This 1920s hotel is maintained in tip top condition and is located very conveniently for the Avalon traveler. Avalon is an old get-away for the movie stars of the "talkies" days and you will get a feel for the true nature of the vacation that was enjoyed by Hollywood's earliest film stars. The room we stayed in had a peek-a-view of the ocean and the green pleasure pier and was in amazingly good condition. The room wasn't modern day spacious but certainly had enough room for the roll-away bed we requested, the desk, TV, and in addition the very comfortable king size bed. Due to the age of the hotel there is no elevator, but the clerks help with baggage. There is wireless in the rooms as well. The desk clerks were very helpful at all times and helped us arrange tours of the island, undersea tour, movies, golf, and guided us to some favorite restaurants on the island. The package they offer for $50 includes several tours and is a good value.
