My wife and I have come to Catalina for the annual Jazz festival for the last 5 years and have tried several other higher ranked hotels listed for Avalon. We stayed at this hotel for the past 3 and will book it again next year.
We love this hotel for its charm and the killer views from the upper decks. It's hard for us to talk about value for the money because all hotel rates get raised during the festival weekend. But everything in Catalina is overpriced and most of the hotels are basic.
The hotel staff have always been helpful and friendly and we never had any problems. The location is great because it is not far from the town and it is much quieter.
