This is one of the hotels with 24 hr front desk coverage. Clean Room. Nice bedding used. I am guessing the building is circa the 1920's (yes refurbished nicely)so the rooms (at least for the single queen we were in) size (smaller size) reflect this....More

This hotel is not really exceptional in any particular way. The rooms are functional but bare by most hotel standards, and the staff nice enough. Unlike some hotels on the island, there's someone present at the front desk twenty four hours a day, which I...More

Hubby and I spent the night here 6/24. Front desk attendants were very nice. Though we arrived early, and officially check in time was 3:00, we were allowed to check our bags and they sent a text when our room was ready, much earlier than...More

If you understand that Avalon will be pricey for what you get and that these hotels were built a long time ago, then you will think it's good value. We had a family room located on the other side of the hotel on the second...More

Unfortunately no deck at the Atwater, but countless places to sit and look at the water and have a drink. One of our favorite places was Descano Beach, they have a great outdoor bar and you can take your drink out on the... More
