Stayed here June 24 & 25th 2014. Its an older hotel, so I didnt expect it to have all the bells & whistles of a modern hotel. We stayed in the Marilyn Monroe Suite. Very Spacious room, loved the chandelier and the fact that we could open the windows & get fresh air. One of the windows did not have... More

We came for our romantic anniversary, and between the constant construction going on right outside our room and windows, the mediocre continental breakfast and the price, we were not impressed. There is no clock in the room, probably so we wouldn't know what time it was when they started sawing right outside (it was 7am). When the housekeeper came to... More

The Glenmore is a good value. The Marilyn Monroe suite was fun, black chandelier,nicely updated with jacuzzi tub. The staff were nice & rooms clean. The continental breakfast was ok, just enough to get you started. This room faces the street which can be noisey. Easy walking distance to all coffe shops & restaurants.

We arrived at the hotel on February 15th, 2014 for a relaxing romantic night and what we got was the complete opposite. First of all, the room was not ready for check-in. We were told that we would have to wait an hour because the hotel was checking out a lot of rooms (not my problem!!). Secondly, there were no... More

Quaint hotel, older but WONDERFUL! What a pleasant surprise. Clean rooms with character, excellent beds. Some rooms with Jacuzzi tubs. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Friendly, small town feel. Great price too! Highly recommend!

Awesome place, friendly staff, just steps to the water. I went on my honeymoon and they upgraded our room. The room was beautiful, the bed was so comfortable. Close to everything. Wouldn't stay anywhere else!! The staff help was helpful on planning our daily adventures.

The hotel is located in an excellent location. It is right in the middle of Avalon. Close to everything. It has recently been remodeled. Everything is top notch. The rooms are so wonderful. Well appointed, nice linens, super comfortable beds, large flat screen TVs. The large walk-in shower was terrific. Our room was on an upper floor. We had a... More

We loved our stay on Catalina Island!! We were greeted with a complimentary shuttle right off the ferry by Jack, he not only picked us up but checked us in at the front desk as well. He was very friendly and very helpful with all of our "tourist" questions. The room was renovated, nice and comfortable. The location was perfect... More
