although we only had a brief time to stay and enjoy Santa Catalina Island, we found ourselves in a perfect place to spend an overnight! We were created upon arrival by the innkeeper, Kathleen, who could not have been more welcoming and accommodating! Her extra attention to detail makes a big difference in this choice of lodging, the wine and... More

I cannot say enough about our weekend stay at The Old Turner Inn. My fiancé and I chose Avalon to get married at and were obviously looking for a romantic place to stay. We selected The Old Turner Inn and could not have been more pleased. Our experience started even before our arrival with Kathleen answering all my email questions... More

My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway to Catalina for my birthday...without kids!😊 Because my husband knows me well, he let make all the accommodations. I chose the Old Turner Inn knowing I wanted to stay at a B&B, and after seeing the location and reading all the reviews, it was an easy choice. Kathleen made the whole process... More

I feel a bit of a party pooper after all the glowing reviews, but we both agreed we had stayed in several better B and B's, though the Old Turner Inn is a pleasant place. The coffee they make at 7:30 is barely warm by breakfast. When another guest complained about it, Christa said "I'm doing my best!" the next... More

We recently stayed at the Old Turner Inn for the Catalina Jazz Trax and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Wicker Room at the back of the Inn upstairs. We had a queen bed, a nice bathroom and huge closet. There was wine and appetizers in the afternoon a marvelous cooked breakfast each morning at 9 am. I... More

the Old Turner Inn is just a block off the main drag with its quaint shops, fabulous restaurants and breathtaking views of Avalon Bay and the world famous Casino. Kathleen is so gracious and a great cook too. Breakfasts are plentiful and delicious. We had the Queen room with comfy queen bed, a sun room with a day bed, wicker... More

It was our first trip to Catalina Island and we selected to stay at the Old Turner Inn in Avalon as we have always been pleased with B&Bs on the West Coast. This Inn didn't disappoint us during our 4 nights stay. First, the location was absolutely perfect: five minutes away from the harbor and the many boutiques and dining... More

My husband and I were married on Catalina and stayed at the Old Turner Inn. We stayed in the King's Suite. Kathleen and Christa were wonderful hostesses. Appetizers and breakfast were wonderful. It was the perfect place to start our married life. Being at the Old Turner Inn feels like home and it is what will bring us back to... More

This was our first trip to Avlon during the summer, we normally go in the fall. Just as wonderful as the first time. Krista and Kathleen really make you feel right at home. We stayed in the Wicker Room this time. It was small but very very quite. It was in the low 80's during this trip and the four... More

I chose it, frankly, everything else was booked and very expensive. But it worked out perfectly. It is an old house which has been a small inn for many years. Rooms are small, good light, fans, good shower, comfortable bed, good free wifi. There is a full breakfast at 9 and happy hour in the afternoon. Everyone is friendly and... More
