Visited here for 2 nights in December. What a lovely place to call a home for a few nights. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were large and clean (a little dark) but overall would stay again.

My husband and I needed some special time off on our own after visiting with our children over the Holiday season in San Diego Dec. 2015. This was our first time visiting Avalon. I found this very nice clean QUIET hotel off of the main harbor in Avalon, Casa Mariguita. Yoli, hotel receptionist was very very professional and assisted with... More

When we walked into the room, my husband said "Wow!" Spacious room with a lovely bed that was sooo comfortable! I had hoped for a romantic hotel to surprise him, and Casa Mariquita delivered! Nice central location, about a block back from the beachfront, next to the location of the under-construction new Catalina Island Museum. There is even a small... More

Double rooms on third floor were spacious and well appointed for area and price. Recently redone furnishings were appreciated however the shower and soaps and shampoo could use an upgrade. Town trolley stop was conveniently right outside the door, Von's grocery was just down the street and Front street and restaurants a block away. Very convenient location but beware it... More

Came here for my bday, stayed in the penthouse suite and It was a pleasant experience. With that said. If u come here during summer there is only one AC wall unit in the penthouse and It is in the bedroom. The living room does not have one and It gets hot as hell, especially if u leave the blinds...

Stayed here for only one night on the "first floor". Very clean and well kept rooms. The walkway in front of the room was loud because of the other tenants. I suggest you look into the 300 numbered rooms which some have a nice bay view. There are NO stairs here to get to these floors. The front desk was... More

This was my first time going to Catalina Island and Casa Mariquita Hotel was the best place to stay. We arrived at the hotel about four hours before our check-in time. The front desk employees were so helpful. They allowed us to store away our bags while we walked around until check-in. The room was so nice, spacious, and very... More

The front desk people went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. There were 8 of us, with 3 rooms, and for the most part, we were all comfortable. Rooms were clean and adequate; one suggestion is to improve the lighting, as we couldn't keep the blinds open with people walking by our room frequently. (They have upgraded... More

I know I stay at a lot of expensive hotels these days, and had to laugh at myself that this was the lowest end hotel I had been in a long time...not terrible but a motel 6 vibe. It was July so the summer rate was $300.00 a night so not cheap in my book. It was clean though and... More
