Received a fair price on Priceline and stayed for 1 night on the way to Boston. Staff interactions were very professional. Bed was comfortable, room was well equipped and quiet, and wifi was satisfactory. The bathroom was functional but showed signs of age. I would have no problem recommending for a short stay!

When booking I did not realize that part of this hotel is actually a motel, with exterior entrance doors, facing a busy, noisy highway. From the website I assumed the rooms were all in the main building and that the location was in a quieter, more rural area. The website mentions four poster beds but I didn't get one in...

Avon Old Farms is nestled in the Farmington River Valley of Connecticut and is a fine restaurant, with an old world charm. Yankee fare is supplemented with more modern cuisine in a tasty and imaginative way. The live music on weekends is always very good, and the staff couldn't be more gracious. I recommend the desserts, which are all equally...

My daughter was married nearby and both families stayed here for the weekend and attended the reception across the street at another amazing venue for discussion in another review. No driving, no worries. Reasonably priced and totally accommodating. I can't begin to say enough nice things about every aspect of their 5 star operation. Bruce St. Louis MO
