Reviewed 12 September 2017

I had stayed at the Golden Inn years ago. It was a tired old hotel in desperate need of renovation. I did not return. Until this past weekend. I would not have believed this renovation was even possible. It is fresh and beautiful, with impeccable decorating. The rooms are spa like and fresh with an all white theme. Simply elegant. We ate breakfast and one dinner at the new Brew Pub and Petar was attentive and friendly. Although we like to explore area restaurants since this was our first trip to Avalon, it is nice to be able to grab something to eat right on the property.

The front desk staff could not have been nicer. A lovely women (whose name I cannot remember but begins with A??) was accommodating and friendly. As we requested a room change when a king bed became available for our second night, Matthew make the transition seamless and went out of his way to deliver superb service. Thank you Matthew! He even booked our next year's vacation before we left.

Kudos to Icona!! You developed a true treasure in Avalon. We look forward to our week with you next July!!

Room Tip: 2 chaise lounges are included in the daily room price so no need to drag chairs if 2 is enough.

I really enjoyed staying at the Golden Inn. You can't ask for a better location and they offer great amenities. The pool area is spacious with two bars near by and a fire pit to sit by in the evening. The rooms are very clean and spacious and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. I look forward to returning for another vacation there in the future.

Icona Golden Inn was a wonderful stay! Very courteous employees, very clean, nice pool and awesome beach bar restaurant. First time I was in Stone Harbor/Avalon and it's lovely!! - I'd highly recommend it!

The ICONA Golden Inn has been our girls weekend spot for years....on the water, pool, and staff are the reason we keep coming back. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and the service is top notch! Alex and CarrieAnn have been outstanding employees in so many ways!
Looking forward to next year!

We made a last minute decision to do a long weeked at Icona...what a great decision. The roooms(we had 2) were gorgeous, the hotel grounds stunning. Staff members Alex and Carrie Ann (sp) and were attentive and outgoing and Alex handled a minor billing snafu quickly. We can't wait to go back and spend more time at this beautiful resort.
Being able to walk to the beach in seconds is perfection.
