Here is a gift to thank you.
We cannot thank you enough for accommodating us.  It made this process easier because of you.  I hope the Owners know that you are one hell of a manager overseeing this place!  Take care.

Again, with appreciation,

It’s so nice to know that I have a place to stay in the future, when I’m in Rochester.  I was very pleased with the apartment.

extract from a review posted on TripAdvisor

We stayed for 4 nights during very cold and snowy February for a nearby swimming championship. We usually stay at chain hotels, but this was a great location and significantly less expensive. These are NOT hotel/motel rooms. They are furnished apartments, and suitable for extended stays. You can even cook your own meals in the complete kitchen…

We were greeted by a warm, comfortable and spacious apartment. The unit shows its age (probably built in the 70’s by the look of the stamped steel bifold closet doors, many layered painted trim, and painted plywood cabinetry) but everything was in excellent working order and the apartment was very clean. There was no hint of staleness or odd odors that we might have expected after descending into the basement. Despite being a daylight basement apartment, there is lots of light and the windows look out through the landscaping around the base of the building, and there are windows in the living/dining and bedroom areas. The sofa was a bit overstuffed and hard to climb into, but there is a real living room with end tables, coffee table, desk and lots of walking around room. The lighting was provided by table lamps that provided ample light at night. There is a nice LCD TV with USB and HDMI inputs, as well as 68 channels of Time-Warner Cable service. The Wi-Fi worked well. There is a full sized refrigerator and range in the kitchen, as well as a microwave. There are plenty of dishes, utensils, and the office has a “Library” of cookware that you can borrow if there is something you need that isn’t already in the cabinets. There are no condiments, but a new scrubbie and dish soap are provided.

The bathroom was big enough for my wife and I to both be in there at the same time. Again, it’s a bit aged, but everything was very clean and in perfect working order. Plenty of hot water, and a nice clean shower curtain. But, this is a furnished apartment, not a hotel/motel so there was no shampoo. There were bars of soap and plenty of towels, but if you want freshly laundered towels and bedding every day, you’ll have to do it yourself in the laundry next door.

The bedroom was very spacious as well. There was a comforter and pillows with shams on the bed, nice clean and good quality sheets and a blanket underneath, and OK pillows. The mattress was perhaps a bit soft for our tastes, but didn’t squeak or behave strangely at all. The furniture was like what my father-in-law had in his house built in the early 60’s. Funky, but entirely serviceable.

It took us the first night to convince ourselves we were going to do OK, and the place is huge compared with a Quality Inn or Holiday Inn Express. Over the next 3 days, the place became home and we really felt like it was our home away from home. In the recent past, we have stayed at Quality Inn’s that were terrible disappointments, so this was a very pleasant surprise for us. We would not hesitate to stay here if we ever find ourselves in the Rochester/Webster area again and would recommend it to our family and friends for it is a great value, and very comfortable, once you get over the 70’s look and feel.

A wonderful summer at Avalon!

googleplusreviewAvalon Suites is truly a home away from home. For our family reunion in July, we needed a place where my elderly parents could stay, rest and feel at home.   We used Avalon Suites as our home base.  We booked 2 two bedroom apartments for our of town guests and were very happy.  The apartments are clean and comfortable.  Debbie is a pleasure to work with.  I recommend Avalon Suites as a wonderful and economical alternative to hotels.

Special note from an Avalon guest. We get a lot of positive comments from our clients and we post several of them. The following came from a client’s blog which she sent to us. It made us feel good and demonstrates in a different and creative way what we strive to achieve:

“So one of the many things on my to-do list is finding a place to rent for three months near where I can keep an eye on the building of my new small house. No worries.  I have several options. But I checked out a furnished apartment that does not require a lease etc. and is designed for transient people like me. Here is what I learned simply by going to a new place to live for awhile (and this can also be a metaphor for new places spiritually):

*  Have a  map or a GPS handy

* Pay attention! I  immediately parked in front of the wrong building. But there were signs. Good ones.  I just had to look for them.

*  Be curious but keep your bearings lest you get lost.

*  Be open to receive new information and help 

*  Notice your thoughts and feelings

* Then observe  how thoughts, fears, and feelings can change very quickly . . . when the light is turned on. Like in a basement…the shadows can look ominous until you shed light on them.

Rental Office… The rental office was in the last building on the lowest level of all. In the basement. The invitation on the office door said to “Open and come on in.” I did and was warmly greeted. I sat and told my story about what I needed.

