Did not get much sleep - if you want to relax this insnt the place // you hear every other guest through the walls , refrigerator makes horrible noise , garbage trucks at night right in front of the hotel. Worst hotel noise wise I've ever been to .

We stayed at The Golden Inn the last week of August for three nights. Although the location was great, for the price we paid, I expected a more updated hotel. We were on the third floor in the west wing. Our room smelled very musty, the carpet was wet by the sliding glass door, the bathroom was old and outdated... More

Stayed there the last week in August 2014. This hotel provided a wonderful and relaxing vacation. We were there with a 5 year old and 8 month old. Christian and Conner were so accomadting to us at the pool. I know someone mentioned the "pool police" about lounge chairs. But on our first day there we spoke to these two... More

We just returned from a two day first time stay at the Golden Inn in Avalon NJ. Very nice hotel. Much larger than I am used to. Very clean. Room was very nice. I had been hoping for a room where I could hear the ocean at night but we could hardly even see it from our balcony let alone... More

We really enjoyed staying at The Golden Inn. The staff was courteous, and extremely helpful. Our room was clean, very comfortable and the view was amazing. The hotel is just steps from the beach. It's a convenient location especially when you are going back and forth from the pool to the beach. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and... More

We stayed there in mid August 2014. Very expensive rooms for what you receive. Much like Motel 6 but at $325/night. Very noisy and with paper-thin walls. Imagine trying to put two young children to bed after a day at the beach and having to deal with an all-night batchelor party raging next door. The extra special treat was the... More

Fantastic location on the beautiful beach of Avalon! Courteous staff from the moment we checked in to the moment we left, including the gentlemen who set up our beach chairs and umbrella! Cool live music at the poolside tiki bar and great live music in the evening for cocktails and dancing! Only two blocks away from the early morning cross... More

The location is very good between the center of Avalon and Stone Harbor. Beach proximity is excellent as the rear of the hotel faces the beach. The outdoor bar is located by the pool, staff are courteous with drink specials daily as well as either a band or DJ in the afternoon for entertainment. The pool itself is far too... More
