Very few hotels on the Island will allow single night stays on the weekend in summer and, those that will, are generally low end. However, Casa Mariquita was not only willing to book a single night stay, but we found the rooms to be very clean and nicely appointed with cable TV, plush bedding and beautiful hardwood floors. The staff... More

First time family trip to Catalina. We needed to make choice based only on internet information. This hotel turned out to be a great choice. Location is 1 long block from the beach - and the noise. Our room was very clean. Wood floors and furniture looked new. (I think this has resolved some of the negative issues from older... More

Christine and Lauren (staff) went above and beyond their duties to see that our stay there was a pleasurable one. Their hospitality was an A plus!!! The rooms were very clean, the decor had a European feel : ) Location is walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Christine hiked the "stairs" with us ( Lucy and Lisa) as... More

Casa Mariquita has a great package deal with Catalina Express - they are one of the few hotels that offer a weekend package in addition to week day packages! We called ahead to make sure the hotel had storage for our bikes, as we were bringing them over on the ferry. (I highly recommend bringing a bike, if you're considering... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The service in this hotel was fantastic. However, the room was very small. To be fair, I would think most of the rooms on Catalina are small. Ours was on the first floor next to the road and very noisy. The bed was pretty lumpy, but the room was clean. Also, the continental... More

My spouse and I stayed for one night, and we were very pleased. Christine at the front desk was very friendly, helping us store our luggage until check-in time, and offering hiking and other tips for activities in Avalon. The hotel had a outdoorsy, Spanish feel, which fit well for Catalina's outdoor activities. The bed was very comfortable. A couple... More

We really liked our stay at Casa Mariquita. It was an easy walk (about 7 minutes) down to the main street of Avalon. It was nice to walk to our hotel, especially after a big meal and being up the hill a little gave us some very nice views of the water. Enjoyed seeing a cruise ship from our windows... More

I really liked my stayed at the Casa Mariquita Hotel. Perched on a hill about five minutes walking from the water, we had beautiful panoramic views from out room. The room was nicely furnished and recently redecorated, and the hotel has a unique layout which provides many semi-private balconies and nooks to read a book or enjoy the sun and... More

We stayed in rooms 16 and 17 I think they were, each had a king bed and were on the interior so no street noise. We slept very well on nice beds. Staff was friendly and extended our checkout for 40 minutes so we could change clothes after a morning tour and before our ferry ride back to Long Beach.... More
