All the staff was friendly, accommodating & informative. The hotel was beautifully decorated, we loved the fireplace in the bedroom, It was nice to have tea and breakfast in the lobby. They will hold your luggage if you want more time at the beach!

Our complimentary continental breakfast includes instant oatmeal, scones, mini muffins, fruit and juice. Guests can "grab and go" to start their day's adventure or sit on our... More

The staff is so welcoming and friendly, both when making phone reservations, when arriving, and during my stay. Their prices are very reasonable, especially during the week, which is when I stayed. This is the second year in a row that I've stayed at the beautiful Catalina Island Inn.

Across the hallway, Room 440 is the Family Room with 1-queen, 1-twin, and 1-single bed. The inn does not have an elevator (building was originally built in 1907) but... More
