The Old Turner Inn is centrally located, easy walking distance all around Avalon. The breakfasts are wonderful, and provide great fuel for your activities on the island. We stayed in the King Suite which has an air-conditioned enclosed porch adjacent to the nicely appointed room. On fine days you can open the windows and enjoy the sea breezes, and the... More

Christa was the innkeeper when we arrived in catalina. She was a the epitome of a gracious hostess. Even before arriving she gave us useful info on the area and on travel discounts. We arrived before check in but she welcomed us early and we were able to leave off our luggage to begin our vacation. Her breakfasts were wonderful... More

Breakfast was good and the evening wine & appetizers allowed us to relax and meet the other guests. The location was an easy... More

My husband and I spent our anniversary at the Old Turner Inn. We enjoyed it so much we will stay again. It was our first trip to Catalina. We stayed in the smallest of their rooms, the wicker room. It was not too small. It was just right. The bed was comfortable, good closet space, television with DVD player with... More

We spent two nights at The Old Turner Inn and enjoyed everything about it. The room as clean, the bed was comfortable and the location was less than two blocks from the beach and pier which works out perfectly as it is nice and quite at night. Kathleen and Christa were very friendly and cooked the most delightful breakfasts! The... More

Our family of 3 stayed at the Old Turner Inn over Memorial Weekend, probably the busier of the weekends to be on the island. The town was crazy but The Old Turner Inn remained a peaceful getaway from the crowds just a few blocks away. The Inn is conveniently located close to everything you need. Kristy, the Manager,is just a... More

I planned a surprise getaway for my husband who had never been to Catalina before and I chose The Old Turner Inn because it sounded so much more intimate and cozy than a standard hotel. I'm so happy I did. We stayed in the Seashell Room and were very pleased. The room and bathroom were very clean and the king... More

Our family of 3 (parents plus 14 year-old son) wanted to stay in a B&B for a more intimate Avalon visit, and we were encouraged to stay at the Old Turner Inn after reading other TripAdvisor reviews. We weren't disappointed. So many B&B's are commercialized, where the inn owners or family have long-ago checked out and contracted management to an... More

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
