A newly reopened, laid-back retreat on a peaceful stretch of the Jersey Shore, with room for up to four

Those who’ve experienced the Jersey Shore know it as a stretch of sandy Atlantic coast that’s often a quiet and wholesome retreat from the party-loving Jersey Shore depicted on TV. At Icona Golden Inn, this is especially true, because the effortlessly elegant getaway occupies an entire block by the seaside, in an inviting neighborhood of other laid-back hotels and resorts. The former Golden Inn – Avalon’s largest beachfront hotel – has been around for half a century and offers a warm, inviting vibe and charming Nantucket-inspired architecture.

Since recently reopening the property, Icona – already celebrated for its Cape May hotels, both of which are TripAdvisor favorites – has added a charming bistro and a forthcoming brewpub. Also find a seasonal pool, complete with daybeds, and yoga on the sands of Avalon Beach. When you're not staying busy at the hotel, you'll find plenty to do in the surrounding area, with everything from golfing to deep-sea fishing. And when the sun goes down, explore the charming bars and restaurants of the area, before returning to your luxe retreat.

Studios

Accommodations are set in different wings, but standard among them are a balcony, Keurig coffeemaker, organic bath amenities and a galley kitchen, including a cook top, microwave, compact refrigerator, cookware and dishes. Décor gives a nod to another beloved beach resort: Massachusetts’ Nantucket, up the Atlantic Coast.

Over in the West Wing, the West King studio provides one California king bed and a full sleeper sofa. In the East Wing, you'll find both the East Northside Queen studio – with two queen beds – and the East Poolside King studio – with a California king bed and a full sleeper sofa; both of the East Wing accommodation offer an ocean view from their balcony.

Location

Avalon is one of the Jersey Shore’s quieter towns, just a short drive from Cape May and Stone Harbor in South Jersey. The main attraction here isn’t a buzzy nightclub scene – though you can find some of those up the coast – but the pretty Atlantic ocean and beaches, plus historic architecture. (Head to Cape May to see an especially lovely assortment of pastel-colored Victorians.) Of course, if you do want to experience some after-hours entertainment, there’s nightly live music in summertime. Younger guests may also attend summer arts-and-crafts, sports, face-painting and Bingo events.
