Avon Inn
Ranked #4 of 5 Avon B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 April 2014

The food is good. Not that much better than any other decent establishment. I have been there for both Sunday brunch and holiday meals. The building is old and very beautiful, however it appears to be lacking in the "up keep" dept. The wallpaper is pulling away from the wall in spots. Come on.... we cant even take a couple minutes to glue it back into place? Attention to detail people! This is what keeps customers coming back. The décor could definitely use an update. Maybe an intervention from "Restaurant Impossible?" Aside from all this, in which the proprietors should already know, I will continue to go back there to eat now and then.

The Avon Inn is a large old building on the main street of Avon. It dates back to the early to mid 1800's. It has a bar, restaurant, and rooms. The review just covers our stay not any food.

The building is old and has a lot of historic charm but needs some money sunk into it for renovations. The division of the building into rooms was uneven in quality and attention to historical detail. Some of it didn't work as well as it cloud have been. Yes, that is a kind of nitpicking restoration comment. Our room was large and comfortable and the furnishings match the character of the building in a modest way. The room was clean, everything worked but it's worn around the edges. It was the kind of place I wanted to love but only could like. The price was very good and staff were very friendly.

If you stay it's more an inn and not a B&B but the value is good. Try it sometime with modest expectations. It's good enough that we would stay again.

I have to be honest, I was a little nervous to stay here but I actually loved it! The people are friendly, room was very clean and they even had breakfast inclusive. The rooms are old but decorated in the charm of the building. The bed was huge and comfortable. The shower had amazing pressure but hard to turn the knobs. The floor is slanted, lol, because the building is antique, lol. The wifi free worked great. I gave it a 4 because I love the older charm but some people may not. May rate it a 2 or 3 because things may need an update . If you want some charm , very clean, very friendly, then this is a great place to stay. I was a single woman and felt safe. I would definitely stay here again!!

The Avon Inn is conveniently located right in the center of the town of Avon, NY. The building was constructed in 1820 and the original architectural fabric that is still visible is a nice touch. The main stair has thankfully been left in its original configuration and has not been brutalized by modern codes. Unfortunately, a renovation appears to have been done in about 1970 and it is pretty shoddy. The lay-in ceilings, individual room heat pumps, lighting, artwork and plumbing are all of low quality and near the end of their useful lives. Taking a shower in room 123 was far too exciting with water temperatures varying at random from North Pole to broiling. On the positive side, the restaurant food was excellent, service was extremely friendly and the prices for everything were very reasonable. In spite of the aged infrasturcture, the Inn is impeccably clean and it appears that the walls have been recently painted. Parking is adequate. Should I be in Avon again, this would be my first choice.

Room Tip: Stay out of 123 unless you enjoy dancing in the shower.

RESTUARANT - great (A). Good salad bar, nice menu, pork loin and roast beef entrees were great. Beer selection limited - should add regional beers such as Ithaca Brewing or Lake Placid Brewing.

HOTEL - NOT worth price (F). Manager - check your rooms!
Room - Very dusty 1980 decor, stained carpet, and broken furniture, no chairs to watch TV, no desk. Bath - mildew in tub, VERY grungy sink faucet, shower temp fluctuated to point of scalding. Amenities. No paper or pen, no desk, no WiFi, no tv guide, no area information guide,

Room Tip: If you must stay, inspect room before checking in!
