Just returned from a short getaway in Avalon and stayed for the first time at the Hotel Atwater - and what a wonderful surprise. I chose it because their rates are still very reasonable in season and I was not let down. Even though it is old, it is spotless, welcoming and comfortable. The only reason it did not get 5 stars was because of the size of the bathroom - but that is beyond their control since the hotel was built in the 1920s, i believe. Rooms are adequate size, basically furnished but comfy bed and nice linens. And the inside rooms (they open to an open atrium area, not accessible by guests) are the quietest in Avalon. The staff is wonderful - efficient and friendly, especially bellman Mariano - a smile every time I saw him. He went out of his way to make me feel welcome. Even in the off-season, I will not hesitate to return to the Hotel Atwater.
