Ok hotel centrally located to everything

Posted 16-Aug-2014
Pros: Nice location and room was clean
Cons: Bed was ok but pIllows were unsatisfactory. Be able to provide wine glasses at request. Put hair dryers in every room.
Location: Avalon is a small area and everything is close to hotel.
Room was clean but bed comfort needs improvement.Pillows were unsatisfactory. No wine glasses available. Plastic cups only. We were not informed front desk closes down 11:30pm. In am I had to go to hotel next door to obtain hair dryer for my wife. Front desk does not open until 7am. The hotel does a continental breakfast that was decent. Staff was friendly but did not go out of their way to assist us.

Great place!

Posted 25-Jul-2014
Pros: Everything
Location: Zipline
Before you visit Catalina Island it would be worth you time to know what is available. It does NOT have bigger hotel chains. Everything is run on a much smaller scale.This hotel might be smaller but, it is historic with modern updates. My family stayed in two separate rooms and both surpassed my expectations. Bedroom and bathrooms were fantastic: roomy, spacious and clean, with a shower to die for. Staff was excellent. Picked us up promptly and dropped us off when we asked.

Great place to stay in Avalon close to beach

Posted 02-Jul-2014
Pros: Location, room cleanliness and comfort, price
Cons: Nothing
Location: Half block from beach/boardwalk, center of Avalon, one block from the pier and endless water activities
Beautiful, quaint, 1890's hotel with recently renovated rooms. Great location, nice staff, comfortable rooms, great prices. Will definitely seek them out on my next visit.

Close to the beach but too loud!

Posted 21-Jun-2014
We were happy to be so close to the beach here, but between the construction in the hallway right outside our room starting at 6:30am and the deliveries to the Vons store right outside our window, the noise was awful. The staff was friendly. It had a small continental breakfast of bagels, fruit, coffee and juice. The hotel had a old European feel to it but needed some updates (just not outside my door at 6:30 in the morning!) there was no clock in the room--probably so I wouldn't know what time they started working!

Pros: The hotel had a lot of character.
Cons: The only thing that i could say anything bad about was they were doing some renovating and had to turn off the sea water, which the toilet runs off of
Room was clean. Very close to all shops, restaurants and beach. Staff was very nice.

Best Hotel In Catalina

Posted 03-Jun-2014
Largest and cleanest hotel I've stayed in in Catalina. Very friendly staff and great location. Only downside was the walls are pretty thin.
