We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation in Avalon, NJ. The Golden Inn is closer to downtown Stone Harbor (96th Street) than Avalon (24th Street). It is one of the nicest hotel that we have stayed in on the Jersey shore. Perfect for a relaxing time. You walk by the pool and outdoor restaurant on your way to and from the... More

We had a wonderful time at the Golden Inn. The accommodations were very nice, the room was clean and the beach was fabulous! The hotel was within walking distance of great restaurants and fun bars right on the beach.

Stayed 2 nights at Golden Inn. Stayed in "West Wing" and found rooms to be somewhat dated and noisy. You could hear sounds emanating from rooms next store and hallways readily. Room was very clean and beds very comfortable, but pillow were tired and need replacement. Room had nice color HD TV and good selection of channels. The North wing... More

The Golden Inn used to be a quaint beachfront destination with a great pool and easy access to the beach. Expectations have never been high for the decor or amenities. This has never been a five star hotel. But the current run down, and dirty, state is no longer acceptable. Our room had old stains on the chairs I wouldn't... More

I had a great time. The food was very good & the staff was friendly in every area of the hotel (pool,beach, restaurant, bar). There was some construction going on but it didn't interfere with anything. I WILL be going back.

I was looking for a resort to stay at over the Memorial Day holiday including one that could host her 50th birthday. I decided to rent a cabana at the pool area. We had probably more than 30 guests. The pool / beach bar atmosphere was really fun, the staff did a great job waiting on our guests, and we... More

Nice get away, food was good. Rooms decent, bathrooms small. Beach bar is nice, pool is comfortable. My kids enjoyed the pool area. Only down is there is not a place to shower after check out before the ride home if going to the beach. That was disappointing. Other hotels have outside showers.

We recently booked a block of rooms at the Golden Inn for guests of our wedding, and we were very pleased with how everything turned out. We worked with Nancy W., and she was so responsive and helpful. It's a great option for anyone getting married in the Stone Harbor or Avalon area!
