Amazing. I planned a girls trip with a few of my best friends and after reading comments on tripadvisor I picked this hotel and I am so glad I did. The entire staff is so nice and made us feel so welcome. Thanks for such a wonderful stay.

Spent 2 nights with an all girl get-together in Avalon at the Hotel Vista Del Mar which is centrally located with ocean/beach view and continental breakfast. Be warned that the hotel is located on the second floor above a restaurant and there's no elevator but the staff is more than helpful. Not all rooms have a ocean/beach view, but our...

I spent my bachelorette party there. Since we got such a great deal I want really expecting it to be 5 stars, but boy was I blown away when I walked up the stairs and saw the view then looked down the hallway of heaven. Beautiful plant filled the space with light pouring in from all around. There wasn't a...

I've been wanting to stay at the Vista Del Mar forever and it didn't disappoint. Our room was beautiful -- fireplace, huge tv, room to relax. The staff was professional and efficient. And how can you beat cookies and milk each night? True, Avalon is small. Everything is close. But the Vista Del Mar is on Crescent Avenue right in...

My wife and I calibrated our joint birthdays this year on the island. While in the past we have enjoined the some of the older iconic hotels in Avalon, this trip I was looking a more intimate place with a fireplace and more amenities. The room was sparkling clean and the staff was sweet and helpful. The room was spacious...

Stayed here for 2 days , the Staff were very friendly and waived the $200 room deposit after a debacle with the Catalina Flyer not running and not getting a refund . Would have liked some cheese and ham with bagels at breakfast but this a wonderful hotel with great views location and extremely helpful staff. Highly recommended.

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...
