Alyssa and Erin are who we worked with at Icona and they are so lovely and amazing. They helped us get all the details and everything inline for our big day. After you book with Icona they give you a big checklist which really helps guide you in the process. Our wedding was such a fantastic party, the food was amazing, you get to choose your beers and the liquor is great brands they have standard. The venue is absolutely amazing, views from the ceremony area on the beach, the reception hall and everything else. A big thing that needs to be noted is that Icona let us bring in a ton of our own decorations, and let us hang them all up in the reception area to let us add extra individualized touch, it meant a lot and was really amazing. The rooms were all so nice also all of our guests were complementing. We do want to add that the staff took many extra steps to make sure that we got fed, and were well taken care of during our big day. Kathy was our server who made sure we were able to get food at cocktail hour, always could get a drink for us and sat us down for dinner. It really was a nice special touch that made our day even more special.

Hotel's Favorite
As a retired Hotel GM for a major chain, I consider myself a tough critic. My expectations were admittedly low due to our family group stay coming at the end of the season, a late Thursday night in September. Not the case. I was very pleasantly surprised as to the condition and maintenance at the conclusion of the "busy" season. Nice job to the maintenance crew! I know that shore Guests can be tough on a facility. The staff encountered were friendly throughout our stay. The public areas were clean. The room, done mostly in white, was clean and free from wear & tear. Fridge, coffee maker, hot water, etc. all worked as they should. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom, while small, was clean (I found one long brown hair). We stayed on a Thursday night and I heard no complaints or concerns from any of the others in our group. Breakfast on Friday morning (we had two adjacent tables of 11 pp total) was a bit slow as most servers had gone for the season. The 2 servers were doing a tremendous job and we gave them some slack and enjoyed good conversation. Other banquet crew and kitchen staff were assisting. Nice Team work observed. I was previously unfamiliar with the ICONA product and hear that they have two others. I would not hesitate to give them a try. Only pleasant surprises experienced.

Be aware that this upscale hotel caters to wedding parties. If you book a hotel room with a balcony because you like to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean you will also have to hear the very loud guests partying through the night. Had we been warned about this we would not have chosen this hotel.

We had the premium queen suite which comes with a balcony and a side view of the ocean. You can hear the waves while falling asleep. This hotel is unique among shore hotels in that it is upscale. Robes are provided which I loved wearing to the pool. Icona Avalon keeps the heated pool and hot tub open during the month of October which is partly why we go back this time of the year whenever we can. Every staff person we encountered was friendly and helpful. The room is as good as it looks on the Icona website. The food at Brewery Pub is very good. We had a nice three day mini vacation, the first in a long while because of Covid.

Room Tip: We like the East Wing because it is closer to the beach views and to the pool.
