We booked and PAID for a room in SEPTEMBER 2014 for a stay in JULY 2015. In the middle of April they called and cancelled our reservation. They said they were overbooked. It took them 7 months to figure this out!?! I think they're full of crap. So, needless to say, they weren't willing to refund me 7 months of...

No A/C in any of the rooms was working, was told by staff to close curtains and hope room didn't get too hot....... Filthy rooms, poor service, elevator broke down twice while I was there. Continental breakfast was a joke...... Not worth the money I paid for the room.

Booked here for a last minute trip when most other area hotels were sold out. It looked ok in the pics so I thought I would give it a try. Their was only one person at front desk and a line that took almost 30 minutes to get to the counter. After all that, was given a king bed room...

I would not stay there again. Upon check in the front desk staff was less than courteous. The couch in our room was stained, which is disgusting. The furniture was well worn to say the least. There was no room in the parking garage, which is not very large nor well lit. We had to park down the street at...

Just some quick observations... We stayed in a "newly-renovated" King Room. Evidently "newly-renovated" means new carpet, and maybe a new bed cover. The window still had moss and mold growing on it, the furniture was 1970's style with numerous scraped and dings from decades of use, and the bathroom dub was old with rust. The HVAC system sounded like a...

Disgusting hotel, never again. Coffee pot was broke and never replaced. Tub would not drain so in a 2 day stay 1 person got 1 shower. Asked for handicap room...far from it. Multiple stairs from parking garage, not wheel chair friendly.

At check in, no information about anything was given. Had to ask where to park. It was efficient. Door was open to our room. Phone had different room number. One washcloth had something stuck in it. Towels were very worn. Our shower was recently tiled and clean, I suspect because there had recently been a leak over our shower which...

I have stayed at the Avalon several times since the 1990s. I did notice a decline about ten years ago. Based on that and reviews I saw on other sites I stayed away for five years or so. I liked it because of the location close to the Arena when I came to town for a hockey game. After seeing...
