It's not often that I don't have a bad thing to say about a hotel, but I can't think of a bad thing to say about the Metropole. The staff was all very pleasant and helpful, the bed was amazingly comfortable, the room was clean and well appointed, the location is great and the continental breakfast was very good. Our... More

For our anniversary weekend, my husband surprised me with a quickie to Catalina! He booked the "helicopter package" which was perfect for, well, a quickie! The hotel metropole was a great location for the walk to the Descanso beach club and the restaurants etc of Avalon. I highly recommend renting the chaise lounges at the beach club and making that...

I had never been to Catalina. Having Moved to LA from Illinois, we don't have islands where I'm from. Maria helped me navigate the ferry and hotel. Stay Was Wonderful. THANK YOU and I'll be coming here again

We reserved this property thru Secret Escapes which was priced at half off. For what we paid it was good. It's nice but very heavily used. The people at the front desk were pleasant and helpfull. They held our bags for us before and after the ferry while waiting. We thought we booked a two doubles room but ended up... More

We loved the European feel of the town and hotel. Everything is walking distance and the townspeople are friendly and welcoming. The hotel has a nice continental breakfast. There is opportunity to meet and chat with other guests and its clean and quiet at night:-) We enjoyed our stay.

I'm not sure what to expect of accommodations on this pretty, fragile island but Hotel Metropole was Meh. We had a fantastic time on the island with other vendors who were incredibly friendly and knowledgable but staff at this hotel are neither. As a guest, you are on your own. I called and emailed several times with questions but the... More

We loved our stay at Hotel Metropole on Catalina. This was our first time here. We had a short walk with our luggage from the ferry. We were able to bell check our luggage when we arrived in the morning. Then we spent the day touring the island, even took a segway tour. We were notified when our room was... More

The Metropole is in the middle of what you want to do in Avalon on Catalina Island. Walk to shops, the Casino/theatre and several golf cart rentals within steps. We rented a golf cart to go up the mountain scenic trail and be sure to go to the Wrigley botanical gardens! Beautiful succulents and what a view on top of... More

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
