Glenmore Plaza Hotel
Ranked #15 of 20 Hotels in Avalon
Reviewed 18 June 2014

The Glenmore is a good value. The Marilyn Monroe suite was fun, black chandelier,nicely updated with jacuzzi tub. The staff were nice & rooms clean. The continental breakfast was ok, just enough to get you started. This room faces the street which can be noisey. Easy walking distance to all coffe shops & restaurants.

Room Tip: Choose the side away from the street if you want quite.

We arrived at the hotel on February 15th, 2014 for a relaxing romantic night and what we got was the complete opposite. First of all, the room was not ready for check-in. We were told that we would have to wait an hour because the hotel was checking out a lot of rooms (not my problem!!). Secondly, there were no towels in the room. Thirdly, the phone didn't work. Had to walk down to get towels. Lastly, the toilet didn't work. All night long I had to fix the toilet. When we complained they said that I would have to talk with the manager Jack. But, he only comes in after 4pm. He was no help. Did I mention that there was a guy going to the bathroom outside of our window.

Quaint hotel, older but WONDERFUL! What a pleasant surprise. Clean rooms with character, excellent beds. Some rooms with Jacuzzi tubs. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Friendly, small town feel. Great price too! Highly recommend!

Awesome place, friendly staff, just steps to the water. I went on my honeymoon and they upgraded our room. The room was beautiful, the bed was so comfortable. Close to everything. Wouldn't stay anywhere else!! The staff help was helpful on planning our daily adventures.

The hotel is located in an excellent location. It is right in the middle of Avalon. Close to everything. It has recently been remodeled. Everything is top notch. The rooms are so wonderful. Well appointed, nice linens, super comfortable beds, large flat screen TVs. The large walk-in shower was terrific.

Our room was on an upper floor. We had a nice view of the street and we could see the Wrigley Memorial up on the hill.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Sean made us feel at home from the moment we checked in. He was helpful with restaurant recommendations and things to do.

I stayed at this hotel over 40 years ago when I was a kid. It was great to see it was still there.

Would definitely stay again.

Stayed here Valentine's weekend. Was picked up in a free shuttle at boat dock. Front desk was accommodating & friendly. Had one of the newer rooms overlooking the street with straight shot view of the casino. Shower was large and had the overhead raintype shower head. Everything was great, only things to consider is I saw an older man struggling on the stairs to get to his room. There is no elevator in this hotel so be prepared. to carry your things up and down. Nice continental breakfast of bagels, muffins, coffee, bananas etc. Large new flat screen TV, comfy bed, bright décor. Would stay again

Room Tip: The street room was rather noisy at night after the bar a few doors down let out so if noise bothers...
