I have been coming over to Catalina and Avalon since I was a small child, more than 50 years. One of the remarkable changes in the last ten years has been the cleaning up of the City of Avalon. The Island Company and the local business owners seem to have found a balance of tidying the streets, encouraging some nice...

Our 2nd stay at the Avalon Hotel, and the outstanding service, amenities, and room condition remains very high. (Consistency) Spent a day at the beach, and the Sun Screen provided with the bath amenities was a welcome surprise. Lorie & Richard were great . . . as usual, along with the entire staff. We stayed in first floor again to...

In such a small community (Avalon Harbor) it might be taken for granted that every property is well located. That's not the case. The Avalon Hotel is situated far enough from the high density tourist area to enjoy real calm and quiet; a joy when you're sitting on your balcony, or on the fully furnished rooftop, or in the terrific...

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Avalon Hotel. The staff was very friendly and attentive, the rooms were clean and modern, though small. The Friday happy hour was nice, as was the rooftop deck. There were lots of free little niceties (snacks in the lobby, bottled water in the courtyard, continental breakfast); the wifi was also...

We purchased a package deal that included 2 nights and roundtrip Catalina Express ride for 2 people. We can't say enough how worth it this deal ended up - with all the service, amenities, staff. This 15 room hotel is beautiful interior and exterior. The amenities and complimentary items you get far exceeds a 4 star hotel. (Read Melodie S...

It just doesn't get any better than this. We had an amazing time on our trip to Catalina Island, made even better by the service, amenities and staff of this beautiful hotel.

We stayed three days and two nights at The Avalon Hotel. We had room 305. It is a garden view room, but if you stand at the window, you have a great view of the ocean. In this room, we had absolute quiet and a king size bed. This was our first visit to Catalina, and I know we will...

Enjoyed our time here immensely. Room # 102 was delightful though there was traffic noise with the sliding door to the balcony open. Our room was spotless & the staff were cordial, professional & most accommodating. Continental Breakfast was excellent & view from 4th floor deck terrific.

Thank you for your wonderful comments. We have a great housekeeping staff and they do their best to assure a clean and comfortable room. We did bring in a sound expert during our remodel to assist us in making our rooms as quite as possible. If our sliding doors and windows are closed, it is very quiet in our rooms....

Everything was perfect from the beginning Complimentary taxi transportation from the boat terminal to hotel (not that you really need it since it is only about a 10min walk).
