This hotel has a great sun deck on the roof. IT happened to be about 10 feet from my room. I enjoyed reading while watching the sun come up. Its towards the end of the strip, so its a little more peaceful. I would definitely stay here again. Just be warned, lots of stairs.

close to the center of Avalon

The Front Desk staff were excellent. Kept our bags advised us on breakfast locations, medical assistance, check in at earliest. Very nice people.

Location is great, staff is friendly. Hotel provides beach towels, chairs and bikes! The restaurant Naughty Fox at hotel - great food and drinks! What was not too great was when we checked out, we thought our luggages would stay in hotel and we pick them up when we leave the island via ferry but the hotel told us we would not be able to access luggage until we go to the ferry station. Caught us by surprise but we managed it.

Not good

Beautiful hotel in a prime location near the beach front, and only about a 5-10min walk from the harbor where the Catalina Express docks. They do contactless check-in, so when I arrived, all I had to do was pick-up my key. Staff was very welcoming and acessible. My room was incredibly clean and I had plenty of towels and amenities. The gem of this place though is the rooftop deck; lots of lounge chairs and tables to relax while enjoying a perfect view of the ocean. Many restaurants and shops within walking distance, and if you want to eat-in, the hotel restaurant has take-out option so you can enjoy your meal in your room (or on the deck!). Overall, loved my stay and I have already recommended Bellanca to friends. Would absolutely stay here in the future!

The Bellanca Hotel and their restaurant The Naughty Fox were both awesome! The room was very clean, and the most modern on the island! Plus, the balcony is a great spot to relax and watch the ships come and go.

Bellanca is still under renovations and this was most evident to us when our room lost power on one wall thanks to the construction in the room next door. The room was nice with a super comfy bed, great water pressure in the shower, and a TV. The highlight would have to be the roof top deck and use of the beach cruisers. Not sure why they charged my card $80.. will call in the morning.

Great place. Small room but clean and cozy. Clean facilities, great location, helpful staff.

Room was comfortable. So nice to have the free use of bikes, beach towels and beach chairs. Staff very nice.

Fantastic location. Close to just about everything that might matter to a vacationer.

Rented golf cart to self tour community. Walked to and toured pavilion / casino. Highly recommend. Great restaurants and shopping within easy walking distance.

Excellent for a Catalina getaway. Quiet location at end of the waterfront.

Nice hotel! Beautiful Setting! Close to everything’s! 100 feet or so to the sand! Friendly Staff!

There were 3 couples in our group and we stayed only the one night. We did a lot in the time we had but everyone agreed we could have used another day. We started in San Francisco and ended up in San Diego. We were really impressed with Catalina Island and the Portofino Hotel and will recommend it to our friends in Massachusetts!

Excellent in every way. Staff was friendly, helpful, accommodating. Hotel location was great and sun deck on the roof was incredible. Breakfast pastries provided. Bedding was very comfortable. Loved my stay and I will definitely be back.

Nice location. Nice Italian restaurant is next to the hotel. Complimentary continental breakfast and coffee. The appearance needs a little work. The pathways , steps, and rooftop deck need to be cleaned thoroughly, especially the steps. Using the hose to clean daily, is highly recommended.

Thank you Achsha for this nice review! Glad you enjoyed the room. Every check-in gets an $80 hold (not charge) placed on their credit card for the duration of their stay, which gets released at check-out.
