  • My husband and I hosted our (very last-minute) small ceremony at ICONA Avalon. Alyssa (Director of Wedding Sales) and Ashley (Wedding Specialist) worked with us to make our wedding incredibly special, despite all the restrictions. We had our ceremony on the beach with approximately 20 guests and our reception at rented spaces (2 firepits and 2 cabanas) at the Sandbar. All of our guests felt very comfortable and were able to stay socially distanced. We chose to serve passed appetizers and open bar, both of which were served promptly. All staff were wearing masks (correctly). We had our ceremony at 6:30 and had no issues with other beach patrons while taking photos. ICONA provided chairs and a walk way and also assembled the arch we rented. All of our other vendors were suggested (not required) by the team and were wonderful to work with as well. I was very impressed by the team and their ability to make a COVID ceremony still feel like the best day of our lives.

  • Great experience. We had a great experience working with Avalon. They were extremely helpful throughout the process. They were receptive to any concerns we had and answered all questions. It is expensive but competitive for the area and the most beautiful site in my opinion. Our guests had a great experience and had nothing but positive things to say. The only issue we had was getting rooms booked for guests and the overall cost of the rooms— some had to call back several times during the off season, possibly because there is not as much staff there at reception answering phones. Also it is expensive to stay there even if you are having a wedding there but again costs are comparable with other venues in the area.

  • We would have hired them if they had our date or one close to what we wanted. The furniture and decor is lovely, I wanted to bring it home. The attached Brew Pub was outstanding! I suggest requesting Tim as your bartender. The rooms and suites and fresh and clean and very spacious. Makes me sad they didn’t have availability for us.

  • We held our post-wedding brunch at the Icona Avalon. The event coordinator was very attentive and receptive to our questions in the weeks leading up to the event. They really worked with us to find a perfect event space for our brunch. The food was also plentiful and delicious!! Our guests really enjoyed the bright and relaxed atmosphere.

  • I had my wedding at the ICONA Avalon this past March and everything was exceptional. The service and responsiveness from the employees, especially Alyssa (DOS) & Ashley (Wedding Planner) was great. The quality of food, decor, accommodations, etc. were wonderful. They even renovated the outside patio to make it enclosed which was great because our wedding was in March and guests could enjoy the outside atmosphere for cocktail hour without being outside. Everything was perfect.

  • We had our wedding on 11-11-17 at 1130am at the Golden INN . We planned our wedding through emails and phone calls due to we live in Tampa , Fl and wanted to have our wedding close to our family in New Jersey. So Avalon was perfect and the Golden INN even more perfect. Staff and location was on point . Communicating was easy and reliable from afar no matter what time of day. I would get emails back at all hours of the night it seemed like. I was impressed. The day of our wedding it was seamless. Food was great. Decorations perfect. Entertainment was contagious . Our guest were having a blast and so were we. Thank you for helping us make our memories so beautiful .

  • I can't speak highly enough of everyone at Icona Golden Inn! Our wedding was just incredible, despite the rain plan we needed to put into play. We haven't stopped hearing rave reviews from our guests about the food, service and newly renovated surroundings! Everyone has been asking us if we can do it all over again!

  • The Golden Inn was a great hotel for our family and friends to stay at for our wedding. They were so accommodating and took care of everyone. The food, service, and views were great. Jen, our wedding coordinator was so professional, easy to work with, and helpful. She made our day perfect. All of our family and friends raved about the wedding and hotel. We had the time of our lives here.

  • Honestly I was in love with Icona's grounds when we booked it as our venue. And truly had nothing but great things to say. But something was always off. For starters our food tasting was completely forgotten about. When my entire family showed up, Ashley said it was because we were texting the details instead of emailing them. I was given her number to text, so I don't believe this is my fault nor should I have ever been blammed. However they did make it up to us and we moved on from there. But when the Pandemic hit and things got shuffled so did our wedding. We were never actually contacted to check in, we always had to call to see what was going on. Our vision did not fit the temporary plan that the venue had put into place for all displaced weddings that could not be held inside. We did not want to have our dream day on their Veranda terrace. It didn't feel like us. We tried to work with the team to create another outdoor option that would take place in the hotel rooms and dune fron... Read more

  • We did our ceremony, reception and our guests stayed here. The food was amazing and they were very accommodating and helpful. They went out of their way to make us happy. Sometimes email responses took awhile but when they responded they were always kind and courteous. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a beautiful, stress free wedding :)

  • We had a few communication issues in the beginning with the staff at the Golden Inn. In the end everything was worked out and the day was amazing. It rained the entire day- I still wanted to get married on the beach, Jen and her group worked with us to make sure that I was able to have the ceremony on the beach still. Our drinks were cold and the food was great. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was and how great the food was. It was a great time!
