My fiance definitely did his homework when deciding on where to stay for my surprise trip! The Avalon Hotel was so relaxing with its wonderful spa products, soft robes, lovely balcony/ocean view and complimentry in room snacks. The Supple-pedic bed and pillows were also a nice touch to the room. We stayed in room 306 and it was just nice... More

The Avalon Hotel on Catalina Island is one of those rare finds. From the moment we checked in, the standard for the experience was set. The staff are warm, friendly, and helpful. There are snacks and beverages available as soon as you walk in. At check in, the front desk person actually escorted us to our room and explained everything... More

We chose this hotel based on reviews from Trip Advisor and were so glad we did. We stayed two nights for our 29th wedding anniversary and without a doubt, this was the best weekend getaway we have ever had. The room was emasculate and the staff was great. Due to weather, we could not check out on time. The staff... More

I just returned from a 2 night stay at this lovely hotel. Everything went flawlessly from check-in to check-out. The only minor issue I experienced was not being able to get a taxi to take us to the hotel when we got off the ferry. The hotel looks just like the pictures posted on the website. The hotel has no... More

Summary: IMHO, this is the best hotel you can find on Catalina Island if you're looking for a nice place with enough modern amenities to be very comfortable but you don't plan to spend your entire vacation at Catalina in the hotel. It's very cozy, rooms are modern and nicely furnished, friendly staff, close to town center but not in... More

The Avalon Hotel was amazing and unique in so many ways. Exemplified by the custom light fixtures found throughout the hotel and the beautiful artwork (on the walls and inlaid in the floor), the attention to detail in exceptionally high quality were VERY evident. Also obvious was the staff’s attention to superior guest service. The gentleman who checked me in... More

My wife & I stayed at the Avalon Hotel for 2 nights during our first trip to Catalina Island. The hotel was perfect all around. Modern rooms with great features - flat screen TV & support pillows, etc. Continental breakfast in the garden each morning was very good & relaxing. Everyone working was extremely friendly & helpful, including the owners... More
