Overview

Occupying an entire oceanfront block of Avalon, New Jersey, the Golden Inn was a Jersey Shore landmark for half a century before being purchased by the ICONA Resorts brand in 2015. Reopened in summer of 2016 after a $15 million renovation, the hotel features all-new interiors with custom furnishings in classic Nantucket style. The resort now boasts three dining options including the East Coast's only beachfront microbrewery, Avalon Brew Pub, Shimmers Bistro and the outdoor Sandbar Village (open seasonally) as well as a brand new 24-hour fitness center.

Each room at the resort has a balcony or terrace, minifridge, microwave and Keurig coffeemaker; Wi-Fi is free throughout. Accommodations are flooded with natural light and feature white walls, carpeting and sheer drapery. Against tufted, creamy leather headboards, marble tables and painted wood furnishings, pops of nautical navy suggest a seaside theme. Visitors can upgrade to studios with galley kitchens and bistro dining tables or suites that add the space and comfort of living rooms with sleeper sofas.
