Cute, rustic hotel on Catalina Island, walking distance to downtown and all the hot spots. I picked this hotel because of its location mostly, and because they came and picked us up after we landed by a helicopter from main land. You can walk to the dive shop from here and to al

as a lot of facilities on catalina, this hotel is pretty run down. I’d love a nice old fashioned victorian place - but this is nothing fancy, for the price it’s almost ridiculous. I guess we got one of the older rooms, breakfast (drip coffe, dry bagles and a couple of hard boiled

Thanks for your review. Glenmore Plaza Hotel is the oldest hotel on Catalina Island and the 2nd oldest in California. With that, we have recently renovated most of the hotel. Many have found our continental breakfast to be filling and great for starting the day. Your feedback will be shared with the management team for future improvement.

Another VERY highly priced hotel adjacent to Cresent Ave. Quaint rooms with a defunct sort of charm, all of the hotel staff were very accommodating. Had it not been for the blaring music (which kept us up until 2:30 in the morning), I would have given this hotel a 3/5 stars.

Thank you for your review. Our location definitely cannot be beat! Many do consider our hotel quaint and charming. Our unique history makes us even more interesting and our staff is top-notch, indeed. Unfortunately, we do not have control of the music outside. We hope you can reconsider adjusting the rating as you mentioned. Thank you so much and we hope you next time you visit Catalina Island.

Jack at the front desk was awesome to give us an intro on the history of the hotel and other golden nuggets about Avalon. The room was clean, very functional, extremely comfortable. Great experience. One of the oldest hotels in Calif.

Thanks, Sanjiv. We appreciate your time writing this review. Glenmore Plaza Hotel is the 2nd oldest hotel in California and the oldest hotel on Catalina Island! Our recent renovations have added nice modern amenities but leaving our quaint Victorian charm and untouchable history. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and we will pass on the nice words to Jack. Hope to see you again soon.

Good location in the middle of town and walking distance to the beach. Oldest hotel on Catalina Island but some rooms and suites have been renovated. We stayed at the Charlie Chaplin Suite. It was very roomy and I specially liked the size and decor of the bathroom. The shower

Thanks for your review. We are happy you enjoyed the Charlie Chaplin Suite and found our staff was friendly. Our complimentary shuttle and complimentary daily continental breakfast is definitely an added convenience for guests. As the oldest hotel on Catalina Island, our history and uniqueness cannot be beat. We have recently renovated much of the hotel and will continue to improve upon the remainder. Please know that our staff is happy to assist with baggage to the top floors. Because of our central location, and being steps from the beach, you will hear people outside enjoying the evening. Thanks for staying with us and hope you will return to next time you're visiting Catalina Island.

A group of friends are thinking about your hotel as a rendezvous site for the weekend of September 16-18. There are 2-3 couples and a 3 singles. Would you have enough room for all of us? Do you have any rooms with two beds so that singles could share a room, but not a bed? Thank you!
Call the hotel directly for answers to your questions! That's what I did before I went to Catalina Island. I called several times with different questions. They could not be more helpful and knowledgeable. I can't stress enough that the location is the best in Catalina, as is the staff!

Hello. Can I request a room with a view before arriving?

Can we reserve a first floor room? We are seniors. Also, how far is it to walk to a restaurant for dinner?
This is the middle of the off season for them, and when we were there three weeks ago, there were less than 6 rooms rented. We were asked if an upper floor room would be OK, and we took one. I think they'd be happy to take your request, but I'm not sure how many rooms are on the first floor (not nearly as many as on the upper floors). Their phone #s are (310)510-0017.or (310)510-2833. Good luck.

Do you furnish irons and ironing boards for guests? Do you have a restaurant? Do you have a hair salon?
Did not see any in the room. The front desk mat have them on request.

"#303 had a nice view of the bay and casino."
