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.

Four of us spent one night here in Cottage B which is a 2 bedroom. We were on vacation for a week in Newport Beach. The reviews were very good so we booked it and were not unhappy wiht our choice. Great location. Cottage was clean, a little dark, and very small but for a place to just sleep for... More

Spent one night and was satisfied with the property, the room and the value. Enjoyed the seating area on the 2nd floor balcony. The coffee in the morning was ok but they didn't put it out until 7:45 am. I'd consider staying again the next time I am in Avalon.

Stayed here on my birthday in April for my birthday. 20% off. Quiet and cozy. Nice hot tub. Coffee and donuts in the morning. Nothing fancy over all but very comfortable. You can leave your bags in the lobby before you leave to avoid storge charges. A little bit of a uphill walk from the city but close to everything.
