“Loved the Beachcomber Resort!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

I called the Resort on a whim on the 4th of July, it was 4pm, I needed something for myself and my 13, 8 and 6 yr old sons for the weekend. I was shocked that they happened to have a room available for the weekend and we jumped on it. I had no idea what to expect, other than what I read here, but I was just pleased that that we found a place.
I was so pleasantly surprised when we arrived around 7pm to find the most adorable room! It was decorated so perfectly and had a full size fridge, a stove, toaster and most importantly a coffee maker with packets of coffee! There was a pull out couch and a Murphy bed, a flat screen tv and a large bathroom. The pool was open until 11pm and was heated and lit colorfully lit. The younger kids were so excited because they were setting up a movie screen by the pool and showing the Lego movie that night! We were located right across the street from the park where the fireworks were and within walking distance to Mack's pizza! The staff was incredible! So accommodating and kind! I will go back here all the time now!

As always we had a great time in spite of 3 non-beach (weather) days out of seven. New pool area improvements put the Beachcomber over the the top. Everyone is so positive and determined to make your stay very comfortable and pleasant. Kudos to GM Stephanie Turner who is wonderful at her job!!

Room Tip: An elevator would be nice, especially for the 3rd floor and you are in your seventies. 1st & 2n...

We had the best time at Beachcombers Resort. Like home away from home.
So we went with 13 people in our family. Stayed in three rooms and basically owned the place. We were very comfortable there.
The staff is soo friendly and helpful.... Best you could ask for! Anything you need they will do everything in their power to make it happen. Thank you to the crew (would like to thank all personally but that would take too long.... you know we love ya!) at Beachcombers you made us feel like family.
They have done so many improvements on the place, that if you've been there before you HAVE to go see how great it is now.
The kids loved the pool the best and the adults loved the 11 person HOTTUB..... ohh man it feels so awesome!!! The kids enjoyed that too but we have to say it was our favorite first, sorry kids ;)
For those that are looking to keep their costs down. We brought food with us and with the two grills that they have on the deck by the pool we cooked lunch and dinner everyday.
Come nighttime they play movies poolside every other night. We saw The Lego movie, Frozen, Finding Nemo and Toy Story 3.
Their is a baby pool( lights in it change colors, cool at night) regular pool and hottub, they are open till 11pm for late night swims.
The layout is wonderful because instead of having the pools out front like the other places nearby, they have theirs tucked in a courtyard oasis. With trees, flowers, tables and chairs and chaise lounges.So you have privacy and comfort.
The rooms were clean, nicely decorated and plenty of sleeping options. Cookware, microwaves, refrigerator, flatscreen TV's with Direct tv and dvd player. All the basics :)
Obviosly I have plenty of great thing to say about staying here BUT the best thing I can say is........
WE WILL BE BACK! In fact we already made our reservations for next year.
Thanks Steph and Kelly and the crew for everything.
See you in July 2015.....if not sooner ;)

Had a nice stay here - things were a bit dated/dingy in places, but as long as you understand you're at a beach motel, I think you'd enjoy it here. Our spacious two-room (suite?) was RIGHT on the corner. Each room is different and I think we got a good one. The living room had big windows, a kitchenette, large flat-screen TV, leather couch. The bedroom had a dresser, another flat-screen TV and a bit of a hard/lumpy bed, but again, remember where you are. Being Avalon in the summer, the room didn't come cheap, but the location was great (and being one block back from the two beach-front hotels with bars/restaurants, surprisingly quiet. Also, the bedroom was in the back so that helped, too.) The kids in the room next door were calling through the door when we arrived (this seems to be a theme with me lately!) but I told them there was a dragon in my room and they left ;)

I can't speak to the rooms, but if you want a scene, stay at the Windrift (I will probably check it out another time as I loved the bar.) But The Beachcomber does the trick for an easy beach weekend.

Absolutely Great. Fantastic pool, great location, great staff, great room. I've stayed at other hotels neary by, and the Beachcomber beats them hands down. Close walk to the beach dining and night life. The Beachcomber staff was very knowledgeable and helpful about shore activities. If you're giining to Avalon this is the place to stay.

My husband and I were planning a night in Avalon and wanted somewhere to crash for the night that wasn't too expensive. After a little bit of research, and some help from tripadvisor, we decided on the Beachcomber. The room we stayed in was quaint, just about large enough for us 2. It could potentially accommodate another couple, but was perfect for just the 2 of us. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, the unit came with parking, and there is a pool, though we didn't get a chance to splash around in it. If you're unfamiliar with Avalon, be advised that this location is far from places the Whitebrier and Princeton, but is close to the Whitebrier and the beach. All in all, I would definitely stay here again.
