This hotel is tired and shows it. The heater in the room is so noisy that we finally shut it off so we could sleep which meant that the room got very cold. The room had not been well cleaned. The luggage rack was missing and there were foil candy wrappers on the bedside table and an earplug on the...

This property is an older motel. The lobby is very nice and the staff was helpful at check in. I asked to be placed in the main building and they accommodated me. The room was well decorated but their were two drawbacks. The bed was too soft and uncomfortable and the heating unit would only keep the room warm if...

This property is conveniently located near the intersection of two major streets. and close to shopping and restaurants (although don't plan on walking anywhere, due to traffic and lack of sidewalks). The front section is older motel-style, with rooms entered directly from the outside. The back section, called the luxury section, is made up of standard corridors with rooms opening...

We stayed at the hotel for a wedding and the staff was always so helpful. We were traveling with a family member in a wheelchair and they were so accommodating. The front desk and restaurant staff were really amazing. We stayed for the Sunday brunch which was incredible! The hotel is not incredibly wheelchair friendly but the staff members certainly...

We stayed here recently for a nearby wedding. The hotel is beautifully decorated for Christmas. The foyer and all the furnishings are updated nicely. The towels and linens were very good quality. I did find the bed a bit uncomfortable and the headboard wasn't attached properly so it shook with every move. Overall, it is clean and staff was pleasant...

Beautiful setting in Avon, CT. The hotel is comfortable, quiet and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The room is decorated in classic furniture and our king size bed was very comfortable. I would go back in a heartbeat!

This hotel is a nice example of an older motel property well taken care of, expanded and kept in the spotlight. I had a room on street level, inside away from the two busy roadways so noise was not an issue. A peer stayed in a room on other side of the building and complained of hearing the traffic all...

I had a very pleasant stay at Avon Old Farms Hotel. The staff was extremely friendly (especially in the Tap Room at Seasons Restaurant), the food was very good, and my room was generally comfortable. My only suggestions for improvement would be to spruce up the showers a bit and invest in new mattresses. The tub/shower in my room looked...
