If your planning on dropping off your son at Avon Farm School (4 miles away) this location is perfect. The staff is friendly, helpful and courteous - the rooms are big with FREE WIFI. The hotel has an outdoor pool and a restaurant to catch a quick meal.

Avon Old Farms was the closest place to my sister's apartment that was available on 4th of July weekend. We stayed in the newer section. The room was small, so the beds are smaller, but they are comfortable. When we arrived we requested a mini fridge that was brought within 15 minutes. Apparently the place is popular for weddings and...

We recently stayed at Avon Old Farms Hotel when having to travel to Connecticut for a funeral. We made the reservation last minute and felt that we got a decent rate for what it was. We had just a regular room, two queen beds, and it worked out fine for two adults and one child. What worked best for us...

Nice hotel, helpful staff, clean rooms. The only issue is that the hotel is very spread out, and the lobby was far from our room. Breakfast was very limited, and they could have done a better job of putting out more food.

We needed something not too far off our main route but wanted to avoid the typical interstate places and lucked upon Avon. Nice grounds, nice clean rooms with nice decor. While the rooms are standard, the decor makes them seem nicer and the grounds were nice.

On the positive side---this hotel has a lovely lobby, friendly staff, and a good complimentary continental breakfast. The beds are clean and comfortable. Also free WiFi. On the negative side---room is run-down, instead of a couch or love-seat, there are two straight back chairs facing a coffee table. The small refrigerator is on the floor, where you cannot use it...

The room we had was tired. It looks great in the photos and is attractive at face value. The bed had a soft topper which I'm guessing was to make the old, soft mattress better but had the opposite effect as it bunched during the night. The bathroom is very tired and would be unsafe for the elderly as the...
