We had a wonderful first visit to Avalon Hotel. We were surprised by a up grade in our room with beautiful wrap around views room 301. The staff was so nice, always ready too chat or help out.

My daughter and I visited Catalina Island last weekend and had a wonderful time! We stayed at the Avalon Hotel on Whittley Street in room 102. The accommodations were perfect. From the comfy bed and robes to the continental breakfast, everything was wonderful! We had a balcony with partial ocean views....all you had to do was walk out and look...

My boyfriend gave me a trip to Catalina for the weekend as a Xmas present. He chose a weekend in July, flew us over by helicopter and then booked the best room at The Avalon Hotel, 301. It has a wrap around balcony with an amazing view of the harbor and casino. The hotel staff was amazing, helpful and extremely...

Just had a 2-night stay and I thought it was AVERAGE. The biggest thing was the lack of communication. They never told my party about the "free" taxi ride from the dock. We thought the hotel was close to the dock so hauled all our stuff and it turned out to be considerably further than we thought...upon arrival they told...

We stayed in room 301 for 4 nights, 5 days, ocean view with wrap around balcony. It was a splurge but well worth it. From the moment we entered the room we were stunned by the beautiful views of Avalon bay and the hillsides. You are close enough to enjoy breath taking views but far enough off the main street...

The Avalon Hotel was wonderful and relaxing. The patio area with the koi pond and fire pit made you feel welcome. My twin grandchildren loved feeding the koi each day. The breakfast each morning was ample and yummy. Laurie Sanchez, the innkeeper was most helpful with everything. We hope to return soon! Ann Vogel
