What a delightful hotel. Just off of the beaten path but close enough to everything. A short walk from the ferry or take a golf cart limo. The rooms were beautifully laid out with comforts abound. We love the African mahogany wood that decorated the room and entry door. We stayed in room 301 that faced the harbor and I...

My husband and I stayed here for his birthday.The whole town is so friendly. The hotel's location is great, walking distance to all the small shops and restaurants. Our innkeeper was so helpful with restaurants and activities.I love the gold fish/ koi pond.

We recently stayed at the Avalon for a mini vacation and it was magical. From the cheese and wine on Friday night to the departing breakfast. Lori (the caretaker) was amazing. Super helpful with ideas (if you need any) of what to do to where to eat. It is definitely on our list when we stay on Catalina Island.

Very nice hotel with friendly staff. I was expecting a larger hotel from the website. Hotel is small and quaint. Nice for couples or small groups. Would not recommend for larger groups looking for a party atmosphere as the vibe of the hotel seems pretty relaxed. Very short walk to beach and everything else in Avalon.

My husband and I and our friends stayed just one night at the Avalon Hotel for a quick visit to the island. Our rooms were so comfortable and well-appointed. My husband and I were in room 301 which has an amazing ocean view and a beautiful wrap-around deck with comfortable chairs. Our friends had the room next to us, which...

Avalon Hotel was the choice I made for our tri weekend lodging based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was lovely - really perfect for the weekend. The hotel is close to, but off the main track, so there wasn't noise of revelry in the middle of the night. The rooms are well sound insulated too, so it was quiet and...

Although our room was rather small it was well adorned and adequate. Couldn't bump to another room so we had to go with this. Staff was helpful, courteous, and professional. We would return. This was our first time to Catalina and was to celebrate our second wedding anniversary and our fourth "first date" anniversary.
