“After wedding”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We stayed here after a wedding. And although the hotel was beautiful and service was great be ware of a 25$ hold per person per room that will be put on your card upon arrival. I don't think if you are not exceeding the room maximum there should be any reason for this.

We recently stayed at the Avon Old Farms for a family event. It is in need of some updating. We had a King luxury suite. Our bed was not comfortable. The linens are sub par. There isn't a fitted sheet on the bottom. It's an old mattress with a feather topper on top covered by a flat sheet that constantly comes off. The duvet is a plain duvet sandwiched by two flat sheets. We had to ask for replacement sheets when we noticed out sheet had advisable stain. The one they replaced it with also had a stain. The bed skirt was also dirty. Also, the room had no room darkening curtains, so the room was flooded with light very early (some people may love that)! The bathtub in our room had permanent stains on it. Be sure to ask for a pet free room. The hotel is pet friendly, and if you have any pet allergies this can be problematic. Also problematic was the dog a few doors down who was constantly scratching on the door. Ugh. I do want to say that the staff was wonderful for the most part. They were friendly and helpful. Avon Old Farms is very pretty, and if you're not as picky about the little things as we are you'll love it there.

Room Tip: I suggest staying on "the new side" as the older side smells a bit musty.

This hotel has pretty grounds set in a nice part of the general Hartford area. My family stayed here in part because there was a great deal to be had, and in part because many of the better deals in Hartford require staying either near the airport or in less scenic parts of the area.

This is a very nicely located hotel if one is going to events in the Avon/Farmington area. It's less convenient if you just need a place to stay off the interstate for the evening, or need to make repeated trips into downtown Hartford or its environs (Trinity College, etc) during the day.

The decor could use a touch up in places, but otherwise the rooms were spacious. There are some treats for breakfast (not widely advertised, at least to us).

Our only real complaint was that the internet connection was painstakingly, drop me from websites slow. Easily the slowest of any hotel in over a week of travels.

Very nice hotel for the area. I was married in the hotel 25 years ago and went for a weekend visit with my wife. We enjoyed the hotel just as much the second time. Make sure you don't stay in t he old rooms.

I have stayed at this hotel three times over the past year due to location. On previous visits, my rooms were satisfactory although a little tired and in need of upgrades. On my last visit, we were relegated to a motel-style room that was street side. Upon walking into the room, we immediately said this was unacceptable. The room was very musty smelling like an old basement and seemed damp and stuffy. We immediately got switched to a different room, of course for a $50.00 upcharge. The pool is nice although a little cold. The evening bartenders also seemed to be professional and friendly. The workout area is very small and basic with a well used treadmill, elliptical, recumbent bike and some weights....be sure to bring your own sweat towel. As far as the breakfast, despite the inviting menu and nice service, the food really is average at best. Entrees lacked flavor, seemed a bit dry, and just very basic. It really could be much better with a little effort. Overall, the hotel presents a nice setting but seems in need of serious updating.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a room in the main building or you will be very disappointed.
