My family stayed in the Hotel St Lauren over New Years with another family as travel companions. We generally found the hotel to be acceptable but not particularly enjoyable. The rooms and bathrooms are VERY dated and worn. It is an island, so I understand space is a premium, but the rooms are quite small. The staff was generally friendly and helpful, and the hotel's location was quite good (just off the main street). The price was high but considering the time and limited availability on Catalina one of the lower hotels in town.
Although it was a decent room, both families agreed that we would never return to the hotel. If budget is your top priority then this will be a decent place to sleep on the island, otherwise look elsewhere.
