Room was small but clean. If you are staying along time I would not stay there but if you are in town for 1-3 nights this place is fine. Breakfast is just coffee, juice and donuts. The lady at the front desk was friendly. They will hold you bags after checkout but beware they are just held in plain view... More

The hotel was picked because of the promotion they advertised if it was your birthday. I booked the hotel with the discount applied and had a confirmation showing the correct total. After I checked out and checked my credit card statement I found the hotel overcharged me and removed the birthday discount. When I called and inquired about it the... More

First off, we couldn't get a hold of anyone to send the shuttle, so paid for a taxi. Upon check in we were told the shuttle cost is the same as a taxi, so that wouldn't have helped anyway, except to save us time. I wasn't informed there wasn't a/c. And the room was a sauna! No breeze and no... More

First time in Catalina and chose Hotel Catalina. Easy to find! We were able to check in early. We stayed at one of the cottages and it was clean and peacful. They serve free continental breakfast and provide free WiFi. After checkout, we were about to leave our luggage there until it was time to board our boat back home.... More

My family of three stayed in a third-floor room with "partial ocean view." The king mattress and pillows were impressive. Because it is not in the center of town, the only unwelcome sounds to slip through the open windows were ship horns and golf carts. When the coffee ran out it was replaced within minutes. When the spa's temperature was... More

We visited here in July 2015 for our anniversary. The room was OK, but the bathroom was extremely small. The sink is out side by the bed. There is no phone nor A/C. The ceiling fan is not over the bed, it is across the room. So it is very warm sleeping. The hotel is located up a nice hill,... More

3-day group vacation for a birthday. Some of us stayed for a few days and others joined us a day-trippers. The hotel was a great meeting point and had room for us to enjoy ourselves on a rare July rainy day. The rooms are older with some new touches - free wifi and flat screen tvs. No air conditioning but... More

I think this hotel was wonderful. Yes its dated but you see that in the pictures before you book so their should be so surprise there! The location is great, each floor has a large shared patio which was so nice to have our free morning coffee and donut on. We were luck and were on the 3rd floor so... More

A basic room is quite small, but it is in the original Victorian hotel. Garden suites are in a newer section, or go for the upgraded room. Sound travels and there were some rowdy residents. Friendly staff and perfect period setting for our Art Deco Society weekend. Near the theater and Avalon Ballroom.
