My husband and I stayed here for 2 days last weekend. It was the best hotel experience we've every had. So many little touches made this trip one we'll remember. Complimentary snacks, water and Snapple in the frig, and it was decorated very nicely for Halloween. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and also stay here again.

Have been attending the Catalina Island Jazz Festival for several years. Just spent the first weekend in the Avalon Hotel and found it to be amazing… already booked the same room for next year. Amazing touches provided like water in the refrigerator every day, beach bag in the closet, NICEST people ever… THANK YOU Avalon Hotel for a perfect weekend!

Just got back from a weekend visit to Catalina Island and stayed at the Avalon Hotel for the 1st time. After trying 3 other hotels on the Island, we finally found the one! Perks: Vouchers for Taxi from dock to hotel. Warm, friendly Inn keepers. Craftsman style through out. Baskets of goodies in Lobby (trail mix, cookies, etc.) Nice complementary... More

We always enjoy staying at this hotel. Is it the Ritz? No, but it is the best value for a hotel, on the water in Avalon. Crescent ends where Whittley begins. I have had open heart and my wife has had strokes, hemorrhages and copd (even though she has never smoked) and we have no problem walking from the Catalina... More

We spent our anniversary in Catalina this year. The Avalon hotel was a great place to stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. They give you breakfast, snacks, snapple, there's a Keurig Coffee maker in the lobby and wine tastings. The rooftop is a lovely place to bring a bottle of wine and watch the harbor. Our room was comfortable... More

My Wife Linda and I toured Pacific Coast Aug 2014 for her very special birthday. This Hotel has exceptional Staff, Rooms are modern, clean and have all the amenities. The view from the balcony of our room 302 was great but from the ROOFTOP LOUNGE AREA it was fantastic! Book early. We plan to go back in 2015

Wonderful time at this comfortable hotel for our fist Catalina trip. Spending time on the Rooftop is a must! Breakfast in the garden is very nice. Rooms big and comfortable. We were on the street side and there was some noise during the nights and early mornings but we did keep our windows and slider open. Would definitely return.

My fiancé and I stayed at the Avalon Hotel while visiting Catalina Island. The staff was warm and friendly and more than happy to assist us with any questions we had about things to do and where to do them! I even received a very delicious bottle of champagne for my birthday! I would definitely recommend this hotel! Also the... More

My husband and I went to Catalina to celebrate our birthdays in July 2013. It was our first trip to Catalina and Laurie helped make it even more memorable. She was so friendly, accommodating, and helpful. After a day of hiking, walking around town, and enjoying the restaurants it was wonderful to relax at the hotel. The morning breakfast on... More

Just came back from 2 nights at The Avalon Hotel (8/18/14 - 8/20/14) and our first trip to Catalina Island and California. Great location, quaint, quiet, friendly! The only negative is the hotel is on a hill, as so many are as well, and steps to climb to get to the entrance from the street and we carried our luggage... More
