NEVER NEVER EVER stay at The Catalina. They must be under new management b/c I did not have these problems a year ago when I stayed here. I booked this hotel through my company (I work for an incentive travel company in Hollywood, FL). MAJOR PROBLEMS: - did not have my reservation when checking in. - took 3 hours and... More

This hotel is definately not as nice as some of the other hotels in the area. We were extremely distgusted by the shagg carpets in the hallways. Every day we were there it seemed as though someone had puked in the hall. The smell was unbearable. The rooms were very small. Some people didn't have air conditioning in their rooms... More

I will never use Expedia again to book a hotel. We just came back from Miami and agree with all the negative reviews. The staff is extremely rude but I think it is because of the language barrier, they didn't understand a word I was saying. The shag carpets were horrible, but worse in the Miami heat, our room air...

Honestly, I have never felt compelled to write a review before staying at the Catalina. It was just plain nasty. The staff was incredibly rude and reminded me of the cartoon-esk characters that work at Mode magazine in the show "Ugly Betty" . They were so snotty that I thought it was actually part of an act. Aldo at the... More

THE START: My friends and I came for a long weekend our first time in Miami. So we were waiting for the shuttle and kept calling the hotel to check on the time it arrived. We saw it pass us!! My friend had to chase it down. Come to find out, the shuttle has a designated gate for pick-ups and... More

A friend and I (20something girls) stayed at the Catalina Hotel at the end of June 2007 for 4 nights. We had some reservations about the hotel, after reading the hit & miss types of reviews on TripAdvisor, but we managed to snag a pretty good rate on Expedia ($65/night) so we booked it anyway. I will probably never stay... More

Where do I began.. I heard of this hotel in STAR Magazine. The pictures were great and it said that 'A list' movie stars have stayed there. I seriously doubt it. It was entirely misleading!!!!! The lobby is disgusting and dirty. The red shag carpet hasn't been cleaned probably ever! The front desk staff are extremely rude and not helpful.... More

It was amateur-hour when we stayed at Catalina hotel: First the door to our room would not open. 3 keys and 30 mins later we got in, no thanks to the staff of the hotel. The poolside service was pathetic - nobody there that had a clue as to how things work, for example to get beach chairs. Room cleaning... More

We booked this hotel using the rates given on travelzoo.com which ended up being 129 the first night 89 the second night and 49 for the third/fourth nights. I would pay NO more than that for this hotel. The room was clean and quite large - I requested a Deluxe King room. We were in 275 and had a view... More

Not being a 20 something (or even a 30 something for that matter) I had some reservations about staying at the Catalina. I’m happy to say those reservations were unwarranted. My husband and I had a fantastic time and would not hesitate to stay there again. Our only regret is that we had such a short stay. Next time we’re... More
