Reading some of the reviews on here as well as yelp, we were a little hesitant just because of the variety of reviews. But before arriving, we had issues scheduling our boat ride with the Catalina Flyer. I had scheduled back in early May for our end of July visit, and when I called to confirm they stated they didn't... More

This hotel is at the quiet are of the island. Clean, comfortable, and friendly staff. Little bit far from center and the uphill road can be challenging for carrying large luggage (better to take taxi there, but can walk back to beach easily).

Our room had a kitchenette, and king sized bed. Very nice, quiet, clean. Two outdoor patios, gas barbecue. Vons nearby. Very good value. There is a fairly steep walk up from the beach, but there is complimentary taxi from the boat landing to the hotel. The hotel does not have after checkout luggage storage but there is a convenient pickup... More

Nice and clean hotel. We stayed in the two bedroom townhouse. Upon entering there is a bed where perhaps a sofa or couch would be expected, so there are three double beds total. The rooms were roomy and bright. The upstairs shower stall is much smaller than downstairs. The kitchen was large enough and was adequately supplied with basic utensils,... More

Nice hotel. You get what you pay for. Beds where fine if you slept by yourself. Kitchen was nice.We got locked out twice from our room, the walls are very thin. The guy that cleaned our room didnt clean the dishes and floor. I will pay more to stay at an updated hotel that is closer to the action.

This is a very nice hotel! Our room had a full kitchen, a nice view of the bay, and a very comfortable king bed. There is a Von's close by if you want to cook in or use the barbecues provided. After reviewing many other properties in Avalon, we opted for El Terado for the value and the features of... More

Large clean room with a full kitchen, large bathroom with a small shower and no tub. The room also had a small table and chairs/in a dining nook style. The reason I didn't rate it higher is there was no reading chair or sofa. I had to read or use iPad in bed and it wasn't very comfortable. The wooden... More

This is a Motel 6, Budget in type of place. If you expect anything more you will be disappointed. Although on the lower end,the room was clean and staff were very friendly, allowed us early check in, Rm 110. The sink had hot water but the shower did not. NO HOT SHOWER WATER. We didn't complain as it was a... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed at El Terado Terrace over Memorial day weekend and we absolutely loved it. It had a full kitchen, which we were able to make breakfast. The place was within close proximity to the beach and shopping. We will return and stay here again. I also loved that we got complimentary taxi services to and from... More
