“Romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We just returned from a most wonderful stay at the Edgewater Hotel on Catalina Island. Our suite overlooked Avalon Bay from the Casino to Lover's Cove. The room was clean and beautifully decorated for Valentine's Day. It included a refrigerator, small sink and counter top. We spent hours just relaxing in our suite, appetizing, imbibing and enjoying the view. During our two nights stay, we didn't know if the TV worked because we never turned it on. The staff was accommodating and gracious. Would we stay here again? Absolutely!

Not only is this one of the very few hotels that would allow you to stay just one night. They also allow for a very early check-in and if they aren't able to accomodate, they will hold your bags until check-in time so that you can explore the island. The hotel is extremely clean and comfortable. Definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the middle. Avoid the front or back of the hotel because there is a lot of stre...

This is a lovely, charming, quaint hotel in the best location possible when visiting Catalina. Walk out the door and you're on the beach. Extremely clean hotel with a lovely continental breakfast, microwave, frig. Complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas provided. Cute, enclosed patio at the back of the hotel. Wonderful, comfortable beds. The owner and staff are very attentive to your needs. This is also a wonderful hotel for a wedding party, girls week-end away, etc. Location is close to everything on Avelon. Can hardly wait to go back.

Room Tip: They are all lovely rooms. However, the front beach front rooms are incredible!

We just returned from a great weekend stay on Catalina Island. Enjoyed our stay at The Edgewater so much that I wanted to write in about it! We stayed in one of their ocean view suites that has a sweeping view of the entire bay. There is nothing like enjoying the ocean breeze sail through the well appointed suite that includes a sitting room with mini bar, free wireless internet, large flat screen television and extremely comfortable queen size bed complete with a duvet and tasteful bed linens. We awoke each morning to the sound of small waves lapping at the shore below us. This hotel has a relaxed, island, bed and breakfast feel. In fact, they provide a basic help-yourself ,complimentary, coffee and juice bar each morning in the hotel's common area kitchen. A nice boost, before starting out for the day. Everything on the island seems to be in upswing mode these days and The Edgewater is certainly a part of that with their tasteful renovation in a killer location! It is an excellent value and we look forward to a return stay very soon.

This hotel is located in the center of town right at the beach. There are restaurants and shops virtually right at your doorstep. The rooms are clean, modern and well-appointed, and the staff was accommodating and very helpful. We were in one of the two rooms that overlook the beach and beach walk, and recommend one of those if you like to spend time in your hotel room relaxing and watching the activities on the beach and in the Bay. If you're active this hotel is right in the middle of it all, and everything is within a short walking distance. For what this hotel offers at the price it was a great value for us. Did I mention it is in a great location?

Really liked this hotel. Its was very clean and updated.The beds were very comforable and thats all i ask. They held our luggage when we got there and when we left. They have a common area frig and microwave, its nice for left overs. The hotel wasnt busy the time we stayed there and a couple nights we were the only people there which of course we loved. The rooms arent backed up to each other which was great because u dont hear your neighbor. Its located in the middle of town perfect being in the middle of things!!! Its right next a really neat pirate resturant that has entertainment every night. Catalina is a nice place to visit. Two days is perfect for a stay. The beach is very small and very crowded during the summer which is to be expected of course. But all in all ii was a great stay, will stay there next year when we visit again!!!
