We will definitely return to the Catalina Island Inn! Our room had been beautifully remodeled and allowed us privacy with close proximity to the main beach, shops, and restaurants. The staff was helpful and courteous. A wonderful find!

Our thanks for your review and recommendation of the Catalina Island Inn. The hotel's second floor balcony is an "oasis of calm" with seating, water features and town/harbor views. Guests enjoy taking their continental breakfast to the balcony after 9 am or enjoying an evening beverage before dinner out. We offer a clean, comfortable, conveniently located property and a staff... More

Great little place to stay. Room was a little small but we did spend anytime in it. Close to downtown, market next store. The staff is what made the stay there so special, so helpful and friendly. We are for sure going back soon and will be staying at Catalina Inn

This hotel has been recently redecorated. The decor is beautiful and the rooms are kept very clean. I loved having a private patio and a fireplace. The shower was pretty awesome too! The staff was super friendly and very helpful. I would highly recommend staying here!

Thanks for your review. The Catalina Island Inn cares about providing the cleanest and most comfortable accommodations for every guest. We offer a wide range of room options to meet all budgets and needs. Catalina Island Inn has been family owned and operated since 1978. The entire staff works hard to help guests to feel "at home" with us. We... More

My family of four and my mother booked two rooms next to each other. We specifically asked for rooms with air conditioning and found out when we arrived that we did not have it in our rooms, but there are rooms available with it. The hotel was fully booked so we could not change rooms. It was hot at night... More

We have been to Catalina Island several times but have never stayed. This by far was the best place to have stayed. Without a doubt, we will be staying here at our next visit. A++ Excellent customer service and the staff was so helpful, it was a busy weekend and we were able to check in to our room early,... More

We had a great time. The "Inn" was clean, staff was nice, and the services was great. Make sure you ask for a room with air conditioning. I forgot but the box fan they gave was did the trick. I would recommend this place an I would also go back.

Absolute impeccable service! The young gentleman at the front desk was amazing. He did everything to make our stay enjoyable. Always asking if we needed something when he saw us. We were late for the ferry and a cab they called for us did not show they rushed us the the ferry in their golf cart so we would not... More

Luxury King with Harbor View and Balcony Disappointing and not worth the $337.00 in season room rate if you want a view. Website deceiving for their pictures portray a zoomed in look of Harbor View. You see a very distant view of water and harbor from the third floor. These rooms actually overlook a grocery store roof with air conditioning... More

Thanks for your review of the Catalina Island Inn. Our hotel is located 1/2 block from the Avalon harbor. There are buildings between us and the waterfront. These structures are clearly visible in our website balcony photos. The hotel refers to the room you booked as a harbor view, not a beach front unit. Our reservation staff consistently strives to...

Upon our arrival the concierge was very nice and friendly. I lugged the suitcase up the two flights of stairs and entered our room. Thank the Lord we only packed one suitcase for the two of us because that was the tiniest room I've ever seen in my whole life. Ok maybe not the tiniest, I have stayed in NYC... More

We take umbrage to your review remarks ----while still not being sure what the "Catalina syndrome" might mean? Rarely would Catalina be considered in the same way as Paris and New York City. The "je ne sais quoi" of Avalon is it's remote location, small town atmosphere and total uniqueness. The entire downtown area is smaller than the parking lot... More
