Stayed here with a friend for 2 nights on a short getaway. We booked a queen sized room. This small hotel is a short walk up the hill from the main Avalon shopping street. I don't mind a little bit of a walk so this was not an issue, however, if you are dragging lots of luggage or have limited... More

We stayed at the El Terado Terrace in the summer. It was a great value - the room was pleasant and clean and having a full kitchen was wonderful. We'd definitely recommend this hotel to others - that hill is no joke, though.

I was just in Catalina Island and stayed at the El Terado. It was a pleasant stay, my girlfriend and I spent more time in the room than outside doing activities it was an outstanding hotel. Because of the very comfy beds and the sound proof walls we will be staying there again...if you know what I mean;)

I just spent the weekend in Catalina Island with my boyfriend, and stayed at this very nice hotel! Our room had a full size kitchen and a view of the ocean. The manager was very nice and gave us really good recommendations. Next time we go back, we will stay there again

We recently stayed at the El Terado Terrace and had a very pleasant stay! They have really great rooms and very friendly staff. The hotel paid for our taxi ride from the ferry terminal. Hotel is located within 5 minutes from the main strip. We will stay there again.

We enjoyed our stay over Thanksgiving at El Terado Terrace. There are two entrance options, which we discovered and the rear entrance was less steep over all. Had to ask for DVD player, handed us one, needed to have front desk person install, worked fine. The bathrooms are newly remodeled with a huge king size bed and lots of pillows.... More

Great little charming place with newly remodeled rooms and very clean kitchen with everything that I needed. There is a Vons market within a half a mile away to get anything you need. There is a bit of a hill to walk up and down to get to town, but it's short. All of the restaurants, beach, and shops are... More

Great place to stay in Catalina. Just up the hill a little bit from the waterfront (5 minute walk tops). Hotel provides a free (tip not included) taxi ride from the ferry to the property which is great when arriving with luggage. While not overly friendly, the front desk staff was helpful and provided assistance when needed. The room was... More

Nice and comfortable room, gorgeous view. The room was very spacious. The hotel is on a hill so there is a little bit of a climb. But definitely would stay again. We had a great view from our hotel. We liked that it had a kitchenette in it. Made it very convenient having people over.
