    I was only here for one night. I recommend this place for those who aren't going to spend time in their room and really just want a place to sleep at night. This hotel will do in a pinch. It is old and has a lot of history. There was AC in my room with a sitting areas outside my... More

    We stayed here 7/25 for one night and was in for quite a surprise. Firstly, I thought I booked a cottage at the Catalina Boat House, which has more positive reviews than the Hermosa Hotel. I got a confirmation from Hermosa Hotel and called to find out why and it turns out Hermosa Hotel owns Catalina Boat House but that... More

    Hello Christina, We apologize that you had such an unsatisfactory stay with us.

    My wife and I are scuba divers and really like that Hermosa welcomes scuba with a special storage room and showers available after check out. Yes, it is an older hotel with relatively small rooms, but for the price I will always go back. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms clean, and the location is central and close... More

    I bought a Groupon to come to Catalina which included this hotel. The place was really old and run down. I left an expensive pillow there, called, was told it was in the laundry room, then later told it was misplaced. Terrible customer service!

    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.
