Just had a 2-night stay and I thought it was AVERAGE. The biggest thing was the lack of communication. They never told my party about the "free" taxi ride from the dock. We thought the hotel was close to the dock so hauled all our stuff and it turned out to be considerably further than we thought...upon arrival they told... More

We stayed in room 301 for 4 nights, 5 days, ocean view with wrap around balcony. It was a splurge but well worth it. From the moment we entered the room we were stunned by the beautiful views of Avalon bay and the hillsides. You are close enough to enjoy breath taking views but far enough off the main street...

We enjoyed our stay at Avalon. We stayed for 2 nights and that included 2 Catalina Express tickets and a cab voucher, so it turned out to be a really good deal. We had a third floor courtyard view room with a King size bed. I will warn you - no elevators.The room was a nice size, and the bathroom... More

The Avalon Hotel was wonderful and relaxing. The patio area with the koi pond and fire pit made you feel welcome. My twin grandchildren loved feeding the koi each day. The breakfast each morning was ample and yummy. Laurie Sanchez, the innkeeper was most helpful with everything. We hope to return soon! Ann Vogel

My family of 14 just spent a long weekend at The Avalon and were delighted with this excellent hotel. The rooms are great - good sheets and bathrooms and spectacular views. A lovely rooftop gathering place was good for relaxing at the end of the day. Wine and cheese at 4 and a continental breakfast were super perks. We liked... More

We stayed in 306, which has an amazing view of the harbor and the surrounding hillsides. More than that though, the hotel is first class. They take no short cuts and do not scrimp on anything. From providing drinks and popcorn in the room (at no extra charge) to the top shelf toiletries provided in the bathroom. This is not... More

My 16 year old daughter and I stayed here for our mother/daughter get away. I could'nt have picked a better place. We shared a king size bed on the garden side of the hotel which was quiet in the evenings. You could look out the sliding door (though there was no balcony), and still see the ocean. However, if you... More

Not the cheapest hotel but WELL WORTH every penny! This amazing boutique hotel just off the main strip (which is ideal if you want some peace and quite and still want to be near everything.) Our room was spotless clean and probably the most comfortable bed I've ever had in a hotel. The views from our balcony were breathtaking and... More
