We didn't complain as it was a... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed at El Terado Terrace over Memorial day weekend and we absolutely loved it. It had a full kitchen, which we were able to make breakfast. The place was within close proximity to the beach and shopping. We will return and stay here again. I also loved that we got complimentary taxi services to and from... More

I picked this place based on it being the cheapest price at the time that I wanted to go to Catalina so I didn't expect much. to my surprise and delight I had a great room. Clean with all the amenities. I didn't use the stove or do much with the kitchen but I sure will next time! Very comfortable... More

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.
