This place has wonderful breakfasts, good A/C for hot days, and is a great location, near the beach (and has requisite outdoor shower, etc.). It has potential, but unfortunately, right now, it is not living up to it. The price is too high for the condition of the room we were in. The place needs a deep cleaning. Some of... More

I'd probably say between a 2 and a 3. We stayed over 4th of July weekend and to celebrate my birthday in one of the loft apartments (#7) and my sister-in-law and brother-in-law stayed on the second floor in Room #5. Our 2 adult daughters came on different nights to stay with us. PROS: Great Location—2 short blocks from the... More

the idea that owners do not use common room is odd and not sit on the porch is strange. this is our home the up charge per person is $15 this covers a full breakfast towels and linens the price does not even cover the cost we are replacing the futons More

We stayed in room #1 which had it's own exterior door for private access. Very nice. We loved the room especially the sitting area and mini-refrigerator. Couldn't figure out how to turn on the overhead light. Barbara and Ed were extremely friendly host and hostess. Very nice breakfast as well, especially the wonderful fresh fruit and a lemon/almond coffee cake... More

Yes, it is close to the beach and Avalon is a beautiful town. However, our experience wasn't a good one. We were never offered off-street parking--maybe that was a former owner. Our bathroom was dirty and the mattress is in desperate need to be replaced. I couldn't sleep for two nights. The room was adequate but I just couldn't get... More

New owners and live-in inn keepers have cleaned up the only bnb on the island offering warm personal service including off-street parking, beach tags, wifi, and a delicious breakfast of quiche, fresh baked goods, fruits and beverages after a restful sleep all a block from the beach.

We stayed at the Sealark based on glowing reviews on Trip Advisor and others. It is now under new ownership and needs work. The positives are good location-one block from great beach and easy walk to main shopping and dining area, free WiFi, excellent breakfast. But, the interior needs updating, the bathroom (room 5) was tiny with a small prefab... More

There is soap and shampoo dispensers on the wall of the shower. And they were full. I was on my knees in the garden, hands all dirty when she asked for help with her luggage. I said "not now".

This is the only B&B in Avalon. It is also the only hotel-type place in the surrounding area (around 30th street) - the rest of the hotels in Avalon-Stone Harbor are all lumped together closer to 90th street. This makes the surrounding beach around this B&B less crowded than it otherwise would be. It is also 1 block from the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lovely turn of the century building. Tastefully decorated. Daily breakfast buffet with hot and cold dishes. We are new owners and very enthusiastic about our new venture. We are making some improvements, but hoping to preserve the charm of this old house. All rooms are air-conditioned and heated. We are open year round. We are one block from the beach, and one block from the stores and restaurants of Avalon. ... more   less

“We only saw room #1. It was very nice.”

“Room 2 is spacious and the whirlpool tub is great. It also gets beautiful light in the morning. We usually stay in either room 2 or room 5. There's a top floor loft apartment with a tiny kitchenette, that room is popular as well and I believe has an ocean view.”

“The room you select may depend on how with how many people you travel. There are rooms great for 2 people and then also lofts if you have 3 or 4.”

“Try rooms on the second floor. They might be better than the loft studios since they are the original bedrooms of the house.”
