This hotel is very nice, right downtown, clean and very friendly. The staff make you feel right at home. The beds are WONDERFUL, I highly reccomend an oceanfront room so you can hear the ocean at night.

We planned to spend one night in Avalon and found a good deal for an upgraded room that included round trip Ferry transfer. The rooms are very nice ... fireplace, wood floors, balconies. (Although our balcony only had a view of the property across the street ... didn't matter as we spent very little time in the room/) The service... More

Stayed at this hotel and had a wonderful experience. The room was outstanding with a magnificent ocean view. Amenities were perfect and the room was spotless. We used the spa and had luxurious massages. The breakfast was just right and I was really pleased to have the option to eat organic fruit and yogurt and to use compostable silverware and... More

Our large suite had a wonderful view, jacuzzi tub, fireplace, modern furniture and stylish decor. However, it can get pretty loud whenever there are lots of vehicles driving by and people walking around on the street. They sent us a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine when we arrived. That was a nice touch. Breakfast was fine- the usual spread of... More

Lovely location right on Front Street facing the beach and harbor. The design was plush and elegant ... the room had fresh flowers and champagne ready for our arrival. Delightful. We arrived by cab covered by hotel voucher - easy. It's possible the hotel should do more to promote this free service as some reviewers have complained, and my reservation... More

What a wonderful time we had at the Hotel Metropole! The room was beautiful and their customer service was wonderful! They had everything ready for us when we arrived. There is a jacuzzi on the fourth floor that overlooks the beach and you can just relax on the beach chairs and enjoy the view from there. They offer wifi which... More

We stayed for an anniversary weekend and splurged on a suite with a Jacuzzi tub, fireplace, and balcony. The Good: This is a lovely hotel. The décor in the rooms is modern and luxurious. The lobby and courtyard are more Mediterranean with pretty fountains. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The Continental breakfast was fine and included the normal... More

We had a very pleasant boat ride from Long Beach to Avalon.It was smooth and fast....one hour.I did not even get seasick at all. When we pulled into Avalon Bay i realized I had sort of forgotten how cute Avalon was....uh, still is. We were able to walk with our rolling luggage the short 10 minute walk around Avalon Harbor...

The hotel was lovely and the location was great. I enjoyed the remodeled decor and it felt fresh and boutique-like. Our room had a fireplace and a jacuzzi tub. Due to the drought, we opted out of using the jacuzzi, but the fire was great. Up top, there is a cozy hot tub that was nice and private. It had... More

just a quick note to say we really enjoyed our weekend stay in September at the Hotel Metropole in Avalon. Easy to find, easy to walk to all the restaurants, beach and attractions in and near downtown Avalon. We especially enjoyed the breakfast bar in the lobby area in the mornings and took the good coffee, juice and muffins and... More
