I've seen some negative reviews about the Golden Inn and I don't understand them. My stay was fine and I liked how they did not "nickle & dime" you on beach chairs and beach passes, which were included in the cost of the room. In addition to this, I received a $100 voucher for food & drinks. Luigi's restaurant serves... More

My company has been to the Golden Inn for a weekend business trip for many many years. The hotel has a great set up, in that the pool area, bar and food area is right outside the hotel, and on the beach. If you have kids, this is a great set up. The Meetings Department is very accomodating and stays... More

Loved staying here. Right on the beach. No schlepping beach chairs, towels and umbrellas to the beach as they hotel provides them - as well as beach tags. Loved the pool area and having wait service right there. Our room was very comfortable and clean.

The only good thing about this "resort" as they call themselves its the distance to the beach and its close to the shopping center. It has a mini fridge and a balcony. HOWEVER, its not worth 650.00 for 2 nights! and that was a Groupon deal because the Golden Inn Hotel rate is much higher! Checking in you are greeted... More

I have been going to Avalon for the past 20 years but never stayed at the Golden Inn until last week. I would have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. While the hotel was not Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton caliber it was comfortable and convenient. I especially appreciated the quick and easy access to the beach, complementary Avalon... More

The law of supply and demand is evident in Avalon, NJ. We paid $400 per night with the expectation of staying at a 4 star hotel. WRONG! The outside of the hotel will lead yo to believe this is a great hotel. That's where it ends. When you check in they offer you free beach tags but you have to... More

We've been staying at the Golden Inn annually since 1982. This is my first TripAdvisor review and it applies to the hotel quality today after a recent stay. Firstly, if you are planning to spend a week in the Avalon/Stone Harbor area, I highly recommend that you rent one of MANY beach houses in the area, especially if you have... More

Booked this hotel last minute for a long weekend. Great location. Nicely updated pool and beach bar. Lobby was also nice. We chose the basic room and it really needed updating as previous reviewers mentioned. Older but mostly clean bathroom with some minor mold on the ceiling. Old television (but we weren't there to watch tv anyway). The air-conditioning was... More

Found this hotel last minute and decided to take kids 17,15,11 for a 2 night getaway. So much nicer than I was expecting! Clean updated room, great staff, poolside bar and grille, steps to beach, chairs and unbrellas set up for us, very relaxing, a great alternative to a rental. Very happy.
