After the hustle and bustle of NY, coming to Avon Old Farms was like a breath of fresh air... I had not seen previous reviews or pictures of the rooms before my arrival. The community around it is very wooded and quaint with beautiful "New England-style" homes, an old stone church. Upon arriving, you see a red brick two-story "motel-type"... More

An old fashioned hotel, that gives guests a wonderful experience. Great staff, location and ambience. The scenery of the surrounding valleyviscbeautiful. I love the character and charm over neon and glitz.

The hotel was very clean, with large, quiet rooms and the location was convenient. My big complaint was there was no elevator to our second floor rooms, or to the restaurant on the second floor where full breakfast was available. I was surprised that a hotel of this size that an elevator was not available. I had not thought to... More

We admit to having reservations about staying at the Avon Old Farms Hotel after reading some of the less than positive reviews, but there was no need to worry; the rooms maybe didn’t have the canopy top but they were clean and comfortable. It is an older hotel with character. Yes, there is the occasional nick in a furniture leg... More

I stayed at the hotel on and off for two weeks. The staff are extremely helpful and professional. In particular, Mary, a manager, went out of her way to be accommodating. They have a wonderful restaurant on site named Seasons. The food is excellent and the staff are very nice! I moved to the area and still go to the... More

This is a first class establishment! The room was pristine! Great front desk staff- especially Shean and Mary! The bar was very nice as well- good food and attentive bartender, Renee, made it a very nice Monday evening!

First, this hotel is beautiful with lots of things to keep me comfortable, happy and relaxed-all the amenities a woman would think of. And, It is managed superbly, unlike any others I've visited. There are lots of hard working, friendly employees and security around keeping it clean and safe. When we arrived at 11:35 PM, there was a rowdy group... More

My wife and I had a bad experience on our wedding night so the GM offered us a free stay. We chose to stay on valentines day. We were put up in a mini suite, which I believe is the highest level room. The hotel has a very opulent old world feel. Check in was easy and uneventful. The room... More

I stay at the Inn 5-6 times/year on business. Some of the rooms are lovely, and the bar can be fun. I prefer the "traditional" section. With anyplace, there are low points, and my last 2 visits have been a combination of ho-hum rooms and less than pleasant front desk service. When I mentioned the poor experience at check-out, all...
