I've been going to Catalina for over 40 years. I either get a weekly rental or stay at the Atwater. It's not a great hotel, but it gets the job done. Sometimes, it's a little noisy. Sometimes, the AC could be better. But for the price and location, it's superb. I'm going for 3 days this summer, so it's perfect. I've recommended it to friends for years. My sister didn't like it---she's more the upscale type who'll spend $300 or more. Good for her. Funny. We spent the same amount of time on the beach and running around the island and I saved $200 per day.
