The renovations are beautiful. The staff was nothing but excellent and accommodating. The entire hotel was stunning, from design to staff. I have no complaints and hope to return in the summer! Even though it was the winter when I stayed, it was still lovely.

From the moment I walked in I was welcomed and felt extremely accommodated by the staff!

The room was bright, clean and spacious and even came with a wine bottle opener! The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in. I want to come back during the season to stay and enjoy everything the town has to offer. Most of the shops were closed over NYE but as we drove through it...

My friends and I have been coming to this property every January for 30+ years and the latest renovations are stunning. The staff has always been top drawer (gracious, friendly and accommodating), so it's wonderful that the quality of the decor is beginning to approach their level of excellence. I recommend this hotel wholeheartedly, especially in the off-season.

We enjoyed two nights over Black Friday weekend. The room was beautiful, we had a king with sleeper and it was great for our family of four. We look forward to visiting in the summer! Avalon and Stone Harbor were festive with holiday activities.

Kitchen is pretty complete. No toaster I think but you can do pretty much since it even includes a two burner cooktop. Staff very friendly and helpful. Quiet and clean as well as attractive. Spacious room. Well lit onsite parking.

Took a ride from Diamond Beach Icona to experience the new Icona Golden Inn. Had a wonderful lunch in Shimmers Bistro. Had the complete tour thanks to Randel Davis. So glad we did. We are definitely coming back for the Memorial Day Weekend. The place is absolutely stunning. Reminds me of an updated Nantucket inn.
