Updated and clean. But room had no views.

what a wonderful place to stay on Catalina Island! Thank you!

The amenities were great & the staff was very friendly & accommodating. The tablet provided was meant to be convenient but ended up a hassle to use.

It was centrally located, rooms were spacious and clean, hotel staff were very helpful.

Although the rooms were a little small, they were well laid out and functional. The hotel was very quiet inside. The place was immaculate. We completely enjoyed our short stay.

Good location and very quiet

Staff was great, and got us into our room early, which was nice. It's about a minute walk from ice cream, and a minute and a half from the beach. Delightful, pretty, and the rooms were small but had everything ya need.

The property was newl6 renovated from what locals told us so the place new and pleasing. There could be more amenities for the hotel since you do get charge a daily hotel fee. They do give you a $20 per day credit but limited since the restaurants you can use it on were mainly closed. There’s no more free bike rentals with the stay.

I was super pleased with the property having booked online and never been to the area before. The location was perfect, the building was beautiful and the room was cozy! I also really loved the little touch's like the sparking wine, meringues, and other perks! Would definitely go again.

The hotel was renovated in 2019 and it looks wonderful. Rooms are modern and clean. Amenities were great: bikes, Descanso Beach vouchers, Morning Bistro, baggage transport from ferry to hotel, etc. Hotel is close to everything but far enough away not to hear noise or foot traffic.

Nicely renovated property in the heart of it all. Clean, comfy, and upscale

The staff was all very welcoming and helpful. I felt like the Covid precautions were well respected but the experience was still warm and inviting. Great style to the hotel with enough historical reference to create a unique environment but modern enough to work for today's needs! Would definitely return!

The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The staff were super helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Nice touches like a wine social hour and bikes available. Central location was a real plus.

Great location! Clean, staff were awesome. Enjoyed the trip

I loved the lobby. The check-in was amazing. I liked the cocktail hour. The beds were comfortable.
