"Tired and old"
I stayed in the "motel" part of the hotel. It was older and very tired. Central air would be a big bonus; I woke up with a sore throat each morning from the air blowing directly on me. You cannot turn on the light in the bathroom without turning on the fan. The fan was so loud it gave me headaches.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value. Relaxed atmosphere"
Nice inn in small historic town outside Hartford. Near good fishing waters. Nice pool located next hotel rooms, nestled in front of trees. Room service style food available at pool from hotel restaurant, including alcoholic beverages. Hotel restaurant very nice. Room was a bit dated, but clean. Room had only plastic glasses and paper cups for very bad […] coffee. Only one ice machine working in our building. Continental breakfast included only sweet pastry and breads. Having said this it was a very good value. I would recommend and return! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful New England hotel"
I should have known by the incredible bargain that something was up. The website shows a beautiful hotel with gorgeous grounds, but our room was in the "motel annex." It felt like my grandmother's basement: kinda musty, toile wallpaper, dresser drawers that stuck, tiny bathroom, old pillow top, the whole thing. The free breakfast was not worth it. The […] clerk was overwhelmed the night we checked in, so we didn't get a proper introduction the otherwise lovely property. The pool and grounds were really beautiful and very well cared for, so we enjoyed all the time we were out of the room. There was some sort of outside function every day we were there, so this hotel is certainly respected in the area, but I got the impression the hotel and staff have seen brighter days.

"Adequate Amenities, Indifferent Service"
I booked this hotel since I had an early meeting in the Hartford area and Hartford is not the best area. I arrived later in the evening after a long day of business related activities. The front desk provided my room and sent me along my way. However, once I reached my room, instead of the king sized bed I had reserved, there were two double beds (too […] firm for my taste). I called the front desk to ask why I was not given the room I was booked and they were not helpful or friendly. They seemed disinterested in helping me and really could not have cared less that I had booked and paid for a more expensive room, but was bait and switched. One more tip: the "super luxury" room means that it has an iPod dock (which has the outdated connector). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beds are amazingly comfortable!"
The beds in our room were so comfortable that we immediately fell asleep. The room was well kept. The tv is an older tube tv which was odd since the rate seemed to imply new electronics in the room. The shower was also old and had a broken drain. Therefore the shower would fill with water while showering and I was standing in a foot of water after 5 […] minutes.

"nice old world hotel, well maintained"
pleasant environment, very nice restaurant, a bit slow service but very good foodGenuine Expedia guest review
I think everything that needs to be said has been said before. It's very nice, wifi speed is quick enough, etc...I think the only thing I can think of that it might need is a mini-fridge and microwave. I know there is room service, but no one really wants to spend that kind of money if you are just thirsty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall, this is still a pleasant, comfortable place to stay. That said, there are some cracks in the facade that need attending to. Some of the hallway areas are looking a bit worn and some of the staff interactions were not what I would have expected from what has been a fine, well-established family-run concern. On a happier note, the food is still […] fresh, fine, and well-presented and the chambermaid staff still friendly and efficient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay"
Nice, however the pictures online are a little misleading. The large spiral staircase was in the hotel, but I did not see it until I walked from my detached room in the other building, which was across from the main entrance, the entrance I used to check in. I used the staircase to make my way into the small workout room, that also looked a lot larger […] on the website. Also online, was the beautiful garden area, which we had to drive up and around to the back of the hotel to find. (unkept grass and all) I don't know how to put it into words, what was on the website was actually there, the site just presented it in kind of a misleading way. Now, with all that being said, the room was nice, the hotel staff was pleasant and for the one night it was ok. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"University of Hartford visit"
Upon checking in, we found that we were staying in the detached section of the hotel. I was somewhat disappointed with this room. It seemed dated and somewhat dirty and it was not anything like the pictures on the website. The heater would not work so I went to the front desk to let them know of the situation. The desk clerk was a very helpful gentlemen […] and he immediately moved us to a room in the main hotel. This room was exactly as the pictures were shown on the website. The service was super. The shuttle driver was extremely friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not as great as the pictures"
While the grounds are pretty, the rooms themselves were very disappointing. Old school in a bad way. Also tried to get breakfast to the room but they never picked up the order.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great restaurant and bar in site. Was able to score a room opposite Rt10&44. Short drive to Hartford.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quick Business Trip"
I had stayed before in the late fall and was in the main part of the hotel. This reservation had me in the old section and the room was stuffy and without A/C. Because of the stuffy air and the lack of A/C I was uncomfortable and did not sleep well. I would not accept a room in this section if I came back. The internet was also slow.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"conveniant location to big city, or country"
I speant a little extra money for what I thought would be a better room, didn't seem to be worth the extra, the room was neat and clean, but seemed like just another hotel room, will get a standard room next timeGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Awesome getaway !"
I "kidnapped" my husband and took him to the Avon Old Farm Hotel in Avon, Connecticut. He loved it ... and so did I ! It was our first visit, and we hope to return someday. Our room was lovely - complete with canopy bed and all the comforts of home. The only negative thing I would add, is that we heard every door shut the following morning. So I tried […] to quietly close our door when we left our room, and it was impossible. The door mechanisms do not allow for a quiet closing. Our breakfast in the hotel restaurant was outstanding. My husband and I both enjoyed a very relaxing and delicious breakfast, served promptly. Again, it was a splendid visit at this hotel, and the room rate was reasonable.

