We enjoyed our stay. Basic but great location near everything. The room could have used a better cleaning before we checked in but bed was comfortable and the staff friendly accommodating. Even the other guests were friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

The bungalows ar small but very charming. Perfect value for person who need clean rooms, good price and good location. We like the dive lockers available. They also provided a discount on our Zip Line adventure.

We stayed in one of the cottages built in the 1920's. Now I love quaint and historic, but this was so tiny and rustic I felt like I was camping. My husband and I could not walk around in the room at the same time. there was a tiny pole with 3 plastic hangers that served as a closet. The... More

Every time I visit Catalina Island it reminds me of my childhood, especially when I stay at the Hermosa Hotel. As I was growing up, my Grandmother and I would go to CI every chance we had (6 to 12 weeks a year in all). We'd stay at the Hermosa Hotel and loved the feeling that the old place gave... More

Their site stated that the cottages were small and basic but were priced accordingly. It was what I expected and had a great stay. The small cottage had a small kitchen area that was nice to be able to use the fridge and other items. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the luggage room was nice so we could... More

We stayed August 5th and 6th, We found the staff pleasant, room clean. The place is very old, but refurbished. For the price it is a good value, my only advice is if you have any back issues you may want to stay elsewhere as the mattress in our room was the old spring type, not of high quality, and... More

I know this place is historically old but it doesn't mean the owners should not upgrade it. it is in very poor condition and barely clean enough to pass some type of hospitality inspection? the hotels charges extra for additional towels, so bring your own. there is a water shortage on the island. the hotel room doors are old with...
