My boyfriend and I just had a lovely visit to Hotel Vista Del Mar. The hotel is conviently located on Crescent st, facing the ocean. It's located in the center of the Avalon beach front resturants, shopping, tours, pier, etc I don't think the location gets any better. The hotel does not have a elevator and shares a main staircase...

My girlfriend and I checked in for a two night stay on 4/15/13. The hotel was a wonderful little place on the 3rd floor above Steve's Steakhouse. Perfect location and very nice upgraded rooms were only surpassed by a warm and genuine staff that could not have been nicer. Cookies and milk in the afternoon and solid recommendations from the...

My wife and I just got back from Avalon. We stayed at the Hotel Vista Del Mar. The room and the staff were excellent. The location was great....right on the water in the center of all the attractions. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend it. Would definitely stay here again

Overall our stay was fantastic. Our room was really nice and luxurious. On the terrace the view was great! We loved the warm baked cookies and milk at night and the breakfast was just perfect. The only bad thing I would say is that you could hear a little too well what was going on in the hallway and the...

Celebrated my niece's 21st birthday by getting a suite for the weekend. With a private balcony, fireplace, upgraded and spacious surroundings and a whirlpool bathtub, the weekend was a huge success. The freshly baked cookies delivered to our room each evening and the DVD library were also a big hit. Everyone at the front desk was exceptional. Can't imagine staying...

I believe this hotel only has 15 rooms in total. The hotel is on the third floor, and there is no elevator, so be prepared for the two flights of stairs. In spite of this inconvenience, the concierge was very helpful and accomodating; he came down to street level to help carry the luggage up to our rooms. In the...

Beautiful hotel situated above a restaurant and shops. Large, spacious room with fireplace, sitting area and wetbar. Upgraded amenities. Very helpful front desk staff. Close to everything. Vons Express immediately behind the hotel and a great restaurant the "Lobster Trap", across the street. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the great location, perfect room.

Bf surprised me with a weekend getaway to Catalina Island (1.5 hr boat ride from Orange County). The hotel is right smack in the middle of the island fronting the pier and surrounded by restaurants, shops and water activities. We had room 102, one of the 2 suites in the building facing the water. We had a balcony, living room,...

My wife and I went out to Catalina with another couple for an overnight trip. We got a package deal with the boat ride over there and back included. Let me start out by saying that the Vista Del Mar is in a great location in Avalon. It's right in the middle of everything! The staff was all great from...

Not only is Avalon quaint and cozy, but it wouldn't have been as enjoyable if it weren't for our stay at the Vista Del Mar. We had a blast. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We had the fireplace go out one evening and the lady at the desk came and helped us herself. Between the 3 of us...
