The room was clean and comfortable. The pool was beautiful! The exterior of the building could have used a fresh coat of paint, and there needed to be some attention paid to landscaping, pulling weeds, etc.
Room rates were slightly steeper than some other motels in town. Avalon offers a 10% discount for AAA and AARP. Unfortunately, there had been a misspelling on my membership card, so I wasn't carrying it -- and there was NO WAY the registration clerk was going to take my word for it!! I thought she could have cut me a little slack, but apparently I don't have a very innocent-looking face ; o)
The room rate includes breakfast. Be a little careful: when you check in to your room, they give you a voucher card for breakfast. On the back of the card, in fine print, there is a list of two or three items that are covered by the voucher.
Service in the restaurant was friendly, but very, very slow. I ordered an omelette, which was delicious, but not covered on the voucher.
When I paid my check, I mentioned that I had read the back of the card too late. The hostess said, "Oh, yeah, that happens to everyone." Seems a little deceptive ...
