The only issue was that the elevator was out of service. However, this was the off season (december) so I understand.

Everything was great - except SO NOISY
Almost everything was fantastic. Our room itself was super comfy with a little fireplace. It was a convenient location. The shower was incredible. The service was good. But we must have gotten the worst room in the hotel. We were right next to a maintenance room, the breakfast buffet, the lobby, and the driveway. So we had loud people coming and going all night. We were woken up at 5:45am from the workers setting up breakfast. And the whole hotel is above an outdoor mall. On the other side, we were above a restaurant, so we had the workers leaving and talking loudly until almost 11pm. You had people hanging out in the mall loudly talking at all hours of the day and night. It. Was. So. Loud. I really wanted to like this hotel. Everything else was great. But it was just so noisy.

Nice Hotel by the Beach
Beautiful hotel with nice, new, clean rooms. My stay was very comfortable, and I had a nice view of the courtyard. The hotel is centrally located and very convenient to everything that Avalon has to offer. I was pleasantly surprised by the delicious continental breakfast with excellent pastries and options. Thank you for making my stay awesome!

Hotel advertises that they do VIP upgrades for premium members and they did not honor that. Hotel also advertises guaranteed 2 hour extended check out and they did not honor that as well. Booked an ocean view room and received a room with a view of another hotel across the street and a small sliver of the ocean. Found it to be misleading. Overall, I don’t think the staff tried to make our stay pleasant, for every request that was made, their response was “we don’t do that”. Extremely disappointed considering we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary there.
