We planned out family getaway last minute and were lucky to get a room at all that could accommodate 2 beds. The location is great, half a block from the beach, with the drug store on one corner and Lloyds candy store on the other corner and a good pizza place right across the street. There is also a bar...

We stayed only 2 nights. There was a King bed with a flat screen TV. We will come back again. Close to everything including the beach. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean. Ice machine just down the hall.

Juan at the front desk was absolutely the best! We arrived around 10am and he both stored our bags and offered to call us as soon as the room was ready. We got our room early and while it is small it was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The showers are very tiny and I feel someone... More

We stayed one night at this hotel for a romantic birthday getaway. The room was small, but clean. The bed was very comfortable. Everything worked fine except that the first hair dryer my wife got only worked for two seconds, then shut off. A new and satisfactory dryer was quickly provided. Staff was very friendly and efficient, held our bags... More

We arrived to Catalina around 10:30am. Our checkin time wasn't until 3pm, but they were very accomodating on letting us keep our baggage there. Then they offered to call us when the room was ready, which is was at about 2pm! Conveniently located. After we dropped off our luggage, we went right next door to a little chinese restaurant for...

We just stayed at the Atwater and had a wonderful experience. The staff is cordial and very responsive. The location is great, you can get anywhere you need to go on foot just steps away. I would have given the hotel 5 stars, but the bath towels were sparse and scratchy and also the showers were lukewarm. I fhtey can... More

We made a last minute reservation, unaware of a pending St. Patrick's Day holiday...and ended up at this hotel......I was pleasantly surprised with service, comfort, ease to downtown and tours, and that we were offered a better room for the price of the King Bed (no view and very small bath)...to ending up with a Queen Bed with view and...

I've stayed at four different hotels for marathon weekend and this is my favorite. It is centrally located, the staff is extremely helpful and friendly, and the pricing is very reasonable. The rooms are on the 2nd or 3rd floor so you will have to climb, but they offer help with the luggage. There were 3 of us and we... More
