The room was virtually clean.cleaning staff was extremely diligent. The night office attendent was smoking pot in lot and was passed out with door locked. we were not even able to get ice. I would not recommend this motel for anyone who wants any service whatsoever

We had a cute little (emphasis on little) room. Room was clean but door lock was hard to work and there was no safety chain. Volume on tv remote didn't work. Absence of a wifi system seemed strange in this day and age. Thermostat on heating system didn't work well (it ran too hot). We finally got things stabilized by... More

Not a non-smoke room as specified; not clean sink, carpet, or furniture; no safety chain on door; signs of people loitering outside of door (each door exits to outside); noisey, clogged plumbing; but $88 versus $136, so we took it (and lived to tell about it)

Stayed the weekend at the motel. It was located close to Boston and right on Rt1. Rooms were nice. I read the other review when I got home and this is the only reason im writing. We got a non-smoking room and it smelled fine. Everything else was what you would expect from a small motel.

liked the name online, got in the room, and saw why they have no pictures on their site. The room smelled like smoke, there were cigarette burns in the carpet. The nightstand was full of graffitti in the drawer. The shower was small, with no full size towels. The entertainment center was chipped. The bedding even smelled of smoke, we... More

I was pleasantly surprised when i checked in to the Avalon Motel. I was in Boston for the weekend and didn't want to pay the high Boston hotel prices and found this small motel just outside of Boston. While the Avalon is not in the upper end of the Hotel scale they do offer a clean, neat and friendly environment.... More

Yes not only does the Avalon allow 18 plus but it also allows other questionable activity. On any given visit Ive had fellow guests that were dealing/doin drugs, prostitutes, amoung other criminal/perv intented. The price is right but you get what ya pay for. So keep that in mind. Definately NOT a family place for gods sake!!!
