Our family booked three rooms for two nights. We had to change two of them after the first night, but there wasn't much improvement. Among the problems, the room on the fourth floor (walk-up) had a broken AC, which was never fixed. The window frame was warped and wouldn't open--or close when daytime 80s turned into nighttime 50s. The rollaway...

The hotel is old, furniture at lobby and in the bedrooms should be replace with new ones. Toilets are old and too small , it is hard to fit on the seat, It got back up several occasions. Stairs are crooked and door in stairwells are dirty and old. They forgot to vacuum our bed and leave extra toilet papers...

My son and I went to Catalina Island and we stayed at the Glenmore plaza. There was a shuttle waiting for us when we arrived off of the Ferry and was there to take us to the Ferry when we checked out. The staff greeted us when we came in and took our baggage up to our room without even...

The Glenmore Plaza Hotel is the second oldest continuously operating hotel in California. The oldest? The Hotel del Coronado. How 'bout that? We would not have known that without Jim's pleasant conversation Saturday afternoon of our weekend stay. The lobby is indeed a nice place to gather and enjoy visiting with other guests or the hotel staff. And we all...

Sure, it's historic - one of the older Victorians in Avalon. Sure, it's right smack in the center of town...convenient to everything. But it's the people that make this place. Every single person we dealt with went above and beyond. And everyone we spoke to who had stayed there the same weekend said the same thing. Starting with the reservation,...

We spent only one night in this lovely old hotel and I was wishing we could stay longer. Jack at the desk was the perfect host. He made us feel important and filled us in on the history of the hotel, as well as going out of his way several times times for special requests we had. The bed was...

The hotel is old - in fact the oldest on the island, but well maintained and clean. Our room was spacious enough with a flat screen tv, jacuzzi tub, coffee pot etc. The bed was comfy and we slept very well. Colleen and both Jims were friendly and helpful. We'll definitely go back.

Cons: No elevators, so we had to literally carry our bags by each step. The so called complimentary breakfast was the WORST! I rarely ever throw away food, but the coffee was nasty and the muffins were so bland and tasteless that I threw them both away immediately. It seemed they put whatever out for us to eat just so...

We usually stay at the Atwater, which is very inexpensive, however we thought we would try something new. Mistake! The room was small and every piece of furniture had something missing. The noise from the nearby bar and garbage collection was incredible. The toilet would not flush properly, I brought this up with staff on Friday morning, nothing was done....
