I'm here for a conference and had a minor problem with my room. The general manager (Mark) happened to be at the front desk at 10:30pm when I was in the lobby. Not only did he change my room, but he gave me an upgrade to a MUCH nicer room, without any fuss on my part - I would've been... More

The outdoor surroundings were breathtaking!(pool, hot tub, cabanas etc.) The rooms are spectacular and decorated with comfort in mind. Above all the staff is more than accommodating. From the minute you walk... More

We recently stayed 3 nights at the Icona Golden Inn in Avalon, NJ. The renovations are beautiful, and the amenities are first class.
