For the past 7 years, on the first weekend of December, my girlfriends and I have escaped to the quaint beauty of Catalina Island and the exceptional accommodations of the Catalina Island Inn. The property continues to make improvements and never disappoints. Located on Metropole Ave., it is a nice walk from the ferry terminal and central to all Avalon... More

Late fall package deal, one night stay reasonable. Clean, courteous staff, good location. Harbor view somewhat obstructed and noisy ( roof top refrigeration units of grocery store) Central stairs, no elevator could be problem for some. Overall, very nice, old Catalina feel.

Central to all of Avalon (not that anywhere is not central). Close to the harbor and all the restaurants. Stayed in queen room. Would likely upgrade to a larger room with view. Nice clean hotel, friendly staff.
