A basic room is quite small, but it is in the original Victorian hotel. Garden suites are in a newer section, or go for the upgraded room. Sound travels and there were some rowdy residents. Friendly staff and perfect period setting for our Art Deco Society weekend. Near the theater and Avalon Ballroom.

Four of us spent one night here in Cottage B which is a 2 bedroom. We were on vacation for a week in Newport Beach. The reviews were very good so we booked it and were not unhappy wiht our choice. Great location. Cottage was clean, a little dark, and very small but for a place to just sleep for... More

Spent one night and was satisfied with the property, the room and the value. Enjoyed the seating area on the 2nd floor balcony. The coffee in the morning was ok but they didn't put it out until 7:45 am. I'd consider staying again the next time I am in Avalon.

Stayed here on my birthday in April for my birthday. 20% off. Quiet and cozy. Nice hot tub. Coffee and donuts in the morning. Nothing fancy over all but very comfortable. You can leave your bags in the lobby before you leave to avoid storge charges. A little bit of a uphill walk from the city but close to everything.

I would NOT plan your trip if you have a handicap. We both had handicaps & it was hard getting up the steps to our room. We didn't use the hotel amenities - it was in another up the hill in another part. The views was GREAT. Could see the harbor . The suites was very roomy.

We stayed at this hotel with family. We booked two rooms. Our room was booked as a Premier Room and our son and his wife and son had a regular room. Our room had a king sized bed. There was WiFi in both of our rooms. In our room, there was a tiny bathroom including a toilet and shower. The... More

This hotel is great. The rooms lack a little... no bath tubs and rather small... maybe the size of a cruise ship room, however, it is still great. The staff at this location in super friendly and helpful. The jacuzzi at the location is pleasant and is typically empty in the late afternoon. Located by the jacuzzi is a quaint... More

We paid $379 for two rooms for one night including 4 roundtrip tickets. I would stay again with that being said I was pretty disappointed in the fact that we had... More
