Close walking distance to everything in Avalon

This is an older hotel with no elevator, but has a good location, friendly staff and comfortable beds. I would stay here again

We loved Hotel Catalina from check-in to check-out. The staff was friendly, our cottage was roomy and clean, and the location was fantastic. We will be back!

Very charming, quiet location just off the beach. We had a cute, small 3rd floor room with great views and ocean breezes. Very kind and helpful staff. Highly recommend! Can't wait to be back.

The hotel's location was very convenient with regards to the port. You could walk with your luggage and won't need any taxi/golf carts. It was situated very close to shops, restaurants, and the beach. The hotel was very clean and quiet. Although we did not need any extra service, there was always someone at the reception desk to answer questions and/or provide extra sundries.

The building is vintage and the rooms are furnished with antique furniture. With its older charm, the heating and cooling are not guaranteed, and plumbing can be iffy. My favorite part of this hotel was the huge porch just outside our room; it was perfect for morning coffee or afternoon cocktails. The staff was wonderful!

We stayed in the honeymoon cottage. Super cute old Victorian style. The have a jacuzzi out front. It was close to everything. We were there for Jazz Trax

The property needs upgrading. The shower handles were missing and the ceiling fan light would come on randomly. Not bad for an old building. Room was very small for a queen size bed.

Great location and friendly staff!! The hotel was very charming.

We like the hotel because it was quaint we like the balcony area we like the fact that it was close to downtown. The staff is very friendly.

The location of the property is excellent! Located a 2 minute walk from the Main Street of all the restaurants and gift shops. The room was great and the free coffee, tea and donuts in the morning was a nice add on.

Great hotel easy to get to from the Catalina Express port. The room is exactly what you need for catalina a place to sleep and get rest. You shouldnt be staying in you room at Catalina Isalnd. The staff is great and more than friendly. After you check out they have lockers so you can have you luggage in a private secure locker.

It was an old hotel. Everything works but the room was small and the bed not too comfortable.
