We stayed here Memorial weekend and the weather was lousy. Fortunately, the pool was very well heated so despite wearing jeans and jackets, the kids still had a blast going in the warm pool. Also, the office has movies and games for free checkout. The room is plenty for a family of four and we ate at the Concord Café adjoining the property. When the weather did clear up, it was nice to be so close to the beach. It might not be beach block, but it's not far either. Recommended for a small family or couple. Great location to beach, playground (78th and 83rd) and to town (96th).

The suites are a perfect size, and were so clean. The heated pool was also immaculate and felt great after a freezing dip in the ocean. The cafe food (and it's fully stocked bar) were convenient and great! Kids had a blast.

We have been going to Avalon for family summer vacations for 4 generations..we rent for a few weeks during the summer but the Concord is a great motel if you just need a "shore" fix. Other hotels in the area I feel focus on more of a corporate crowd and forget that it is families that keep the shore going strong year after year. The Concord is comfortable, clean and have a great staff ..looking forward to our stay again this June.

For someone who has not grown up visiting the Jersey shore the prices you will pay during their short season may seem high for the accommodations but for those of us who are accustomed to summer vacations at "the shore" we will be pleased with the Concord since it is a lovely, clean, quiet hotel. The food at the cafe is good and very convenient. Yu need to walk across Dune Drive to get to the beach but it is a very short walk.

Room Tip: Some of the competitors have more social activities but we found that to also mean they could be rat...

I stay at the Concord Suites in Avalon year after year. Super Clean Condos at an affordable Price. With Two Pools and a Restuarant on site you can't go wrong. Great for couples or Families! Friendly Staff and steps to the beach! Just drop your bags and enjoy the sunset!

This is a nice and clean hotel but it wouldn't be my first choice. It is not oceanfront. The walkways to the rooms are not very wide and it is an inconvenience to people when they are sitting out and have to stand up because you want to try to move luggage past them. The pool area is not very large. The room locks are not electronic. Reserve early because it is hard to get last minute reservations.

Room Tip: The ground floor has more room outside of the rooms.

We spent 5 days at the Concord Suites and we found the staff to be pleasant and helpful, and the suites and the entire property to be very clean.

The suites are small, but well equiped: 2 comfortable queen size beds in the bedroom, a sleeper sofa in the sitting room, and a kitchenette with 2 burners, a small refridgerator, and a table with 2 chairs, as well as a breakfast bar with 2 stools. There is ample closet and dresser space.

Each day when we returned to our room, we found it to be spotless. This is very hard to do in a beach resort, but there was no trace of sand, the bathroom was pristine and the sheets were fresh, crisp and white. The housekeeper arranged the kids stuffed animals in a cute way each day - one day they were gathered around reading a book - and the kids really got a kick out of it.

There is an ample selection of DVDs and board games available to borrow, and the front desk staff is friendly.

The location is just a block from the beach. The downtown area is a bit far to walk, but is an easy bikeride.

Another nice thing about this hotel is their environmental focus. They have a recycling program, use solar panels and have refillable filtered water that you can use to fill up your water bottles.

The only drawbacks are that the suites were smaller than we expected. they sleep 6 but that would be "cozy." The heated pool did not seem very heated, and there is no hot tub.

This is a motel, and not a luxury resort, but if you are looking for a clean, family friendly place to stay, you can't beat the Concord Suites.
