We arrived on a Wednesday it was peaceful & quiet part of town. Room was ready & well equipped with microwave, kitchenette, Jacuzzi tub & dishes. That way you can walk down to the store & prepare meals instead of having to eat out the entire time you're there. We stayed 3 nights & had no complaints.

As Eva M says, very nice and quaint. Nothing fancy, but full kitchenettes. New flat screen TVs, free WiFi. I did not think it was dirty. I think it may have improved since others stayed there because there have been upgrades--TV, stove, refrigerator. Nice deck to BBQ and hang out. Excellent staff who were very helpful. Room was ready early... More

We enjoyed our stay at Catalina Beach House. It has a cottage like feeling and is very quiet and quaint, just up the hill from the activity. It has a beautifu view of Catalina from the patio that everyone can share, just steps from your room. It has a nice table for two and a lovely bench swing and a... More

This hotel is in a great location that gives you a great view of Avalon on a nice deck. Here is the negative of this place. The rooms have gotta be the smallest rooms I have ever stayed in. Its small for one person at best. Not to mention the TVs are 19" from late 80's early 90's. The rooms... More

HermosaHotel, Director of Sales at Catalina Beach House, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your experience. The rooms in Avalon, in general, are small, as our town in just over two miles large and space is limited. It sounds like you must have booked one of our Value or Standard rooms, which are our smallest. Next time perhaps try one of the Preferred... More

Signed up with a package deal which included several things to do but will stick to the room and staff for the review. The staff serves The Beach House, and the Hermosa Hotel and as for our interactions with the staff they were great and in fairness we did not complain about the items I will be listing because we...

The pictures are deceiving. The size of the room we had with one standard and one king bed and a kitchenette and bathroom with only a stand up shower was smaller than my children's bedroom at home. We could have got over the size had it been clean or safe. My three year old cut her leg on the toilet... More

My family and I recently visited “Catalina Beach House”, we spent 5 nights in rooms 10 and 11, they were located down a flight of stairs in the back of the building. It was what we expected, an older place with small rooms, small bathrooms and little kitchen areas with Clean plates, cups and silverware. TV was very nice, flat... More

My partner and I were looking for a room for $100-150/ night. The Catalina Beach House had a room for $150/ night. To find a room in Avalon at that price during the summer season is quite a challenge. The top floor is a converted boat house that was dragged up the hill after 1900. The rooms are clean. There...

Good and cozy place... Pros: Very close to the beach. Very comfortable. Very friendly. Our room had a Jacuzzi. Cons: Walk uphill for 5 minutes. But for luggage, they provide shuttle service from Hermosa, which is their sister concern. But I feel the price is a bit too much.
