We had our dream wedding here in September of 2018. Gale made it happen and all come together so beautifully! Her staff was wonderful, kind, and helpful. They went out of their way to make it such a special, smooth weekend. We are forever grateful for everything they did! Also, their Sunday brunch buffet is the BEST!!! THANK YOU!

The customer service I received at this hotel exceeded every expectation I had. From the moment we arrived the staff did everything they could to accommodate us. When Patricia found out what we wanted to see, she had printed out directions, with tips, to help us plan our weekend. The receptionist actually moved our room (at my request) to a building where we were the only guests. That was wonderful. Seriously, they could not have been nicer. Also, they are following every COVID guideline and they're wipes and hand sanitizer everywhere. It's hard to be critical when the staff is so nice but it was not the most comfortable hotel. While the backyard was very peaceful and the shared spaces nice and sometimes even charming, the rooms themselves are small. I wish I had a desk! Also, the WIF is poor.

My son and I spent 1 night on our way to NH in early July and liked it so much we spent 2 nights here in late August on our way back from Boston. The hotel is pretty quaint and has a very nice outdoor pool, which was one of the reasons we originally chose the Avon Old Farms. Pool area is clean and there are abundant chairs/lounges and no social distancing issues. We didn't ever try the hotel restaurant because there are a number of nice restaurants within a 5-10 minute car ride. (Plus the restaurant was not open for breakfast during the weekdays.) The rooms were modern, clean and comfortable.. Its not a 5-star property, so don't expect that and you'll enjoy your stay.

i booked a room yesterday (thursday) am for last night. When arrived the front desk woman told me there was no reservation and no rooms available, although she held in her hand a reservation with my name on it. she incredulously asked “who did you speak with?” as if i would know the woman’s name who took the reservation. she then insisted that my reservation was for 2 days ago, until i showed her my cell phone proving i had called that morning. she then called her manager who suggested she offer us two small rooms that are usually offered to guests, and then had the nerve to try and charge us more than the cost of our original reservation. when we got to these two rooms they were disgusting. first neither window AC unit worked (that’s right window units), the chairs were stained and filthy, the pillow cases and sheets were ripped, the room stunk of god knows what, but the worst was candy and wrapper, chewed by a mouse or some other animal, all over the sheets. gross! after seeing the rooms we immediately checked out. it was about 10 pm and we had no where to stay. the front desk did nothing in the way of finding us a alternative accommodations nearby. no apologies. nothing. we weren’t the only guests with issues. as we were standing at the desk waiting for the woman to figure out how to resolve their mistake, two other guests told the desk that the fuse had blown in their rooms, they had no AC, and hoping the hotel could provide them a fan. the exterior grounds are clean but as you walk to the rooms the place is worn and not well maintained. old window AC units. horrible customer service. most disgusting hotel room ever been in. do yourself a favor and avoid this place, it’s an outdated dump with rude staff suggesting you made reservations for a date that already passed.

Hello John, I can see your experience with us was not favorable. I appreciate you speaking with me on the phone so I could understand just how this happened. When tropical storm Isaias came through our area our hotel lost power as so many of our neighbors did. We were fortunate that power was restored in less than 2 days as many people remained without power for several days beyond. With our systems down we were working to catch up on two days worth of night audits and paperwork so that our operating system would finally be caught up to the current day. Simultaneously we were fielding calls from hundreds of local residents desperately seeking somewhere to stay while their power remained out. As you noted you were one of the many that call us first thing in the morning to make a reservation. An error was made where our system was still showing the 4th when your intended date for the reservation was the 6th. Although the question came off incredulous, that was not our intent. The front desk agent was only hoping to call the person who made the reservation, looking for some clarification. As your arrival was late into the evening we had been in contact with all the local hotels through out the day and we knew their occupancy was full. Certainly it would have been beneficial to relay this information to you. It put us in a tough situation as we knew there were no other rooms in the local area. As you stated we did offer you two of our economy rooms, which are typically not rented. At the time of this offer we did not know the error that had been made earlier in the day and we made the reservation at a discounted rate but more than your original booking. That being said, as I did many times on the phone with you, I apologize on the issues you experienced in these rooms and with the error that was made in booking your reservation. Although the power was restored to the hotel much of the area remained without power and the power lines seemed to experience surges as we did have fuses blowing and intermittent internet for several days. Unfortunately these issues were beyond our control.

Looks great and wonderful but don't be fooled. The front entry is very nice. If you are placed in the annex be prepared for your worst hotel experience of your life! Room literally stinks of mold, our toilet was not functioning properly, ac unit is 40-50 years old, old beds with thick mattress toppers, minimal pillows...the list goes on and on! Staff was not helpful besides from the person who tried to help with our toilet issues...said we just had to “jiggle the handle”! How does a hotel without a properly functioning toilet receive a 4.4 rating? The front desk agent told us “nothing” was open despite a sprawling (open) strip on rt.10 and the charming Avon Village. I cant get the smell of this place out of my nose...you've been warned!

Hi Stephen, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. It looks like you stayed with us when the power was out from the recent storm. Our hotel had power restored much sooner than many of the other businesses around us, so I apologize that when the day began there was almost no other restaurants or shops with power- I'm glad you ventured out and discovered that power had come back to areas around us. I can see that there were issues with your stay and for that I apologize. We value all guests comments both positive and negative and I will certainly address the issues with your room with ownership.
