Golden Inn: Jewel of the Jersey Shore

Rising above the dunes on the beach in Avalon, the Golden Inn Hotel and Resort is truly a jewel of the Jersey Shore. A 154-room resort, the Golden Inn is the premier vacation destination in South Jersey, offering guests amenities ranging from beachfront rooms and suites to several exceptional restaurants.

The Golden Inn has undergone remodeling over the off-season with multiple renovations to Luigi’s Pasta & Vino restaurant as well the Sandpiper Ballroom; a world-class meeting and conference venue. The Beach Club also received a face-lift and was renamed the Sandbar and Grille.

The wide range of amenities and room options available at the Golden Inn ensure that each guest’s unique vacationing needs are met. All rooms include pillow-top beds for optimal relaxation and a balcony for views of the beach or breezy star-gazing. From a beach getaway with the girls to a family reunion with everyone, we are delighted to be your special event destination and we have just the package for every group or occasion. July, Stay and Dine Getaways run Sunday through Thursday and include dinner for two with each overnight stay with two, three, or even five night stays available in or West Wing Standard Rooms, starting at $559.

Looking for a more active getaway? Enjoy a sunny round of golf at near-by golf courses or soar with the gulls on a parasailing excursion. No matter your preferred flavor of adventure, the Golden Inn is minutes away from countless recreation destinations. In more of a ‘Zen’ mood? Enjoy Yoga on the beach in front of the Golden Inn between 78th and 79th Streets, Saturday and Sunday mornings through the end of August.

We have three great dining options as well to suit every palate. The Seaglass Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and hosts a rotating line-up of great dining specials and live entertainment. Retractable glass walls allow cool ocean breezes to wash through the room while guests enjoy hand-crafted cocktails and expertly prepared cuisine. Starting July 7, the Seaglass features Prime Rib dinner specials on Mondays, Avalon Lobster Bake Wednesdays and ‘Family Fridays’ where children under 10 eat free. After dinner, enjoy local and regional acts that include the likes of Bitter Sweet, Soul Cruisers and Doug Knight.

Luigi’s Pasta and Vino, home of the ‘Pasta your Way’, offers a smaller, more intimate dining experience with traditionally inspired pasta dishes and fresh, locally sourced seafood. And on Sunday nights through Labor Day guests can enjoy half-priced bottles of wine.

The newly remodeled Sandbar serves ice-cold drinks and light fare in a relaxed and open-air venue. Patrons can keep their toes in the sand and a drink in their hands while enjoying live entertainment all summer long. With Reggae Sundays and daily drink specials throughout the week, the Sandbar is place to be this Summer. Daily drink specials range from $4 Mojitos on Mondays to $3 Fireball Whiskey drinks on Fridays and $5 ‘drink of the day’ specials all week long.
