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

This boutique hotel is owner managed and it shows. Great care was taken in the design and construction of this small hotel. This close attention to detail carries through to current daily operations. The rooms are spotless and staff keeps all facilities in perfect order. A generous breakfast buffet is laid out in the mornings and complimentary snacks are offered... More

Beautiful hotel. We enjoyed continental breakfast in the garden with the koi and the multitude of hummingbirds. The rooftop deck is beautiful. They have a wine and cheese gathering on Fridays which we enjoyed as well.

We spent three nights in this hotel. Our room, #306, featured a private balcony with a wonderful and full view of the bay. There is also a common balcony one floor up with excellent views. The room was rather small but was equipped with a desk and refrigerator. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. In-room Wi-Fi was included... More

My fiancé and I stayed at the Avalon July 2014. We loved this hotel. From the peach tea in the lobby and body butter and lotions in our restroom - it was those little extras that went a long way. We loved having breakfast out on the patio - so quiet and peaceful - away from the hustle and bustle... More
