The Basics

The Avalon Hotel rests quietly on Catalina Island which is located approximately 22 nautical miles off of the Southern California coast of Long Beach. We offer guests beautiful ocean views, private balconies, and delicious complimentary breakfast each morning. When you’re not relaxing in your guest room or exploring Santa Catalina Island, spend time unwinding on our rooftop patio which yields panoramic views of Avalon and the harbor. It’s the perfect place to sip a cup of coffee or to share a romantic nightcap underneath a starry sky.
