This was our first trip to the island. The written directions were a bit confusing. "A few steps past U.S. Bank..." Little did we know there's an ATM a few blocks before you actually hit the bank. Reoriented ourselves and found our way. Check in was easy and our room was cozy. We stayed on the second floor and had... More

Visited Avalon and stayed here for my boyfriend's birthday for 2 nights. Pretty basic hotel but it was clean and staff was friendly. Just a short walk to all the action. Bed was comfortable and sheets smelled nice and fresh! Refrigerator in room. Air conditioning could have been better but did the job. We'd definitely stay here again. They were... More

Went on vacation with my boyfriend to Catalina island. A place I've always wanted to go - it was wonderful. Stayed at the Casa Mariquita hotel, a quaint, beautiful property with tropical foliage and small but clean rooms. There's complimentary continental breakfast and luggage storage if you arrive early or want to hang out before you leave. There's no elevator... More

We stayed here for one night traveling with family. It's a cozy, little, Spanish style hotel with quiet enough location, we had one of the inner rooms and it was pleasant serving well for the purpose. Beds were comfortable and I liked for once not having filthy carpets in the hotel room. Decoration fabrics of the rooms are a bit... More

My boyfriend and I decided after staying here that the hotel was average at best. The hotel was located up the hill on Metropole away from the busy main street so, while the walk up was fine for us, its location on a hill might need to be a consideration for some guests. Our room was clean, and although there... More

I booked a double queen room at Casa Mariquita for myself, hubby and 14 yr old son. The young man at the front desk was entirely accommodating; we were able to check in early which was great. Had we not been able to check into our room, they did have storage room for luggage so we wouldn't have to worry... More

Casa Mariquita After reading all of the positive reviews here, I have to say that mine is far more mixed. There are many little things lacking that could turn a mediocre stay into a fine one. 1) The room. Though basic, the furniture and bedding were attractive and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The room was small (particularly the... More
