I have been staying on the island every season for 20 years. I have never written a hotel review in my life but feel compelled to warn others about this nightmare of a hotel. I have to assume that any positive reviews posted are generated by the owner of this horrible place. Not only was the facility completed misrepresented on the phone, the service was terrible. Rooms were smelly and comically small, disgustingly dirty, no AC and swealtering hot, so unbelievably noisy that we did not sleep any night. Personal property was stolen from our rooms while we we out, (they would not stay out of our room no matter how much we pleaded) and if that was not enough, the owner fraudulently charged our credit card for some kind of "extra service", which is almost laughable as there was absolutely no service at all. What little interacftion we had with the owner was very dissapointing as they were extremely rude; as if they were doing us a favor. There are a lot of nice hotels on Avalon, this is definatley not one of them. Don't make the same mistake. Stay away from this dump if you want to ensure you have a good time on the island.
