Decided last minute to take advantage of the freebies on Catalina Island Labor Day Weekend 2013. Found Hotel Catalina through the Birthday Promotions listing. Due to last minute reservations (6 weeks out), we weren't sure what we'd find. We were thrilled with the room. It was a pleasant stay. The hotel staff was very accommodating. The hotel looks older, but the room was recently updated. We stayed in the Courtyard Garden Wing, Room 510. The bathroom has a beautiful tiled floor from the jacuzzi tub to sink to closet. A very large bathroom for two people. We especially enjoyed this room because of the quaint patio area next to the kitchen right outside our room. Unlimited coffee, guava juice, cold & hot water and fresh baked donuts available all day. We had all day to explore the island when we checked out of the hotel. We left our bags in the office with no problems. We were thrilled to find out we could come back to the hotel to use their clean public restroom & still had access to the kitchen until our boat left.
The walk to the beach is about a 1/2 block. Very convenient. I found a gem in Catalina this weekend. I'll be back.
