Great location and nice views of the water. That's the good news. The bad news is that the room we were in didn't have hot water one day and only warm water the next day. We were told to run the shower for 10-15 minutes to obtain hot water. This in an area with a strict water conservation policy -...

We at The Edgewater are glad you enjoyed our great location and beautiful views from the ocean view suite. Sometimes it does take a few minutes to elevate the water temperature. We are sorry you did not contact us until much later about your concerns. We like our hotel guests happy when they stay at The Edgewater. For that reason,...

Very much enjoyed our stay here December 31st 2015 and January 1st 2016. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Esperanza who checked us in and took care of us every day was incredible. The hotel is very clean and well kept. We loved our room. This is now our first choice for future visits to Avalon.

Traveled to the land of Romance to attend our nephew's wedding and stayed at the Edgewater on the front street. The accommodations were great and will be going back.

Went here early in May. So peaceful, beautiful view from the front room. I could sit all day watching the harbor. No wild crazy people at this time of year. I enjoyed visiting with the owner, and appreciated the fact that she said she screens the clientele. Wow, she is more interested in the ambience than the bottom line. I...

Greetings! Thank you for your return stay at The Edgewater! We are glad you have enjoyed your many visits with us!

My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 young children) stayed at the Edgewater for a couple of nights for a mini-vacation, and we loved the hotel. It was small, clean, chic and comfortable and one of the few hotels with an affordable "suite" type option for 4. It was conveniently located just a few steps from the sand. It was...

This is a hotel where one should stay if looking for that "perfect spot" on the main street of Avalon.

My room was OK, but...

The Edgewater is our hotel of choice on Catalina Island. We visited with family and enjoyed staying in both front suites. I enjoy people watching and sitting in our suite's front porch reading a Vanity Fair. It's a groovy time for all! Also go to Steve's for dinner and Maggie's for lunch! See you next month Edgewater!
