Old is sometimes quaint; other times, it's just old. This very, very old property has some architectural charm, and it is located a quiet block away from loud, crowded Crescent Dr. The rooms and property were reasonably clean, and the staff was nice enough. But the rooms (we had a private "bungalow") were very cheaply decorated and renovated. For $50 a night, it could have been written off as an adventure, but at $150 ($168, w. tax), you can't escape the feeling you've been "taken." (Of course, this description applies to most of Avalon.) I was embarassed to admit to my spouse that I chose such accommodations. You can do worse, but you can easily do better, at these prices. (Beware the early 10:00 am checkout, too.)
