Came to Avalon with my girlfriend to celebrate our anniversary. We were lucky enough to get one of the ocean view suites, which were all booked last time we were on the island. It was a little extra, but after our stay I would say it is worth every penny. It had a huge private patio where we ended up spending most of our time. The view from the patio was awesome, a panoramic view of the harbor and neighboring hillside. During the day, we ate our meals out on the porch (the room has a full kitchen) and at night we enjoyed some nice wine under the clear night sky. The inside was nice too, it had a flat screen TV (which of course we didn't use), two bedrooms, and a giant massaging showerhead. The only drawback was that you have to climb a huge flight of stairs to get up to the ocean view suite, but you forget about that as soon as you see the view. Service is good, rooms are clean, there's a grocery store next door, there's really not much else to complain about here. If you are going more for an economical vacation, their regular rooms are a great value, I believe the most inexpensive on the island. We started with a regular room before deciding to treat ourselves to the ocean view upgrade. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone seeking a romantic getaway at a greatu value. Also, you should call the office because they have packages that include the boat fare, which will save you some money. Enjoy!
