This hotel is amazing. The beds are extremely comfortable, the views are gorgeous, the staff is like family, and it's just steps from the shops and the ocean. If you're looking for somewhere to relax you need to stay here. Also, the bathtub with the bubbles & body scrub is to die for. Don't forget wine & cheese on Friday's!...

Our 50 Anniversary trip. Easy and complete service in booking trip and related activities. Great view from room of the harbor. Quiet, professional, thoughtful are the words the come to mind as experienced travelers. A small customer focused property that fits the island but adds greatly to the experience of .getting away to Avalon.

Two marvelous nights in Avalon. Room 306 had a perfect view of the harbor and was well equiped and more than comfortable. The entire staff was helpful and gave us an array of good choices for restaurants and entertainment possibilities. The hike up to the third floor was a chore but the cozy bed with a view made it all...

We got a snique away deal deal and went to this hotel sight unseen and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was more like a bed and breakfast. The room was spacious and clean and charming.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time this weekend, and most of the credit goes to this hotel! When we landed, we walked the ten minutes from the landing to the hotel, and were able to check into our room right away. Complimentary coffee, tea and snacks were available in the lobby, and complimentary waters and Snapples in the...

This is your home away from home. The beds are so comfortable plus the bath amenities are fantastic. The hotel accomidated our small group of friends as well. The balconies are so wonderful only to be topped by the staff's friendliness and cleanliness. You have not taken a bath until you have bathed in the fabulous bathtubs and sea salts....

What a lovely place to stay! The hotel is close to the main part of Avalon, but away from bustle. It was quiet, comfortable, and the amenities were great. The staff is very friendly and helpful without getting in your way. When you have a concern, they respond quickly. For example, the first evening my husband and I wanted to...

We found this hotel an Snique Away and booked a balcony room for a night. We arrived at a lovely, quaint hotel, a half block off the beaten track, and checked in with an enthusiastic and helpful desk clerk, who took us to our room. The room was reasonably sized and the amenities were very nice. The room was clean,...

The staff were very helpful and gracious. The location was nice and slightly offset from the main street which we liked.. The views were great and the little eating area was quaint. We would come back here for future trips.
