I booked a night at the hotel as a part of my birthday getaway and I was very pleased. My room had its own private entrance from the street and the room was spacious and clean. It also had a king sized, four poster bed, an electric faux fireplace (cozy) and a large Jacuzzi tub and shower combo for two....

Very nicer rooms, some bigger than others and some look newly remodeled. I toured the place and love it. Costs lest than most places in town and the manager is very nice and accommodating to my needs. Checked what boat I was on to be sure my key was ready for me to check right in.

We were severely limited in island lodging selection due to traveling with dogs, as we always do, but rarely so limited. Note you can not use the airport shuttle with a dog, and the (only) taxi fare is $110 for the 20 minute one way ride. I was not warned that the hotel office closes at 4 pm. We arrived...

If the air condition worked well, then once in the room , it might have been well. The corridors going up to the room which was equivalent to a three story walk were so narrow I had to drag my bags behind me. The air condition unit which was this monster of a machine in one corner of the room...

We read many reviews about the various hotel sin Avalon. We wanted a hotel near the waterfront, and a room that did not require me to walk up many stairs and a room with a tub/Jacuzzi and not have to spend a fortune. This hotel met all the criteria! Our room had a private entrance on the ground floor and...

I've stay at the Seacrest several times over the years and I've always enjoyed my visit. Each room is furnished a bit different, and understandably some are better than others. However all of the rooms are clean, fairly quiet, and super close to all the shops, restaurants and beaches. I'm not sure I would recommend it for a family, but...

The room was cramped and not very clean. There were holes in the bed spread and blanket and the bed was uncomfortable.. For ice you had to go to the top floor patio (no elevator), and it was in limited supply. The market ins't far though and there is a frig.

We staid in the Captains Room, it's very cozy and beautiful, has a jacuzzi. The only down side is all the noise from the outside but as regards to the stay and the room it was just very pleasant. Room was clean, bed very comfortable, and person in charge was very nice and welcoming.
