"Very nice and different from those Chain hotels"
This hotel totally surprised us. I wasn't expecting such a nice and different hotel.Genuine 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

"Convient to locations required to visit"
Very nice hotel. Phone didn't work. A call to front desk had a service man there within a few minutes to fix the problem. Very clean and comfortable. Good rate for the night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful, scenic property"
I was very impressed by Avon Old Farms Hotel. The rooms were beautifully appointed and very comfortable and the staff were all wonderful. We ate a few times at the bar, which had equally wonderful staff and food.Genuine Expedia guest review

"decent hotel, snotty service"
Service in the pub was fine, but night clerk at the desk was absolutely snotty about a request for a place to run in the morning. Would not recommendGenuine 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.

"Avon hotel stay in October"
The hotel was charming and our room was very clean. The desk staff was friendly. The cleaning staff didn't restock used items until I asked and room service asked me to come and pick up my own food because they were quite busy at 8 pm on Thursday night. I was disappointed that there were not a small refrigerator in the room. Didn't even think to confirm […] that on amenities list before we made reservation, and staying a week, this led to a bit of problem as I had my son with me. I enjoyed the location and found it quite simple to get to a lot of places from that starting spot each day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"dust bunnies under the bed"
a rip in the couch surprised me. Also there were shreds of toilet paper left in the toilet. Small rip in wall paper in the bathroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old, not so clean"
Very uncomfortable hotel. Except for the reception/lobby area nothing seem to be cleaned. I am a frequent business traveler and expect a good night sleep at the hotel in a clean environment. The walls of this hotel seem to be paper thin with no sound proofing - whole night I could not sleep because of a person watching TV (up till 3:30 AM) in the room […] next to me. By the way creaking floors were another annoyance. Another big disappointment - messy toilet, requires a hard scrub. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Historic Connecticut hotel"
The hotel itself is beautiful and situated in a nice quiet area. While in the outdoor pool, my wife and I actually saw a deer walk by on the other side of the wooden fence on the hill marking the property line not many feet away. Because the pool is outdoors and has a forest along its property line, I guess it's hard to keep clean which would explain […] while it wasn't the cleanest hotel pool we've been in. We had an enjoyable meal at the Seasons restaurant and made use of the well maintained fitness room. The room was very nice and the bed extremely comfortable with probably the softest hotel pillows I've slept on yet. The continental breakfast left something to be desired though, as it consisted only of coffee and pastries. The hotel is located in the heart of Connecticut, so it's within reach of just about anywhere you might want to go in CT whether it be Lake Compounce amusement park or Mystic Seaport.

Room needs updating. Bed was not very supportive or comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Over rated for the price."
Slightly over rated for the price. The staff was very nice but the hotel improvements are dated. The pool is unheated or at least it was when we were there and there was no internet access in the hotel room (only the lobby). The continental breakfast left much to be desired (coffee and/or juice and a danish).Genuine Expedia guest review
Helpful staff. Great beds. Scheduled another stay for next Spring.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice, simple accomodations"
Overall it was a nice place. Decent location, quiet. Stayed in main hotel portion (there is a section that is more motel style, that opens up to the parking lot, not interior hallways). Bar prices were a bit high ($6 for a draft beer) and food service at breakfast was a bit slow, but not painfully so. Overall, a nice simple place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
a most accommodating staff, and an excellent place for dinner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I upgraded to a hotel room rather than the economy room. The economy room had that old shower smell. The staff were very good at changing out my linens, because I am allergic to feathers. I really enjoyed the pool, very refreshing. I ordered lunch time food because you are not allowed outside food or drink in the pool area.. Only to find the bread was […] mouldy! yeuk. Anyway I went and got dunkin donuts and ate by the pool and nobody said anything. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall a decent and clean place to stay (could use an remodel). Very comfortable bed and a spacious room. The "continental" breakfast (?) left a lot to be desired (need to bring it up a few notches). I would recommend the hotel for someone looking for a clean, basic, no frills room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Few Glitches"
We stayed here three nights. The bed and bedding were extremely comfortable and the room was large, although a little tired. We ad a miscommunication with the housecleaner. She checked in with us before 9:00 a.m. to see if we "needed anything". Apparently saying no to that question meant don't clean this room today. The breakfast is pastries and coffee […] in the lobby. Not worth the walk. We'll stay at Residence Inn next time where the experience was very positive on an earlier trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Luxe price, non-luxe location"
This sprawling country inn style hotel has fine furnishings and ambience, but is lacking in a few areas for a hotel of its caliber and price: the location is not amenable to walking around since it's on a busy road and not in safe walking distance to any shops or sites; the tavern food was disappointing; and the housekeeping was not stellar. However, […] the room was very quiet and the bed was comfortable (though not as inviting after seeing all the dust bunnies hiding under it). The AC/fan was a bit loud, but the room was well soundproofed as I was not disturbed by any outside noise despite it being a busy weekend night with lots of wedding party guests. Overall, it was a bit pricey for what amounted to a fine place to sleep, period. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nasty, wet and stinky"
Overall the hotel is nice and the dinner was great but the room we were in was one of the top 5 worst I've been in. The floor was wet, the bets were wet and it smelled awful. It was like they had washed the sheets and decided not to dry them, and walking across the floor your feet would get wet. The sheets made me itch and the room smelled bad. Now […] on a positive note the dinner was good and they did refund the room Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I made an excellent chioce."
The Hotel STaff was great. Everyone and I mean everyone, treated us as if we were family. They went out of their way to see to our comfort.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Would never stay here again. They couldn't give me a room with properly functioning air conditioning. Very hot in room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a very nice stay. The hotel is quite pretty and has a charm that many hotel chains lack. The staff is very pleasant, able and considerate of guests needs.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful, nearly historic, old hotel"
Last time I was there was 20 years ago and some of the furniture is the same. But I got the sense they care about the place, just haven't had the resources or business to keep it at its best level. Still, for the price, I would certainly return. The service was better than good. The restaurant is better than the service. And you have the both the sense […] that this was something special back then and still has some of the specialness remaining. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great for the Businessman"
The appearance of the hotel on the outside is nice, however I was disappointed with our room. It was right near the staircase and it was very loud - like teenagers were having a party and it continued until 3 am with the front desk doing anything. Additionally, two of the lights in the room didn't work and the shower leaked. It's good if you're traveling […] through on business, but it definitely wasn't the romantic hotel we were looking for. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Kind of like a grand hotel at rates of a standard chain hotel! I was given a large room in the more "deluxe" area of the hotel so I am unsure what the other "standard" rooms are like, but it was very clean and quite and would be my first choice whenever staying in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice setting, but hotel needs updating."
The bathroom and bedroom need to be completely overhauled.Genuine Expedia guest review

