Guys…get your act together. You have a great location on the beach in a beautiful town. My family and I usually go to Congress Hall in Cape May in the summer but decided to switch it up this year. Learn from them and other hotels in the area (Windrift, Ocean Club..)that are stepping up their game. Hotel looks great when... More

My wife, 5 year old daughter, and I just returned from a fun 3 days at the Jersey Shore. We made a last minute reservation at the Golden Inn and were very happy with our decision. First of all, it has a great location. The Windrift Hotel and Restaurant is right next door. All of our meals were at both... More

The Golden Inn Hotel was a beautiful hotel on the beach. The rooms, bathrooms and lobby were very clean and beautifully decorated. The staff was extremely friendly and professional. The outside area was very well kept and consisted of a crystal clear pool/hot tub and plenty of lounging with flowers and landscaping surrounding. There was a seaside bar/cabana area with... More

I do like going to the shore and staying a hotel right on the beach. The Golden Inn provides umbrellas, towels and lounge chairs. The pool and outside bar are nice for families...live music at happy hour and drink specials. But the food at the outside bar was just awful. The server was terrific and took my horrible fish tacos... More

Everyone that works there is super nice and the food and drinks were all great. We loved Happy Hour And the games they put out were fun for... More

Great location for a relaxing beach trip. The hotel is on the beach block, so there is no need to cross any streets to get to the beach. Rooms are nicer than many New Jersey beach hotels. However, I feel very satisfied largely because I found a great discounted rate on tripadvisor.com for this stay. If I would have paid... More

Fish tacos anyone.....this is what they served at the golden inn beachbar in avalon new jersey on sunday 8/8 2015. ...just like this.. nothing else with it...they should be ashamed.

Dear Lisa, I am sorry to read your critique of our fish tacos. Typically, we do not recommend any special preparation or modification to our menu items as it can negatively effect presentation and the flavor profile of the dish. More

Spent the night at The Golden Inn Hotel for a friends wedding and could not have been more pleased. The hotel was very clean, the staff was very helpful, and the location was perfect, right on the beach.

We were there last week and coke cola truck took out power line. It left the hotel with no power for several hours. The staff could not have be kinder. They were gracious and generous. They were so upset they could not fill our lunch order - and they had no control. I felt bad for wait staff losing tips... More
