My boyfriend and I stayed in Cottage H during our visit to Avalon. The one star in this review is for the convenient location of the hotel and the friendly front-desk attendants. We LOVED Catalina, and we will definitely be back, but we will never stay here again, nor will we recommend this hotel to anyone we love...perhaps people we... More

Front Desk was friendly and helpful and I was grateful to find a room on short notice. Property for the price was older and did not feel clean or fresh. Small cottages sound very quaint but fighting in rooms above us until 3:00am, bathroom rush and mold in shower, bedding felt old and floors not clean.

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
