My new husband and I came here for our week long Honeymoon in the Queen Suite.This Bed and Breakfast was an excellent place to stay. Kathleen (the hostess) is the sweetest person you can meet, and she has tons of stories to tell. Ask her where the best places to eat are and she'll tell you. Her breakfasts are delicious... More

Although inn is older, the inn keeper is very nice and makes stay pleasant, warm. Daily breakfast, easy walking distance from pier. Bring good shoes, you need to walk everywhere or rent $40/h golf cart, or pay taxi same for few minutes drive. Best to be a high functioning walking person to visit catalina. This place is charming.

I spent three wonderful nights at the Old Turner Inn. The Inn is charming and Kathleen is a gracious hostess. She offered recommendations for restaurants and activities and was more than accommodating to my personal wants. My room had a fireplace, which was a nice touch and warmed the cool evenings. The location is a short walk from the beach,... More

I went here with my girlfriend on a weekend during the off season and chose this place for the excellent reviews. It lived up to expectations, with a very friendly inn keeper Kathleen making the stay extremely pleasant. The inn and room was very cozy and clean. The evening appetizers and wine was a nice touch, and breakfast the next... More

The Old Turner Inn is a beautiful, old-fashioned Bed and Breakfast. We had the place to ourselves (since January is a slow time of year for Catalina) which was great. We worked on a puzzle in the living room, made tea for ourselves, and I played the gorgeous grand-piano which belonged to the owner's grandmother. Before bed, we watched a... More

We stayed 6 days at the Old Turner Inn and it was wonderful. The location is an easy walk from the ferry dock and they are centrally located so easy walking to restaurants and island amenities. Kathleen and Krista were wonderful and they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. The rooms are all nice... More

This is one of the best bed and breakfasts on the west coast! I have visited a lot of b & bs in California and the west. The owners are an important part of the island's history and ambiance. The manager is a delight to be around. I love the food and happy hour. The location is easy walking distance... More

The hosts were lovely, friendly, charming, so helpful. The breakfast they provided was hearty and delicious. The rooms were clean but a little outdated, but it adds to the old-time charm of the inn. They were extremely accommodating especially since it was Memorial Day weekend, and they usually have a policy of a 3- or 4-night minimum. They let us... More

The Proprietor Kathleen and Krista the Hostess were very nice and accommodating. A hot breakfast was provided (coffee, tea, juice, eggs, sausage or bacon, fruit, and muffins). An... More

As first time travelers to Catalina Island, my friend and I needed and received very kind and generous attention from the Proprietor, Kathleen and Krista the Hostess. The Inn is charming, quiet and convenient. The hot breakfast was excellent. We stayed for two nights and enjoyed the wine and cheese hour which gave us a chance to meet and mingle... More
