Good nice hotel with good service. Only issue we had was beds are a little old and soft. It is a little walk up the hill to get to hotel from main street but very peaceful area once you get up to hotel.

We are staying in condo #111 with two bedrooms and one bathroom upstairs, and a bed, bath, and full kitchen downstairs. (The bed downstairs is in what would be the living room if it were a residence.) It's an older property, but everyone we've met has been more than helpful from check-in, maintenance, & housekeeping. Cons: Wifi is spotty and...

Clean and comfortable room located at the West end of the village. Patio areas with BBQs, seating and tables. Other than a few guests wanting to party well into the night/morning, this hotel offers a nice place to stay while on the island,

Great price for the room. It is a good size with a good size kitchenette. It is a walk up the hill, but not horrible. The Ocean view is just "a view". I liked the opportunity to bbq outside in the patio. It is very clean and quiet. The manager (I believe her name is Erika) was super nice and...

I've been coming to this hotel with my family for 3 years consistently and it always gets better! They continue to make the experience better with great service and very clean and comfortable accommodations! It drives me nuts when some complain because there are no high rises, speedy elevators and a Starbucks on every corner. This is Catalina! The staff...

Great price for a room with 2 good beds and a equipped kitchen. Ocean view as promised. Allowed us early checkin. Clean and very well maintained exterior and interior. If you are visiting Catalina, please remember you are in drought country, do your part.

Overall experience was good. As our room is near the main entrance there were people walking around all day and night which is a little annoying. The beach view was not that good. Service is appreciated.
