Thanks Jerry for your review of Catalina Island Inn. We appreciate your comments about our staff and the service you received. We want every guest to have a great lodging experience. Some rooms do tend to be noisier because of their location. . Everything in Avalon is smaller and closer together then other destinations so some ambient noise is the... More

Customer service excellent, rooms small but very clean and comfortable with a terrace to sit outside and enjoy the weather with a glass of wine. Very centric you can walk to all amenities. When we checked in they gave us a passport with coupons which came in very handy as it has good offers for the tours.

Great staff, every person we interacted with was very friendly, courteous and helpful. We arrived hours before check-in and they gladly held our luggage. It was a very quiet and relaxing stay. I also like that they keep tea out pretty much all day.

Thank you M Moreno for your great review of the Catalina Island Inn. Winter is a wonderful time to visit Catalina. The pace is a little slower and the prices are a lot lower. It also gives our outstanding staff a time to really get to know the needs of our guests and help make each visitor’s vacation a special... More

This is a lovely and centrally located place to stay in Avalon. As I am sure everyone mentions, there is no elevator in this hotel, so if that is a problem for you, either book a first floor room or look elsewhere. I purchased a winter package deal that came with a really basic queen room. As soon as I... More

My boyfriend and I have stayed here twice now. We got a great deal on one of their first floor remodeled rooms a while back and it was great with a private outdoor patio.

PROS: Good location of the hotel in center of Avalon, friendly staff. Nice king bed corner room to front of the building CONS: bit noisy in the morning, since facing street (trash pickup). a coffee maker in the room would be nice (to make coffee before breakfast opens at 8am). the shower/toilet is a bit tiny and needs some updating
