We made our annual visit to the Inn on Mt. Ada. Michael was there to pick us up, he's like the Brother I never had, what fun! Marlene was there to greet us, welcoming us with open arms and big hugs, it's like homecoming. This Inn is more than a place to stay, it is family, comfort food galore, a... More

We have been coming to Catalina boating and on vacation for many years and always liked to be in town. A few months ago the highly rated hotel by the pier we were booked at was horribly noisy and we found there was a room available at the inn at Mt Ada. We are here right now for the second... More

Splurged for a 3 night stay in the Grand Suite for our 20th wedding anniverary spring 2013. Do not regret it at all. The room has a private balcony with stunning views of the harbor (although we did have some really foggy mornings which spoiled our breakfast views). This Inn was restored by the current Inn Keepers and they did... More

What a lovely place to get away, especially if you live in Southern California. With no flight or long drive, just an hour on a smooth sailing boat and you arrive ready to be treated like honored guests! The rooms are lovely, the food excellent, the staff couldn't be nicer and then there's the view... We had plans to do... More

This is the old Wrigley Mansion, and, unless a contract with the University of Southern California can be worked out, will not be available in 1 and 1/2 years. So to be safe, go now. The setting couldn't be more beautiful -- on a hill overlooking the town of Avalon, the cove and the Pacific Ocean -- and the interior... More

What's not to love about this place? Spectacular location, devoted staff, terrific breakfasts and lunches, very limited number of guests and everything included-Your personal golf cart, snacks and banana splits 24/7. Don't miss the pet cemetery halfway down the road into Avalon with grave markers including "Will-you were a great fish" and "Hamzilla-2000-2002 ,devoted husband, father of 16." and his... More

The Inn is the only place to stay when visiting Avalon! Everything at the Inn is exceptional! However, it’s the hospitality that keeps us coming back! Everyone at the Inn is genuinely happy to see us and makes us feel like family. The Inn is truly our home during our stay. We’ve stayed at the Inn many times through the... More

All of the other reviews of the Inn on Mt. Ada say it all - beautiful home, gracious innkeepers, delightful staff, excellent location and views beyond compare. There is really nothing more to add except this - staying at the Inn on Mt. Ada just made us happy. We felt very good about life for the 3 days and 2... More

I don't think I can add anymore or any different accolades than what has already been said about this most perfect inn on Catalina. What I can say is that it's the people who work at the inn that really make it a special place. Marlene, Deanna, Catherine and Carol made our stay so perfect we will never stay anyplace... More

When contemplating a special place to go for my 50th birthday, my partner and I chose to spend a night on Catalina Island and stay at the Inn on Mt. Ada, in part because of the spectacular Trip Advisor reviews. To put it mildly, expectations were exceeded. It's like staying at a rich relative's house, whom you really like. The... More
