Staff were very friendly and helpful. Free breakfast was just coffee/juice/danish/bagel. Hotel is an old building without a level floor and carpets are worn & fixtures are old. There is some construction / updating going on currently. No good place for storing or washing SCUBA gear. Nicely located. Wifi was flaky but free. Free shuttle available if you need it....

I was staying in Avalon for a week, working there, so this is not from a tourist viewpoint. I stayed at the Glenmore for a couple of days before moving to a place closer to work. The hotel is in a perfect location. It is right in the middle of everything. The hotel has been in the extended family for...

I took my mom and 6 year old daughter on a 3 day trip to Catalina. We stayed at the Glenmore Plaza hotel. We had an amazing visit. It started off with a wonderful greeting from our shuttle driver Cory, who was very helpful and full of information and tips for our stay. I've never booked a vacation before, so...

Lovely hotel and the best feature was the hotel staff. Seems they are all family and take great pride in making their guest feel welcome and accommodated. We were having a wedding on Jan. 1, 2016 and they were so kind to let us make flowers in a lovely spare room and store them until we needed them. We had...

Conveniently located near everything. It's old and that's fine but it needs some work. The room size was small but adequate, the bathroom was the same. We had a king sized bed, one side was comfortable and the other side was highly uncomfortable. We stayed two nights and both had a turn on that side and both woke up with...

It's the 2d oldest operating hotel in California, so it has historic charm, but at the same time the rooms are renovated, designed with good taste and maintained very well! There is an ac, heater, amazing and spacious shower, big TV, fridge, microwave. The location cannot be better, it's close to everything. The staff is super nice and friendly. They...

These folks are the best. They go above and beyond and are beyond gracious. We've made this an Annual Time for Reflection for our family; did we achieve the previous years goals, and how are we hoping to grow in the future? No better place to accomplish THIS goal by staying at The Glenmore Plaza!!! Many thanks for ANOTHER EPIC...

Jimmy, James and Jack have made our stay for my sweetheart birthday truly remarkable. The Errol Flynn suite is spectacular with top notch bathroom and view of the ocean. The personnel went above and beyond our expectations. I endorse this amazing hotel 100%. Merci!

This hotel was centrally located in Avalon, accessible to all of the attractions. Our room was very small, but the bed was comfortable. The bathroom faucet dripped, which was ironic because of the extreme water conservation strategies that were in effect. Luckily, the sound of drip was drowned out by the room's overhead fan. The shower curtail had mold on...

While the hotel is a bit dated (although we were told they're in the middle of renovations) we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. This hotel is right in the heart of Avalon with some great restaurants, bars, shopping close by. Highly recommend the upgraded room with a deck and 4 person jacuzzi in the room! The staff was very friendly and...
