We went to Avalon in January 2012 for a wedding. I found this hotel online, and choose it because it had gotten good reviews and the price was right. We stayed one night in the hotel. It's a restored Victorian, and has retained much of the charm. In our building there were three floors (no elevator, I don't think...not a problem for us, but maybe for some.) The room included a fridge, flat screen TV, wall heater that worked well, and an ocean view. Each floor had an outdoor balcony to sit and relax, as well as a general living room type area downstairs near the front desk. Coffee and (fresh, from a local bakery) donuts included. The staff could not have been friendlier. Check out time was 10 AM, but they let us keep our luggage in a locked locker downstairs for an additional 6 hours since our ferry didn't leave until late in the day. Easy walking distance to the casino (where we attended a wedding) and all shops and restaurants. Good quality room for a good price...we'd go back in a heartbeat. Thank you!
