Visited the Jersey Shore for the first time in my life. My husband grew up going to the great beaches in NC and SC and even VA. Even he was blown away with the absolutely beautiful beach in Avalon. The hotel staff was gracious and helpful from the moment you pull up to the front door. Valet parking is available if you like. The "joint was jumpin'" when we arrived at 11pm from Central PA. Even though there are live bands (really good ones) and a pianist downstairs, I could not hear them from my room. At all.) The rooms were really nice, very clean. We stayed in the motel room style room. We didn't need anything else, and we brought food for B-fast and lunch with us. A nice sized small fridge is in each room (which is thoroughly cleaned before you get to use it...very nice) I was thoroughly impressed to actually hear a vacuum cleaner running when I dropped by the room around lunchtime one day. People, they iron and starch the sheets and pillowcases. 'nuff said. I watched the lifeguard broom and then vacuum out the pool every morning. Very comfy deck chairs for lounging by the pool. Gorgeous views from our 3rd floor room. The restaurant is wonderful, with reasonable prices. We ate like kings but didn't ache in the wallet the next day. The people there must have been coming to this little piece of heaven for most of their lives. We felt like we stumbled upon a well kept secret that has been guarded for quite a long time. We spent half our vacation talking about how and when we were coming back. There is even a changing room/shower available to you when you check out so that you can visit the pool or beach for the day then get cleaned up before you begin your trip home. You get pool tags and beach tags (bring your cash, you need $20/person to "rent" your beach tags!). So, bring your sunscreen and have a fantastic time!
