Stayed here for a bowling tournament $79 rate for a complete disaster room. Plaster in the bathroom must had mold and they pealed it off and wallpaper screwed back on after falling off. Cant imagine what was behind that wallpaper. Ceiling above bed missing pieces. Dead ants in the bed. Checked out the next day. Spoke to the manager and... More

I stayed here Thursday April 14th-Friday the 15th. I booked the room late because my husband had an unexpected stay at a local hospital. I arrived between 12-1 am...the parking garage did not have a sign stating the ticket dispenser was broken, I finally continued in and parked. After bringing my belongings in, I was told I had to put... More

Hotel and staff are horrible! They don't care about anything from a room 85° and the a/c can't be used. They bring us a fan and we have to open windows with the noises from the street we got no sleep. To one couple having to change room because of the mold and ceiling falling down. Top it off when...

Was in a renovated room. It was just OK for a night after our winery visits since we really were not in the hotel other than heading to sleep. Hotel itself was on the dingy side. Pretty much you get what you pay for...

Celebrated new years eve here and I just wanted to point out the fact that the banquet staff is the most professional and effective hotel staff I have seen in a while. They were extremely polite and were more than eager to help, despite it being well after 2 pm. Would definitely recommend to friends 👍

I've been staying at The Avalon over the years and all I have to say is, it is what it is. This is an older property offering two room types, renovated and non renovated. I the renovated rooms are still dated, but generally clean. One thing I've noticed over multiple stays here is the heat and a/c are hit and... More

I do not recommend this place at all. The hotel looks like it hasn't been maintained in years. The corridors are dingy. The lobby looks tacky. My room was OK, but the AC didn't work, nor did the wifi. I was on a budget trip and was not expecting much from a hotel, but this one was just too bad.... More
