I recently stayed at this great little Hotel on Catalina Island. Pros, Service was very friendly and accommodating, we were allowed to check in very early, as our room had been made ready for us. The room was clean and had modern amenities such as a flat screen TV, but was still Victorian in feel and decor, which, brings me to the point of, if you are looking for a big modern roomy hotel room, this place is not for you. In the late 18 and early 1900's, they weren't all about big and roomy!! As with all locals on Catalina Island, you are never very far from Restaurants, shops and activities! The hotel is a fair hike from the dock where the boats drop off, so if you have a lot of luggage or aren't much for walking a lot, then you might want to use a cab (there are plenty waiting when you exit the boat!). I have no negative comments about this hotel, it was quiet, the staff were friendly and helpful and the accommodations were clean and comfortable!! Just be aware of the "type" of hotel this is (Historic and old world) and that it is a little bit of a hike from the dock (We did fine with two bags, but we were only staying one night), otherwise, I highly recommend it! Have fun, you will love Catalina Island!!
