I was pleasantly surprised by my stay at the Avon Old Farms Hotel. I was put up here the night before running a workshop at the University; after reading some of the recent reviews on Trip Advisor I dreaded the experience. After my stay, I wonder what is wrong with reviewers' expectations. Or maybe going midweek when no large event is planned makes for a better hotel stay. This is a typical New England hotel/motel with an Inn flavor. It has charm, comfort, and history. Although the Hotel is adjacent to highways and roads with heavy traffic. the grounds are quite lovely and almost bucolic. I can see why it is a popular setting for weddings and receptions. Contrary to others, I found the staff courteous, friendly, and helpful. The room (#137) was large, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. The king size bed was canopied, with ample supply of fluffy pillows and great covers. It was a very cold evening, and the room was perfectly heated. Dinner at the restaurant was superb, better than the quality of many a New York dining experience. It is true that the walls of the hotel are rather thin, and I could hear doors slamming and people talking. Nonetheless, I had a good night's sleep, and I am spoiled by my bed at home. I'm now thinking of returning with my wife for a mid-week escape.
