It's the 2d oldest operating hotel in California, so it has historic charm, but at the same time the rooms are renovated, designed with good taste and maintained very well! There is an ac, heater, amazing and spacious shower, big TV, fridge, microwave. The location cannot be better, it's close to everything. The staff is super nice and friendly. They...

These folks are the best. They go above and beyond and are beyond gracious. We've made this an Annual Time for Reflection for our family; did we achieve the previous years goals, and how are we hoping to grow in the future? No better place to accomplish THIS goal by staying at The Glenmore Plaza!!! Many thanks for ANOTHER EPIC...

Jimmy, James and Jack have made our stay for my sweetheart birthday truly remarkable. The Errol Flynn suite is spectacular with top notch bathroom and view of the ocean. The personnel went above and beyond our expectations. I endorse this amazing hotel 100%. Merci!

This hotel was centrally located in Avalon, accessible to all of the attractions. Our room was very small, but the bed was comfortable. The bathroom faucet dripped, which was ironic because of the extreme water conservation strategies that were in effect. Luckily, the sound of drip was drowned out by the room's overhead fan. The shower curtail had mold on...

While the hotel is a bit dated (although we were told they're in the middle of renovations) we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. This hotel is right in the heart of Avalon with some great restaurants, bars, shopping close by. Highly recommend the upgraded room with a deck and 4 person jacuzzi in the room! The staff was very friendly and...

The hotel staff was very nice. It's a very old hotel. But, it has been totally refurbished. This hotel gives you all of your basic needs. The only thing that was missing was an alarm clock. We enjoyed the swirl pool bath tub. The breakfast was very simple; but it was sufficient.

WE were upgraded to the best room in the hotel on the fourth floor. It was a spacious suite with an ocean view. we had reserved a junior suite but we received the "Clark Gable" with the bed in a cupola with a three hundred sixty degree view of Avalon. The room was noisy from the bar across the street...

the Glenmore Plaza in Avalon is an old hotel without an elevator. While it's been updated to some degree it still has the old Avalon charm. the location is perfect--in the center of Avalon but off the main street so the noise level is acceptable. the included Continental breakfast, while very modest, was adequate. What makes this hotel stand out...
