We stayed here for 2 nights! And I was amazed of how welcomed we felt. We usually dont come out of our comfort zone but my boyfriend and I feel very welcomed. The rooms are super nice and cozy! Very clean! From the floor to the ceiling everything looked spotless! The lady who booked our room was very helpful and... More

This is a fabulous affordable place to stay on the island. Roberta was very helpful in directing us to great places to eat and explore and shared the "local's favorites" as well as island history. The rooms were clean and beach chairs and towels were available. The fridge was appreciated. Roberta even mailed my absently mindedly left phone charger to... More

Budget friendly motel has great location about 1 block off the main drag. This made for a quiet stay, with easy access to all the fun! Owner was sweet and very helpful with recommendations and accommodating our toddler. We had a great time. Definitely not a luxury hotel, just basic. Room had fridge and flat screen tv. Lots of plants... More

We spent two nights at the Catalina Lodge. Roberta, the owner, was super helpful in booking our reservation and always got back to me very quickly if she wasn't available to answer the phone. She is often busy working hands-on ... even cleaning the rooms, which are extremely clean. She was very friendly and welcoming, and made good recommendations about... More

I saw how management has the rooms cleaned: by removing the furniture and actually cleaning thoroughly. The hostess is friendly. The location is great. Close to the main street, yet away from the noise. We will definitely return there!

I brought my wife and two little ones to see Catalina overnight and I didn't want to spend a fortune for a bed to sleep on. The owners are great people, family friendly...no pretentious B.S., just affordable lodging with people friendly management. I highly recommend Catalina Lodge on Catalina Island.

This was a great budget-friendly place to stay. Very clean, and well-taken care of. Charming, old-fashioned building and office. Centrally located downtown. The hostess/manager was super friendly and had great tips for places to go/eat etc. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our visit here. The owners/staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean with all regular amenities. It is located a block off the main drag which contributes to it's quietness. Would stay here again!

I wrote once before about the Catalina Lodge but I recently returned to have my wedding/ family reunion there, on Catalina Island. Let me just say out of all the places I had to choose from including the Wrigley Mansion(paid for by my brothers) I choose this place. It is clean, close to all and yes the best priced but... More

My BFF was turning 75 and had never been to Catalina. So we took the Catalina Express (free on her birthday) I printed out all of the hotels in Avalon in price order. The least expensive was Catalina Lodge. I called and made a inquiry, made the reservation, thinking I can always call to cancel. The other hotels were more... More
