My fiance and I stayed here for a weekend. I had stayed here before with a couple girlfriends and remembered it being decent. The location is great, just a quick walk to the beachfront with all the shops. The room was very clean and the bed was nice and comfy. It was just very small. We had a queen bed... More

Took our first trip to Catalina Island during spring break and stayed in the lovely Casa Mariquita Hotel. The staff were friendly, courteous, and accommodating, really went above and beyond. Mark picked us up at the boat dock and gave us a tour of Avalon in his golf cart on the way to the hotel. Lauren made great recommendations on... More

We went to Catalina Island to celebrate my husband’s birthday and stayed two nights in this great Spanish style hotel. We stayed in this beautiful penthouse suite with two balconies overlooking the ocean. It was so relaxing sitting on the balcony, drinking wines, and watching the boats coming and going. The hotel has a great location. It is on a... More

My friends and I headed to Catalina, the weekend of March 13th. We stayed two nights at Casa Mariquita. The hotel was about a 10-15 min walk from the pier. We stayed on the 3rd floor in a room at the end of the corridor, next to an open patio. The front desk staff was very nice. They actually have... More

I decided to spend three days on Catalina Island during a two-week solo vacation in Southern California. Not having been there before, I was not sure to expect. The island and particularly the hotel and staff exceeded my expectations. The hotel was easy to find, being a short walk from the ferry terminal (although it is up a hill, which... More

Let me tell you that everything about this place is awesome! Our room was FABULOUS! We stayed in #315. It does not have a view, but it had hardwood floors, an ornate wood king bed and upgraded fancy sink! Will post pictures! It is an uphill walk to get to the place, but it is away from the hustle and... More

Great people, great atmosphere! This place was updated and lovely. We felt right at home. It was close to town, just a block away. We walked from the ferry to the hotel with no problem. Very personable and helpful which always makes the difference in your stay. We would defiantly return here should we go back to Catalina.

Great hotel, and incredible experience! We really loved how close the hotel was to town. Everything was within walking distance, and the updated (and clean) rooms were a welcome change from the ho-hum hotels we've stayed at before. The views of the ocean were unbelievable! It was my wife's birthday weekend, and they left a bottle of champagne in the... More

Very clean and friendly. No frills, but quaint. We enjoyed walking from the boat to our room. It's a few blocks, but an easy walk. There is no elevator, so you will carry your bags upstairs to your room.
