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

f you like vacationing in construction look no further than the Golden Inn. We have been coming down to Avalon/ stone harbor area for over 20 years and have stayed at many lovely places; but I've never been so disappointed and taken aback by how they conduct their business. Before I start the saga, the bill had to be paid... 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!

this Hotel and Conference center was one of the best places I had the chance to stay at. Our group had our annual Spring formal and it was one of the greatest experiences I had the pleasure of having. Everything was amazing from top to bottom and the accommodations they were able to provide for us were superior. Again, the... More

I recently stayed at the golden inn and blocked rooms here for our wedding in stone harbor nj. Although the hotel was nice, we did not receive the same customer service. Almost all of our family and friends that tries to book their room had a problem one way or another. Some did not receive the block rate and others... More

The pool and pool area was closed and it was sunny and 80 degrees. All surrounding resorts were open. We were never notified that it was under construction. Never received our wedding bag that was left at the front desk for us to receive at check in. Bathrooms old. Room was nice size. We were there for my son's wedding... More

While I was not on site for our retreat held at the Golden Inn, I'm told it was wonderfully run and everything was managed very smoothly. Jackie, Jen, and the rest of the events and catering staff were a joy to work with. Very helpful and responsive to all our needs. I would definitely work with them again.

Spent last weekend there. First time in several years that I had visited. I was surprised how worn the room and hotel furnishings looked. It appears this place has gone downhill since I last visited. Very sad. I will stay somewhere else next time.

Dear JJJerry, I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay here. I am not sure if you noticed during your stay, that we are in the middle of a very extensive renovation project here at the hotel which includes both interior and exterior components. It sounds like you stayed in one of the rooms that has yet to be... More
