Our first overnight trip to Calalina and after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor we chose the Avalon Hotel. The hotel is ideally situated about one block of the main street, so it is easy to walk everywhere, but you do not get the noise level that some of the other hotels located on the main street. Laurie, the InnKeeper,...

Our first trip to Catalina Island! What a beautiful location. Before our trip, we literally spent 3 months looking at all the hotels on-line, reading reviews and looking at websites. I actually spoke to a few Innkeepers. Once we arrived on the Island, we spent just a few hours looking at the places we did not pick......The Avalon Hotel was...

First time visit to this incredible island! The Avalon exudes s charming ambiance. Room 301 is the best in the hotel. Private deck with comfy lounge chairs, robes, complimentary water bottles, beach tote and towels. Lovely courtyard where a self served breakfast is offered with koi pond and fire pit. A must stay on the island

The location of this hotel is outstanding. Just a few feet off the main road and quiet, yet in the heart of things. The service was outstanding, the courtyard breakfast was a great way to get the day started, and the condition of the rooms was 1st class. When you book your room they confirm exactly which room you are...

My wife and I have been coming to Catalina Island for the last 30+ years and have stayed at many of the hotels on the island. The Avalon is by far the best. The room, view, staff, continental breakfast, décor and everything was perfect. This is truly a "hidden gem" on the Island. We will definitely be coming back for...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Avalon and would recommend it to anyone planning a trip to the island. The staff went out of their way to help us and the experience is one will repeat on our next trip to California. Jo and Pete, UK.

My husband and i stayed at The Avalon for 3 nights and we had a great stay. The room was big and clean, we had our balcony that we could relax and enjoy the view. Breakfast every morning in the garden with all those birds flying, it was perfect. Would definitly go back.

I surprised my wife with a 3 day getaway to Catalina. All we wanted was a nice, quaint, central little place that we could relax in and explore the city. This hotel hit every mark and exceeded expectations. We loved the room, staff, breakfast, and decor. The complimentary coffee, tea, and snacks were a nice little touch as well. We...
