This is your home away from home. The beds are so comfortable plus the bath amenities are fantastic. The hotel accomidated our small group of friends as well. The balconies are so wonderful only to be topped by the staff's friendliness and cleanliness. You have not taken a bath until you have bathed in the fabulous bathtubs and sea salts....

What a lovely place to stay! The hotel is close to the main part of Avalon, but away from bustle. It was quiet, comfortable, and the amenities were great. The staff is very friendly and helpful without getting in your way. When you have a concern, they respond quickly. For example, the first evening my husband and I wanted to...

We found this hotel an Snique Away and booked a balcony room for a night. We arrived at a lovely, quaint hotel, a half block off the beaten track, and checked in with an enthusiastic and helpful desk clerk, who took us to our room. The room was reasonably sized and the amenities were very nice. The room was clean,...

The staff were very helpful and gracious. The location was nice and slightly offset from the main street which we liked.. The views were great and the little eating area was quaint. We would come back here for future trips.

Though it was a bit chilly in the air, the hospitality of the staff at the hotel as well as the people on the island kept us warm. We had a lovely stay of two nights and this island feels so exotic, not like anything else in the US. I can really recommend everyone a trip here, and of course...

Hubby and I took 2 nights/3 days off from the kids to come to Catalina, and decided early on the Avalon. The staff was super friendly and warm, and we feel like we got exactly what we had planned - a clean, nicely done room with a beautiful view of the harbor. The only reason I didn't give more stars...

What a delightful hotel. Just off of the beaten path but close enough to everything. A short walk from the ferry or take a golf cart limo. The rooms were beautifully laid out with comforts abound. We love the African mahogany wood that decorated the room and entry door. We stayed in room 301 that faced the harbor and I...
