Quaint hotel, older but WONDERFUL! What a pleasant surprise. Clean rooms with character, excellent beds. Some rooms with Jacuzzi tubs. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Friendly, small town feel. Great price too! Highly recommend!

Awesome place, friendly staff, just steps to the water. I went on my honeymoon and they upgraded our room. The room was beautiful, the bed was so comfortable. Close to everything. Wouldn't stay anywhere else!! The staff help was helpful on planning our daily adventures.

The hotel is located in an excellent location. It is right in the middle of Avalon. Close to everything. It has recently been remodeled. Everything is top notch. The rooms are so wonderful. Well appointed, nice linens, super comfortable beds, large flat screen TVs. The large walk-in shower was terrific. Our room was on an upper floor. We had a... More

Stayed here Valentine's weekend. Was picked up in a free shuttle at boat dock. Front desk was accommodating & friendly. Had one of the newer rooms overlooking the street with straight shot view of the casino. Shower was large and had the overhead raintype shower head.

We loved our stay on Catalina Island!! We were greeted with a complimentary shuttle right off the ferry by Jack, he not only picked us up but checked us in at the front desk as well. He was very friendly and very helpful with all of our "tourist" questions. The room was renovated, nice and comfortable. The location was perfect... More

It's a funky old building like all the others on the island. Tilty! Staff was kind and very attentive. Room was small, freshly painted. Linens needed updating. Pillow shams are off putting. Are they fresh? They lie on the pillows behind. Are they washed after every guest? They weren't nice anyway - lose them. Towels were older as well. No... More

I can't speak to the price, since my boyfriend paid for everything on a surprise birthday weekend, but I absolutely adored the room! It was spacious with a little fridge, a microwave and a small table with two chairs. The bathroom had a heating system so that you don't get too cold when you hop out of the shower. The... More

Stayed here for two days in September 2013 for a birthday celebration. I booked the hotel because of the location and price and I was looking for something affordable with two beds.
