    Very adequate and healthy choices. Good selection of fruit and bakery items. Good selection of teas and special coffees. Snacks and kitchen available all day.

    Transportation between Avalon and Two Harbors runs infrequently after September. It was a bit of a headache lining up the return. Would have been nice to know this ahead of time. Seems to be. disconnect between Two Harbors and the Catalina Transport Company

    The atmosphere was very trusting and casual. The facilities were old... not in a run down way, but in a historic way. Very spacious room with old wooden doors and brass fixtures that reminded me of my grandparent's home. Nice patio with an unbeatable view of the harbor and town.

    Nothing. I liked it all.

    Location is awesome. Great views and beautiful old building. Nice and clean. Super comfy, slept very well in comfortable bed with a nice breeze through the windows. Breakfast was good and also came with a view.

    Room location a little noisy, especially also because walls seemed very thin Shuttle could be better organized Very minimal staff available
