The room was clean and comfortable. Front desk employee was friendly and helpful. If you have a lot of heavy luggage, you should opt for a taxi ride up the hill to hotel and back to boat later. The walls were pretty thin and the refrigerator made loud noises. I stayed in room 103 which did not have a nice view, but I would definitely stay again if the price was right!

Nice view and love that it was walking distance from everything.

Simple and cozy, relaxing. Nice patio area for cooking out or to just enjoy morning coffee.

Quiet neighborhood with nice view of Avalon. Staff was extremely hospitable and went above and beyond to help make our stay comfortable.

Good location. Fair value. Very clean. Would choose as a place to stay on a return visit.

We loved our stay at El Terado Terrace. The room was clean and very roomy. Great view, too. Loved having a kitchenette in the room. We would have loved having a bathtub, but that is a minor inconvenience. As others have noted, the hotel is up a hill. We didn't mind it, but if you have any mobility issues, it is something to keep in mind. We would recommend this place to others.

Perfect space, clean room, nice staff. I was able to add a second night without any problems. It’s located on top of a steep hill, so the walk up and down might get a little annoying, but aside from that, everything was great.

If you don't have a golf cart, get ready for some exercise because it is quite the uphill walk. That said, nice hotel. Great staff. Room was very nice. Only thing was the air conditioner. We had a very hard time getting the room to a comfortable temp. Would love to stayed longer. Definitely recommend. Hope to stay there again.

Loved the price!! The walk up the hill to the room was good excercise. A bit inconvenient with small children.

The hotel is great, the only thing is the hallway leading to the restroom and restroom walls can use a good wipe.

Very nice hotel, very clean, very friendly staff, and within walking distance to everything.

SUPER charming for the price. extra points for the wild deer outside our windows down below. Beds are cozy and also a nice ocean view. the walk up hill is easy n short. also its super duper quiet.

For almost $600 a night, this place was a joke. I can see spending $250, but we got robbed. Poor reviews on this place should be the only case... especially for the cash spent. COMPLETELY DISSATISFIED.

The hotel was close to where we wanted to be. The taxi from the boat was very helpful! The room was clean and comfortable with a spacious bathroom area. The climb up the hill to the hotel was sometimes difficult on the narrow walkways, but manageable. The info booklet in the room was not up to date, however.

My daughter and I had time to walk up to botanical gardens and had to be at the ferry at 11:15. Checkout was at 10 and we rarely ask for later checkout, but did ask for 11:00. They offered extension until 10:30 but refused to consider 11 at all. When asked if they could hold our 2 carry-ons, they also refused and told us we could have bags sent to ferry for a fee. So we hurried to room at 10:20 and there was someone waiting to make certain we did indeed did leave by 10:30. Very disappointing, felt extremely unfriendly....

In my opinion, Avalon accommodations can be quite pricey and not always the most comfortable. El Terado is roomy, clean, friendly and helpful. It's not right in the middle of town, but for the price and , it's better than all the other places I've stayed on the island.

We had a great stay. We had a great view of the ocean from our room.
