So, we arrived friday afternoon, no shuttle waiting. However, apparently you have to wait for them. They supposedly come ever 10- 25minutes. We hoofed it almost all the way and then hitched a ride with a guy that works at the hotel. Super nice dude. The room was nice in need of slight repairs like a cracked tile in the bath room but, I would be astonished if you found a place in Catalina ( besides the Pavilion Hotel ) that didn't need a little up dating. The place was quiet and well kept. It had a beautiful little restaurant in the middle of the court yard next to the pool looked really nice. ( we didnt eat there but we should have ) The spa and pool were both well heated and in good working order.The heater in our room worked amazingly. I think this hotel could be a really cool place and I think it used to be. I can just imagine the in the 60's this was a " happening joint" ! I do have some gripes not many though. The shuttle service ... while convient .. was super slow 3 times we had to wait more than 45 mins for the shuttle to pick us up ( the walk back to the hotel is only 10 mins if that .. but its uphill) and they do bleach the sheets way too much ( which could be a good thing to some people ) That's about it . This place was worth the cost. Catalina on the other hand in genera...l not so much. PS the beds are super comfy ... I didn't want to wake up .. or maybe that was the drugs I think the islanders put in all our food :)
