“Perfect couples getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

My husband and I were planning a night in Avalon and wanted somewhere to crash for the night that wasn't too expensive. After a little bit of research, and some help from tripadvisor, we decided on the Beachcomber. The room we stayed in was quaint, just about large enough for us 2. It could potentially accommodate another couple, but was perfect for just the 2 of us. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, the unit came with parking, and there is a pool, though we didn't get a chance to splash around in it. If you're unfamiliar with Avalon, be advised that this location is far from places the Whitebrier and Princeton, but is close to the Whitebrier and the beach. All in all, I would definitely stay here again.

This is our 4th visit to the BC! We just booked for 2015. Love the upgraded pool area and the new family friendly events. Especially, movie night by the pool!! Stephanie and gang are awesome and will help you out with anything you may need/want. They even welcome constructive criticism because they really care about making your vacation a great experience. The walk to the beach is really easy (1block) and it's so nice to come back to the pool and hot tub once you are done with the sand and surf!

We go back year after year. Excited to go back because they have renovated their pool area. Lovely condos and convenient location. Very homey feel. I enjoy their pool area and I love their end rooms which have windows on the side and the front. This year we are going with my son and girlfriend and have a two bedroom condo, and I am sure it will be lovely.

Room Tip: condos at the end of the row have two sets of windows....go for them

My friends and I stayed in this hotel and our experience was marvelous! Stephanie and the rest of the staff were super nice and friendly.
We had 2 rooms 307 and 317 although we were back to back (could have been nicer if we were next door to each other) we still enjoyed and love our rooms! It's very clean and spacious. Beach is 1 block away.
We had BBQ by the pool while enjoying the free acoustic concert. People were extremely nice there, they shared their dessert with us! We all wish we could extend! And they let us use their amenities even after check out. Amazing! Free beach tags! We will be back!!! Thank you so much!

This was my second visit to The Beachcomber Resort. I loved it last time and it seems like they have upgraded everything in the last year. The Lobby was renovated. The whole pool area is new. They added a kids pool and a huge hot tub. It is beautiful at night. My room was obviously recently renovated. It seems like the staff has changed as well. Take the time to introduce yourself to the Manager Stephanie. She is a wealth of knowledge about the area and has great recommendations. The staff seems to never stop working for the guests. They even had movies on a big screen by the pool at night for the kids. On Saturday evening, they had live music by the pool as well. The beach is across the street. I will be back again next year!!! Thanks for a great vacation!

Room Tip: While they do not have a restaurant, they have two barbecues by the pool that you can use...

Stayed at the Beachcomber for the first time last week. After a disappointing first room we were offered an newly remodeled room. What a pleasant surprise, this room was beautiful. The staff definitely goes out of their way to accommodate. They keep everything immaculate from the room to the backyard oasis to the walkways. We ended up staying a extra night. As for the Avalon area you can't beat it. Walking distance to a number of restaurants and bars. Beach is beautiful. Only minutes from other New Jersey shore destinations. Hated to leave. Can't wait to return.
