Reasonably priced accommodations in a high-rent location, just steps from Avalon's beach.. The Scene For budget-minded island hoppers (budget being relative---think of this in comparison to the Ritz, not a Travel Lodge), this hotel sits in a prime location just steps from the beach. Guests are welcomed into a casual, intimate, tropically influenced lobby, complete with an inlaid wood compass on the floor, rowing oars on the walls and comfy rattan furnishings.
The Details Each of the slightly outdated guest rooms, as well as the two-room suites, open onto spacious balconies awash in the invigorating Catalina sea air ... the picturesque harbor views aren't too shabby, either. Shops, cafés and the harbor are just a half a block away, and the staff is well-versed in island bests, from kayaking and wildlife viewing to golfing and the best restaurants.