"In need of serious updates."
The hotel feels homie, maybe a bit too much like home. The room didn't feel super clean but that could partly be because the fixtures are old. For example, the sink had massive cracks throughout it and the bathroom in general was outdated. The shower curtain was a bit mildewy and the picture frames needed some Windex. In general the hotel could use […] updating. Additionally, my room cracked and creaked all night long keeping me awake. I think it was when the heat was turned on because it would randomly sound like the walls were popping and crackling. Needless to say, I didn't sleep well. The free continental breakfast is a little sad. The pastries are sad, the fruit is sad and so is the coffee. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A quiet stay at elegant Avon Old Farms"
I always bring my own pillow from home. I slept like a baby. I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast in their dining room in the morning. Rated AAA in my opinion.Genuine Expedia guest review
We went to a concert at Infinity Hall in Norfolk, CT and stayed at the Avon Old Farms Hotel after. It was little bit out of our way, but a nice place to come back to.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed here twice for business. The first time the room was small and cramped and I could not controle the heat, it was 70 at all times so made sleeping very difficult as I typically like it cold. The one desk has a big old tv, coffee maker/supplies, ice bucket, and bulky lamp. No place to work on it at all. The bathroom has a very loud annoying vent […] that is on overtime you turn on the light. The second trip was similar except the heat would not go above 63 and was so noisy from outside traffic I could not sleep so requested a room at the back of the hotel. They "upgraded" me to a very nice room but same problems...blasting vent in the bathroom and little controle over the heat, either High, Low, or Off....Low was even too hot at night so had to turn it off and woke up freezing. This upgraded room was very spacious and uncluttered as apposed to the smaller ones. It's a nice hotel just outdated. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avon Old Farms Hotel"
We checked in around 7:30pm Sunday night. There is a reception area on the left when you first drive in and there is an announcement sign right outside but the sign is confusing. The top of the sign read: reception check in but below it the sign reads Upper Level. So we commenced to the upper level of the hotel and walked into a very nice space but […] no one was around, there were no signs about reception or anything. We drove back down to the first building and went in. It is a confusing sign. As well, there should be just a separate sing that indicates the first building is for check in. it was clear from the chagrined reception clerk, this happens often. It was nice that there was a place to have dinner up to 9pm Sunday night. The rooms was clean, the beds with the feather beds and nice linens make up for the worn carpet. I wish the bathroom didn't have an automatic fan go on when one turned on the lights because it was loud and bothersome. It's a comfortable hotel but I would like to see the carpet changed out. Glad it is a no smoking hotel. All personel were hospitable and professional. It was very convenient to where we had to go. I would stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The hotel is very charming but kind of dated"
The hotel is very charming but kind of dated. It serves the purpose of our trip, closed to where we want to go.Genuine Expedia guest review
The overall experience was good, the hotel provides transportation service if you request it in advance which is nice. However, my room didn’t have a fridge or a microwave which I found ridiculous. I also don’t believe I had a coffee maker or hairdryer, though I didn’t bother requesting one.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely and quaint"
They upgraded our rooms at check in without our even asking, and the pretty rooms with four poster doubles and a canopy queen were beautiful and very comfortable with feather beds and great pillows. Amazing water pressure! Great shower head and bath towels. Would definitely stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
