I have lived in California all my life, but have never ventured to Catalina. My Husband surprised me with a trip for our fifth wedding anniversary. We had originally book at the Catalina Canyon resort, but became leery with all the poor trip advisor reviews. However we were willing to give them a shot. One of the reviews advised that...

The Avalon hotel is amazing. The staff was very friendly. They knew we were coming for our anniversary and left us a bottle of champagne in our room. The views are great and make for a very romantic setting. My boyfriend ended up proposing last weekend! We loved our experience here.

My husband and I just returned from a 3-day, 2-night stay at the Avalon Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful grounds, rooftop deck, clean and comfortable room, yummy continental breakfast and snacks in the lobby and the amazing hospitality of the staff. It felt like a home away from home. We will definitely be back!

I have been coming over to Catalina and Avalon since I was a small child, more than 50 years. One of the remarkable changes in the last ten years has been the cleaning up of the City of Avalon. The Island Company and the local business owners seem to have found a balance of tidying the streets, encouraging some nice...

Our 2nd stay at the Avalon Hotel, and the outstanding service, amenities, and room condition remains very high. (Consistency) Spent a day at the beach, and the Sun Screen provided with the bath amenities was a welcome surprise. Lorie & Richard were great . . . as usual, along with the entire staff.

In such a small community (Avalon Harbor) it might be taken for granted that every property is well located. That's not the case. The Avalon Hotel is situated far enough from the high density tourist area to enjoy real calm and quiet; a joy when you're sitting on your balcony, or on the fully furnished rooftop, or in the terrific...

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Avalon Hotel. The staff was very friendly and attentive, the rooms were clean and modern, though small. The Friday happy hour was nice, as was the rooftop deck. There were lots of free little niceties (snacks in the lobby, bottled water in the courtyard, continental breakfast); the wifi was also...

We purchased a package deal that included 2 nights and roundtrip Catalina Express ride for 2 people. We can't say enough how worth it this deal ended up - with all the service, amenities, staff.
