My husband and I recently stayed in room 2, the front suit. It was the perfect place to enjoy our first days as newlyweds. The Edgewater is located in the heart of downtown Avalon that allows you to be close to many restaurants, entertainment, and shops located on Crescent Ave. The staff treat you like family, making sure that you...

This is a hotel where one should stay if looking for that "perfect spot" on the main street of Avalon. The hotel would not have received an average rating from me if it had not been for its wonderful location. After dragging my suitcase up a long flight of stairs, I arrived at the hotel. My room was OK, but... More

The Edgewater is our hotel of choice on Catalina Island. We visited with family and enjoyed staying in both front suites. I enjoy people watching and sitting in our suite's front porch reading a Vanity Fair. It's a groovy time for all! Also go to Steve's for dinner and Maggie's for lunch! See you next month Edgewater! Fight On!

I stayed at The Edgewater for my second time over the Fourth of July. The staff were all amazing, helpful, and kind, again. Our room was perfect, again. I learned this trip that they have beach towels and chairs you can borrow, which helps lighten the load we have to carry from the boat. We plan to stay here every... More

The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. In our rush to take an earlier ferry out, I inadvertently left my clothes hanging in the 2nd bedroom closet. Thanks to Esperanza, she discovered the clothes before our ferry disembarked & notified Barbara, the owner. Since we had not met Barbara, she asked Yuri to walk with her down... More

I stayed at the Edgewater and had the best rest of my life. It's in the perfect location to see the beach. I left the windows open and slept to the sounds of the ocean. The decor is the cutest thing ever. I would defiantly recommend staying here for a Catalina visit.

The Edgewater has been my families favorite place to stay for years. The staff is fun and committed to making your stay memorable. The rooms are clean and the views are incredible. I would recommend this place to anyone. Weather it's your first time on the island, or your fiftieth! It's Avalon's best kept secret.

I have now stayed at this hotel multiple times, and am always satisfied with my decision. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the room is always clean, stylish, and quiet.