She was truly light in a basement. The office suddenly felt warm, friendly, and inviting. Lamps made it cozy. Her spirit made it welcoming. Her genuine interest in people shone brightly. The light switch in my heart was turned on and shadows disappeared for a time. As the Light in the basement, she brightened my day. Solomon wants us to remember to let our lights shine too so others can realize light can be found in the last building on the lowest level of all. In the least likely places. Tears were welcomed and shared there and laughter filled the air. I came away better for the encounter. Such is the shared journey. Remember! Your inner light shines in dark places too – so just show up. Be your genuine self. You never know. Small things we say and do make a big difference in each others lives! Happy shepherding wherever you are.”

This is a great place to stay.  Everyone is very attentive to their guests.  We have told many people about the Avalon.
-Jerry and Kathy

Debbie and Greg and the Housekeeping lady were all very friendly, professional, and personable.  They made us feel @ home and were very accommodating.
Sincerely,
-Sandra and Vincent

Avalon has been our base for five years while in the area for our annual family reunion. Always welcoming and accommodating, clean and comfortable.  Thank you for a great home-away-from-home!
-Geil

It was pleasant staying with Avalon for a month, same as usual.  Many thanks for the courtesy and kindness delivered by all your staff.
Best regards,

We would give Avalon a 10 out of 10!  Excellent.  Clean, comfortable, and felt like home.
Thank-you!

Dear Debbie,
Thanks for everything!  You make our stay a pleasant one!

TripadvisorWe have been staying at the Avalon apartments for many years and we have always been treated in a positive way. Debbie and her staff are the best. We love the fact that we don’t have to impose on our children and have the kitchen to make our own meals. The apts are very well equipped. We have a few things to give it a little more touch of home and then leave those things in a tote with our son to store until the next visit. It is in a very safe area and no questionable people hanging around. Some out of town workers stay here and might sit out at the picinic tables but always polite. Yes, it can be hard to turn left from the drive way but if you are patient, you can get out with little wait. Would we recommend Avalon apts? Most definitely!!
– Judith D.

To Debbie, Greg, Cindy and Blease:  You are a great team and work well together.  Very friendly and accommodating in every way.  Very convenient for us.
– Ray and Vi B.

No complaints.  Very clean. Price was right.  We will come again.
– Mr. and Mrs. B.

Dear Avalon, Thank you for all you’ve done to make our stay at Avalon a pleasure.  You’ve all been so helpful, and friendly that we’re feeling lucky to have had this place as home base while we waited for our house to be ready.  You folks are great!  We will be happy to recommend you to others.
– Sid and Liz M.

TripadvisorWe stayed at Avalon when my parents’ house was booked over the holidays. It as a nice home away from home. My son appreciated the expansive yards around the property to run and get his energy out. Management was quick to respond to a request for additional pillows.
Thanks, Dave L., and Avalon!
– The Lummels

Two things that are very important to us when staying away from home: comfort and cleanliness. Avalon offers both of these, which made our stay very enjoyable. Thank you, Avalon Team.

Will be returning to the area for training in the future, will stay with Debbie again.”

“My experience with Avalon Corporate suites was exemplary. Everything was perfect; the furniture, views, cleanliness, the staff; Debbie and Maria. I left a money pouch behind and they sent a staff member to the airport to deliver it to me. Unbelievable service and fantastic facility. Believe me because I have travelled worldwide and this experience was par excellence! I can not wait to return next month.”
– Linda | Hollywood, CA

“Hi Debbie, We were so delighted with the spaciousness, comfort and cleanliness of this apartment! It was conveniently located and provided everything we needed. We had plenty of room to have family join us for brief visits, and whenever we needed help with small things, Debbie was thoughtful, gracious and generous with time and supplies. The only downside was that it was a little tricky to adjust the shower temperature: it seems to fluctuate based on usage by others in the building, but once you figure that out and know to expect it and adjust accordingly, it was not a big deal at all. We would love to stay there again, and recommend Avalon with complete confidence. Thank you again, Debbie!”
– Suzanne D

“Dear Debbie, The two-bedroom suite surpassed our expectations, and we were very comfortable during our weekend stay. Your employee Maria was equally gracious and friendly when we first called to make reservations. Thank you both for making the experience so supportive during a time of crisis. Thank-you from the bottom of our hearts.”
– Sincerely, Colleen W-G | North Salem, NY
