This place is a dump! The pool is closed, there’s debris everywhere, i was given wrong WiFi code upon check in, the bedside drawer won’t close it keeps opening, it looks nothing like the photos. I would not recommend. Definitely not worth the price.

Despite the epidemic situation we are going through right now, our overall experience at this hotel was excellent. It would have been better if the pool and spa where opened, but we understood under the circumstances they where just looking out for our overall health. The room was spacious and clean. The entire facility was nicely kept up and the staff all around where very kind and helpful. We will definitely come back to the same room for future visits.

Great tucked away location. Landscaping foliage is nice.

Loved the wildlife around the property and the views

views, shuttles were good. Room was large. restaurant was closed. No towels racks in bathroom.

The hotel was lovely, in a nice setting. The staff, especially the shuttle drivers, were friendly and helpful. The pool and hot tub were great! I loved that the room had a balcony. The restaurant was very good too.

Great shuttle service staff! They were very friendly, informative and accommodating.

Nice and quiet, out of town enough but and great walk into town. Wifi was shaky, pool n jacuzzi were wonderful. The landscaping of the grounds were fantastic. Nice on site restaurant for dinner.

All of the staff at the front desk, especially Adan, were very nice and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay here!

Cute and tucked away from the busy streets. Very comfortable beds. Good onsite restaurant.

Sadly, this hotel resort does not keep up with maintenance. Our room at $250/night was worn down, room 415. Perhaps worth $150/night because the bed and pillows were comfortable.

Great remodeled modern rooms, super nice staff, shuttle service was a huge plus!

Walls were paper thin and you could hear occupants TV's and voices throughout the night. Hotel staff was good, but infrastructure of hotel needs improvement.

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary in Avalon and truly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful Resort hotel. The room was absolutely beautiful, very comfortable and reasonably priced! We will recommend it to all of our friends and family in the future. The Harrison's

If you're not a walker / hiker, do not book a room here unless you've rented a cart. THE FACILITIES were great and the people working there are amazing. We checked out an hour late at 12 pm on a non busy Saturday morning. They let us check in as early as 12 pm on friday! Crazy, right? Normal check in is 4pm, but I'm thinking we were the first arrivals that day because it was dead quiet around. I'm sure that doesn't happen often. We arrived at avalon off the ferry at 10 am, and at the end of the walk way from the ferry there's a little parking lot where hotel vans gather. We waited 0 minutes, haha. The holiday inn green-van driver works for tips and saves you the HIKE (yes). He can fit about 6. Best thing is the balcony because you can hang out with friends. The rooms are a bit small if you book for 4 people , like we did. The pool is great! They also have ping pong and little lobby store with drinks and cereal and snacks, which saves you the walk. The walk up to the hotel is killer. I was sore, after my one day stay because we ended up having to walk up half a dozen times. The van that drives around takes FOREVER. One round trip takes him 20 min at least. And there's only one van for the hotel. NOT cool. This meant that we ended up spending more time at the hotel, only because we didn't want to walk down and up! Overall, LOVED this place. Compared to other stays on avalon, this place is a lot nicer than the older hotels lining the shore. Amenities are save this place.

I was able to check in early once I arrived on the island and that was a plus.
