The service in this hotel was o.k. , The room was very nice. Our room was on the street Metropole. It was very noisy due to the fact that the golf cart rentals were 75 yards down the street. So after the people rented the carts every single had to pass our room to exit the aera.The bed was fine,... More

We headed to Avalon on a whim for my birthday in June. I needed to find a reasonable price, which seemed to be a major challenge in Avalon! Not only where they very reasonable, but was a very pleasant surprise. The front desk lady must be the owner. She was SO helpful when we arrived very early, giving us a... More

We regularly visit Avalon and have stayed at many of the hotels and most were quite nice but after our last stay at another hotel we were a little wary. That apprehension passed as soon I we entered our room. The room was large and spacious with wood floors, very clean and beautiful. A huge comfortable bed and there is... More

We went over to Catalina Island for 2 days from Hollywood. The hotel was pre booked for us and we weren't sure what to expect. Looking from the outside of the hotel it didn't look as nice but once we saw our room we were amazed at how beautiful it was. Our bed was massive with a TV, the bathroom... More

If you are looking for an affordable option in Avalon, I would highly recommend this hotel. Rates (at least for mid-week when we stayed) were very affordable for Catalina Island for what you get - it is NOT a dump. There are many more hotels in Avalon that are much more money and not as nice. From the reservation process... More

The hotel is very nice looking with good patios. Our room was on the second floor and met our needs for two queen beds. They have a continental breakfast but we didn't bother with it. Overall great hospitality and would stay again.

This was our first time to Avalon so we weren't sure what to expect. The staff went above and beyond to help us. The patio had great views. The room was nice. The hallways were beautiful with all of the plants. Close to the beach and downtown, but quiet. I was sad to leave and if we ever return, I... More

You really don't go to Catalina for the great hotels--it's the magic of the place. This was a decent, clean room with continental breakfast included. Everything in the main area of town is close and compact. Especially on summer weekends, you're not going to find exceptional value in Catalina hotels or restaurants. On islands, everything is expensive. This place is... More

Met our needs just fine, but nothing special. I didn't feel they went out of their way to satisfy their customer. And they charge for beach towel use, what is that!
