The Banning House has it all: beautiful location, wonderful comfort, and fabulous service. I have been to this hotel twice and have recommended it to friends. They share in my satisfaction. Upon each visit, this hotel exceeds my expectations. I feel like royalty and very much enjoy being spoiled. The ambiance is so serene and relaxing that I never want... More

I've been going to this BB/Hotel for a few years now and I've been very impressed over the last two years with the improvements that have been made. It has always been a pleasant kind of get away place, but now, it has been changed into a paradise-like retreat. The continental breakfast has been expanded and is no longer just... More

This beautiful property is the prefect place to relax and unwind. We loved the beautiful room and views, the delicious breakfasts, and the warm welcoming staff. We will definitely be returning! This end of Catalina Island is quieter and has a laid-back vibe. Perfect for hikes, beach combing, volleyball, Frisbee golf, bicycling and water sports. The Banning House Lodge is... More

If you want to get away and really relax, the Banning House Lodge is the place. This was our third visit and it was the best ever. The Banning House staff, Sal and Tyler, are very friendly and helpful. They pick you up at the dock when the Catalina Express comes in and drop you off when you are ready... More

I stayed here for the first time five years ago. There was a wedding party, and only one huge room left in one of the side houses. It was cold and windy, and not very clean, but we decided we'd go back one day because we really liked the place in general. This time we stayed in the main house,... More

The current management, Sal and Tyler are absolutly wonderful and have the lodge running the best I've seen! They cheerfully dote on our group during our stay, which I know isn't an easy... More

My husband and I went to Two Harbors for the first time last weekend thanks to Catalina Express's birthday deal. Two Harbors is a lovely place, very quiet at this time of year, just locals and a couple of other tourists. We stayed in room 1. It was quaint, comfortable, and clean - perfect for our stay! There's ample sitting... More

We stayed in the crows nest & loved the bedding & views from private balcony. Staff was knowledgeable of eagles & activities in area. We would definitely stay again. Felt very welcomed by Tyler as host. Just beware Buccaneer days very rowdy crowd shooting cannons.

After hiking back from parsons landing and not having showered for a few days this was the perfect ending to the perfect weekend on a girls trip. The views were stunning the rooms were so comforting. The employees were sooo nice and drove us up and down to the little village. I would recommend this place to any couples or... More
