The Avalon Hotel is great for a couples weekend. A boutique hotel with top quality amenities. Complimentary drinks and continental breakfast. The linens and soaps are first class. Avalon is a small town and all attractions are in walking distance. The pictures are from the rooftop deck.

Be prepared to be hosted by friendly Laurie/Laurel and to have a cozy breakfast in the garden area. Laurie upgraded our room to the top floor of which was paradise! Wrap around balcony w oceanview. This is an older hotel with lots of character! Words of warning: it's situated up a sloped street and has no elevator. Not for the...

This hotel in just a few minutes from the pier and is on a quiet street. The rooftop and courtyard are an added benefit. We stayed 2 nights and I would recommend it for couples. The only negative is that the rooms are a little small, but this may be the case with most Avalon lodging.

The owners, manager and staff have thought of everything and every detail. The rooms are decorated so nicely with wonderful amenities. Shows pride in ownership.

We were here this last weekend for two nights. This is a lovely hotel and our particular room had a nice view overlooking the harbor. Breakfast came with the night's stay. We ate out in the garden by the koi pond. There were lovely plants and humming birds also.

The city of Avalon is a tiny harbor town with the feel of somewhere in the Adriatic Sea but of course it's 26 miles from Los Angeles. At a glance it's hardly changed in a hundred years and the whole town is meticulously maintained. The Avalon hotel is a picture perfect example of the pride with which the locals keep...
