The best part of the hotel...the box donuts we had for our 'continental' breakfast. Water pressure poor...difficult shower. Toilet flushed 1x per hour max!! Paper thin walls...if you catch my meaning!!! It's an old hotel...what do you expect?

Hotel is very close to the main drag of Catalia which was amazing since we walked everywhere. The hotel is small and older, but that is how it is in Catalina. The room was small, but just what we needed. I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

Older hotel, small room, armoir for closet, hot and cold water faucets in bathroom were reverse twist (counterclockwise for off). Continental breakfast of donuts, muffins, orange juice, and coffee. Staff helpful and pleasant. Wireless access from lobby only, but was never crowded (maybe because we were there off season).

We stayed in Avalon on Sept. 30, right at the beginning of the "off-season". The weather was perfect, and it was not crowded at all. Therefore, we got a good rate on the room ($110.88 for one night) and some special treatment that people might not get in the busy season when there are a lot of people to tend...

That should tell you a bit about Glenmore Plaza. We overheard Jimmy Jr., the owners son, telling some other guests this trivia while we stayed. It is a cute, quirky, OLD hotel. If you want to have some 5-Star, cutting edge, all the frills stay, you should stay at....well, nowhere in Catalina. The hotels are for the most part old...

I would like to remind the readers/travelers that each room/suite at this large victorian independent hotel is unique and the reviews should be written specific to the room that one stayed in. If you are looking for chain corporate-style lodging with matchbox rooms, boring frames prints, and stuffy polyester comforters, this place is NOT for you. This hotel is more...

My family and I stayed the 4th of July 2009 weekend at the Glenmore since our 1st choice hotel was sold out. This hotel looks elegant in the lobby and on brochures, but don't be fooled because the room we stayed in was a DUMP! We paid $350/night (2 night minimum) for a small room that had the following issues:...
