We showed up at The Edgewater and were pleasantly surprised by our ocean view suite. The room was much larger than we expected and the location was amazing! We were right on the water and on a portion of the pedestrian only street. We had a sitting patio with large windows that open w/o a screen.

This small second-floor hotel is perfectly centralized in Avalon. The rooms were reasonably priced and came with a galley on the same floor with coffee, muffins, juices, etc. for the morning. Best of all, my companion and I had planned to stay the night but gale-force winds predicted for the next day led to a weather advisory to get off... More

We had the most wonderful stay. Love staying at the Edgewater as it is close to everything shops, restaurants, big green pier and of course the beach. They made sure we were comfortable and always asked if we needed anything. We definitely will be returning to the Edgewater and we always recommend it to our friends who are traveling over... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Edgewater. I was in a beachfront room, the view was amazing. Being right on Front Street was so enjoyable, I was able to watch the activities on the street, the boats, pier and beautiful Casino right there, no binoculars needed! My room had comfortable seating to enjoy the view right in front of... More

The location of the Edgewater is great. Not only can you walk from the dock of the Catalina Express in maybe 5 minutes, but your in the middle of all the restaurants and shops. The front door is between 2 souvenir shops and is a stair case to the 8 rooms that are all located on the 2nd floor. We... More

Had the most amazing family vacation-- and only a short boat ride from Long Brach! Our trip was even more amazing because of the hospitality of the Edgewater staff! The rooms were recently updated with beautiful pictures, flat screen televisions, and ocean inspired colors. A no host breakfast and coffee is included and the adjoining sitting area provided additional space... More

We went over to the island for Labor Day weekend and stayed at the Edgewater again. We've always had a good time there and sure enough we weren't disappointed. I love walking out the front door to the main street and being steps away from the beach! This quaint little hotel is upstairs and secluded which is what we like.... More

The rooms are clean and the extra alcove with a twin is a bonus if traveling with kids. The only window looks out into a cement patio with a small cement patio - so no fresh air flow. Positive is that rooms do not connect directly to another room so it is very quiet. The rooms are clean and very... More
