Hotel Avalon is one of those places where you feel at home by just coming in the door. Great location and very comfortable. Fourth floor roof top is a great place to view all of Avalon. We will be back.

A beautiful place to stay and escape reality for a brief period of time. Tha Avalon staff was very flexible and went above and beyond to meet our comfort & needs. Slightly pricy for the space of the room but overall a wonderful place to stay

My boyfriend surprised me for my birthday with a trip to Catalina this past weekend and he could not have chosen a better hotel. From the moment we showed up the staff was all smiles. I have never been to a hotel before where the person that checked you in, was also the person that walked you to your room...

The Avalon Hotel is a craftsman style hotel on the side of the mountain that surrounds the harbor. The majority of the 4,000 year round inhabitants live on this tiny slice of the island. 100 or so live in an isolated harbor on the other side. It is a pricey little island to visit. The hotel's have the advantage on...

We'd never been to Catalina and relied on the generally very positive Trip Advisor reviews to choose the Avalon. We were not disappointed. We had rooms 301 and 101. The higher room had beautiful water views and a wrap around balcony. My daughters loved the free snacks and drinks in the hotel lobby and room mini-fridges. The rooms were no...

This hotel is very nice but not 5 star by any stretch of imagination. The rooms are average 3 star hotel room but when you add the view and the charm of location you can bring it up to a 4 star but no way this is a 5 star place. I have stayed in many small charming 5 star...

We stayed for two nights and had a great time. The location is good. The rooms are comfortable with so many amenities. Comfy robes, spa products, water and snapple in the room refrigerator, beach towels, in room safe. Continental breakfast is in the courtyard and the rooftop patio offers great views of the harbor. An easy walk to anywhere in...

This hotel is amazing. The beds are extremely comfortable, the views are gorgeous, the staff is like family, and it's just steps from the shops and the ocean. If you're looking for somewhere to relax you need to stay here. Also, the bathtub with the bubbles & body scrub is to die for. Don't forget wine & cheese on Friday's!...
