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.

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

My daughter and her two teenagers and I stayed here in June 2014. We had two adjacent rooms, which worked out well. The rooms are small but comfortable. They probably have the most comfortable beds I have ever experienced in a hotel. And what a great staff they have! Everyone was so cheerful and helpful. There is a secluded patio,... More

We had a great stay from start to finish. My wife and I highly recommend this hotel. The staff was unbelievable. The location was just off the Main Street which makes it quieter and more enjoyable. We will definitely be back. The Ming's.

We stayed at the Avalon Hotel in June 2014. It is a marvelous hotel! The rooms are little small, so we decided to rent two rooms as we were traveling with our two teenagers. This worked out great. We purchased a package deal which also included the round trip ferry from Long Beach and taxi transfers to the hotel from... More
