I had made reservations far in advance and booked a King Size bed no view room and it was 290.00+ dollars for the night. We arrived ther on the Catalina Flyer at about 10:15 and walked to the hotel which looks like a pink Victorian house. We were informed that checkin was not until 3:09 but we could leave our... More

We decided to spend our 1st marriage anniversary on Catalina Island. We found the St. Lauren online. We fell in love with the pics on the website (room with a view). I called the Hotel to find that particular room was available. Once on the island (Aug 21-23, 2015), we went straight to the hotel to settle ourselves. Once we... More

The staff provided coffee only in the mornings, but the room was comfortable and reasonably priced for Avalon. We had plenty of options for sightseeing and fun restaurants on our two day visit to Catalina Island.

This hotel reminded us of the grand hotel styles in turn of the century San Francisco. The room was very clean and quiet, the bed comfortable and the bath shower was fine. There is a rooftop deck that offers a nice view of the harbor that we enjoyed cocktails on before dinner.

This hotel was a little grimy. Definitely in need of remodel. It was also over priced but it seemed like all of Catalina was. The first words out of the attendants mouth was "your room isn't ready yet". No "hello" or anything after a long journey to get there4. Then, when she looked in to it our room it was... More

We apologize for not meeting your expectations. We have been upgrading and it is a work in progress. The attitude at counter is completely unacceptable and will be dealt with. We hope you will give us another chance next time you visit Catalina. Thank you for taking time to comment as it helps us improve More

The room and bathroom were very clean. The hotel is conveniently located near the center of town and the water. The service is minimal. I could never get the in-room wifi to work over 2 full days. I was a little surprised at how far my lodging dollars did not go for almost $300/night. It was adequate. The one thing... More

A little run down but still nice. Should have the common balcony open until at least 10PM so that you can sit out and enjoy the evening longer. Otherwise it was a nice place to stay. Clean sheets and nice towels. Would stay again

thank you for taking time to write review. We are constantly working on hotel and appreciate the feedback. The reason the upstairs closes at 8 is because we have rooms underneath it we have to be aware of. We look forward to your next visit. More

Spent one night here. Quiet, clean, comfortable. A 4 minute walk to the beach. Front desk helpful and pleasant. Miguel was particularly nice. I would stay here again, no hesitation. Check out the deck on the 6th floor.

First, my most important feature about a place is cleanliness, and the place certainly was! But the furnishings and linens, flooring, etc were very old and unimpressive. They don't serve coffee until 8:30, which doesn't work well for my other who gets a migraine of she doesn't have coffee at 6am, but luckily, she knew this and brought her own... More

Thank you for compliments on cleanliness of hotel. We are working on upgrading furnishings and the like. Coffee is served from 8-10 am. The patio is open from 9am-8pm. The reason for this is there are rooms under the patio. Also appreciate compliments of staff. Hope to see you again. Mark Phelps More
