This hotel is perfectly located on the beach front. Great view from the balcony! There is a karaoke bar on the ground floor which might get very loud at night. The room was pretty clean apart from some hair found on pillow case of one of the pillows ☹️ Overall is good and convenient location.

We have visited this historic hotel several times, & would not think of staying anywhere else on our next visit.

Went back to The Edgewater and had the most delightful weekend getaway! The rooms are clean, comfortable and newly remodeled. The light breakfast with coffee bar is wonderful to sit at if others in your room are late sleepers--perfect place to sit and relax. The hosts Barbara and Brittani we found out are 4th generation owners of the hotel and...

Good location near the water in Catalina. Rooms were clean and service was good. I was there in the winter and it was very quiet. Short walk from the ferry terminal. Decent views from second level. We would stay there again.

The Edgewater is a delightful, family-owned and operated hotel located in the heart of Avalon. Comfortable updated rooms with the original Art Deco charm still intact, Continental breakfast, and some of the best views of the harbor in town from the two ocean-view suites - what more can you ask for?

Greetings from The Edgewater! Thank you for your kind review! We strive to offer a comfortable and relaxing island experience while honoring the island's unique Art Deco charm and history. We agree that the panoramic views from our Ocean-view Suites quite possibly could be the best in town...but we are bias! We hope to see you on the island again...

Great view of the beach, good service. They provide bagels, donuts, juice and coffee. Good location. In the middle of all stores and restaurants. The downside is that the walls are thin. We had Oceanview View #2 and we could hear everything from #1.
