I found this hotel online, first thing that attracted me was price. Compared to other hotels on that island, this was the best deal. We were group of 6 and instead of taking multiple rooms we stayed in a room which had 5 beds. We never felt like staying in a hotel, it was just like renting an apartment :)... More

This hotel is very old and not well maintained. The rooms need a good cleaning and a fresh coat of paint. There were cobwebs in our room and boogers in the wall in the bathroom. I can tell the floor wasn't mopped before we arrived by the change left on the floor from the prior guests. It does however sleep... More

A perfectly acceptable, inexpensive option. The small cottage was just what we expected--clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. Nothing fancy, but if you expected fancy you weren't paying attention when you booked. We will be back.

We stayed in a small One bedroom cottage. Unit 42. Very basic no-frills. Floors were dirty, but the remainder of the unit seemed relatively clean. Had to ask for soap and there were no mugs to accommodate the coffee maker- Only plastic cups? I would also recommend that they fix or replace the vertical window blinds-2 of the panels were...

This is one of the more reasonably priced places for a decent sized family to stay on the island. It is nice to have a kitchen and it is near the grocery store. That being said, for what I was told were midweek rates, the beds were horrible. Old and squeaky. I couldn't sleep because I was being poked with... More

Hi Nathan, Our hotel is very convenient and budget friendly, so it is the perfect place to crash after a long day on the island. This is untrue if our guests have an uncomfortable bed!

Cute vintage hotel going up the side of a hill about two blocks from downtown and also the main plaza. Our two bed cottage also had a kitchenette with basics: burner, microwave, sink, plates, glasses, eating ware. Bathroom is small but adequate for medium size folks. Quiet time is 10 pm to 8 am so that kept the noise to... More

Hi John, As we've already responded to this exact review on another website, I'll keep this short and simple. It is uncommon for our guests a lot of these issues, especially the issues with our staff. We are constantly renovating our hotels, so we hope that you give us a chance in the future and see the improvements we've made! More

The Hermosa is the place I take all my scuba students to stay the weekend at. Its inexpensive (for Catalina) and the Staff is extremely helpful. Not a lot of frills but we are there to learn how to dive not spend the entire day/night in the rooms so it fits our budget and needs perfectly. I highly recommend the... More
