My girlfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary with a weekend trip to Catalina. The Edgewater Hotel was one of the very few places that allowed us to stay for one night (the majority of hotels on the island require a two night minimum stay). Not only was the room beautiful it had an amazing view of the ocean...

My fiancee Michelle and I recently visited Avalon. It was special as our trip merged Michelle's birthday with our engagement. We stayed at The Edgewater Hotel. The proprietor Barbara was not only attentive to all of our needs but was very caring and friendly. Barbara, if you are reading this, "Thank You" from both Michelle and I. We will come...

We stayed at the Edgewater for a weekend getaway to Catalina and had a wonderful time. The location of the hotel is perfect, right on the beach and in the middle of the Catalina boardwalk area. Everything that there is to do on Catalina was right outside our door. Additionally, our room was fantastic. It was spacious, had a great...

Absolutely enjoyed my stay here at The Edgewater; the hotel was recently remodeled but it's charming 1920's character remains intact. Prime location, in the heart of the Catalina boardwalk...in the middle of it all. The owner, Barbara, made sure our stay was nothing short of pleasant. She went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves, and that...

We booked two rooms at this hotel. My husband, myself, and our 2 children stayed in the suite overlooking the water and my parents booked a room down the hallway. We all had a wonderful experience. You can't beat the location. It's in the heart of all of the action with a fantastic view. In the evening my husband, my...

We so enjoyed our time at the Edgewater. It was perfect for us to be right in the center of everything! We were able to snorkel off the casino and have lunch and ice cream. After that, the kids swam of the float deck and we stayed for the Monday night movie on the beach. Tuesday we hiked to the...

Although "The Edgewater" was half the price compared to many of the other hotels, that lower price was reflected in the lack of good customer service and cleanliness. We were first greeted by a housekeeper named Esperanza, who had choppy English. She was actually the one who signed us in (credit card receipt already printed out since we prebooked the...

I spent a week there with my daughter in room #1 & it cost $3095.00. Fabulous view & location. Room was very clean, beds new, but were a bit hard.
