The Glenmore Plaza Hotel is the second oldest continuously operating hotel in California. The oldest? The Hotel del Coronado. How 'bout that? We would not have known that without Jim's pleasant conversation Saturday afternoon of our weekend stay. The lobby is indeed a nice place to gather and enjoy visiting with other guests or the hotel staff. And we all... More

Sure, it's historic - one of the older Victorians in Avalon. Sure, it's right smack in the center of town...convenient to everything. But it's the people that make this place. Every single person we dealt with went above and beyond. And everyone we spoke to who had stayed there the same weekend said the same thing. Starting with the reservation,... More

We spent only one night in this lovely old hotel and I was wishing we could stay longer. Jack at the desk was the perfect host. He made us feel important and filled us in on the history of the hotel, as well as going out of his way several times times for special requests we had. The bed was... More

The hotel is old - in fact the oldest on the island, but well maintained and clean. Our room was spacious enough with a flat screen tv, jacuzzi tub, coffee pot etc. The bed was comfy and we slept very well. Colleen and both Jims were friendly and helpful. We'll definitely go back.

Cons: No elevators, so we had to literally carry our bags by each step. The so called complimentary breakfast was the WORST! I rarely ever throw away food, but the coffee was nasty and the muffins were so bland and tasteless that I threw them both away immediately. It seemed they put whatever out for us to eat just so...

We usually stay at the Atwater, which is very inexpensive, however we thought we would try something new. Mistake! The room was small and every piece of furniture had something missing. The noise from the nearby bar and garbage collection was incredible. The toilet would not flush properly, I brought this up with staff on Friday morning, nothing was done.... More

We stayed and the room was fairly clean, nothing great. Decent bathroom-clean but again not some great place. Just a place to sleep

First of all everyone was friendly and very helpful. My only negative on this place was we were put up on the fourth floor and there is no elevator. I counted 58 steps up and 58 down. Wouldnt be so bad if we were youngins. After a day of walking,it was a little slow going up. So if you dont... More

I have stayed at the Glenmore many times in the past 15 years, and it has always been a great experience. This Saturday my outrigger team is racing over there from Newport, 31 miles! I booked a room today with their friendly and helpful staff and am looking forward to sleeping in the cozy beds after a long day.

I called the hotel and every other hotel on the island. My husband and I both spoke to a gentleman over the phone and assured us that if we didnt like the room or had a problem he could show us a room a little more expensive yet competely worth it. We arrived for the first time together and he... More
