The hotel staff are very friendly. The family sized room was da decent size but lacked any kind of view. The location and proximity to attractions restaurants and beach was great. A light continental breakfast is served in their foyer.

We had a wedding to attend on Catalina and my boyfriend had found a couple of beautiful and reasonably priced vacation rentals, but for the same reasonable price I found us a room at the Catalina Island Inn and wanted the extra “luxuries” of a hotel — and I’m afraid I don’t feel at all like I got our money’s...

Let me start by saying that I was skeptical about going to Catalina. Mostly because I did not know what to expect. Made my reservation here based on pricing and proximity to the town center. Well it could not gone any better. Yesenia and the staff were very accommodating. From reservation date changes, ease of check in, to the coziness... More

The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Decor is nice. But it lacks hospitality. We rented the room understanding it was a Bed and Breakfast / Inn. The breakfast is rubbish. Luke warm, weak coffee and awful pastries that are a day old. As there are few places in Avalon that service coffee early in the morning we bought Starbucks... More

Thanks for your review of the Catalina Island Inn. The search for early morning coffee is a frequent occurrence. If asked, our staff is happy to direct you to the Catalina Coffee & Cookie Company just around the corner from the hotel. They open at 5 am daily and serve a variety of baked goods and breakfast items. Our complimentary... More

This was our first visit to Catalina Island, so I didn't know what to expect. Took a chance with Catalina Island Inn, and it paid off. Lovely hotel, clean and modern, close to everything. Would definitely stay here again.

I would highly recommend this hotel. From my initial call to book my reservation until I picked up my luggage that the staff let me keep there even after checkout until the boat left, I was PLEASED. The staff was informative, helpful, accommodating, etc., and frankly, I just can't say enough good things about the hotel. I have already given... More

Hello, My husband and I just returned from visiting your inn for 3 days and 3 nights. Wow! The inn was even lovelier in person. The rooms/inn looked just like what we observed online. Last time we visited a "resort" that had everything from a restaurant, pool & spa but the room was so primitive and BLAH! We appreciated everything... More
