This hotel is adorable! The staff is super friendly and everything is decorated lovely. We had a Harborview king room, while small, was still wonderful. Everything was very clean and looked new. The tile shower even had the on/off knob on the other side of the shower so you didn't get wet while you're waiting for the water to warm...

On a whim and to celebrate a friend's birthday, I booked this hotel at the last minute. I have been to Catalina Island before but never overnight, so I wasn't sure where to stay. There were so many choices. I chose this hotel for the location, the price range, and the reviews. It was a lovely experience and I would...

One reviews hotels in comparison to the surrounding and how well it meets your expectations of the location, this location met all expectations for this sort of resort location.

We loved it, close enough to the pier, but at night was a bit hard with the kids since it was a little bit uphill, but loved the place! Make sure you use the city bus, drives you around the city. The hotel had a small fridge and microwave so it was good to bring snacks and quick stuff to...

We rented a Queen room for our trip to Catalina for Jazztrax. We knew we would be out a lot so a basic room was all we wanted. However, this basic room made it difficult to sleep and shower. Our issues were: 1.) There is no elevator and we stayed on the 3rd floor so carrying luggage upstairs was difficult....

This hotel is very conveniently located in downtown Avalon. It is an older hotel that has been nicely remodeled and updated. Our king bed room was small but very nice. There is no elevator so be prepared for stairs. We stayed two nights and would definitely return on our next visit to Avalon.
