The hotel room was noisy due to the parking next to the door - car doors slamming and kids yelling at all hours, Bring earplugs. Bed mattress was worn, furniture and rug dated, but bathroom very clean. I loved the outdoor pool with food service including sandwiches and drinks. There was a person there to hand out towels and check... More

We had a clean, spacious room. The beds are very comfortable with plenty of pillows. We requested a refrigerator for our room and it was there upon check in. Plenty of parking. Very friendly staff. On-site restaurant is expensive but the food is delicious. Free breakfast is only Continental, and nothing special. There is a Dunkin' Donuts close by and... More

Just returned from Ct after a long weekend with family at Avon Old Farms Hotel. The best part of the site is the huge shower in the handicapped room and the worst was the constant reminders of numerous dogs staying in your wing of the hotel. One Westie in particular barked the whole day for two days running. The staff... More

This was our second visit to Avon Old Farms Hotel. The positives - spacious rooms, attractive building, small restaurant on site. The staff in the bar / restaurant are charming - slowish service but very friendly. It is a bit more hit and miss on the reception desk. Some staff were extremely friendly and helpful - one particular member of... More

We chose this hotel because it is pet friendly. Glad we did. There is plenty of walking for you and your pet. The hotel has a fenced pool and an onsite restaurant. We didn't use either while we were there because we were visiting family. There is even a shaded gazebo along one of the walking paths. There are plenty... More

Colonial-era furnishings and architecture. Old-fashioned lovely, but now is worn around the edges and in need of updating. Hallways and my room were uncomfortably chilly. Room is clean and spacious, however A/C is loud. Comfortable bed, but squeeky from age. Motel style rooms are different than Hotel style. You may want to check what type of room you are getting...

I would return to this hotel. It was beautiful. Customer service at check in and the restaurant were friendly. The cookies in the afternoon at check-in were a must have.

Nice room with a comfortable bed, however I would have preferred one comfortable chair in the room rather than three dining room style chairs around a low coffee table. The staff at the reception desk was courteous and friendly, too; I guess I'll have to plan a return visit in order to try their fresh-baked afternoon cookies!
