My wife and I enjoyed a really great time at the Seaglass Restaurant last night, Saturday, July 19th. The entertainment provided by Greg Martiello & The Chosen Few was absolutely fabulous. The staff was very accomodating and our dinners were delicious (Seafood Chowder, Surf & Turf, Grilled Salmon, desert and great drinks, especially the FRESH coffee at the end of... More

What made our trip enjoyable was the towel girl named Taylor. Because i have walking difficulty she put chairs up for us and brought our towels after being in the pool.... More

Me and some friends just stayed here over Fourth of July weekend. The room was very damp - like the carpets were wet. All of us immediately experienced allergy symptoms which were not present before getting there. Now we are all sick with sore throats, headache and generally feeling ill.I believe the room has mold/mildew which caused us to get... More

My wife and I were looking for a special place near the beach to spend a few days after my daughter's wedding. With 18 months of planning and the actual event completed we needed to get away just the two of us for a few days. Based on a long ago experience at the Golden Inn we decided to book... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to stay that was on the beach and close to dinning and shopping for a relaxing weekend. We decided on the Golden Inn and it was perfect. The room was clean, beds were comfortable and the location was perfect - right on the beach, with a pool and a beach bar.... More

We really enjoyed staying at The Golden Inn. It was clean, people were friendly and helpful. It's a convenient location. The rooms have a coffee maker & refrigerator, balcony, flat screen tv with plenty of channels, not that you should be watching tv while staying here! Offers a pool, outside restaurant with bar, right off beach. If there was any... More

Just got back from a fabulous extended weekend in Avalon. We love staying here. Going back and forth from the pool to the beach and then back to the pool is easy and the staff is so friendly. They will set up complimentary chairs and umbrellas for you right on the beach...plus bring you food and drinks poolside while the... More

Wonderful location, can't ask for better. Staff are very friendly, but seem to be new as it is early in the season, which is okay. Easy walk to the beach and the pool is a good size. Beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows, however, the sheets were not very good and somewhat scratchy. Newer sheets would be a big... More
