We had a great time here. The staff is friendly and attentive. I've never stayed at a hotel where I've been greeted every single time I left and returned until here, and we were in and out all day. The room was great, the pillows and mattress were amazing. Very beach like feel. The stairs will give you some exercise...

We stayed for three nights. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was great - garden view. Continental Breakfast in garden courtyard was lovely, Koi pond was nice, along with all of the vegetation and flowers in the courtyard. Friday night wine and cheese was fun, along with all of the snacks available in the lobby. The...

We've had the experience of re-visiting (other) hotels that we used to love, and discovered that corners were cut, or service had been downgraded. It had been a few years since we stayed at the Avalon Hotel, but happily, nothing had changed. The extraordinarily attentive staff, relaxing breakfast in the courtyard, beautifully maintained surroundings and amazing bed, were all exactly...

My wife and I visited for our wedding anniversary. This hotel was a perfect choice for us. The rooms are quiet, and have all the amenities you could ask for. TV, DVD player, A/C, etc. There is a great balcony that affords a view of the harbor and ocean. We spent quite a few hours sitting on the bench swing...

We chose this hotel for the view room and it did not disappoint! We had a wonderful view of the harbor and Laurie, Diane and the rest of the staff were helpful and very friendly. The amenities were top quality and the Friday wine and cheese and daily breakfasts were very welcome. We will absolutely stay here again!

My husband and I previously stayed at The Inn at Mt. Ada, but it was booked the day we wanted to treat an out of state guest to a stay on Catalina Island. Based on the reviews on this site, I choose The Avalon Hotel and we were so pleased with the entire experience. We arrived early on a Sunday...

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