"Go for the Real Thing"
I've stayed many times at Avon Old Farms and always enjoy the accommodations. This time I went for the economy room, and I didn't feel quite as safe as I do when my room opens onto a hotel coordinator rather than out to the parking lot. Rooms that aren't within the hotel proper should have better locks on the doors. The room rates are quite reasonable, […] so I recommend skipping economy. And enjoy the fabulous art work in the hotel corridors! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hartford University Delta Gamma Parent's Day"
Came up to Hartford for our daughter's sorority parents day. Had an enjoyable time and the room was very nice. My wife and younger daughter loved everything about the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In the style of an old New England hotel"
Even though this hotel is fairly new, it evokes the style of an old New England hotel. I like the nice reproduction Early American furniture, the framed old "Found Father" prints and watercolors of Connecticut towns on the walls. Both restaurants were also nice, and I liked being able to dine in the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent facilities and staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The heating/air conditioning unit was very noisy and prevented me from getting a good night sleep. Service was non existent. No complimentary breakfast was offered as was at other locations during our travel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice old establishment..."
Maybe living on their laurels, This place needs redo. Windows that can't block the parking lot lights, standing in 6 inches of water in shower, shower heads leaking...Genuine Expedia guest review
"A nice hotel in the Old New England style"
Even though the hotel is relatively new, it has the charm of an old style New England hotel. I liked the furnishing, and the framed old "founding father" prints on the walls combined with watercolors of nearby Connecticut towns. Both restaurants were also very nice. The room was a nice size, with a large bathroom. The bed was comfortable, with nice […] armchairs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Quaint and pleasant stay"
This hotel was nicely maintained but some of the furniture was outdated and the more expensive rooms arent really necessary. However be sure to request one in the main building. The breakfast was wonderful and moderately priced. I would stay here again if needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel well-situated"
In a two-night stay, the first night was very quiet and we felt like it was our private hideaway. The second night there were many more guests and it was not quite as quiet, but still peaceful. The bed was very comfortable and we figured out the thermostat on the heat/ac unit by the middle of the first night, so the temperature was perfect for the rest […] of our visit. One of us had work to do, so the desk was put to use but so were the easy chairs. We had a great time at Avon Old Farm Hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Old fashion midscale, lacking modern convenience"
I have been staying in the hotel for 3 nights and was hoping to work from the hotel as my work in computer related. Here are my pros and cons. Pros. 1. Beautiful location and environment. The hotel is old fashioned, interior is solid, 20 century real stuff. 2. The bed is comfortable and solid. 3. Delicious food in the hotel restaurant. 4. Good staff, […] very friendly and also old fashioned, which is not bad here. 5. Good shampoo 6. Nice TV (I never watch but it is) 7. Open (no password!) free internet. Cons. 1. Loud doors. There is no soft restriction to the doors and when they shut, it is like a gun shot. I was awaken by it when I had a nap at day. The lady was checking the rooms and that was like a gun shot for every 3 minutes. They just have to install the modern door devices that do shut the doors but softly. All network hotels do have them. 2. Conditioner is loud and very old 3. Electric sockets! Oh my! There are very few of them and forget about modern sockets in the desk lamps. It is challenging to find a socket to charge your computer or a smart phone. 4. Toilets are for small ladies only. I mean short and also old. 5. Internet is slow! 6. The desk is extremely low. I put phone books under the legs and still hit the desk with my knees. Well, I have long legs but there are many people 6 feet tall as I am. Very uncomfortable to work there. 7. Old fashion chairs. The armchair had a nail in the bottom and I cut my arm when I moved it closer to the desk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quant & charming"
We didn't expect anything fancy or new so we were not let down. The hotel is nice, well loved and well appointed. The view was beautiful as were the common areas. The room was not updated and yet not quite antique but it was clean and adequate for us. We were in town to visit family who don't have room for us so we needed just a place to sleep but did […] not spend much time there during our waking hours. The coffee and pastries were a nice touch. Wifi and parking are free. We did not eat in the restaurant or go to the workout room so I cannot comment on those. We would stay here again. The location was great as were visiting family in Avon - just a short drive away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"NE Charm at its best BUT needs to step it up..."
Been there 100 times. So, I keep coming back. Great town, convenient, great food in restaurant and comfy rooms. Needs to step up a bit as for hotel health / gym facility and perhaps some fresh paint. ;) - still a classic, but could use some TLC and certainly someone who knows health and health improvement to equip the workout facility that has not changed […] in about...20 years.
