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

I surprised my wife with a trip to Catalina Island for our 35th wedding anniversary, so I wanted the experience to be great. The folks at the Avalon Hotel really made that happen. From the complimentary bottle of champagne for our anniversary to the assistance we received in getting our luggage up and down the stairs (no elevator), the staff... More

Sherry and I found the Avalon Hotel on line and booked it for two nights. First night, our anniversary was complemented with a bottle of fine wine. Second night we were upgraded to room 301, the best in the Hotel. The rooms have been remodeled in African mahogany and are truly beautiful. Excellent view of harbor and close to activities... More

In July 2014 a friend and I spent a wonderful 3 days and nights at the Avalon. We enjoyed a fresh and delicious breakfast on the patio each day and made new acquaintances from all over the country. Laurie, the manager, could not have been more helpful or more wonderful in making us feel welcome and and comfortable. She even... More
