We visited Catalina for the first time in June 2011 and our family thoroughly enjoyed the stay. When it came time to planning our 25th anniversary this past May, there wasn’t a second thought. The hotel is a home away from home with the added bonus of Laurie and the staff providing you great guidance and service throughout your stay....

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights the week before Memorial Day. The room was large and very comfortable with a lovely bathroom and comfy robe. Our room overlooked the patio where we had complimentary wine and cheese one night and a superior continental breakfast each morning with the Koi. Laurie and Ken could not have been more...

This hotel was just wonderfully beautiful and homey. The outside courtyard is beautiful, breakfast was a wonderful event! We had 3 rooms on the 3rd floor and they opened up the patio for us. We spent many a lovely evening sitting on the balcony together and watching the ocean. We would all stay there again in a sec!

I can see why this charming boutique hotel is #1 on Trip Advisor. We stayed for two nights prior to the Memorial Day weekend, and this place provided a real retreat to the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. The Craftsman decor really brings an earthy vibe to the place. Look at their photo album and you can see...

The hotel staff is wonderful the location is excellent! This is one of the nicest hotels on Catalina especially for the price! The road it's on Whittley has a lot of golf cart traffic so the rooms off the road can be noisy of your windows and balcony door is open. But really who cares! The place is awesome

My husband, a SoCal native, had never visited Catalina Island so for his Birthday I booked two nights at the Avalon Hotel. What a wonderful choice that was.

My husband and I haven't been to Catalina in about 10 years so we were due for a visit. I checked trip advisor and discovered that The Avalon Hotel was number one. After reading all the reviews and calling for a reservation we decided on room 205. Although 205 didn't have a balcony it was less expensive, a slightly larger...
