The hotel is very nice. The rooms are roomy and the beds are comfortable. Had somewhat of a hard time cooling the room down. But to be honest the temps outside were in the upper 90s. Only ate one meal there, lunch. Food was good, but it took a long time for it to come. Other guests around us also... More

The newly renovated Golden Inn is amazing!. The changes in the rooms, lobby, dining area and pool are impressive. We had stayed there before and now it is so much better. Well worth the price! The light airy look makes the place seem so much bigger. We loved the new pool with the whirlpool next to it. The staff did... More

We have been coming to The Golden Inn for Reggae Sunday for many years. I didn't think it could get any better but it sure has! It is beautiful and the management and staff are beyond accommodating. Icona has done a spectacular job recreating the space to comfortably seat large groups as well as seating for a couple. Lots of... More

I really wanted to spend the weekend here and write a great review but its really not possible. Having been raised in the Philly area, I spent lots of time at the Jersey Shore. However, in the last 25 years I have not spent much time there. I have found that the prices for hotels, food, etc are crazy expensive... More

Second time to Golden Inn. First time since remodel. Great transformation but still going through pains of remodeling. East wing still not open during our visit. Was moved to west wing and not what we had hoped for though room was absolutely lovely. No compensation from hotel, Service in restaurant and pool area very good. Front desk associates need a...

The newly renovated hotel is beautiful inside and out. There is pLenty of staff available to cater to your needs. Everyone is friendly. They are still under construction and I'm sure you'll pay more in a few months when it's completed. Gorgeous decorations inside and plenty of seats outside at the pool and restaurant/bar.

Now that Icona/Mita purchased the Golden Inn we were expecting more especially when the room rate went up 50%. Ok, they through some pain up, add a bar and installed a slippery vinyl line pool and hot tub. Are you kidding!! Had lunch at SandBar and it was BAD. A lobster roll w/ 3 pieces of lobster on a stale... More

We loved our stay here! We were in a newly renovated room and it was wonderful. The rooms were clean and very modern. Walking distance to the beach and my kids had a blast! The breakfast buffet was delicious! We will stay here again when we come to Avalon!

As a local, this my go to place when we are looking to go have a drink off the beach. They often have live entertainment and are right on the beach. It draws a big crowd sometimes during happy hour. Definitely a spot to check out. Just drove past and saw they are again open after re-modeling. Can't wait to... More
