Looked at the rating and pictures and thought we had found a winner. When we got to our room the mold and mildew smell hit us like a slap in the face. The front desk had no other rooms(hard to believe) but offered to send up an "engineer" with some air freshener. Tired as we were we left and found... More

Booked through Priceline using 3 stars and got this place. My daughter described the smell in the room and bed as "dead bodies". It was old, the one queen bed was so uncomfortable, there as no elevator, of the 3 cardio machines only one worked, and the front desk said there was a fold out couch but we got old... More

We got to Avon after a long drive cross country. We were excited - the pictures online had looked so beautiful! We went into the hotel and were informed our reservation had been cancelled - that we had called and cancelled our reservation by phone. For starters, short of some out-of-body experience, we had definitely NOT cancelled our reservation, or... More

We would like to thank the Avon Old Farms Hotel for a first class stay in the town of Avon, just northeast of Hartford. From the moment you walk into their impressive lobby it is clear this is not your average smaller town hotel. We stayed here for a week while working a basketball camp up the road at Valley... More

The rooms need some up dating. There aren't many options for hotels in this location. Certain aspects of the hotel are very pretty. I've stayed here a number of times over the years and the rooms can really vary. For the most part I have had positive experiences. Staff is always pleasant and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable... More

We stayed there for 2 nights for a college reunion weekend. We picked the hotel because it had personal meaning to us - we had stayed there when we were students. We may not have picked it otherwise. We stayed in a room in the main building. The building itself is quaint and cute. Room was clean, but felt old.... More

Much of the romantic elements were wasted on my wife and daughters stay here as they passed through Avon. There was a strong mold like smell in there first floor room - which they eventually got used to. The poster queen size beds are nice looking but smaller than some other queens (and with the two girls staying together they... More

We stayed here after a wedding. And although the hotel was beautiful and service was great be ware of a 25$ hold per person per room that will be put on your card upon arrival. I don't think if you are not exceeding the room maximum there should be any reason for this.

We recently stayed at the Avon Old Farms for a family event. It is in need of some updating. We had a King luxury suite. Our bed was not comfortable. The linens are sub par. There isn't a fitted sheet on the bottom. It's an old mattress with a feather topper on top covered by a flat sheet that constantly... More

This hotel has pretty grounds set in a nice part of the general Hartford area. My family stayed here in part because there was a great deal to be had, and in part because many of the better deals in Hartford require staying either near the airport or in less scenic parts of the area. This is a very nicely... More
