Great location and nice views of the water. That's the good news. The bad news is that the room we were in didn't have hot water one day and only warm water the next day. We were told to run the shower for 10-15 minutes to obtain hot water. This in an area with a strict water conservation policy -... More

Very much enjoyed our stay here December 31st 2015 and January 1st 2016. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Esperanza who checked us in and took care of us every day was incredible. The hotel is very clean and well kept. We loved our room. This is now our first choice for future visits to Avalon.

Traveled to the land of Romance to attend our nephew's wedding and stayed at the Edgewater on the front street. The accommodations were great and will be going back. We liked the staff and service we received. The closeness to the beach and central part of town. Anything we needed was met by the staff when asked. Even though there... More

Went here early in May. So peaceful, beautiful view from the front room. I could sit all day watching the harbor. No wild crazy people at this time of year. I enjoyed visiting with the owner, and appreciated the fact that she said she screens the clientele. Wow, she is more interested in the ambience than the bottom line. I... More

Greetings! Thank you for your return stay at The Edgewater! We are glad you have enjoyed your many visits with us! Yes, due to 2nd stage water rationing on the island and limited water allotment, we try to screen our reservations for double occupancy in our rooms as well as communicate the need for water conservation to our guests.

My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 young children) stayed at the Edgewater for a couple of nights for a mini-vacation, and we loved the hotel. It was small, clean, chic and comfortable and one of the few hotels with an affordable "suite" type option for 4. It was conveniently located just a few steps from the sand. It was... More

This is a hotel where one should stay if looking for that "perfect spot" on the main street of Avalon. The hotel would not have received an average rating from me if it had not been for its wonderful location. After dragging my suitcase up a long flight of stairs, I arrived at the hotel. My room was OK, but... More

The Edgewater is our hotel of choice on Catalina Island. We visited with family and enjoyed staying in both front suites. I enjoy people watching and sitting in our suite's front porch reading a Vanity Fair. It's a groovy time for all! Also go to Steve's for dinner and Maggie's for lunch! See you next month Edgewater!
