Several generations of roaches and waterbugs filled our room. Holes in the walls. Bare wiring. Rotted carpet. Moldy walls. Filthy greasy kitchenette. See through glass doors with no curtains. Pull back the sheets and watch roaches scatter from under the sheet. Rusted out air conditioners allow bugs entry. Broken fixtures leaving sharp ceramic edges unsafe for adults or children. Security... More

My wife and I stayed here last week, Jan 15-16, while we were there, there was a fence company installing 12by12 footers around the premises to install the barriers needed to start demolition. We had a smoke detector that was beeping every few seconds and the maintenance man blatantly told us he was leaving next week for a new job... More

This hotel may have been acceptable 50 years ago but it is crumbling and falling apart. It is a dump. There were 15 of us in our group so we had the chance to see about 6 or 7 rooms and they were all deplorable. We felt it was a very valuable piece of real estate and perhaps the owners... More

The rug was filthy, roaches when I turned on the bathroom light @ night. Lock on the door was ridiculous, a 5 year old could push in the door. You could not shut let alone lock the bathroom window. There were extension cords running behind the bed to the AC unit. Should have brought rags from home, they would have... More

I travel for a living so I know my stuff. They use the buzzword "resort" to lure those with hopes of a good deal at a fine place. It is far from a resort. It is a Motel with a capital M. The girl at the desk was nice. The vending machine was nice. The pool was ok. That's it.... More

I went to the Avalon because I love being in front of the beach in a great location. You can walk to the Galleries and to the supermarket. They are painting the hotel and making several changes. No holes in the wall. very nice people working at the hotel. The micro was broken and they changed it immediately. You are... More

If I could go back in time I would take $1300 that I spent sleeping in this unsanitary health hazard and shove it up my own rectum. I would rather sleep on the beach with my wife and child for nine days than go through another stay in this dirty place. The room smelled disgusting, carpets were dirty and stained.... More

I recently booked at the Avalon and upon check in and viewing our room we decided not to stay. There were many problems with our room including numerous stains on carpets and mold on our pillows. I think the hotel needs some major renovations as the rooms are disgusting. There were 4 girls on a weekend trip and actually felt... More

I had a reservation and when I got there the reservation was not what I had asked for, when I complained the front desk person screamed at me and my wife telling me to find another hotel, I had to leave and spend the night in the car with little children. They did give me back the money that had... More

The hotel was the worst I ever seen. I do not mind that it is old and simple, but this hotel was dirty and the rooms had mildew. There was holes in the wall because of moll. I got to see a different room, but it was even worse. When I wanted to terminate the reservation, the staff got difficult.... More
