Loved the french doors and view of the gully above the hotel. Everything was pristine, super clean and comfortable. The king bed was HUGE and we slept like babies. Would love to come back here for our next Avalon getaway.

Very nice place and well kept by the staff and owners!! Quiet and a couple blocks up on the hill bring your walking shoes. The neighbors leave food and water out for the wildlife so Deer and Ravens are common and close by. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed there this past Friday and the experience couldn't have been better. Ivan, the manager, was super nice and made us feel welcome. Check in was 2:00 pm however they were nice enough to have our room ready by 11am. They even upgraded our room at no extra charge. I plan on coming back very soon. I highly recommend... More

Very nice stay. Clean, spacious, friendly staff. The walk up the hill to this lodging was pretty steep and long. Once we arrived, all was well. We really liked the complete kitchen feature! Very comfortable.

This hotel was just a block or two up from the center of town. Well within walking distance, although it was up a hill. The room nice spacious, big flat screen mounted on the wall. Great for relaxing after a long day of hiking. It has a kitchenette with full complement of appliances, refrigerator, full stove, microwave, cabinets. Nice for... More

As a picking eater, having a kitchen while on vacation is a must for us. The kitchen and bedroom space were very nice and clean. The hotel is in walking distance from everything. Very reasonably priced hotel, will definitely use again.

Nice rooms, very spacious with comfortable beds and furnishings. Wish I could have stayed longer and seen more of the island. Would definitely recommend this hotel to couples who want a nice weekend getaway. Hotel close to shopping and restaurants.

This is a very nice place to stay, the room was very big for a hotel room on the island and it even had a mini kitchen. The bathroom came with the normal hotel amenities. The staff was nice and there is kind of a view when you come out of your front door. The only reason i wouldn't stay... More

I brought my five-year-old son on a mommy and me vacation to Catalina during spring break. Terrado is perfect for families the kitchens are well-equipped for making simple meals, beds are comfy, very clean throughout, and very friendly staff. It felt like a very safe area, especially for kids, and a fairly easy walk about 5 to 10 minutes into... More

Very old hotel that has paper thin walls. You can hear several TV's from other rooms and follow the conversations of your neighbor. The staff is great though especially the maids. Pretty steep walk to the hotel from town. Really trashy homes next to the hotel make it a little strange to leave the room. Very expensive hotel for what... More
