The service was absolutely excellent! The staff was extremely helpful: 1. Transporting my luggage, upon my arrival, and departure.. 2. Serving me lunch at the Sandbar Village. 3. Serving me dinner at the Avalon Brew Pub. and 4. Providing me with an umbrella, and a lounge chair on the beach. My room was immaculate, very comfortable, well proportioned, and the cleaning service was excellent. Also, I really enjoyed the partial view of the ocean from my porch. I appreciated the convenient location to the beach; because I try to spend as much time on the beach, walking, reviewing work, and of course, swimming.

Gorgeous hotel with beautiful interior. Most rooms come with in-built kitchen which is perfect for families with infants/toddlers. Pros: 2 min walk to the beach, hotel provides towel, umbrellas, beach chairs for free. There’s pool and hot-tub, neither deeper than 5ft, open from 9am-9pm. Bar right next to the pool. Parking is free. Avalon sports facilities like basketball, tennis courts are 1 block away. Cape May is 20 mins drive away The hotel has two restaurants to serve lunch and dinner. Avalon Brewery Pub is the better option. Cons: Tiny elevator

WE arrived on Labor Day, earlier than scheduled and were able to check in early. From that moment on, our stay could not be more pleasant. The hotel was very clean, the staff was always helpful, the room was very clean and contained all the amenities needed. Everyone, including the guests, wore masks during our stay since this is the Covid 19 year. My spouse and I have been coming here to vacation since the hotel was the Golden Inn and since the change over, have seen nothing but improvements to the entire area. We plan to come for many more years as this is our 41st anniversary.

This resort must not need the business. I tried calling to make a reservation. Nobody answered. Recording asked me to leave my contact information and someone would call me back. Never received a phone call. I made a reservation at another resort who was very appreciative for my business.

The Icona Avalon is one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in. It was also our first getaway since the beginning of the pandemic and any concerns we may have had were immediately put to rest when we walked through the front door. The reception staff were all pleasant and the check in process quick and easy. The best part is the room, it looks exactly like the online photos. No misrepresentation or creative photography. If you book online like I do, the room descriptions are spot on and honest. You know if you are getting a room with a view of the beach or overlooking the parking lot, and I love that! We had a beautiful room with an ocean view which was just what we needed for a quick 2 day getaway to recharge. Will definitely do this more often!
