The Edgewater is a small hotel that offers friendly and personalized service. The owner went out of her way to make me feel at home. The hotel is located on the main street of Avalon with easy access to shopping and restaurants. It is an easy walk from the boat. The rooms are clean, quiet, and comfortable. I would definitely...

My fiancee and I stayed at the Edgewater for the weekend and we had a wonderful time. The room was clean and homey and the little kitchen/lobby area was always filled with snacks, fruit and coffee. The managment seems to really care about the comfort of its visitors. The hotel was upstairs, right on main street so we could walk... More

Had an excellent stay at The Edgewater. Small friendly hotel. Love the private feel of it. Stayed in room #2. The ocean view suite provided a lot of value for the dollar for us. We spent much time in the sun room overlooking the water. Room was remodeled, looked new, comfortable bed, very clean and more than spacious enough. Location... More

Rooms #1 & #2 have a view overlooking the harbor. You must understand that you're two doors from a Karaoke bar that closes around midnight on Fri/Sat night. What a Gem in the middle of the tourist area of Catalina. You're easy walking from any/everything.

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and what a nice treat! The owner Barbara sure made us feel welcomed from the minute we got there.

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed their obviously re-furbished rooms. The best elements of the hotel: great linens on the bed; Really nice owner/manager; Bright rooms (even those that are interior without views). The suites are expensive: three rooms gotta walk thru room 1 (bedroom) and room 2 (small TV/lounge) to get to room 3 (small enclosed balcony room... More

I researched for weeks before deciding on the Edgewater. With June-Sept being the busiest time in Catalina, most places require a two night minimum. Not the Edgewater! The innkeep was very accomodating, even being nice enough to reschedule our stay last minute due to a family emergency. I told her our stay was for my husband's Birthday and the room... More
