So we stayed this past weekend Oct 3-5, 2014. We figured this hotel has so many great reviews- it was going to be a peaceful and positive experience----um.....WRONG!! We booked this hotel a month in advance. It was a pleasant experience. The staff that answered the phones were so awesome and accomodating- especially bc my boyfriend and i were celebrating... More

This hotel is right by the green pier in Avalon, centrally situated, and is right on the water. The lobby area has a great open area that faces the beach. The lobby is up on the 3rd floor with no elevator. Once inside, the hallway of rooms feels like a garden, and is very bright and inviting. We had a... More

We stayed at the Hotel Vista Del Mar for a couple of nights just Labor day. The view from the hotel was spectacular, and the hotel is very well situated. We were steps away from Steve's Steakhouse and the waterfront. We were able to try a number of interesting shops and restaurants, and enjoyed drinks on the water all within... More

First time visiting the island! My fiancé had recently proposed and his 25th birthday was a perfect reason for a romantic getaway. The hotel vista del mar was fabulous! Short walk into downtown from the Express boats. Very clean and well kept bedroom with great decor, makes you feel at ease and relaxed. The hotel staff was polite and friendly... More

I have been staying at the Hotel Vista Del Mar each year for many years. The rooms are lovely and the staff is very friendly. I always enjoy my stay there. They have a continental breakfast in the morning and freshly made cookies in the evening. Yum! Betty C

This hotel is simply lovely. The rooms are off an atrium dotted with cozy chairs to sit in and relax. Even when it is busy and loud out on the boardwalk, this place is a quiet oasis. The friendly staff bends over backwards to be helpful. They booked us a dinner for 6 on a night that seemed like the... More

My husband and I stayed for one night of our vacation. This is a lovely hotel, all staff that we came in contact with were personable and helpful. The room was quite and well appointed. What I appreciated most... is the atrium filled with flowers and plants and the area that you can sit and enjoy breakfast or your nightly... More

My husband, 6 year old daughter and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights to celebrate my birthday. Though it is a very pricey hotel, it was exactly as described in the reviews--right smack dab in the center of town. We had a clean, quiet room with a king size bed and pull out sofa for my daughter.

We decided to do something different this year and end our family vacation to California by spending the night on Catalina Island. We called this hotel in January to book our stay. From that first phone call to our check out, we could not have been... More
