We stayed at the hotel for the first time in May 2004. Prior visits to Catalina in 2002 and 2003, we stayed at Portafino and Snug Harbor Inn. In our opinion, this did not compare to either of these places. Our balcony room on the third floor overlooked the neighborhood, and an ugly empty weedy area beneath us, and a ugly vacant lot to our left. The balony open to everyone on the top floor was actually very nice, high enough to get away from the street noise,with a lovely view. There was really nothing special about this place.....if you can get it for a bargain price go for it but otherwise choose another. The continental breakfast left much to be desired.... an orange and coffee in styrofoam, a croussant without butter, and juice...... You need to keep in mind that this hotel is not on the main street but a walk of about three blocks..... Oh try the Country Club for a delicious lunch or dinner and Descanso Beach for a delicious lunch in beautiful surroundings. Next time we plan to stay at Hotel Vista Del Mar...we had a look at their rooms and the beautiful view from their balcony.
