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 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

We spent last weekend at the Golden Inn. The location is where you want to be in Avalon NJ in the summertime. The resort did an extensive renovation to the exterior, but they would have been better served to redo the bathrooms in the rooms. Although our bathroom seemed clean, there was mold on the grout in the shower. I... More

We recently stayed for a 3 night weekend. The positives: Friendly staff especially outside around the Tiki bar. Clean rooms. Great atmosphere with the Jamaican style bands playing throughout the afternoon. Food and drinks were reasonable. They would have daily specials on drinks and beers. Beach location is great. No surprises on the bill. Also, made trips next door to... More
