started sawing right outside (it was 7am). When the housekeeper came to... More

The Glenmore is a good value. The Marilyn Monroe suite was fun, black chandelier,nicely updated with jacuzzi tub. The staff were nice & rooms clean. The continental breakfast was ok, just enough to get you started. This room faces the street which can be noisey. Easy walking distance to all coffe shops & restaurants.

We arrived at the hotel on February 15th, 2014 for a relaxing romantic night and what we got was the complete opposite. First of all, the room was not ready for check-in. We were told that we would have to wait an hour because the hotel was checking out a lot of rooms (not my problem!!). Secondly, there were no... More

Quaint hotel, older but WONDERFUL! What a pleasant surprise. Clean rooms with character, excellent beds. Some rooms with Jacuzzi tubs. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Friendly, small town feel. Great price too! Highly recommend!

Awesome place, friendly staff, just steps to the water. I went on my honeymoon and they upgraded our room. The room was beautiful, the bed was so comfortable. Close to everything. Wouldn't stay anywhere else!! The staff help was helpful on planning our daily adventures.
